We met some friends for dinner at Sandpiper Restaurant in Idaho Falls, ID. They had eaten there many times and raved, we were not disappointed. The patio next to the canal and the Snake River was casual and very comfortable, as well as, scenic. We were very lucky that the August evening weather was absolutely perfect! The service was very...

I was around when this restaurant opened nearly a half century ago. The Sandpiper was an instant hit, combining great cuisine with Hemingway charm. Great care was taken in both taste and presentation, from Snake River trout and island scampi, to fresh Idaho Angus beef, including a selection of regional and international wines not readily available even to connoisseurs. Today,... More

So I don't always want the same thing and that's what I love about the sandpiper. If you want stake with fettuccine that's what they bring you. I have made many modifications to the menu and have never been told no. They have a great outdoor area. My wife and I really like to go here and that can be... More

We love going to the Sandpiper whether just for appetizers or a meal. My favorite is the house salad with shrimp and cashews and yummy dressing. Their steak and chicken are always good. In the summer we like sitting out on the patio that overlooks the Snake River...wonderful view and atmosphere.

Sandpiper has the best halibut anywhere. Their Macadamia Crunch Halibut is to die for -- crusted with macadamia nuts. I also appreciate that they will add anchovies or shrimp to their caesar salad. Great steaks, great baked Idaho potatoes. Super desserts. Fun to dine on the patio overlooking the Riverwalk.

We love the Sandpiper. The Hawaiian Crusted Halibut is the best and the filet's are great too. My wife loves the raspberry chicken salad for something light. Always get the house side salad with the cashews and shrimp. We are always looking for an excuse to go back.

We had to come to Idaho Falls for a funeral and saw good reviews on this restaurant from TripAdvisor, and they were right. Was surprised that we didn't have a wait to get in, which was good, but our dinners were excellent. My Aunt had the Salmon with a lemon sauce, I had never seen a piece of salmon served... More

We arrived a little after 7:00 p.m on a Thursday and had trouble finding a place to park. When we got inside, we figured we would have a long wait but the restaurant is huge with an equally large outside dining area along the Snake River (actually the irrigation channel). Our waiter was attentive and was able to answer most... More
