Decent food, noisy atmosphere

The food was pretty good when we visited, it's a decent place to get seafood. The ambience of the "restraunt" is actually pretty noisy because it's actually a bar and grill

This place is a favorite with locals but I have never understood why. The bar is noisy, the appetizers are bland, the food is average. The only thing this place has going for itself is it's view in the spring when the baby ducks and geese roam the grounds. I have been here several times and never had anything more... More

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
