Hi Flare-n-me - I'm sorry that you didn't truly like your experience yesterday. We are aware that our ordering system is quite unique, but due to the size of the restaurant it is what is most efficient. It is a different type of experience, and...More

We go to Spuds on our annual trip to Sandpoint and it never disappoints! Great sandwiches and salads. This year we had our dog and sat on the front patio. Not as lovely as the lake-side but still nice.

We stopped in here for a drink and to kill time. Not that big of a selection of drink options compared to other restaurants in the area. But the view from the deck was amazing.

Description
If Spud's is one thing, it's fresh. Fresh in the sense that we make everything from scratch, from every dressing, sauce and chutney, to elaborate soups and outstanding desserts. Spud's is also fresh in the sense in that our classic menu is continually reinspired by worldly flavors, regional style and seasonal ingredients. We adore the sophisticated touch of the West's best restaurants, and honor the casual comforts of small town North Idaho. Located in picturesque downtown Sandpoint, Idaho, Spud's Waterfront's reputation extends beyond the shores of Lake Pend Oreille as an excellent restaurant for locals and travelers alike. Dock your boat on the boardwalk, bike up from the beach, pull in on your way to the mountain, walk in before catching a show at the Panida.
