Description: We are blessed to be in this one-in-a-million location, perched on the south rim of The Canyon, in the great state of Idaho, 486 vertical feet above the beautiful Snake River. On a clear day you can see Soldier Mountain to the northwest, the Pioneer Range due north and Pomerelle to the east. What they say is true.. Location is everything!

“Great food; Great View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

We ate at Elevation 486 for the first time last night. The food was great. The view was absolutely amazing. It's a little more expensive than we usually budget for dinner, but well worth it. It's nice to splurge every once in awhile and this restaurant was well worth it. Reservations are recommended.

“"A delicious meal with a beautiful view"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

The food was spectacular! It was cooked to perfection and very flavorful. The service was good and friendly. The food came out in a timely manner. The location is also wonderful. I would recommend sitting outside, if the weather permits, because the view is amazing. The atmosphere of this restaurant is great.

“Great food with nice views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Great view of the river and canyon, especially if you can sit outside. Service was pleasant and efficient. We did not have reservations but went early and were seated immediately. However, when we left, there was a line of people waiting. So, if you are going later, would recommend reservations. We stayed at the Quality Inn and received a discount coupon for 10% off an entrée. Not a lot but every little savings helps. Food was very good. I don't think you would be disappointed if you ate here. Plus, we were told it was a locally owned restaurant, which is nice to support.

Enjoyed a wonderful meal there over 4th of July. The food was great and cooked the way we liked it. Also enjoyed a couple of drinks and the view into Snake River Canyon is superb.

We were referred by our hotel to your restaurant not knowing what to expect. Once seated on the patio, we were enamored by the view. Who knew that the view even existed. Then my wife and I had the clams which were a delight followed by some of the best copper river salmon either of us have ever had. I know this sounds too good to be true which is what we thought, however I encourage others to try this restaurant for yourselves. Perhaps we will see you there as we will be back on our way home.
