The Sandpiper is a long standing traditional steakhouse in Idaho Falls. It's got a nice ambience on the river. I ordered the halibut on a visit last year and it was dry. I decided to order it again, thinking that wouldn't happen twice. It did. My guests said the trout and the pasta was ok. Nothing to rave about.

Situated along the Snake river the outside dining is wonderful. The menu is average to very good and the wine list adequate. The prices are quite reasonable so all in all I would go again for the Patio.

Good selection to choose from. Always take out of town clients here for dinner. Steaks are great especially with a baked potatoes with the works. Salad is fresh. Fisk looks good. Outdoor patio is always nice even it is a little chilly. Just ask them to flip the heater on.

Outside seating area was wonderful with view of river. Food was well prepared. Two in our party got salmon and trout. All enjoyed it very much. Server was good but a bit dry.

The bar menu has very good food at reasonable prices and they have several beers on tap (Monday has a $1 discount on draft Beers). My wife ordered the wings and I had... More

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.

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.
