“Great little restaurant”
Reviewed November 20, 2010

I found this place on TripAdvisor and decided to check it out. I was not disappointed, as a matter of fact I went back the next day for lunch as well. I had the Grand Teton burger and the Hoback Chicken both with the house salad and the food was great and homemade. The place fills up quickly for lunch and it is not that big. If you are in Idaho Falls, make it a point to stop by this place, you will not be disappointed.

“One of the best restaurants in Idaho Falls!”
Reviewed November 8, 2010

After hearing about The Snakebite for years we finally went with a gift certificate from Restuarants.com. We could only use it on dinner items so we went in the evening and ordered from the wonderful dinner menu. The food was as close to gourmet that you will get in Idaho Falls! The service was wonderful and our waiter couldn't have been more on top of everything. My sister came into town the next week and I took her there for lunch. We ordered a hamburger and some pasta to share between the two of us. So good!!! The service wasn't as good and the atmosphere wasn't as nice as at night but still worth the visit. I would definetly give The Snakebite a try. It is my new favorite restuarant!

“Sidewalk tables perfect on a hot day”
Reviewed August 15, 2010

As first-time visitors to Idaho Falls, we asked staff at the museum we'd been visiting to recommend somewhere for lunch. Thank heavens for local knowledge. This is a funky little restaurant on a corner in the historic downtown district. It was a hot day, so we appreciated being able to sit at a shady table on the sidewalk. The menu has the sort of items you might expect on offer at lunchtime -- burgers, sandwiches, pasta and salads -- but they include some unusual ingredients that make each dish an original. We opted for salads, both very tasty.

In case you're wondering about the quirky name, it's a bit of a pun, I assume: a bite to eat just a couple of blocks from the Snake River that flows through town. Stroll over after your meal and enjoy the scenic greenbelt walkway.

“Nothing to look at - but great food”
Reviewed August 10, 2010

In downtown Idaho Falls this looks bit crabby from the outside and nothing special - but the food was great and reasonable price. They do not accept credit cards but they do have an ATM on the premises.

“We chose the Snake Bite over family...”
Reviewed August 4, 2010

We chose the Snake Bite over family favorite Olive Garden... Good choice!! One meal in Idaho falls, and it was great! It was a little pricey, but the food was fresh and everyone enjoyed their meal. Three of us got the Blue Snake burger-it was awesome. If you like bacon, get the burger blackened with the bacon. The salmon sandwich tasted
good for those that don't do beef. For sure get the fry sauce- too bad though that it costs extra. The service was fantastic. Overall great food, at an okay price
