Great Food

The SnakeBite is Idaho Falls' best restaurant. The food is consistently great, with a good selection of wines and beers to compliment their food. The service has always been great too.

This is a small friendly restaurant that serves good food and has excellent service. Prices on meals are mid range and the atmosphere is inviting. I even purchased a painting off their walls while I was there the third time. Nicer than your standard family dining places with a more upscale menu and healthy choices.

A friend of mine took me to lunch here earlier this month, and I had the best fish tacos ever! Great variety of food, wonderful service in a small bistro-like setting, warm and sunny location downtown.

Great food. Love the waffle fries too. I just wish they accepted credit cards. It would have got a 5 then!

I stay away from red meat as much as possible. But this burger was so good! It has terrific flavor and fixings and it wasn't dry at all. Cool hole-in-the-wall environment too. Definitely check out this IF gem.

Downtown, quaint, excellent ambiance, good service, reasonable prices but most of all FANTASTIC food. Even their ice tea (try 1/2 raspberry, 1/2 regular) is the bomb. Their salads are wonderful. Good burgers. The best veggie burger I have ever tasted anywhere.

The burger had a black chunk of avocado that they said was guacamole. It also had no flavor and was extremely greasy. The pasta was underdone and very chewy. Also the pasta said it had prosciutto but there were only two tiny pieces in the entire bowl. This is one of the worst restaurants we have ever been to.

What a fun and delicious place downtown Idaho Falls. I used to live in town and would always bring guest from out of town to Snake Bite, food is outstanding, try any burger and pasta dishes worth a go as well. Great vibe and good people watching. Visit everytime in IF

I have only eaten there 6 times over 5 years, but the food was always consistently good. Inside dining is not for the hard of hearing, as extremely loud in there when the restaurant is full. Nice outside tables in the summer to people watch.

Prices were way high for what is served. Good was good but not enough to justify the expense. Salad was mediocre at best and dressing was billed as amazing bleu cheese, it was watery and lacked flavor. Service was amazing. Restaurant was so small and cramped.
