Great location. Good atmosphere.

Great location, good food. Been going here for years. But...they have the worst service in town. Don't know why. Every time I go there I just think maybe I was there on a bad service day. But, no, it doesn't get any better the next time.

Stopped for lunch and being a Monday it was easy to get a table in the front patio. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. My wife had the taco salad and she was amazed at how good and fresh it was! I had the Buffalo wing appy and it was quite good as well. I'm a bit hard to please... More

We went to Cricket's for lunch during the Art Walk the 2nd Friday of July. We got seated quickly, and they were very busy - so it took a while for our order to arrive. After 6 or 7 pm kids are not allowed in, due to it being a bar. The food was good, the kids loved their meals... More

Fettucine alfredo was good...Big portion. Delicious chowder bowl. Very sad we couldn't finish our food or take with us since we were only in town to visit.

Blackened salmon wrap and buffalo burger. French fries and onion rings. Italian sodas. Attentive staff. Our server was great, but other passing servers kept an eye on our needs.

We were looking for something to eat in the midst of all the restaurants. Highly recommend the nacho appetizer and chowder bowl. My wife prefers gluten free and they can accommodate upon request. She really enjoyed the stir fry with mung beans. They also have gluten free deserts. Enjoy

If you are going to be slow, you need to knock my socks off with your food or beverage. This did neither. Got into town late, and the got me a table. Back patio is on a parking lot, but one side of the table will get the vied of beautiful lake in the distance, the other a Toyota Corolla... More

It a fun place to eat. The waitress was very good and fun to talk to. You don't feel rushed. The place is very clean and the food is tops. They have two outside areas to eat at. The front is on the street. The back faces a small parking lot and a huge park and lake. We went for... More

We had lunch here a couple of times, as they had a sidewalk patio that provided comfortable seating. The food was average, the fries were very good. We had burgers or salads, pretty much run of the mill stuff. I liked their drink menu, fruity and cold to counter the heat. They offered a very nice Huckleberry Shandy that we... More

Best food available on Couer d'Alene's main walk street, Sherman Ave. Sprawling, with three dining areas and an outside patio this popular bar and grill is stuffy with a maroon and brass decor that is rather garish, (ala worn out brothel). Always crowded so expect slow service but the drinks are good and the food even better. Try the Cobb... More
