A nice meal on Sherman

Dined here on the second Friday of the month. Overheard a different waitress apologizing for the delay as they help to service food for somewhere else nearby. Didn't know that, when we arrived we were told that the kitchen was behind and entrees could take up to 40 minutes. We decided to stay... read more

We had a great day in Coeur d'alene, took the cruise, had drinks, shopped and then topped off our day for dinner at Scratch. We had very friendly staff, our waitress was a sweetie and very easy going! She made sure we... More

I went here on a Friday afternoon with my 15-year-old daughter. We ordered the signature salad, with chicken, Asian ribs, shrimp, and crème brûlée with berries. Everything was fresh, came out quickly, and tasted delicious. The bill for both of us together was $40 They were interesting paintings on the wall and it was a very Bistro atmosphere. There were...

I have tried this two restaurant two times. The location is good for downtown but I have yet to be really impressed. Menu is very different but have had nothing that says good enough to make me go rushing back.

We really enjoyed the salmon blt, bbq pork tacos, and signature salad. The signature salad had brie, apples, and candied walnuts. The service was also prompt and friendly.

While in CDA on business, we walked into town looking for a restaurant with another couple. We had no reservation, and although busy, were promptly seated. The server was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was terrific, the setting eclectic and casual, and the wine list very good. I would think if was a local that this... More

We ate here after enjoying the farmers market which is literally right outside the door. We had a fish taco and BBQ pork dinners and both were very good. Wed is also half price wine bottle night so a good deal can be had on that. The restaurant was empty when we started although some folks were seated outside. It... More

We wish we'd have discovered this place two weeks ago when first arriving in the area. The burgers were perfectly prepared to order. The wine suggestion was on point and the Creme Brûlée was the best ever anywhere in the country. Great service and food - very nice experience!

Why do I remember the name of my tacos weeks latter? Because they were so good! I'll have them again next time. Love the outdoor seating.
