A local haunt, they offer a great menu, good portions and wonderful service. If the weather is good eat outside on the river.

The food was good. They were able to seat us inside but with a view of the river. Very nice. Our waitress was very good and attentive.

We were seated out on the deck overlooking the Snake River greenbelt -- lovely setting. I am particular about my martinis and the bartender got ours just right (increasingly rare these days since thanks to James Bond and all those frightful vodka "martinis" few have any idea any more of what a real martini is.) Also had a great bottle of Idaho wine -- a syrah from a winery called Cinder that I had never heard of. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Food was your standard upscale American restaurant fare, but no real complaints. My steelhead salmon was nicely cooked if a bit smallish; my partner's filet mignon was done just right. Sides were very good although offering a choice of starch or steamed vegetables seemed a bit on the cheap side. But a small quibble.

Delicious meal with a choice of indoor or outdoor seating and super friendly and helpful service. The portions are large, so if you have a lighter appetite, they will allow you to share a meal with a friend.

The meal was good, service adequate tho it seemed a little slow considering we dined on a Monday evening not a weekend. It seemed warmer than comfortable tho I would not have wanted to sit in the outside dining area.
