Went on Hotel recommendation. The building and view was very very nice. Higher end menu. The food was good and actually reasonably priced for what we got. No complaints there. The main complaint was the couple seated behind us which definitely had too much to drink and were arguing very loud and cussing. The managers did nothing to stop or... More

Without TripAdvisor we would never have known about this place. We were only passing through on our way to Wyoming but it was time for lunch. This place is not on the main road, but only a very very short drive off and well worth it. The view over the Snake River Canyon is amazing. The atmosphere is casual with... More

We went for their happy hour and tried their Sangria (watered down) and Margaritas, likewise quite weak. We tried their potato skins and tempura green beans. Neither was impressive. However in spite of the lackluster food and drink, we did have a nice time because their outdoor space is so lovely.

The food is okay. The pricing is high. The view is hard to beat. I felt the service was good but the food could be better.

The food and service were both way above par. Excellent in all respects. The seating on the patio overlooks the Snake River gorge and is wonderful in warm weather. This is a must do.

Arrived early for our reservation and were seated in the bar area and then shown to our table. Heather was a wonderful server who took time to explain the menu and we both ordered the Tomato Bisque followed by the Pork Tenderloin which was delicious. Great value and a wonderful evening made better by Heather's attentive service.

Situated high on the cliffs overlooking the Snake River, visitors to this restaurant enjoy a view of a deep canyon, with golf courses on either side of the river at the bottom. Sitting on the lovely patio, diners enjoy a view of the Perrine Bridge where base jumping paragliders can often be seen jumping from the bridge and floating to... More

Eat outside for a panoramic view of the Perrine Bridge and the Snake River canyon. I don't think you can go wrong, no matter what you order.

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!
