Weenjoyed our lunch outside on the deck overlooking the Snake River and a picturesque golf course. The service was first class and the food was excellent. I consider myself an expert on steamed clams. These were the best I ever had and the halibut fish and chips were prepared to perfection.

Not to be missed arts center and patio location over the snake river canyon makes this restaurant a must. Ability to sit on the patio in warm weather is ideal. Sorry, but my Thai chicken wings were dried out and the sauce an afterthought..too sweet. Hubby's. burger was quite overcooked. Things may have been different had we arrived before 3... More

We enjoyed a very tasty lunch on the patio at Elevation 486 over the weekend. The food and services was very good and the view of the canyon is magnificent. It's worth a visit if you are in Twin Falls.

Stopped in for lunch around 1:00 on a Tuesday. Lot's of open setting on the patio which has a breathtaking view of the Snake River. I had the Rueben, wife had the Apple Smoked Ham, Bacon and Brie, and my aunt had the Catfish Wrap...all were excellent! The wait staff was friendly and efficient. We had a great time :)

I went into this dinner meeting with pretty low expectations about how the meal was going to be. My dinner guests had chosen the location and I'd never heard of it; however, they were locals and I deferred to their suggestion. What a great surprise! The service was outstanding and the food was very good. Our server was very upbeat,... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by the manager at the Hampton Inn where we stayed that night. They had an excellent menu, very well priced and the location/view was exceptional. I had the pork chop and I thought it was great. The service was excellent as well. I would have gone back there another time if we were going... More

Wow what a view this place has! Glad we found it on Trip Advisor. Whether you eat indoors or out, the restaurant borders a nice paved walking trail that shows off the Snake River. We had a nice sunset stroll after dinner to take in this view. Oh yes and back to the food. Elevation has a large menu of... More

My friend and I were doing a road trip in Idaho for our June/July birthdays and choose to celebrate at Elevation 486. We arrived for happy hour and were stunned by the drop dead gorgeous views from the bar. Even though it was a very warm night, we enjoyed sitting on the shaded patio for dinner. We both ordered the... More

We are blessed to be in this one-in-a-million location, perched on the south rim of The Canyon, in the great state of Idaho, 486 vertical feet above the beautiful Snake River. On a clear day you can see Soldier Mountain to the northwest, the Pioneer Range due north and Pomerelle to the east. What they say is true.. Location is everything!
