Ours was a spur of the moment weekday visit. We initially planned on dining elsewhere, but changed our mind when we got to Sandpoint and realized that we both were craving sushi. It's kind of an out of the way little place, but once we found it, wow....the view from the deck is really lovely. There seemed to be a lot of wait staff for mid-week...three sushi chefs, a hostess, busser, two wait persons and a manger. All we very friendly and attentive, service was extremely fast. We shared four different specialty rolls including the California roll with real crab, the Snow Ghost and two others I won't even attempt spelling. All were very nicely prepared and presented. The rolls are on the small size but not terribly expensive. Our waitress recommend a sake that we really enjoyed. The atmosphere is really nice; we were probably a bit under dressed in jeans and t-shirts, something we felt a little bad about. We are looking forward to a return trip.

If this were in a big city with easy access to fresh fish, it would probably be 3 stars... but I know it's a pain to get fresh fish to Northern Idaho, and to have a relatively expansive and creative menu.... so I give it 4.

Rolls were fairly creative, fish was relatively fresh and tasty. Prices were decent, although signature rolls were a tad smaller than I had hoped for the price. Presentation was pretty good, but rolls could have used a little bit better shape.

Service was good, but they took too long to get the sushi out. Our waitress was thoughtful enough to tell us ahead of time it was about 30 minutes for orders to come out, (ours took about 40 min) and suggested an appetizer from the kitchen. which was faster. The place was only moderately crowded when we sat down, and even less 30 minutes in.... so I think they need another sushi chef. we were not in a big hurry, but the wait was a little excessive.

Ambiance is nice.. it used to be a breakfast buffet room for the resort, and it was moderately converted into a pretty nice little sushi bar/restaurant.During daylight, it has nice views of the lake from the north side of the seating area and sushi bar.

Girl's weekend and we were looking for a good sushi restaurant. Well...we found it! Shoga Sushi Bar was just fantastic! The service was wonderful and the food was terrific. We went straight for the sushu menu. I had the Nigiri platter and my friend had the Volcano roll...WOW! Both were delicious, fresh and beautifully presented. The Volcano Roll inspired 2 other patrons sitting near us at the sushi bar to order the same. They were not dissappointed. We finished with a shared Flourless Chocolate cake and it was the best I have ever eaten...recipe pelase!Beside the great food, the view is gorgeous...beautiful Lake Pend Oreille within a stones throw. The atmosphere is very comfortable. The shushi bar is the main focus (as the name applies) but they have a few tables for parties of 4 or more which was nice. A cozy fireplace was burning to warm the place up as it was freezing outside. The patrons and staff are very friendly and we just had a wonderful evening of food and fun. Can't wait to return.
