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!

Perfect for business

Best spot in Twin. We held a business dinner here and it was lovely. I've been back for lunch several times also. I've never been disappointed with my food choices. Chicken, steak, sandwiches are all wonderful and... the view!

Having a great dinner with the most astonishing view, that is what you get at Elevation 486. The ahi as appetizer was delicious, as well as the trout as an entree. The view over the canyon is unforgettable!!

Very unique setting with fantastic views. Very good food, but a little on the spendy side. Would recommend to others.

We found this by accident, after failing to find anywhere else to eat in the whole of Twin Falls! However, what a find! We were seated outside, and had a magnificent view of the valley, and the Perrine Bridge. The food was great as was the service.

You know this restaurant has something special about it when you see the number of people there a bit late on a Sunday night. The Kobe meatloaf was excellent - I'm not a huge fan of meatloaf, except my Mom's of course, but the "Kobe" aspect of it intrigued me. The view of the Perrine Bridge, the Snake River Canyon... More

When we arrived we asked for a table on the patio but they were anticipating rain so they were going to seat us inside. At the last moment, however, they accommodated us and we had our table on the patio. The evening turned out to be beautiful. We didn't think the food was exceptional but it was quite good. We...

If you're looking for a view, this is it. If you want good food for a reasonable price, stay away.The food was so-so for the high pricetag. I had seafood linguine and my friend had the salmon . We had a grilled artichoke to start. Unfortunately, the artichoke was the only highlight. We were ignored by waitstaff on a moderately... More

Good place to go for a special evening out. Eating on the patio with the view of the Snake River canyon is outstanding. Our food was good. Wife had the pork chops and I had a flat iron steak. Both were done very well. Did have some trouble with the bees wanting to buzz our food. Also, there was a... More
