Everytime I come to sandpoint I have to go to spuds it's a great atmosphere and I love that they are over looking the marina such a beautiful view! Not to mention the food is so yummy!

Ate here twice on a recent family visit. The first time was for dinner with a large group (including a messy toddler). The service was outstanding and the food was really delicious. Everyone had something different. I had the Cuban style sandwich. Emphasis on "style" because it's definitely not a traditional Cuban sandwich, but it was incredible. Everyone else raved... More

We decided to try this place for breakfast and super glad we did. They did not have a huge selection, but what they did have was really quite good. We both had one of their breakfast scrambles and everything was fresh and tasty, even their coffee (they serve Evans Brothers). They also have an outdoor seating which would be fun... More

This was a hidden gem. With a name like Spuds Waterfront Grill, we were expecting burgers and french fries and beer. What we found was epicurean delight - a professional chef from Seattle creating unique and tantalizing entrees worthy of big city attention. With a waterfront view - how can you beat that??

My cousin from California and I ate on the deck at Spuds in early August, 2015. The food and atmosphere is great! Love this place and I have been here many times over the years. I have also been here with hikers all seasons of the year.

I was there for lunch and prefer a server rather than ordering in a doorway. However, the half chicken keeps me coming back.

This is a GREAT place for lunch. Both inside and outside seating. We had a table on the porch overlooking the little boat harbor. Sandwiches are outstanding. Plus it is literally next to a Starbucks. (they share a walkway) Highly recommend.

When we saw Lake Pend Oreille, we thought it would be a great place to stay and have breakfast. Sandpoint is Beautifully situated & a very Pleasant town. We googled to find the closest Starbucks and right next-door was this restaurant. We went and got our Starbucks lattes, walked across the balcony next-door to Spud's Waterfront Grill. Saw the Menu...

Although I had a potato to eat here, there is more to eat than just potatoes. The food here was pretty good. When entering, you order at the front door and they bring it to your table. The deck is right on the water front at the harbour.

The menu is simple, don't go off the one that is online as they seem to change it daily, sometimes weekly. They are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Open for lunch, then close from 4:00pm-5:00pm to prep for dinner. They have good salads as I had the Caesar salad with wild alaskan salmon and grilled shrimp. They did forget my... More

If Spud's is one thing, it's fresh. Fresh in the sense that we make everything from scratch, from every dressing, sauce and chutney, to elaborate soups and outstanding desserts. Spud's is also fresh in the sense in that our classic menu is continually reinspired by worldly flavors, regional style and seasonal ingredients. We adore the sophisticated touch of the West's best restaurants, and honor the casual comforts of small town North Idaho. Located in picturesque downtown Sandpoint, Idaho, Spud's Waterfront's reputation extends beyond the shores of Lake Pend Oreille as an excellent restaurant for locals and travelers alike. Dock your boat on the boardwalk, bike up from the beach, pull in on your way to the mountain, walk in before catching a show at the Panida.
