We stopped for lunch and had some of the best burgers ever. Nothing fancy but good, basic food and plenty of it. Rustic location in the beautiful Sawtooth Mountain town of Stanley.

We ate outside both times. Very clean. Servers very friendly. Discovered Huckleberry cider. Very refreshing. Hubby had a burger both times and loved it. I had the Big Bird sandwich. So good. An amazing sandwich; very flavorful. Not your usual turkey sandwich. The next time...since I wanted something a little lighter so I had the Mixed Berry Salad which was very fresh. The apple pie was good. Wonderful atmosphere. Large outdoor eating area which was wonderful at the end of the day to relax and have a great meal. We would definitely return. So glad we ate here twice.More

Great friendly and quick service! The food was delicious -- especially the curry hummus with naan bread and tomato bisque! The apple pie was delicious too! Their outdoor seating was dog-friendly. Highly recommend!

Reasonable food. Service by the lady server. She was rude. I could not believe the things she said. We were with a group of friends and i asked if i could get served first because i had to do things. She said I don’t like...your attitude dude and i dont work for you. She was rude to her guest. She should learn to appreciate and respect her guest a bit. Its not recommended to go here. Enough good friendly places to goMore

Stopped here for drinks and appetizers after a hike with my husband. Our server, Mario, was fantastic as was the food and drinks. We sat outside and enjoyed the summer mountain breeze and enjoyed the laid back vibe of Luce’s. This was a great find...in Stanley and if we had had more time we have returned. The baked goat cheese was delicious. Mario took time to answer our questions about the menu, chat with us about the town, and offered up dining suggestions for our next stop in Boise. Also, love that dogs are welcome at their outdoor tables!More

We stopped in after a long day on the road. My husband is disabled we had our service dog there were three other tables outside with dogs when we arrived. Then we hear the waitress say that there's going to be 20 people coming and...other people started showing up which is no big deal. However we had already been sitting outside in 90° weather without as much as a glass of water for 25 minutes. So when I heard there was going to be 20 people coming I went in to order our food to go it cost me $5 more not a problem. But the young girl that was sitting at the counter finishing her meal I'm not sure if she worked there but she had something real snide to say to me about mentioning how long we should wait. She stated there's 40,000 tourists that come through there each year. I have no idea what that has to do with me and my husband!. After 30 minutes we finally got our water and then shortly after our food came. All in all $35 for two hamburgers and one hour and 15 minutes later. The young girl that helped us was a real sweetheart and really worked very hard. The two older ladies seemed very lost. By the time we left there were eight dogs most of them barking and fighting with each other and 30 people total arrived as we were waiting for our Burgers to be cooked. This could be a very nice place if it was run more smoothly. Being short-staffed is not an excuse there was plenty of staff just no management. Kudos to the young girl with the scarf on her head today Monday...More

This has to be arguably the best place in Stanley to get a burger & fries meal that's delicious and offers one of the more affordable options for the area. The quarter pound Angus burger is amazing and full of great flavor. Even after we...ate it, are mouth was salivating for more. We will be coming back here whenever we are in the area and are craving a good burger. The customer service was also really great. Everyone was so friendly and helpful with any request. Kind and took time to speak with you. The place has a great local feel to it. Our one complaint is that they were very skimpy on the fries. We would have loved to have more, they definitely gave less fries with their meal than any place we have been at in this area. Would make for a perfect meal if that one thing was adjusted! Other than that, its a great place to eat and would highly recommend it.More

Delicious! We ate here all three nights we were in town. We tried the burger, turkey sandwich, hummus plate and my favorite (I had it two nights in a row), the curry. And the beer selection was pretty decent as well. The staff was very...friendly and helpful.More

Typical burger and fries. We were not greeted warmly. Looking at the demographic of customers, our family of 4 stood out, especially after spending the day hiking. Our server was friendly enough. I suggest eating in Idaho City.

Good food, nice deck and patio for outdoor eating. Service was friendly, if a bit overwhelmed by the crowds.

Awesome outdoor patio that is very dog friendly. A lot of tables and shade! Great fast service and food! We had the chicken sandwich, turkey sandwich (substituted with Swiss cheese) and fries. Their shoestring fries were very tasty. Not soggy or too oily. Crispy and...just the right amount of sauce. And, you get a huge amount of fries too! Fry sauce was great. Side salad was huge with many types of fresh lettuce. We wanted to try the cheesecake but we were too full. As soon as we brought our dog onto the patio and sat down a waiter quickly noticed we were there and brought us a menu. Our waitress was very attentive, caring and nice to our dog. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Stanley. We highly recommend stopping here!More
