This was by far the best dinner I had on this vacation. I had the Quail and it was divine. It had a jalapeno pepper sauce on it that just had enough of a tang to it. I also highly recommend the huckleberry ice cream....More

Delicious food and fantastic view! We ate on the patio and, even with the haze from the forest fire smoke, it was a beautiful evening with unbelievable scenery. We would definitely return to this restaurant when back in Idaho.
