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

Awesome place to eat, older home converted into a restaurant. Great staff, nice bar. Entire staff very knowledgeable about helping you pick out your food if needing to make a tough choice from their menu. Within walking distance of the Best Western Edgewater. Prices were very reasonable. Have local beers on tap.

Went for Monday night supper during vacation with family. No problem getting a table for 7 which was great. Love the traditional steakhouse decor (don't change it!) and the menu was nice. We all loved our entrees - the steaks were fabulous, tuna steak was gorgeous, shrimp was great, fettuccine was good but the fries were to die for!! The... More

I like the Hydra, for the buck it's great. And I really like salad bars which I hope stays. The food is good for a small steak house. Sandpoint is no place for a high end stake house.
