Good food, lovely location

Nice restaurant, great location, nice staff. The menu has a variety of choices to fit all taste buds and ages as well as a nice choice of wine and other beverages. We enjoyed it.

Terrible ambiance. No music, tables are too close together. Great location, completely ruined by horrible food. Overcooked seafood, steaks not cooked as specified. Waited forever for bread and salad. The restaurant wasn't even full. About 5 tables full. We had a party of four, and looked on as couples next to us were served their food. Waited 45 minutes for... More

It may have been partially our fault for taking so long to make up our minds, but when we finally did order, it took a long time to get our over cooked seafood. Maybe we should have ordered beef or chicken. My over cooked salmon dish was buried under so much pesto that I had to scrape it off. My... More

Upon entering this restaurant, I noticed several staff members sitting in the back of the dining area texting and looking bored, so first impressions were not great as far as the service we might receive. The menu was extensive, and its offerings were infinitely better on print than in reality. Plates, which averaged over $25 each were not nearly as... More

We ate at the restaurant since we stayed at the hotel. The starter showder was good but the steaks were just so & so. Also the service was just minimal. So all in all this place earns barely an average mark.

Was there for dinner, the clam chowder soup was great so we eagerly anticipated our main courses - I had the special - steelhead trout w/ potato gnochi - the trout was dry, overcooked & not very appetizing, the gnochi came in a white sauce - it wasn't hot, bearly lukewarm - I ate 4 pieces. He had chicken penne... More

I've had the Edge's salads on several occasions. The portions are large and the salads very tasty. The restaurant overlooks the Clearwater River and they do have deck seating. You can also order full service in the bar. The staff is very attentive. Overall, it's a great place to dine.

Nice view of the river. Friendly staff. Too noisy inside for our taste, no doubt due to the hardwood, all the voices carried. It didn't help that 4 very loud gals were discussing their life history next to us. We were not very hungry so we split a burger. They didn't have the huckleberry pie that was on the menu... More
