Went to a business lunch at Elevation 486. First of all, what a great location with amazing views for a dining experience. Had the Tri-tip sandwich, very flavorful and tender. Service was great and the prices were very reasonable.

This is a fun spot to eat! Situated right on the Snake River Canyon every table has a stunning view of the canyon. In the warmer months they open the patio and have a fire pit at one end. As far as location with views and food this is the best possible place to eat!

The food is fantastic too. A few of my favorites are, the Chicken Marsala and the meatloaf, it has a bit of a kick to it. I also love the fries here, they are skinny and crispy. And I never order a meal without a lettuce wedge, super good!

This is a hot spot in Twin, if you're visiting this is a do not miss!

This is a favorite restaurant of ours. Most of the tables have a great view of the Snake River Canyon, so that is a plus. There is outdoor seating available when the weather is nice. The place fills up quickly, so reservations are recommended for weekends or special occasions.
We have always had excellent service and food.
Sometimes the bar area can get a bit noisy if you are seated close to it, but otherwise the noise level is pretty good for conversation.
Trivia: The reason it is named Elevation 486 as the is how many feet it is from the river to the canyon edge.

We've been to dinner at Elevation many times, and it is our favorite place in not just Twin Falls, but in the whole area. Yesterday was our first time in for lunch. With a sweater, the weather was warm enough, even in April, for us to sit on their patio so we could enjoy the incredible view.
Everything was first rate, from the food to the service to the great margaritas. I'm writing again about this place because of one main thing from our lunch. About the time we were expecting our meals to come out, the waitress came over to let us know that the chef felt he had overcooked one of our burgers and didn't feel right about serving it. We waited just a few extra minutes and all of our meals came out together, perfectly. Other than the salads they had re-cooked all of the entrees so that we could all eat together at the same time. None of us had ever seen this before and we all thought is was a great way to deal with the situation. And by the way, their signature burger, which has smoked gouda cheese, thinly sliced grilled apple, Canadian bacon and regular bacon is probably the best burger I've ever had. I don't know where they came up with this combination, but it sure works.
