“Coeur d'Alene: Unique menu with wonderful fresh choices like chicken & waffles with huckleberry sauce. Largest draft brew and cider selection around, extensive wine list, indoor and outdoor seating, casual, hip atmosphere. On Sherman Ave. with shops nearby. ”

Sushi Restaurant
$$
“Do you have a craving for sushi? Try our own local Syringa (named after the Idaho state flower). It's fresh, authentic and the wait staff is lively. This is a cozy spot and can fill up fast as word has gotten out that it is the place to be on a late night. Leave the kids at home, it is a small building and they may feel cooped up.”

Burger Joint

“A famous walk-in piece of CDA history on the downtown strip. Straightforward hand formed beef patties on a bun with pickle. They still do not offer fries on their menu . . . just like 100 years ago. Counter bar only.”

“At the CDA resort, fantastic place with an amazing view of the lake, great service and very good food. If you got there for lunch it will be reasonable, dinner expensive. The resort also has a couple of very nice spots to just have a drink. Probably 5 minute or so walking distance. ”
