The view is amazing, right on the lake and the wall is glass. We tried four or five appetizers, two entrees, and two desserts. All were absolutely delicious. Some dishes were very unusual and creative like a dessert that was rolled in a crepe with tapioca, strawberry, mango with a strawberry/ginger dipping sauce. The presentation was excellent and more importantly... More

Enjoyed the romantic mood with lights dimmed and candles lit. Our waiter was attentive but not annoying. I had the Grouper with lobster sauce $35? (ok), tamale (good), swiss chard (awesome). Added a side of sliced potatoes with onions $6 (amazing). My husband started with raw oysters $20 and loved them, especially the small ones. They were sweet and super... More

We were in McCall for the long MLK weekend. We went to Shore Lodge to check out the newly remodeled rooms. We are booked for a week in March. We had no intentions of staying for dinner, but so pleased that we did! Justice, the hostess was a pleasure and always had a smile on her face. She let us... More

My wife and I had dinner here with friends and have been here several times before. The view of Payette Lake is one of the best anywhere in the world. The food at the Narrows overall is very good, but pricey. The menu has a wide variety of choices from starters such as wild mushroom broth with lobster dumplings and... More

My wife and I had dinner with another couple at Narrows.The Payette Lake setting and views cannot be beat, so would the food be equally as good? This is a top dollar menu, so our expectations were set high. The service was very good and attentive without being intrusive. Salads were good and showed some creativity. 3 of us had... More

While in McCall for a wedding, we stopped in at the Shore Lodge just to see the facility. We noticed that the bar was quite lively with a full house watching a Boise State football game. Fortunately a table opened up and we eventually spent the rest of the evening there. The small plates (not really that small) were all... More

We had a superb table for four overlooking the Lake when we took our American friends for a thank you dinner in September 2013. The menu choice was excellent including vegetarian options, not common in the US! The food prepared by the Chef Steve Topple was wonderfully presented and more importantly was delicious. The service was discreet without any pushy... More

My wife and I ate here to celebrate our anniversary, and I can honestly say it was the best meal I've ever eaten. Everything we ordered was delicious, the staff was great, and the view of the lake from our table was amazing. Highly recommended.

I must confess up front to having been in the travel and hospitality industry for a good while, so I am used to eating really good food. Imagine my surprise when I ended up having the best meal of my life here in McCall! The chef at the time (this was last year) started us off with sautéed seasonal morels... More

We love this place! The view of the lake is to die for, the inside atmosphere is sophisticated and lovely, and the food is generally very good. Pricey, but you have to pay some for a beautiful setting. The waitstaff is friendly and helpful. Don't miss this place on your visit to McCall.
