We had dinner on the patio and enjoyed the fireworks over the river. The food and service was excellent especially on such a busy night like the 4th.

Service here was good. Busy night but they managed to keep up and we sat outside under the cover enjoying the rain. Ordered the salmon flat grilled and it was good. Drinks were cold and the menu has a good selection for all. Little spendy, but once in a while it is nice to treat yourself.

When we have friends in from out of town, we more than often will choose Sandpiper. The location on the river, particularly in the summer when you can eat outside, is a fun atmosphere. And the food is excellent, with great steaks and fish and many other options as well. You cannot go wrong with Sandpiper.

We had great salads, steaks, potatoes and desserts at Sandpiper. Many people come there for special times, such as birthdays and anniversaries.

Very disappointed. We have gone twice now. We tried to get a table by the rails outside, so we could see the river better. They wouldn't let us because there were six in out party. The prices for the meals were affordable but the food on the skimpy side. But at least my steak was cooked like it should be.... More

Great location on the banks of the Snake green belt. Outdoor seating in a nice setting. My husband and I both enjoyed their salmon special. Lots of seafood choices.

We were staying close by and had heard about this restaurant. It is a local style that must have great attendance due to the size of its parking lot. It sits right on the Snake RIver and a beautiful landscaping scenery for you to view. Also, has an outside eating location. It was 106 when we were there so sat... More

This restaurant was next door to our hotel Le Ritz which meant I did not have to drive any more that day. We had a 15 minute wait for a table so enjoyed a drink at the bar. Menu was fairly pricey but we found a couple of specials that were just under $20 each. These were Brandied Pork and... More

When I first came to town, I came to this restaurant with my sister to have lunch. Now we are leaving Idaho Falls, 17 years later, and our friends took us to dinner here. The weather was perfect for sitting outside. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. We started with artichoke spinach dip. Our group had the trout, a... More
