If you want a rare treat, visit the Hope Idaho area and experience a floating dining experience with very good food. The restaurant is built on a plan similar to a Marina and offers lake side dining more that just sitting near the lake on land. You are really on the lake!

Service is superb and the food is very very good. Anything on the menu is going to be a add to your dining experience!

Took my other half there for his B-day. It had been years since I was there. (was good back then) They have a great menu to choose from & what we had was very tasty. We sat outside, our waitress(s) were all very nice & even though it's a little fancy they make you feel like your having supper in their home :) It's nice to see that everyone helps each other & they brought him a piece of cheesescake w/huckleberry topping & a candle. And the sunsets in Northern Idaho are AMAZING, so was a perfect ending to a great evening.

Went to The Floating Restaurant on 7/25 with a party of 6. Sat outdoors, which is nice. Our waitress told us she just fills in when they get busy. She was terrible. Not friendly at all. We all had to ask to have our drinks refilled. You would think after the first person asked, she would assess the drink situation, but she did not and 3 of us had to ask for refills. Got confused on our very simple split ticket request. our soda was flat and when my husband asked for a fresh soda, he was told "they all come out of the same dispenser, so your next one will be flat too. Didn't think or offer to have the situation corrected.
We ordered appes, and they took way to long, over a half hour for a few appes. I went inside and saw no one seated inside the restaurant, so they were no way near full capacity.
The calamari was decent, but the peanut pea spring rolls were just awful. The filling was loaded with oil before frying. Inedible. I had blackened salmon caeser, the fish was good, but the dressing on the salad tastes like mayo. No flavor at all. Three people ordered burgers and no one was asked how they wanted them cooked. They serve their burgers one
way-over cooked and hard and dry.
Will not be returning here.

We sat out on the floating dock and had a great view of the lake. The waitress was very good but the service was slow. We went early and had no trouble getting a table but thought the food service would be faster. Maybe this was like the service in Europe. The food was good but not great. I would have to think about returning for the food.

worth the drive, one would want to go here specifically, unless vacationing in Hope, but beautiful drive and a unusual place to eat that serves good food.
