Outstanding Meal with Beautiful Views of the Lake

We eat here when we come out to McCall. It is expensive but well worth it. The scallop appitizer was so good, and my steak was perfect. Everyone with us enjoyed the meal. Our service was very good,. And, it is so nice looking out the windows at the lake. Perfect evening.

We attended a wine pairing dinner last night with the food paired with Spanish wine. The representative from the winery and the chef did a great job presenting the wine and explaining why the specific wine was selected with each coarse. The chef did an outstanding job with the food, of course, as well as the wine selection. However, I... More

My friend and I were so excited to eat here. We ordered a bowl of the trout chowder and were blown away. We wanted to try a bit of everything so we ordered the foie gras, but weren't impressed -- it was very cherry-fied and took away from any other flavors present. We finished with the filet and it was... More

The Narrows has a great view of the lake. Staff have always been very good. My last dine they were attentive and informed. Food was generally quite good -- halibut a tad overcooked. Overall for McCall a pretty quality place to dine but is pricey for the area.

Can't beat the view, but obviously you must eat before it gets dark. Nice warm ambiance, not very noisy so you can have a conversation. Good variety on the menu. Professional service and tasty food. Nice well rounded wine list. Overall a very enjoyable meal. It's nice not to have to leave the resort to go to dinner.

Ambiance Excellent. Well appointed, seating is separated enough to have private conversations. And the breathtaking view of the Payette Lake and the mountains still amazes after many visits. Staff Pretty good. They do have a high server turnover, so you may have a junior server, but they are all pleasant and ready to help. The 'new' chef (about a year)... More

We have been visiting Idaho for 40 years. The beef tenderloin was the best beef we have eaten in a long time. We called it McCall Kobe, as it melts in your mouth!! The service was impeccable, the view over McCall Lake at sunset unbeatable - but the skills of our Chef were truely superior!

5 star view, 3 star food. Average 4 stars. After reviewing the burger menu for burger night Thursday we made a trip to the narrows grill. Unfortunately the lamb burger was not a option that night so the buffalo burger was ordered instead with fries of course. Also ordered a baby wedge salad. Beer and huckletini (huckleberry martini) were also... More

We have been visiting McCall for almost 40 years but had only stayed at Shore Lodge once before, for a wedding. We had walked the grounds many times and marveled at the view and the location. We live in Boise now and saw that Justin Winery was hosting a Winemaker's Dinner there. We figured that this was a great time... More

My wife and I were vacationing in McCall, Idaho and decided to attend a Justin Winery wine dinner at the Narrows Grill at the Shore Lodge. This turned out to be one of the best wine dinners we ever attended. From the moment we arrived, we were treated with complete professionalism! The entire staff, sommelier, chef and spokeswoman from the... More
