  1. I don't know about the food...but I recall driving thru and I literally had to stop the car just before getting to the city limits (coming from Montana) because it was so beautiful! Really...it was such an awesome view I got kinda verklumpt. I'd buy something at a deli and sit along the lake and eat. Google it.

    1. We love Takara, a block up from the street the resort is on. For special occasions (and a lot of money), there is Beverly's at the Resort, or Cedar's Floating Restaurant (although I think they may have changed hands since I was last there). There is also a good Greek restaurant next to Takara's, and a Mexican restaurant across the street. Sorry I am not better with the names.

      1. Takara for sushi and Cedars for everything else. Hudson's hamburgers is across the street from the resort and they are wonderful!

          Agreed. Hudson's hamburgers is the best I've ever had.

        2. We stopped at Takara enroute back east in October and concur it is outstanding for sushi

          1. i haven't been in years but Wolf Lodge Inn ..was unforgettable. It's a steakhouse (I found it from a 10 best steaks in the USA list) the smallest steak is about 16oz they are cooked on open wood grill ... the entire experience is something you won't really get anywhere else ... this & hudson's hamburgers would be my recs..

              We were there eons ago and steaks were vg. Felt like John Candy :) I remember they had some type of potatoes which we weren't familiar with the name and asked waitress who replied "they're like JoJo Potatoes" which being from east coast didn't help at all. LOL!

              P.S. One disappointment here and all places in ID was that they had very weak, lousy coffee???

            2. Phone Coeur d'Alene Cruises if you have an evening to while away: at the dock in front of the Coeur d'Alene Casino, dinner tours go out for about four hours, a baked salmon picnic style dinner and bar---nothing truly spectacular, but if you like to be on the water and out in the open air, it's fun---we make a scramble to stake out a table on the upper deck, rain or shine, and we don't mind the chill when the wind comes sweeping in after you get moving. Do take a jacket even in summer. For the less hardy, there's a warming indoors, where you can get good window views. Sometimes the performer they have aboard is great. There are other evenings...but that's why you sit on the upper deck and just watch the million-dollar lake houses go by.
