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!

Worth the scenery alone

The view of the canyon was amazing, and worth the visit alone. We dined at lunch time, and I found the prices and offerings incredibly affordable and delicious. Dinner had a finer selection and raised prices to match, but worth it, I'm sure. It was recommended to me by my sister, and I'm glad I... read more

We were seated outside for lunch, the view was truly breathtaking. I had the Thai Steak Salad and it was very good. Cheesecake of the day was mocha. My granddaughter said her burger was the best she has ever had, meaning the kids meal was also of high quality. Frequently restaurants serve junk for kids menu items, not the case... More

We were a party of 12 and we were looked after very efficiently. The food was delicious and reasonable. Good selection of wines. Best part was the view of the Snake River canyon. Large restaurant, lots of staff. Also looked like it had good outdoor seating.

The food and drink at 486 was good, nothing exceptional, but I'm sure one of the better meals in town. Staff was friendly enough, not super fast, so expect a leisurely dinner. But the atmosphere was exceptional.bi can't remember the last time I had a meal with something so incredible to look at. If you are visiting Twin Falls, don't... More

The outdoor seating provides an excellent view of Snake River. The lunch menu has something for everyone. Service is good. The beer is cold. Indoor dining is very nice as well. Dinner menu has much more to offer. The local folks in the RV Park say it is the best place in Twin Falls.

I went here on a business meeting with excellent weather and in the summer. Ate out on the patio with almost unbelievable view from heaven. The local craft beers on tap we excellent. The menu included fresh daily choices and regular menu choices. I sampled both and they were fantastic for pub food. The only drawback was desert. The chocolate... More

Thank you for your kind review. One thing that stood out to us is your comment about our desserts. All of our desserts are made from scratch, in house, except for our ice cream. Once in a while our refrigerators are too cold and things may freeze. We are terribly sorry your dessert was frozen. We would sure love to... More

This is a great view restaurant overlooking the rugged Snake River gorge, with delicious food at very reasonable prices. Also, very friendly service. It's the best place for dinner after shopping or appointments.
