Travelling through Sandpoint ID, we asked the desk clerk at our lodging establishment to suggest a place for supper. She named a place on the lake and the Hydra. As we were more interested in a good steak than anything else, we chose the Hydra. We were pleasantly surprised when being seated at the intimacy of the place. We ordered a seafood appetizer, my wife ordered prime rib and I ordered a NY strip. We were very elated at the selections at the salad bar, and contented ourselves with ample but not overly large portions. The appetizer was delicious. Fresh and tasty. The entrees were very good, but my wife's choice of potato was not sufficiently cooked. My baked potato was excellent. The summer medley of vegetables complemented the beef selections quite well. As it was a Wednesday night, we were struck by the number of local people dining there. All in all, we would highly recommend this establishment to through travelers.
