Back Country Bistro adds even more to the beauty of Stanley. What an amazing place to find amazing food and beer. I will always return when in Stanley.

I always order the Chilean sea bass if it is on menu in many restaurants I've visited all over the country. This was the best. It was neither over or undercooked and seasoned to perfection. I'll be back again for it on my visit next year, so please don't change a thing !

I invited close friends and a business associate from New York to dinner at the Back Country Bistro recently. Having eaten there before, I knew the prices were very reasonable for outstanding food and presentation. As a sales rep. for a composite shower mfg. here in Idaho, my job is to form long standing relationships with our customers in the... More

The food and service was excellent and to find a meal in the tiny town of Stanley Idaho was an unexpected treat. I had the Lobster Tail and found it to have been as good as any i have ahd across the country.

I lived in and around the Sawtooth Valley and Wood River Valley for many years and have never experienced something like this. The atmosphere is very intimate and unique with live music and an amazing view. The service and staff were above and beyond, very personal, friendly, and prompt! As far as the food goes... I've never tasted anything like... More

We had the good fortune to hear about the Back Country Bistro while staying in Stanley recently. Part way through dinner the first night, we snagged our host to ensure a reservation for our second night. The atmosphere was quiet, with relaxed live acoustic guitar music in the background. The service was as prompt and courteous as any restaurant I've... More

Best place to eat while in Stanley and if you miss out and don't eat here, it's your own fault!! Excellent presentation of food and atmosphere is relaxing. If the antelope is on the menu, I highly recommend it!

They are not open every night, so call ahead. Sun Valley quality cuisine in Stanley, white table clothes, attentive refined service. Menu is all 4 course dinners, no a la carte. Choices are varied and seasonal, all attractively prepared. The wine list is small but well selected. Four of us were all well pleased, and surprised to find such a... More

Melinda and Shane (the chef), owners, have perfected a high-class, small venue, restaurant, that you can experience in a wilderness location - Stanley, Idaho. We loved it enough to go both nights we were there. The Antelope is amazing, as is the Chilean Bass or Steak (all that we tried). Literally everyone in the restaurant with us was raving about...
