I ate here twice during my stay. Both meals were exceptionally good. The menu had enough variety to please all tastes. Both meals were enough for 2 people. Service was great. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The cuisine is very good and quite a surprise in such a small town. The beef dishes are outstanding and the fish and seafood are excellent. The watermelon radishes on the salads are colorful and delicious and the fishing decor adds to the peacefulness of the experience.

We stayed at the Best Western next door and and were very glad that we took the short walk across the parking lotto "Dining on the Edge". My wife had the Crab Stuffed Prawns and I enjoyed a steak entre (flank steak I believe) that was tasty. I had a house cabernet that went well with the meal. The view... More

Who knew we could find such good food in the middle of a canyon? Great menu, craft beers (for dark lovers, try the Irish Death), and a view to die for... The wait staff were very friendly (thanks Mayze!).

good sized kids meals, even about the size of dad's burger. good local beers. we came when it wasn't busy and got a prime river seat. I imagine when this place is busy the service could be slow since it was slow and we were only one of 3 tables occupied on a weekend night. If staying at the best... More

My husband said the fire grilled salmon filet sandwich was the best he ever had.The restaurant is pretty fancy for a small community. Very nice.

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.

Just left the Edge--excellent lunch. The Salmon salad was amazing -- huge chunk of salmon on a bed of spinach greens surrounded by blue cheese chunks, mandarin oranges and cranberries topped with a raspberry vinegarette. The chicken panini and french dip were great-- the salads were topped with a watermelon radish slice-- visually appealing. The shrimp scampi was ok. The... More
