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!

Visited on a Saturday night in early January. We asked for a seat at the window which we were happily given. All the staff were very pleasant. We shared the bruschetta to start,, then we had half a rack of ribs & a flatiron steak & we finished with the brownie & gnache. All of it was very tasty, nicely... More

I spend a lot of time in TF on business. Sometimes staying several days. There really is nothing better at the end of a hard day than to have a drink, a meal, and a nice view of the canyon while the sun sets. Very nice waitstaff, very good food, and a large selection of fine spirits. I highly recommend... More

Gorgeous surroundings where every seat (except for the bartenders bar) is great, with centered fireplace, awesome staff and wonderful lunchtime prime rib sandwich, crisp salad and a good bloody Mary. Priced very well. Will be a regular stop when passing through. Amazing area to explore for that matter!

The restaurant was recommended by a hotel I stayed at after a very long day of driving. I would love to see it in the daytime because the location is fairly spectacular. I was seated promptly, right by a window, and all the servers were very attentive and nice. I overheard a server at another table and she was certainly... More

Ambiance was excellent. Food was all pretty good. (The ahi was poor and had far too much pepper, being the exception.) The service was fair, not great. I lost count of how many times I saw empty glasses at our table. We'd go back.

Great food, beautiful scenery--well worth the time to try it out. We sat out in the deck. Quite comfortable and pleasant. Highly recommend this place--especially if you want a quiet, peaceful, scenic place to eat. Loved it!!!

Don’t believe the reviews. They’re misleading. I ate here on 12-17 and there are some good things about the restaurant I want to point out. The ambiance is nice, the beer is cold and the bartenders are friendly and attentive. It really stops there though. I ordered the prime rib with mashed potatoes and clam chowder. The bread they brought... More

I came in on a week night, after a long day of sales calla and driving. I love the location, over looking the Snake River on an overlook---nice. I came in and had a short wait for a table despite many empty tables. Very busy dining room, and tables are way to close, no privacy. I ordered a hanger steak... More
