“A delicious experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

We discovered this restaurant when we were looking for lunch. The food is wonderful! My husband had sweet potato fries and they were great! We have taken friends for lunch since we went the first time and the food was wonderful then as well.

“Passing on the recommendation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

We got a recommendation for Scratch from a regular Coeur d'Alene visitor on the airplane while en route to a business meeting. We ended up eating there twice in three days, once with two people, once with six, and had only good experiences, with a variety of dishes (a fish special, a rack of lamb, crab-stuffed avacado, and a chowder, among others). Portions were good-sized, but not so big that they couldn't be finished. We'd pass on the recommendation.

“All made from scratch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

We were looking for a place for lunch on a Saturday and were referred to this place. Were told it was all made from scratch. We walked down from our room at the Flamingo and concerned because we were the only ones there at noon. I had the Club and my wife had the soup salad and sandwich. We were very pleased. All WAS from scratch and prepared perfectly. By the time we left it was starting to get busy but still not as much as it should as compared to other places cloce by..not sure why, service was good, not overpriced and good food

“Off the hook!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

First things first. The seafood chowder is a life changing experience. Whatever else you eat, start with the chowder. It's terrific. Our salads were great (all fresh fixings and a great light dressing). Entrees were generous (I ordered the lamb shanks and could only eat about half) and very flavorful. The wait staff was a lot of un to boot. The menu was varied with a number of good appetizers as well as a good selection of surf and turf plus some pasta dishes. Definitely worth a visit, that's for sure!

“Scratch this one off my list...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

A late night dinner on a patio in Coeur d'Alene was a great idea! We just picked the wrong restaurant. For us, the menu was a bit odd (rabbit is not my thing). We ended up ordering the Thai Chicken Pizza and the Ahi entree.
The pizza crust was awful. It was very much like bisquick and was crumbly and mushy. Not good. The tuna was nice, albeit a very small portion. A huge scoop of black rice and a few green beans did not make up for the tiny serving of fish.
The service was good and our server took the pizza off the bill, which I appreciated. This one was a fail. Not of epic proportions, but a fail nonetheless. Sorry Scratch.
