Great view of river, outside seating. Great friendly service. Good food to boot! We had an open face crab and shrimp sandwich that was quite good. My wife had a chicken panini she enjoyed. The broccoli soup was good but too much.

Located along the river beside the Best Western in Orofino, ID. Slightly upscale but family friendly. Good service, good food and lovely views of the river. Outside tassles available

We were staying at the Best Western and this restaurant was right next door so we walked over. We had a wonderful experience. The food was awesome, our server was fabulous, and you can't beat the view.

A great surprise of fine dining experience in the small town of Orofino. The menu is much more than what a passing traveler would expect from a small town establishment! Great variety of selections, great service and the magnetic draw of the Clearwater River....!

Recently visited with a friend for lunch. And, per usual, the food was fantastic and the view of the Clearwater River from the outside dining area, superb! Had the shrimp and crab open-faced sandwich (which I usually have) and my friend had the daily special...a type of pepper-steak sandwich. Both came with either soup or salad. Prices are excellent, and... More

We went for a late lunch, and we were the only ones in the restaurant. Beautiful view of the river. Located at the far end of the parking lot from the Best Western Motel. We were going to try to eat there another time, but they are closed on Sundays. The Edge could seat over 100 people. Employees were very... More

This is next to the motel but different owners. Wonderful selection and food. Great chef and service. Patio next to the river for dining but a little chilly when we there.
