Great French Dip!

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

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

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.

My dad had to go into the hospital recently for a short procedure and my step-mom was with us and rightfully nervous about the whole thing. We decided it would be a good plan to take her out of the hospital down into Coeur d'Alene for lunch to get her mind off of things. My husband and I hadn't been... More

We ordered off the Happy Hour Menu but had to ask for it. Scampi dish and calamari were both good as was the salad. Nice wine selection. The 5 children at the table next to us were very noisy and somewhat ruined our meal.

We stopped in after a recommendation from our inn keeper. The chicken wrap and pork tacos were both very good. We enjoyed the corner window table so we could people-watch the sidewalk activity. Nice range of menu choices. Service was great.
