When you come out west there's things you want to see. It's not the golden arches large hotel chains or strip malls. You can find these things at home. Your looking for a family run business where the owners are their everyday doing their best to help people enjoy their vacation have a good time and leave with good memories.... More

Former Marie Callander owners keep up quality standards while serving the best cornbread and baby back ribs. The cobb salad and B.L.T.A. on toasted sour dough is a lot to eat and very tasty. And, $2.50 for a draft beer - unheard of! Unfortunately, smoking is allowed in the bar where we enjoy sitting and watching the locals.

We decided to try this restaurant after looking at Tripadvisor ratings we found the food to be excellent and more than ample. A tuna sandwich got cranked up a notch with tomato, pickles and lettuce in a toasted sourdough serving. The homemade potato salad was superb. My wife had the chili and pronounced it excellent as well as the corn... More

Good service, good coffee, eggs done to perfection. Portions were generous without being wasteful. We left satisfied, not stuffed. Especially good hash browns. Server was new to the profession, and brought a very sunny, humorous attitude. We will be back.

This is great Idaho down-home cooking and it is wonderful. Try the ribeye steak…you will not believe how good it is. The salad, homemade cornbread and baked Idaho potato make this a feast fit for a king…or queen!

We went on valentines 2/14/2014. There were four of us we asked for 2 separate tickets. We where told very rudely they do not split tickets... The waitress was very rude we thought maybe it was a lack of sunshine because it was snowy. The owner was so busy selling blue jeans and was bringing out arm loads of blue... More

I am slightly unclear what you wanted to see for yourself. A few simple explanations; At the time I brought out the Levis for the gal, this was a special request per her. You are unaware of her story/circumstances so please withhold judgment. Plus, it was the perfect time for her to come back to our business, since it was... More

Wonderful fun place. Went 3 times in the week we spent at the resort. Excellent chef, Joshua McMinn. Young, nice & fun. Also went a 4th time for Apple Carmel Pecan pie, a secret recipe, the best ever. We had steak, fish, salad's, stuffed baked potatoes & appetizers & have never had better food. Older, rustic & quaint with clothes... More

The food was cold and boring. Not a lot of flavor. My Trout was overcooked and dried out. The restaurant was clean. It took a very long time to get our food. There were eight in our party and the waitress refused to give us separate checks. We ate at Pond's Lodge the day before and it was a lot... More

I think this might have been our only choice for dining out the night we stayed, so I wasn't sure how good it would be. They were very busy, but we didn't have to wait too long. We were pleasantly surprised by the meal. The selection was limited and a bit pricey (but expected when there are no other choices),... More

To be fair, I did not stay at the lodge, but I did eat in the restaurant and spent some time in the bar. The food in the restaurant was marginal at best. The real problem was the attitude of the staff. We were there with a large group and I guess the first indicator should have been the big... More

I, Connie Funkhouser am so thankful that I was present during the entire time this reviewer was @ Island Park Lodge. I was the individual taking names for reservations this particular evening. You gave us the name of Peacock, since you were trying to be so funny. Yes, you delayed your original reservation several times since your group was "enjoying"... More
