    Stagecoach Inn: A Real Boise Original

    by ATXtraveler Written Jan 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Being from Texas, I was skeptical as to what to expect when many locals recommended I go to a steakhouse for local Idaho cuisine.

    Idaho has its roots deeply planted in the pioneer lifestyle, and beef/potatoes are a staple in the Idahoan's diet.

    The Stagecoach Inn is an interesting piece of Idaho history, very dark and although smoking is no longer allowed... you can see the stains of past transgressions. The Bar area was very lively with customers, however no one in the place was younger than 50.

    The food was very good, although overpriced for a steak not from Texas.

    Favorite Dish: I had the prime rib with baked potato and salad.... delicious.

    I would suggest eating at the lodge. Its close and the food is good..The breakfast menu consists of American and Mexican-influenced items. Choose from the famous Mt. Heyburn buttermilk pancakes, a healthy breakfast including a Sawtooth Smoothy and granola de Redfish, your choice of incredible omelets, or heuvos Redfish.

    For lunch, there is a delicious selection of sandwiches, salads, and soups. The bow-Thai chicken salad with bow-tie pasta and Thai spices, and the sandwich de Amy with smoked Idaho trout, pesto, tomatoes, and parmesan cheese are two favorites.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite is of course the dinner menu. They have a larger selection of appetizers, salads, and entrees. Prime rib, lamb rack, Idaho rainbow trout (all served with an Idaho baked potato) are just a few of the mouthwatering dinners to enjoy. Of course, no meal would be complete without a slice of homemade Marion-berry pie a la mode or Grand Mogul Mud Pie!

    by pargolfer Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For Upscale, the Desert Sage in Boise can't be beat. For mid-scale and awesome surroundings the Cottonwood Grille on the river in Boise is nice.
    Desert Sage is in the Heart of Downtown Boise with lots of nightlife and events within walking distance.
    Cottonwood Grille overlooks the Boise River and is close to downtown and nightlife.
    Both restaurants have superb wine lists at reasonable prices.

    Favorite Dish: Wild Trout and Mushroom Lasagna at Desert Sage
    Filet Mignon at Cottonwood Grille

    Mac's Diner: Nachos in the dark!

    by Treeman28 Updated Jan 7, 2010

    We didn't so much as choose this diner to eat, rather than came across it first out of two possibilities in the town. There had been fires, so there was a power cut. The proprietors provided us with candles and it was quite exhilarating to be eating in a log cabin by candlelight. The drinks came in large, cool glasses despite the heat (try the lemonade) and the nachos were sublime (and aplenty)

    Favorite Dish: Nachos. Not sure what they were down on the menu as, but they came as a platter with cheese, guacamole, sour cream, salad, salsa and refried beans

    by Will-Cathy Written Aug 24, 2002

    One of the best places to go in the Coeur d'Alene area is the Hot Rod Cafe. The food is awesome and it has a very unique atmosphere, which includes round tables, motorcycles, old cars, etc. Tomato Street is good, too, if you like Italian food. Also, unique to Coeur d'Alene is Criquets Restaurant.

    by kahiwa Written Aug 24, 2002

    There's a little restaurant in Wallace that serves GREAT food at very affordable prices. I think it's called '1313' and if you stop at the visitor center and ask directions, they'll tell you where it is. You should eat there!

    We also went to the Wolf Lodge for dinner. Interesting 'cabin-like' atmosphere, good steaks and fish.

    Favorite Dish: Anything on the menu at either restaurant is bound to be good.

    Richmond's Restaurant Tip

    by Richmond Written Sep 7, 2002



    6 medium Idaho Potatoes, well scrubbed

    1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet, cut in 1 1/2-inch chunks

    3 medium onions, peeled, quartered and separated into slices

    3 medium green bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1 1/2 pieces

    6 1/2-inch slices of fresh pineapple, cored and cut into quarters

    1 cup Italian dressing or vinaigrette

    1/2 cup barbecue sauce
    6 lime wedges for garnish

    12 skewers (Note: if using wooden skewers soak in water for at least an hour, so they don't scorch on grill)


    Slice potatoes crosswise into 1/2-inch round slices. Cook potato slices in a large pot of boiling water until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Drain; cool.
    On each of 12 skewers, thread ingredients in the following order: a pepper to secure food, potato, pineapple, pepper, onion, salmon and another onion. Repeat, beginning with potato, until each skewer holds about eight inches of ingredients. End each skewer with pepper to secure. Continue with remaining skewers.
    Place skewers in a 13 x 9-inch pan and drizzle Italian dressing over them. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or until time to grill. Prepare grill.
    When grill is ready, lightly oil the grill tray to prevent kebabs from sticking. Grill kebabs, turning and basting often with barbecue sauce, about 6 - 7 minutes or until brown. Serve kebabs with lime wedge garnish.

    Lindy's Restaurant: Garfield and Snoopy

    by joiwatani Written Nov 6, 2011

    Part of our package deal was to have lunch at Lindy's restaurant. The package was $7.99 per person. We picked healthy menus in the restaurant because we didn't bring anything that has vegies on it on our own packed lunches which we ate later in the SUV.

    The adults chose Caesar's salad with grilled chicken and the children got themselves sandwiches. With our package deal, the kids can have free drinks of soda.

    The waitress called Garfield and Snoopy to entertain the kids. A guy was playing at the piano.

    The choices of food here is very limited.

    The Pizzeria: Pizzas at the Silverwood Theme Park

    by joiwatani Written Nov 6, 2011

    If you are coming from out of town in this theme park, you want to make sure to pack your lunches and go back to your car and eat it!

    The staff won't allow anybody to bring food in the theme park, but the selection of food at the restaurant is very limited to cold food and some heated foods like hot dogs and microwavable food only.

    There is a pizzeria but the pizza is not good either.

    Test your skill: Ice cream at the theme park

    by joiwatani Written Nov 6, 2011

    One of the weaknesses of my children is ice cream. Wherever we go, they wanted to go to ice cream parlor. The Silverwood Theme Park is no exception.

    Even if it's cold, they still hit the ice cream place!
