The Resort Restaurant is about as rustic a place as you can find, with pressed wood wall and ceiling panels, an open kitchen, and self-serve beer, wine, and soft drinks from the cooler, but that is exactly what makes this family-owned and run restaurant so charming! We came in late Sunday night, September 11th, and sat down next to a... More

While hiking the Stanley Lake area, we ran across the restaurant. Within 100 yards of the exit from Stanley Lake, this restaurant is on the property of the RV park. Although we had planned to cook at our campsite, the lure of smoked pork ribs made us stop. We ordered the ribs to go and found them to be moist,... More

This place should be #1 for food, service, cleanliness, inexpensive, friendliness. I am an honest rater and don't give many 5 stars. Tried their slow smoked prime rib dinner. Excellent! Served only on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Menu items for even the most picky-eaters. Complimentary coffee and tea with meal! Perfect stop for breakfast too.Thank you Pot Belly Cafe in the... More

The signs advertises BBQ ribs and smoked Prime Rib. We didn't try the Prime Rib, but the ribs and sauce were good.

Coffee was free, strong, and hot. Had the waffle and even the syrup was served warm. Prices are the lowest we're seen in a long time. A little bit out of the way, but worth the trip. Would definitely go there again.

This is a very folksy restaurant...they will call you "Hun" and take the time to visit with you. They also have the most awesome smoked prime rib special. We actually went out back to find out what smoker they used...we've been trying to perfect prime rib for years and these guys have it down. They also had great ribs and... More

We dined here every chance we got during our recent trip to Stanley, ID. Very good service and the Bar-B-Q Ribs were exceptionally good. Cute decor, clean and very friendly!

I really am having a hard time reviewing this place. Only because more people might fine out about this it. If you need table cloths and all that stuff please don't go. If you want great food, just don't go when I'm there.

Great mountain atmosphere and just good food! Close to Stanley Lake, so after a great filling breakfast, we took a hike in the gorgeous Sawtooth 's. Friendly staff with knowledge of the area.

There is absolutely no better place to dine while in Stanley. The food is finger-licking good, reasonably priced and brought to you by some of the friendliest/ornery people you'll ever encounter! It was such a nice change (and huge relief) to find really good food while traveling thru some pretty high traffic tourist areas. We had lunch there and breakfast.... More

Description
This is listed as an RV resort, but I notice most of the reviews aren't about the park -- they are about the restaurant. After dining here this weekend, I think it deserves a place among restaurants as well (it was very good).
