We visited the Fort Ground Grill on August 3, 2016 with friends. During the 1940's and 1950's the Grill was previously known as 'The Fort Grounds Tavern." Today the owners have turned what was once a "seedy tavern near lumber mills," into a family dining restaurant. My friends each ordered the Fish & Chips so my Wife and me ordered... More

Our family of four enjoyed this cozy restaurant. Great barbecue sauce for the chicken tenders (per kids). The veggie sandwich was a solid vegetarian option. The area around the Grill is fun to explore, and a nearby park is a great place to run the kids.

Talk about a wait. We waited 10 mins before a server approached our table for first time. Then waited 45 minutes for our lunch. Server said they were short staff and didn't expect this large of a crowd on a Saturday afternoon at 12:30pm! Come on people! If you can get past the wait, there's a table waiting for you.... More

Fun bar and good food--- especially breakfast at the Fort Ground Grill. A bit hard to find but tucked away near the North Idaho College and old historic neighborhood of Coeur d'Alene. The food is good and the bar is friendly with good drinks.

found the neighborhood restaurant of my dreams. Good breakfast with perfectly cooked eggs AND glutten free toast. Restaurant was a short 1 block walk from the house we were renting so we'll be back. The waitress was so pleasant and informative about activities in C dA.

We came here on a tip from some friends who always go here when they're in town. The fish and chips were fresh, hot and delicious (and large), and the classic burger was juicy and hit the spot. Service left a little to be desired -- not rude by any means, but not very friendly. The place was moderately busy... More
