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!

Best restaurant in Twin Falls

As a California native and someone who lives in wine country, I find it very difficult to find food of a high quality that I am used to when I visit my parents. This spot is THE best restaurant in Twin Falls, ID.

The food was excellent, the menu interesting, the atmosphere a little pretentious, but overall a great experience. I suggest getting there early or get a reservation. We got there early, before 5, and when we left, there was a line. We were seated at a table next to the window with a great view of the snake river canyon. I... More

We ate here two different nights. OMG! The ruby trout, pork, and quail are to die for! The service is excellent! If you stay at the Fairfield Inn and Suites they have discount coupons for this restaurant. You HAVE to eat here!

We arrived for an early Valentine's weekend (Friday 5:30pm) dinner. We were told that we were very lucky to get seated (although we had reservations and the restaurant side of the place was 2 people short of empty). Our service was good, waiter very attentive.... yet, the food was just OK, even mediocre. Half way through the meal, the restaurant... More

I loved being able to see the view and be comfortable inside. I love that they have the option to sit outside with good weather. The staff were all very attentive and the food was great.

Went in with my wife for dinner on a Saturday night. We got seated next to a cozy fireplace. It was just starting to get dark so we still got a glimpse of the Snake River and the beautiful canyon. I ordered the Flank that was featured as a special with wild rice pilaf and a house salad. Every bite... More

Any time of the year the view of the canyon and bridge is fantastic. Outdoor seating is available in warmer weather. The bar is very cozy. I recommend the quail. Attached to the restaurant is the art center. You may look at art exhibits in the hall and exhibition room if it is open.

Wanting something different from the typical freeway exit fare, thanks to TripAdvisor, we found this great restaurant. I was glad we called ahead for reservations. There aren't a lot of options on a Sunday evening, so the place was packed. As our very cheerful host immediately led us to our table, we passed a frustrated waitress who said something to... More
