Evening on the River!

If we ever want a relaxing, yet refreshing dinner in Orofino we head to the Dining on the Edge. The atmosphere is "classy" and the setting is wonderful. Top that off with a most delightful dinner and Wham? What more could you ask for.

We stayed in the area for a weekend recently and we have visited one of our favorite restaurants, as usual they did a great job. The food was really good, Prime Rib was cooked perfectly. A Christmas tree was decorated and they took our picture in front of it. Nice to celebrate with good food and wine. Servers were nice... More

The setting for this establishment is worth the price of admission. The food is excellent and sometimes a bit eclectic. Service is moderately fast but not speedy. Lots of locals always in the dining room or the bar and a group of senior citizen ladies regularly play bridge there. The river is always a treat to watch in any season.

We had a party of 20 wildland firefighters eat dinner here. The service was fast and friendly. Food was great. The only negative thing was that they fixed the wrong steak for one of the guys and he didn't get his order until most of us were finished with our meals. There was no apology and no comp on his...

We ended up sitting in the bar for a while -- we didn't "over drink" but we sure enjoyed the food -- we had a couple of rounds of wonderful food. Great service, great food.

This is my favorite restaurant in the whole area. It is always my first choice when celebrating a special occasion. The food is always very good and the view of the Clearwater River is beautiful. I would describe the decor as "elegant rustic" with a casual atmosphere (nobody dresses up to go there). It is just a lovely, relaxing experience.
