The service was good and so was the food. Nothing out of the ordinary, but really overpriced. Dinner didn't even include a salad.

The question here is whether restaurants should be judged on an absolute standard or on some sort of relative standard that takes into consideration the location. We were in Pocatello for one night on a road trip and have no basis for comparison with other Pocatello restaurants, but it really wasn't very good at all. These days there is no... More

Rainbow Trout, Steak and (of Course) Idaho Baked Potatoes! This food was spectacularly prepared and the service was top notch. What an excellent meal in such a lovey setting for the money!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Sandpiper. My husband loves good steak but can't eat anything that isn't well done. He ordered a filet, which can be a challenge for some chefs. While he did have to send it back once, it ended up being perfect -- cooked well enough and very flavorful -- not shoe leathery at all.... More

We were passing through and saw great reviews on here for this restaurant Boy were they wrong. Husband ask for medium rare prime rib and baked potato. Got way over cooked dry prime rib and burnt potato. I wanted the short ribs and risotto. Got burned roast beef and mush rice. Our son who is 3 years old wanted chicken... More

This restaurant has the best quality steaks and seafood in town. I always go prime rib or halibut and it's off the charts. Expect to drop $25 per dish for those options though, but worth it.

This place is an old Pocatello stand by. It is always predictably good at a reasonable cost. It is close to most hotels and ISU.

The restaurant is right off the I-15 exit. Very nice food. I had the prime rib. I ordered it rare but it came medium.But it was still good. Pleasant seating on the patio. It only cost a little more than your typical highway fare (large cut off prime rib was$25.-) but it was so much better!

amazing server and delicious food. The hotel next door (Ameritell ) recommend this place and we were not disappointed. They also offered discount on our check when we showed them our room keys. we loved the steak, stuffed mushrooms and the mac and cheese.
