My wife and I enjoyed trout and sturgeon for dinner. Both the food and the views were great! What we did not read about in TripAdvisor, however, was the beautiful after-dinner walk along the canyon rim. If you walk from the restaurant in the direction of the canyon bridge, you can view the falls from both sides!

My husband and I went to this restaurant during its happy hour (runs from 3-6 pm). We had a couple of draft beers ($4 for a pint) and a couple of bar snacks - stuffed mushrooms and smoked trout with brie and grapes. The food was excellent, happy hour prices were very reasonable, service was excellent. We sat outside, and... More

Went to Elevation 486 with some friends for drinks. Good sized bar with little to no wait to get seats for 1-4 persons. Great selection of micro-brews, prices are reasonable with a great view of the canyon from pretty much any seat in the house! Highly recommend checking it out for drinks with friends or a nice dinner.

lives up to reputation -probably the best in Twin Falls. Food is OK, and views are tremendous from the patio, especially at sundown. Trout and baked potato were super, NY strip was so-so.

Best food I've had in a long time ! Perfectly cooked, tender and flavorful. Restaurant sits over looking the canyons and a golf course. Beautiful place for a romantic outdoor dinner !

Our group of three recently stopped by "Elevation 486" for lunch. We were seated immediately at a table by the window overlooking the canyon and the golf course. Our server was very prompt,attentive, and personable. The food was delicious and the Chardonnay was good. Would definitely return when in Twin Falls.

We were driving from Salt Lake City to Sun Valley and thanks to T A we found this stunning restaurant overlooking a dramatic gorge. The restaurant food and staff were superb. It was a great start to our North American holiday. Highly recommended Thank you Randolph and Catherine and family

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!
