Description: The Cedars Floating Restaurant is Idaho's premier floating restaurant, featuring the freshest fish available daily and Midwest and locally sourced Choice Beef. The Cedars, founded in 1965, floats at the confluence of Lake Coeur d'Alene and the Spokane River and is renown for providing quality food and service. Recently installed is an 18 foot salad bar, stocked with the freshest vegetables, fruits and variety of items to make a fabulous experience at the Salad Bar. Buoyed by 600,000 pounds of concrete encased styrofoam, The Cedars is the perfect setting to take in breathtaking views of Lake Coeur d'Alene and Northwest delicacies such as Cedar Plank Salmon and a Biergarten Filet. With one of the Northwest's finest wine selection and a full service bar, The Cedars is just waiting to quench your thirst as you pull your boat up to one of our spacious docks. The Cedars hosts holiday parties, meetings, and special events.

It is a floating restaurant so the views are spectacular! Grab a table outside and enjoy the great meal. We had plank salmon and it was wonderful. Staff was attentive and friendly.

“Excellent view, food, and historic atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

Floating on beautiful Coeur D' Alene Lake, the view is breathtaking! A very expensive venture not to be rushed but savored. Not for anyone in a hurry, but a must see for visitors to the area. Make reservations for convenient seating.

“Amazing location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

I have been going to the Cedars for many years. A few years ago it was bought out and updated.
While is is not quite as rustic they have done a great job. More importantly that lake view is worth it.
Food was really really great.. Two of my members of the party at the prime rib - one an officiando- said it was the best he had ever had! The Basil Blitz was a terrific martini. The salad bar ( I know sounds mundane) is WONDERFUL. Fresh appealing and great selection. If you are in Couer d'Alene, don't miss it.

“Tasty but loud”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

We made reservations at this busy restaurant a couple days prior. It was very busy at 5:45( earlier time than we would have liked). The staff was good as was the salad bar and dinner. The seafood based menu was varied. I had the seafood papparadelle. It was very good with the scallops and shrimp cooked perfectly. The chocolate lava cake was the best I've ever had. The only down side was that it was very loud in the restaurant so don't go if you want to talk much. You can feel the movement of the floating restaurant. I wonder how that would be in bad weather.

“Best food in awhile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Very good salad bar and great chowder.

Cheese biscuits were tasty and seasoned walnuts were great.

Prime rib prepared perfectly and vegetables were likewise perfect.

Italian seafood was good but shrimp a little overcooked.


Very good halibut but likewise slightly overcooked.

Nice meal and good ambience.
