This restaurant was voted as the best restaurant for 2012. We went there based on its reputation and good reviews. We weren’t impressed. First, location, the restaurant has no view. It’s in a lot with nothing next to it. It’s at one street away from the river and it has no river view. One of the few good things about this restaurant was the waitress was very friendly. We had prime rib sandwich and almond & panko crusted pan fried chicken breast. The prime rib was excellent. The chicken breast was tender inside and crunchy outside, very good. But the dish has no sauce so it’s dry and does not have much flavor. The broccoli also has no flavor. We expected great food, but our lunches were hit and miss so we were disappointed.

We stopped here for lunch with local friends on the way back to Salt Lake City at the end of our trip and it was very good. The best in Idaho Falls? Dunno, because we weren’t able to sample others of the same caliber, but it was very good, with well executed entrées, smooth wait staff, and low-key surroundings. Recommended.

This restaurant has an extensive salad and soup bar, fantastic steaks and seafood, pastas a light menu, menu for children and delectable deserts. There is something for everyone. The atmosphere is exceptional and they take reservations. Prices are moderate for such great offerings. Meals are half price with I.D. on your birthday. Its my favorite place to go on special occasions hands down

Decided to try this restaurant and it was ok. I had the seafood buffet . They advertised it as having crab legs... Well there were none to be seen at the buffet! We were even early. Husband had Prime Rib French Dip which he says was the best he had. However, waitress forgot his fries. Then when we were ready to leave we asked for a cup to take the Mountain Dew. The cup never came. Asked for it again on the way out. The gave us a new one to go.
In other reviews people raved about the lobster bisque!!! Definitely 5 star!!! Everything else, average.

We ate here on the recommendation of a local. All five people in our party were pleased with their menu selections, which varied from prime rib to seafood to dinner salad. The appetizers were not as generous, as we had hoped to share. Yummy, sinful dessert ! Overall a positive dining experience but a little pricy. I would eat here again when in the area.
