Love the setting overlooking the RIver/Lake near the long bridge it is hard to beat for location. The lodge rustic setting with large fireplaces, and authentic Idaho architecture makes it a nice place for a quiet dinner or larger groups. I like the selections of salads, pastas, seafood and meats. I have tried the Salmon, Trout, chicken, and pasta dishes... More

Celebrated my mother's 8th birthday at this restaurant. They had just replaced the tables and chairs and the replacements are definitely an improvement. The food was good and priced reasonably but the ribs, which three of us ordered was way over cooked. The meat completely fell off the bones and the ends were tough. It seemed that the ribs were...

Always love going to Forty One South. Love the food (they have a goat cheese appetizer to die for!!) and what's better that getting to eat while looking out at Lake Pend Oreille. Um nothing ;-)

We recently had our son's wedding reception at Forty-One South.We received so many comments about the excellent quality of the food. From the appetizers to the main course; everything was absolutely wonderful. Cassandra and her staff were efficient , friendly, and professional. Many of our guests said that this was the best wedding meal they ever had.Thank You, Forty One... More

The food is adequate, but does not justify the outrageous prices... I guess the prices wouldn't be bad if the food was exceptional but it's not... I guess if you don't mind getting gouged on prices it's a nice place to go the summer because the outside dining on the lake and it's also accessible by boat

We drove 45 miles north to Sandpoint to celebrate our 29th. Service is good but sometimes servers are hovering to take away the plate the second you put down the fork. Prices seemed high but this is a fairly rural area of Idaho. Ambiance is excellent and so is the view if there when it is still light out. Wine... More

I summer in Sandpoint and chose Forty One South for dinner the night before we left for the winter. There were four of us and everyone had a great dinner; well prepared and well served. I had the duck and it was great; crisp-crisp skin. Probably the best restaurant in Sandpoint.

Paella was not what I was expecting. One of the mussels had not even opened. Didn't find any chicken and the saffron rice was heavily spiced with what tasted like paprika! Was sadly disappointed unfortunately as was looking forward to tasting the seafood. My husband had chicken cordon blue that was a 9.5 rating. He thoroughly enjoyed it. Location is... More

Young wait staff, great young lady seated us, said it was her first week. Hope manager is smart enough to keep her, when she didn't see drinks within a few minutes she came back over to make sure some had taken our order (they had). One of us had the mussels, good , not great. One had lamb sliders also,... More

For an overnight vacation stay at The Lodge at Sandpoint we decided to dine right next door at 41 South. What a great decision! We did not have reservations, but we were greeted warmly and promptly seated on one of the outdoor terraces with a spectacular view of the lake. The menu is diverse and there are mid price items...
