“Good food, Great View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

Stopped by for lunch and we were delighted.
Physical Plant: The restaurant is in Sandpoint Idaho, which is a quaint town on Lake Pend Oreille. The restaurant s attached to the Best Western Hotel which had direct aces to the City Beach and park. The parking is easy and free. The lake views from the patio deck are amazing.

Service: We arrived at about noon to find the place packed...Yes packed! So we felt this must be a good choice for lunch. We walked around town for about an hour and a half and returned for a bite to eat. The host recognized us from our "scouting" visit and we were immediately seated on the patio, as requested. Our server arrived and quickly took our order. She helped us with determining our order, which was spot on! We both had the turkey, avocado and New Mexico chili sandwich. I ordered the salad with a red pepper vinaigrette, which was just ridiculously tasty! The wheat bread was lightly toasted, so as to add a little firmness to it, but still moist. We will return just to have these sandwiches again! We observed the food being served to other patrons and, without actually tasting it, I would say it was all scrumptious, as the other folks were silently munching away!

If there was one negative, it was that the server never came back to check on us and we ran dry on our water. It is very small, however, having served, the #1 rule for servers is keep the patrons "watered". We actually had to ask a bus-boy for more water.

There are quite a few eateries in Sandpoint, some with lake views. All have good food, however, if you are passing through and only have one shot at eating, I would strongly suggest stopping here. Did I mention that the IPA my wife chose was only $3.75 and outstanding.

“Wonderful View Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

A very nice restaurant with a great view of the Mountains looking out over the lake side beech. The outdoor dinning is covered for a very relaxing meal. The top sirloin salad was delicious and the grilled salmon was also very tasty.

“Eat with a View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

This was my first time here, we sat outside with a great view of the lake. It is situated next to a park with plenty of shady trees and free parking. I had a great burger which was slightly spicy but still good my husband had mac & cheese which was so good we were all eating from his plate. I really enjoyed eating here will return on my next visit to Idaho.

“Good meal with a Great View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

This restaurant is right on the magnificent Lake Pend O'Reille, so the view alone is worth the visit. I had mac 'n cheese with sausage and several kinds of cheeses. It was a happy family meal for all.

“Lakeview Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Driving through northern Idaho, our stop of lunch at overlooking the lake was mesmerizing. We seem to remember the food was good, but we were a bit distracted by the swimmers in the little swimming area, the sailboats tacking to jockey for position in the channel with the small pontoon. The mountains, trees, lake and sky were a perfect backdrop for a leisurely lunch with friends. We hope to return next summer, perhaps bring our suits for a swim in the lake!
