Very cute!

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... read 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.

The food here is fantastic, my boyfriend and I went for lunch on a date. The food came out promptly, and it was delicious. However, I suggest asking for a server who is not Beverly. She was inattentive and did not come to refill our drinks, another waitress came to do so even though it was not her station. Secondly... More

This has always been 'our restaurant' for almost thirty five years now. We miss the old wonderful lunch buffet from the old days. After owner changes we rarely visit any more. The setting is excellent and the decor is still very cool but the service and food have declined greatly over the years. We tried the steak and found it... More

Hydra is a very good steak house. The food is very good and the service and atmosphere is also. I have eaten here several times and never have been disappointed. If you are lucky enough to be in Sandpoint Idaho that is reward in itself and then if you make time to enjoy a great meal at Hydra that is... More

I have been to the Hydra several times over the past few years. Most recent was yesterday 11/2/14. I usually have the 8 oz baseball cut steak with baked potato and french green beans. If you order it rare that is what you will get. If medium is what you want it will be just that, nice pink inside but... More

I had the oysters. Big and mushy. Comes with a baked potato. Charged me extra 1.50 for sour cream and chives and didn't tell me it's extra. No meal comes with a salad..? Girlfriend's meat taste funny. They tested it and agreed. She didn't have to pay which was nice. For the price, I won't go back. Waitress should have... More

I was very pleasantly surprised. The place had been there for several decades. Good parking with access in the back. Loved the distribution and the way it's set up with many different levels and Little hideouts to sit. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was great. We had the ny strip. The salmon and a ribeye and everyone was happy.... More

We experienced this establishment over the last Labor Day. It was within walking distance from our hotel (La Quinta). It had been recommended to us prior to our arrival. This is a neat little restaurant tucked in off a side street. Nice atmosphere. We had a nice Wild Alaskan Salmon plate which we enjoyed. Our waiter was an Aussie who... More
