Dining on the Edge is a casual restaurant with high class service and excellent food. The meal was superb, the service very professional and the cost was very reasonable. Even better if you choose to dine on the riverside patio.

I am a former resident of Orofino. Rather than going to our usual spot, I suggested meeting up with 8 friends at the Edge, July 30. It started okay, we were set up at a table inside at 6 pm, as it was too hot outside. Our drink order was taken, we were served, and when the last of our party arrived at around 6:30 our dinner order was taken, with salads arriving shortly thereafter. It then rapidly degenerated from there. 30 minutes after salads were taken, the first dinner (ribs) arrived. After waiting 10 minutes for the other meals to arrive told that diner not to wait for us. The next dinner arrived 10 minutes after, with the rest staggered over the next 20 minutes. So, rather than a nice meal TOGETHER, we were forced to eat the meals as they arrived so they wouldn't get cold. The last diner, from ordering to getting his meal, waited over an hour. For a burger. He was offered a free drink for the long wait. The wait person was apologetic, but really didn't work to find out what the delay was. When I asked her to ask the manager if we could get a discount since it took so long to get our meals and we couldn't eat together, his answer to her was that since the food seemed satisfactory, and was edible, that no, we couldn't get a discount.

The restaurant was by no means busy, it was a Tuesday night. The manager made no attempt to address us directly, leaving it to the wait staff. While the taste of the food was okay, it was pricey for what we got, and with the horrid service, I would never recommend the Edge to anyone.

This entire experience is a poor reflection for Orofino. There are other places in town to eat, and I will be going back to our usual spot from now on when I am in town.

This restaurant at the edge of the Clearwater River has a very extensive menu, from lite meals to full, gourmet dinners. Worth a try. I think it is the only "nice" restaurant around.

Right next door to the Best Western. The food is wonderful with a diverse menu. It is located next to the Clearwater River with a nice balcony for dining outside.

Enjoyed an early evening dinner on the patio. Friendly service. Delicious food. View of the river was beautiful.
