Crispy dry ribs with coarse black pepper and rock salt.
Gorgonzola pizza – Double smoked bacon with roasted roma tomatoes mozzarella and gorgonzola.
So I have been here a few times in the past, and thus thought it was well time I reviewed Steamworks. Not overly busy for a friday night.. We were seated right across from the bar, so the bartender was our server.
He did a great job, he was very attentive, and checked on us regular. More so then most servers do. Wasn’t to noisy this night, but some nights it can get very noisy.
We ordered two dishes as usual, the Dry Ribs and the Gorgonzola Pizza.
The Dry Ribs.. Oh man were they dry.. and overly salty. With no hint of black pepper as advertised. So was disappointed. Overcooked and just dry. Even for Dry Ribs.
the Gorgonzola Pizza was surprisingly good. Shannon’s comment describes it best.
Overall good place and will continue to go back once in awhile.

We were seated promptly and it wasn’t very busy on a friday evening. Our waiter was very attentive for having to work the bar as well.
We started with the dry ribs as an appy. As advertised, they were crispy and drrrry. I failed to find much cracked pepper on them and the meat was definitely overcooked and dry. I could have used a sauce to combat this problem.
The gorgonzola pizza was surprisingly good! The crust was thin, but not the crispiest bottom. It was topped with fresh ingredients and was generous on the toppings. There was a nice balance of flavours. The roma tomatoes were sweet, refreshing and cut through the richness of the gorgonzola and smokiness of the bacon.
