The waitress did great when we first got there, but she was slower and slower as time went by. It took an hour to get served and I didn't get my meal until everyone else at the table was through over half of their meal. I was so upset about the service, I didn't bother to remember what we all... More

The location of the Sandpiper is fantastic and the patio is beautiful in the warmer months for watching the world cruise by along with Snake River. The food on the other hand limits our desire to frequent this establishment, and we're residents of Idaho Falls. Service is solid, though the food is average at best. There's better options for food... More

This is a fast-paced, busy, fun, restaurant on the Snake River. It's huge, with a seating capacity of 600...300, of which, can be seated outside on the lovely, fireplace-lined, patio. This restaurant is a well-oiled machine, with great food and excellent service! We had a delicious dinner in the bar, because my boyfriend wanted to watch the baseball game, AND... More

One of my favorite places to eat in Idaho Falls. Nice variety on the menu, my favorite is the house salad. You can also order it as a large dinner salad.

Went to the Sandpiper last week. My Dad was taking the family out to dinner to celebrate my birthday. Wanted someplace that had great food but that wouldn't be too noisy (he's 91 and has a tough time hearing sometimes.) I called ahead and visited with the hostess who set us up in a private room with a great view... More

We went for our anniversary. I got a seafood dish that was a big disappointment. The only good thing I could say about it was that the noodles were okay. My husband ordered a steak that wasn't anything special. He said he wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the one he got and one from Applebees. Sitting outside... More

The steak we had was excellent and was referred to us by hotel next door. Only disappointment was we asked for their red wine special of the month and they were out. Service was decent and atmosphere was nice. We ate indoors and then later saw they had outdoor fires next to some of the tables. We will return

Convenient to the City Center and nice view from the dining room. The menu choices were plenty and the entrees served were delicious! We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was quite friendly. Enjoyed so much that later in the trip we stopped at the Pocatello Idaho location as well.

Thank Frank H
