I love their roast. Mostly I eat the salad bar. I'm not much of a pie person but it's pretty good. We go there about 4 times a year

This is a Great Restaurant in Brigham City. And it is historical -- Original copper ceiling, wooden booths and artifacts from the past. The food is great --- freshly prepared, made on site. Idle Isle is famous for its pot roast, it's pasta and don't miss the ice cream bar for an after dinner treat.

I ordered a Philly Steak sandwich and asked about substituting banana peppers. The sweet waitress pulled peppers out of the salad bar and took them to the kitchen. It was the best steak sandwich I've had outside Philly.

A local cafe that has comfort food. The service is good, the food is fine, and you get large servings. It's not a place I would go out of my way for, but if you are in the area, it's certainly an option. There is plenty of parking in the back.

This is a nice small town cafe, with good food. Our waitress was very accommodating and keep the drinks full. The food was good, but nothing stood out as excellent. With that said I will definitely be returning for the atmosphere and service.

Open faced turkey or roast beef sandwiches,pot roast,stew - and much more will tickle your taste buds at this beautifully maintained vintage restaurant. They have original booths and tables and a vintage cash register at the homemade candy counter.

The food is very good down home cooking. The pot roast is great has never been re-decorated right down to the old marble soda fountain. The service is very good and the manager is always there to make you feel welcome.

Very pleased with the exceptional service! We visit Idle Isle usually every other week and have been pleased with our service each time. The staff is friendly and the food is tasty. The rolls and jam are a MUST!
