The New York steak for $22.99 was quite small and had grizzle in it. This was the big steak which was only 8 ounces. The dinner salad was an extra $4.00 and the meal did not include bread. The battered shrimp for $19 was quite good. The portions were quite small for the money.

The food and service is always excellent. I will continue to eat there at least one time per week. This is the only fine dinning in Pocatello

We had dinner her on Christmas Eve and Rod was very accommodating. My parents have a difficult time navigating stairs so he set a table for our part of 6 in the lounge area close to the handicapped accessible door. The service was great and the food was very good. The atmosphere was very relaxing and didn't feel that we... More

When ever I am in the area I make point of having dinner at the Sandpiper. The Hawaiian Crunch Halibut is always fantastic. Great sauce and the Macadamia nut coating gives it a nice crunch.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Pocatello. I really like the prime rib. Full service bar. Friendly staff. Not extremely fast, so don't go here if you're in a hurry. Decor needs some upgrading but good atmosphere.

After traveling all day from Yellowstone back to Washington, Pocatello was a must stop. Saturday night, October 12th around 8:00 ish. After checking into the Best Western, my daughter and I decided to treat ourselves to a light, late dinner. No fast food. Our visit to the "Sandpiper" was not so good. I ordered the mac and cheese and my... More

I had a filet and my husband had the half rack of lamb. He said the lamb was "okay" but not as good as mine. My filet was tasty but not sure it was worth the $$$. Have eaten here before and it's alright. Not a 4 or 5 star by any means....but decent food for a decent price.

Love this place and visit everytime I am in the area. They have their own way of cooking and start with a special garlic/olive oil combo served with fresh warm bread. Their salads, seafood and burgers are all marvelous. Come to enjoy. Portions are very large - great to take home in a Doggie Bag

This is one of the nicer restaurants in town--we go here for celebrations or if we really want to impress visitors. There are other places in town with just as high quality (if not better or at least tastier in a different food genre) food. But if you want to feel treated by both the service, atmosphere, presentation of the... More

Sandpiper is a great find in Pocatello. We find the service to be great, good quality food, and a nice atmosphere. We will definitely eat here again when passing through Pocatello.
