I eat here every time I'm in town. Actually, everyday that I'm in town. Fun place for dinner and drinks. Great service, everybody feels welcome. Reasonable prices. Great addition to Salmon.

The Junk Yard Bistro is situated on Main Street in downtown Salmon, Idaho. A tucked away place that proved to be the picture perfect hole-in-the-wall small town restaurant. A varied menu that includes sandwiches, pastas, and more... Fresh ingredients and excellent cooking techniques make this small town spot a must stop! Try the soups...very fresh. very tasty!

This is the best place to eat in Salmon. The owners are there cooking every day. It is all fresh and made from scratch. Micro brews, good wine and filled with local people. Eat at the bar, at a table or out on the back patio. Service is friendly and professional. All the metal art on the walls is for... More

This place was obviously a tiny shotgun saloon originally, so seating is really limited -- I've actually eaten standing up at the bar, huddled at the end. But the food is great -- I've even had some pretty tasty bahn mi there! Most recently, it was melted Gouda and provolone with ham and roasted red peppers on ciabatta with a... More
