You can sit outside and dine. There was a crowd there, but we got a seat outside after we pointed out to the server that no one was sitting at a table outside and it hadn't been cleared. All we had was soup ad salad, anti was good. Go early if you want to get seated, inside is kind of... More

I was staying at the Coeur d'Alene resort for a conference and the hotel recommended this restaurant for breakfast. It was only 4-5 blocks from the resort. It is a small restaurant, but cozy. We sat outside on the patio. They had a very nice selection on the menu for breakfast and the food was fantastic! I had a wonderful... More

Not sure if this is new ownership / chef / whatever, but the establishment at 501 Sherman has a new name, but the old web site. Four of us enjoyed a great dinner, but slow service - luckily we liked our beers while we waited. The mushroom risotto was excellent; half of it filled me up and I had a... More

And, it's even better food! We were there on Wednesday when their bottled wines are 50% off. Food was very fresh. We are going back soon.

We went here for dinner for our family of four. The food was enjoyable, and the atmosphere was cozy (we sat by a gas fireplace, which was nice). The beer and wine-by-the glass were good accompaniments for the food. They didn't have their beer list on a menu, so the waitress led me through a labyrinth to the tap room... More

Went here last night - nice live entertainment playing in the background. Peppy atmosphere. Service was really good and food was done very well. We would go again

I asked Art at the Flamingo Motel where a nice place with good food was and he recommended Scratch. They make everything from scratch for each meal and it was to die for. A must go restaurant.

This is a place we have walked by, driven, by and never gave it a try. today was lazy day, and we decided it was time to try a new place. ( New to us anyway.) the place looks really great, is spotlessly clean, and for some unknown reason was empty at around noon on a pretty, sunny North Idaho... More

Waited on hand and foot. Nice atmosphere, not loud and noisy. Right downtown on Sherman avenue, convent location.
