We had a really nice family meal here. Our group of 10 was handled without any difficulty and everyone enjoyed the meal. Service was efficient, friendly and polite. Our server Russell was excellent, as was his assistant, who I am sorry to say I don't remember his name.......We were staying next door at the Ameritel, so the restaurant was chosen... More

We stayed next door on Monday after the 4th of July week end. We were shocked at the full house at this steakhouse type restaurant on a Monday night - many of the patrons were locals. While the place could use a decor update, we were pleasantly surprised with the olive oil, grated cheese, and garlic dipping mixture accompanying the... More

On our way to Salt Lake City we stayed 2 nights in Pocatello and ate at this restaurant both evenings. A wide choice of food ( although no trout on both nights) and it was cooked to perfection the chicken oscar was especially good. Service was friendly and efficient Our waitress Hayley was charming.

The halibut was good but a little expensive. Most items on menu ala carte. Decor and furnishings a little dated. Service good but servers not friendly.

I had dinner here last night and sat out on the patio. The service was a bit slow but they were pretty busy. The server was friendly and the conversation within earshot was hilarious. It was a table full of women celebrating someones birthday. The dinner salad was decent. The baked potato was under cooked but the prime rib was... More

Most everyone that has ever had their "house salad" - greens thrown in a creamy garlic dressing - topped with scallions, cashews and baby shrimp - loves it. And over the years, they still do it right! The service was outstanding - with the exception of having much too long of a break between the salad and main course. Not... More

We have eaten here before when staying across teh street at the Comfort Inn. It is always good and this time was no exception. I had Idaho trout and it was big filet cooked perfectly. Will come back again.

The sandpiper of years past has been the best restaurant in town. My husband and I having been going there for years. What a disappointment the last two times. There steaks are overdone, and service is poor. It is not worth the money they charge any more to go. I am finding a "new special" night place.

Restaurants like the Sandpiper restore my faith in dining out. Quality food, excellent service. Bartender makes a great lemondrop, no sugar. Highly recommend dining here. You won't be dissappointed.
