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!

Elevation 486 - Always good!

Third time into Elevation 486, this time went into the bar for happy hour - had a couple of items off the menu which were very good and my wife had a great martini and I had a good micro beer on draft.

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

After a long day on the road, my daughter and I checked into the Fairfield Inn and Suites and asked the desk attendant if he could recommend a good restaurant. We were pointed to Elevation 486 as the best place in Twin Falls. I was a little hesitant as we certainly were not dressed for an upscale restaurant, but was... More

Elevation 486, which I believe is the height of the bridge to the snake river, has the best view in town. The patio and the the restaurant bar run the length of the building so you have a great view from any seat.

I see this place has a ton of potential. I personal had the Kobe meat loaf. I didn't quite finish the meal. Enjoying what I did eat but it just lacked the traditional taste of a home made dish. Coworker had the ribs and loved those.

We had one night in Twin Falls and we wanted to make the most of it... The Blue Lakes Inn staff recommended Elevation 486 because the food was good and it overlooks the canyon that the Snake River runs through. Perfection! The view was incredible and the food excellent. In addition, our server was very gracious about fulfilling my not-on-the-menu... More

What a blast we had at lunch today! Pam made our time here so fun and she was knowledgeable and helpful. The food was delicious and eating on the porch made our time here top notch. This is where we will eat when visiting Twin Falls again. It's #1 for a good reason. Pam makes it even better!

The food is tasty. The view is fantastic! We ordered seafood and it is very fresh. We especially like their salad and they way the vegetable is prepared. High quality. Service is also very good.

This restaurant is is on the edge of the Snake River Canyon and overlooks the Perrine Bridge, both spectacular sights. The menu was eclectic and delicious. We ate in the bar because it has the best view, so it was a little noisy. There is outside seating, but the weather was not conducive to eating al fresco.
