We decided to cross the Long Bridge from Sandpoint to try Forty One South, based on good reviews. Being the top restaurant in Sagle doesn't mean much, but... The atmosphere is cabin by the lake. We were there in winter, but I'm sure the view is great in summer! Unfortunately, the fireplace (nice touch) was smoking up the dining room... More

This place is is magical. The food awesome, fabulous views, bring your swimsuit. The surface lake temp averages 76 degrees. We actually live down the road. If you like Sushi, they have that too.

Very nice restaurant with great ambiance and spectacular views. Great food and drinks!! We love the fireplaces. The staff is great and very helpful. The first time we went was for their Thanksgiving buffet and it was awesome! We also enjoyed their burnt brown sugar lemon drop drinks. Our second visit was for dinner on New Year's Day evening. Again... More

Love the setting overlooking the RIver/Lake near the long bridge it is hard to beat for location. The lodge rustic setting with large fireplaces, and authentic Idaho architecture makes it a nice place for a quiet dinner or larger groups. I like the selections of salads, pastas, seafood and meats. I have tried the Salmon, Trout, chicken, and pasta dishes... More

Celebrated my mother's 8th birthday at this restaurant. They had just replaced the tables and chairs and the replacements are definitely an improvement. The food was good and priced reasonably but the ribs, which three of us ordered was way over cooked. The meat completely fell off the bones and the ends were tough. It seemed that the ribs were...

Always love going to Forty One South. Love the food (they have a goat cheese appetizer to die for!!) and what's better that getting to eat while looking out at Lake Pend Oreille. Um nothing ;-)

From the appetizers to the main course; everything was absolutely wonderful. Cassandra and her staff were efficient , friendly, and professional.

The food is adequate, but does not justify the outrageous prices... I guess the prices wouldn't be bad if the food was exceptional but it's not... I guess if you don't mind getting gouged on prices it's a nice place to go the summer because the outside dining on the lake and it's also accessible by boat

We drove 45 miles north to Sandpoint to celebrate our 29th. Service is good but sometimes servers are hovering to take away the plate the second you put down the fork. Prices seemed high but this is a fairly rural area of Idaho. Ambiance is excellent and so is the view if there when it is still light out. Wine... More
