Second time I've been to Forty-One South this summer and this is a wonderful restaurant. I went tonight specifically for the steamed clams with Cajun sausage; served in a light cream sauce with grilled crusty bread for dipping. Fabulous!!! A beautiful setting, friendly staff and excellent service are the icing on the cake. Great wine list as well. Can't wait... More

We have been to Forty One South twice now, and both times our meals were fantastic! The last time we visited for Valentine's Dinner. They had a special menu for the occassion. Both of our meals were delectable. Dessert was fantastic and our server informed us that he makes all of the desserts for the restaurant. Impressive!

We were on vacation at The Lodge and were happy to find that 41 South was as good as last year. Service is excellent, food is top notch. The waygu burger was life-changing--SO good in every way. Over the course of our vacation we also had the ribs, the chicken cordon blu, crab bisque, and the steak (was it a... More

This is the perfect location for a dinner outside overlooking the lake. The staff was very efficient and friendly, we felt very welcome. The goat cheese with cranberry jam and crostini was excellent as an appetizer. Two of us had the beef shoulder special and it was tasty but lacked juiciness or a sauce to make up for the crispy...

2 couples out for Valentine's day - amazing meal. We each had something different - salmon, trout and shrimp special, steak and scallops. All were cooked perfectly, and the presentation & sides were wonderful. Appetizers of warmed goat cheese and wings were also incredible. Our waiter was fun and helpful, and the beer and wine complemented our meal. First time... More

I have been to Forty One South several times and never been disappointed. If you want gluten free, their chef is great. They work hard to provide fresh meals with a good bottle of what you want. The view is amazing. Lake Pend Oreille is right out the door. You can see Sandpoint, Idaho right across the river, and the... More
