We're sorry you caught us in an unusual situation. Our staff is passionate and once in a while that leads to brief confrontations. Our food is still as great as you remember and we hope you'll forgive us and come back in soon.

We stopped here for lunch and it was definitely not crowded. The waitress was exceptional. When she heard we were visitors, she went around collecting books and maps of the Sandpoint area. The food was very good and the service was good. We had nice...More

Stopped in for lunch when Arlo's opened at 11:30 and easily got a table with a nice view of the water, highway, train tracks and snowcapped mountains in the distance. The food was great. The menu is simple, but don't let that fool you. The...More
