Stopped in here after a rafting trip with some friends. The service was fast and friendly, the prices fair, the portions big, and the food delicious. None of us had anything left on our plates. Corkage fee if you bring your own wine.

We read the reviews and decided to try eating lunch here. The food here was outstanding....chicken salad sandwich was wonderful. Their pasta salad was mixed with poppyseed dressing and it was a hit with our group. The potato salad is a bit on the pickley taste, just not our style, but it was also tasty. Cold beer with frosted glasses!... More

There are lots of good choices for lunch, all very tasty and attractively presented. The atmosphere is great (no smoking) and the service is good also, with everything reasonably priced.

We chose The Junk Yard Bistro based on the reviews from Trip Advisor. We walked in to a full restaurant and sat at the bar. There was the bar tender, one waitress, and two chef's. Wow! I was so impressed being able to watch the chef's prepare our food. The waitstaff did amazing. The food was out of this world!... More

Junkyard is a staple of my summers in salmon. The rice &noodle bowls are a great affordable option that you would not expect to find in good ole Salmon City

We stopped in here on the basis of TA reviews. It looks a little smallish and potentially "unrewarding" when you first see it. But, we were hungry and so we gave it a try. Very glad we did! The interior of this place is best described as "lost potential." Absolutely classic bar and period cabinet coolers being used, but not... More

Trip advisor review got us to this funky little bistro...I am glad. We were here on a Sat afternoon for lunch and it was very busy. Really good food from a very interesting menu. Service was great with a very friendly server. If you are in Salmon, it is a must do!

We would never have stopped for dinner without reading the reviews. We were traveling all day and figured at 10pm in Salmon, ID we were out of luck. The food was good. My husband got the Garlic mushroom burger with pasta salad as a side and I got the special grilled cheese which had cucumber and spinach and I got... More

If there was a Junk Yard Bistro in EVERY town in America, I'd be content. I order lunch at LEAST once a week, it's my favorite! They have amazing EVERYTHING! I highly recommend trying if you haven't already!
