Nice view

The food was decent, nothing too memorable. The service was average. The view was very nice, though. They have a good location.

Honestly I enjoyed the food at Smitty's more and it was half the price. The Sandpiper is nice, but you should plan on spending at least $60 or more for two people. The food was good I just doubted the value.

The atmosphere is wonderful and the service was great. We love the food - especially the prime rib and crab legs. We will go back over and over again.

We stayed across the street at Super 8 and walked to this restaurant to get a bite to eat, we were there late but there were many people who were enjoying their dinner late. The steak we ordered were to perfection, nicely prepared. Condiments that accompanied my order was more then sufficient. It looked like there is a bar in... More

Great atmosphere and service, and the food was so good! I had one of the best salads I've ever had. My husband had a steak, and he is hard to please with that; he loved it! My SIL loves their soup and bread. All in all amazing food. Great drinks too!

The location along the river is lovely, an outdoor dining area weather permitting. The staff is efficient and friendly. The food is always good. We dined there twice recently, once on Mother's day. We were spending the night in Idaho Falls on our way home from a graduation in Montana. It was Mother's day and we had no reservation. They... More

Always the best food. the service is good as well. You have to ask for the bread now. and the bread is delicious. Nice atmosphere and view. I had a steak and the almond crusted Halibut combo. I love both so this is nice. the salad with the shrimp was always good but seemed to be smaller not quite like... More

I was in town on business and stopped at the Sandpiper for dinner on a Tuesday evening. The lounge is a nice, casual atmosphere and the restaurant location right along the river is great. The prior night I had steak (I'd normally have prime rib at the Sandpiper) so I went with grilled chicken. My meal was very good. It's... More

I've been here once before and it was good, but it was excellent last time I went. I got the filet and it was the most tender steak I've had in a decade. Ate the whole plate and felt joyfully miserable the rest of the night, I was so full!

I went here with a couple of business associates and this place was recommended by a local. It's difficult to find great service but our wait person was fantastic....this is the reason for 4 stars...the food was just a little better then average...a lot of fattening choices. Appetizers were pretty much all fried stuff. I had the blackened tuna with... More
