Good Prime Rib

After a long wet bicycle ride, a good piece of red meat and a cool beverage was in order! We enjoyed the salad bar and the prime rib was very tasty. Enjoyable atmosphere.

This is a wonderful steak house. It's looks are deceiving. The carpets are worn and the place is a maze of stairs and corridors, but the food was amazing. I had the prime rib and it melted in my mouth. My husband had steak. Both entrees came with loads of vegetables and the meat was cooked exactly as we ordered... More

We are here every year and every year it is wonderful. Their beef comes from Wood's Meats which is local. We always eat in the bar to avoid small children haha. Prime rib, chicken oscar, and the baseball sirloin were all perfectly cooked at medium rare. Green beans were yummy too. Hot tip : one of us ordered fries and... More

Awesome steak, Laughing Dog beer, and a well optioned salad bar all contribute to a great dining choice. The Hydra isn't a fine dining establishment in the stuffy, dress-up, expected meaning of the word, rather it's a relaxed, family-friendly place to get great food.

If we hadn't been told to try Hydra we may have missed it as it's not on the main street. The recommended huckleberry margarita piqued our interest (having been introduced to huckleberries in Idaho). It is good! The prime rib was also recommended & did not disappoint. It was cooked perfectly. The green beans, along with the ubiquitous potato, were... More

Nice surroundings. Excellent service. Dinner was delicious. Reasonable prices. The Carrot Cake looked wonderful. Dinner filled me so that I didn't dare order the Carrot Cake. I'll plan better the next time.

We've been here numerous times now, and never been disappointed. All of the dishes are good, and the servers are all very friendly and efficient. The décor could use a little updating, but we still love coming here.

Our server went out of his way to make sure we had an enjoyable meal. Food was very good. Due to a throat problem I can't eat most food, I asked if they could make something off the menu and they were able to poach a couple of eggs and make it look like it was the nights special! My... More
