Very good food and service

4 of us ate dinner here. All of us had different dishes and all were pleased with what we had. The menu provided interesting options. The waitperson was friendly and helpful. All in all, we were pleased with our dining experience.

Our entire family of four had different dishes and every one had an excellent meal. This is one of the most enjoyable meals in the Spokane/Coeur d' Alene area we have had. They also have gluten free choices because the owner's mother is allergic to gluten. My daughter is allergic to gluten, so this is a concern for us. I... More

I always enjoy my meals at Scratch. It is a top notch restaurant with an interesting menu and the food is always very good. The staff is most accommodating and it is a pleasant atmosphere.

This restaurant has everything going, I just wish the food wasn't so sweet. Not over the top sweet but most menu items land on the sweet side. Some people may like it but a nice complex balance would be much better. Still a nice place.

We chose this place of a host of restaurants in Coeur d'Alene. We looked at the menu and thought it sounded OK. It is basic looking place. We shared an appetizer, a main course and a dessert. All were very good. The service was prompt and friendly. We were there on a Wednesday night and all wines were 50% off.... More

Yes happy hour prices are lower but the quality was much lower too. We had the house wine, which was decent but the coconut shrimp was greasy and limp with a sauce that came from a bottle. The Caesar salad was passable. I wouldn't go back here, but on a Monday night, we didn't have many other choices.....

We had breakfast here at the recommendation of the Flamingo Motel owner. It was a very good recommendation as the food was very good and the service was excellent.

The place was half full and we waited 45 mins for our appetizer. Then waited another 30 mins for dinner and it was undercooked and terrible. The waiter didn't offer anything as a replacement so one of our guests DIDNT EAT. We got the bill and asked for our appetizer to be taken off, because of the awful service (and... More

Walking through downtown Coeur d'Alene I was surprised by all the restaurant choices; however, Scratch caught my eye as they had their menu displayed outside. This small corner eatery had an excellent menu with lots of variety making it easy for our entire party to find something they liked. The food was delicious, fresh, and fairly priced! I would definitely... More

Scratch offers a decent selection of unembellished but healthy choices in a pleasant atmosphere. If the local college hangout brewpubs and sports bars aren't your speed on a visit, Scratch will do nicely. Particularly good for an early breakfast, it's mildly overpriced, but par for the area. They will happily amend a dish to suit your taste. Live singer-songwriter music... More
