We are blessed to be in this one-in-a-million location, perched on the south rim of The Canyon, in the great state of Idaho, 486 vertical feet above the beautiful Snake River. On a clear day you can see Soldier Mountain to the northwest, the Pioneer Range due north and Pomerelle to the east. What they say is true.. Location is everything!

Stopped here on our vacation. We had wonderful Service. The food was the best we had in all the restaurants we ate at. Our table had a wonderful look over the Canyon and we would look forward to going back next time we are in Twin Falls, ID.

I went there with a party of 4 for lunch, two relatives visiting from Arizona, my wife and I. I ordered the Fish and Chips, my wife ordered a Reuben Sandwich. I was really disappointed with my fish. It tasted and looked like the fish you get out of a box of Gortons frozen fish. Everyone had shoestring fries with... More

Elevation was recommended by the nearby hotel staff as a locally owned dining option. We were so glad to have had a fantastic dinner. The food was delicious, fresh and beautifully presented. The servers were friendly and attentive. But the crowning glory is the view of the canyon, what a terrific view! We will be back as soon as our... More

There is nothing on their menu that isn't really, really good. The atmosphere is awesome, wait staff and hostesses are fun and friendly and the view cannot be beat! Happy hour/bar menu prices are outstanding

This was the second time eating here and I think this time was better than the last. Service, food and view were wonderful. Only suggestion would be to offer more variety of wines by the glass but to tell you the truth, wines by the bottle were not too marked up. They take walk ins but a reservation can help... More

I try to go to 486 whenever I am in Twin Falls. Love the views of the canyon. The service is always great and the food is fabulous. After you can walk along the city's trail along the canyon to walk off your meal.

My family recently had dinner at Elevation 486 and it was simply amazing! We sat on the patio early in the evening with a breathtaking view overlooking the Snake River Canyon. It was chilly early on but, warmed up as the sun came around the buildings. Maria took care of us and was an absolute delight! We shared a bottle... More

Loved everything about this restaurant. We went on a busy Friday night and were very pleased with our food, service, and the unbeatable atmosphere. Every seat seemed to be a seat with a nice view of the canyon and bridge. They had some outside seating as well. Everything we ate was delicious. Would recommend this restaurant to any one visiting... More
