Greenbriar Inn

Gazebo at Greenbrier Inn

The Greenbriar Inn was built in 1908 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Here is a brief history: The Greenbriar Inn was originally built by Harvey Davey in 1908 as a trademark home to advertise his brick building specialty.

The 30s: The house was sold to the Mayor's mistress , and run as a bordello for about 10 years.

The 40s: Burlington Northern Railway purchased the house as a residence for the railway workers.

The 50s: Purchased by a private family and called the "Wallace Apartments".

The 60s: Headquarters for Health, Education and Welfare.

The 70s: Occupied by the Tridentine Church of Spokane, housing over thirty nuns, as well as a daycare forparishioners.

The 80s: The building stood vacant for several years, incurring a lot of damage from frozen pipes and neglect.

In 1984, Bob and Kris McIlvenna and their family moved in and began repairing and restoring the old house to its original elegance. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and has been completely restored and updated since their opening, April 1, 1985.

In 2008, we celebrated the Greenbriar's 100th Anniversary!

We have a full service dinner and tapas restaurant and feature almost fifty of the most delicious martinis in the area! The house is eclectically and tastefully decorated, with many accents that enhance the architectural beauty of the place. We have a full deck, patio, and garden seating in good weather, and two lovely fireplaces and a lounge as well as wine and martini bar on the main floor. We also have live music, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, and we are open Tuesday through Sunday from 3:15 to close.

We have five guest rooms on the second and third floor, all featuring private baths, queen beds and a welcoming yet sophisticated historic atmosphere.

We have the largest independent catering service in the area, and enjoy a fine reputation locally and on-line. See our website for the most current "deals", offerings, and menu selections, as well as a calendar of events.
