Always love the Sandpiper. we sat outside and it was very comfortable despite the hot weather. our orders and drinks were served up quickly with great service. The food was very good. one suggestion the clam chowder was kind of like gravy rather than chowder. I'm not a chef but maybe more milk or... read more

We ate dinner with some other family members recently. I must be honest and say that our expectations may have been too high. The food was average in taste but a little pricey we felt. Service was good but not exceptional. We also felt that the menu was limited. A lot of our feelings may come from the chairs that... More

The Sandpiper is conveniently located to many of the most popular hotels & has outdoor seating with a great view of the snake river. The food is truly delicious but go in expecting to pay $20+ a meal. This is not a small town joint & is really geared more towards adults & gatherings than families with small children! They...

Sandpiper is always a good choice. Food is consistent. Good. Service is typically great! This last experience was great! Had an incident with a bad glass of wine. Other than that it was great!

I was very apprehensive about eating here. We had our Delta flight cancelled for mechanical reasons and were shuttled to the Shiloh Inn next door which was horrible. We had not eaten and were forced to go somewhere still open and within walking distance. The Sandpiper was right next door. It is very old and needs updating. Their floor sweeper... More

We stopped in after checking into hotel, it was right next door and after being in the car for 10-12 hours nobody wanted to get back in car to go eat, so we walked over to this restaurant...should have gotten back in car and went somewhere. Their kids menu is very limited and EXPENSIVE!! $7.99 per plate...the waiter said they... More

We flew into town (small airplane) and Kim at Aero Mark aviation recommended that we eat at this restaurant. She said it was the best in town. Well we are always skeptical when someone says that. But you know she was right! It was a nice evening and we ate out on the patio. The service was Johnny on the... More

We were staying down the road and I had chosen this place because of the reviews and the proximity to our room. The food was really good but a little steep. The view from the patio was very enjoyable...a lovely view of the river and my daughter got a kick out of watching the Canadian geese and gosslings passing by... More

The Sandpiper has a long history of being a top spot for fine dining in Idaho Falls. Rack of Lamb, Hawaiian Crunch Halibut, amazing Ahi Ahi tuna dish. Great atmosphere and a deck on the Snake River make it a wonderful place to meet friends or do a dinner date.
