Greeat stopping off spot on the way from Canada to Spokane or beyond. The service was excellent and the location great. Try the hamburgers as they are to die for. All in all a great food experience.

Our group of three decided to sit out on the patio with a view of the river. The staff was attentive and the food wonderful.We were treated to an amazing series of geese flying home to roost! As the sun set, the evening sky was filled with the the "v" shape formations. Since the view was fantastic, my husband even ordered one of the speciality brews, huckleberry wheat. I can recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling in and around Bonner's Ferry, ID. Enjoy!

Three of us spent an afternoon visiting three northern Idaho breweries. We had a good time at the Kootenai River Brewery. Lots of windows with a view of the river. Good beer, nice bar, friendly bartender. She talked us into trying the beer cheese soup, which was very tasty. We'd recommend the Kootenai River Brewery for a good time.

Pretty good food and good beer. I've had their Kootenai River Brewing Company hamburger with blue cheese a couple of times and it was excellent both times. Their fries are very good. Fish and chips are quite good. My husband had their salmon caesar salad and thought it was good. Service has been spotty. Sometimes they are right there to take your order and others you sit and wait even though they are not overly busy. Still nice to have options in Bonners.

The menu at this great little spot is eclectic serving such items as pulled pork, (they have a wood fired smoker outside so it's really smoked), seafood, burgers, wraps, hot wings, and much more. With that diversified menu you wouldn't think they could get them all done right but they do. I had the Black & Tan fish and chips last night and it was the best I've had anywhere. I've also had the turkey wrap, fish tacos, hot wings, and the blue cheese burger. All top notch. They have a limited number of micro beers brewed on site but they do it right. The huckleberry pale ale is a five star. Priced moderately and worth every cent.
