We had a nice family dinner right after Dish opened for the season. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. The food was good. The menu had recently changed and some favorites were no longer on it. Some of us had hoped for more seafood...More

Susan~ Thank you for your feedback, Susan. Please accept our apology for the limited seafood menu items. We wanted to do more seafood specials over the course of the summer instead of permanent menu fixtures. I'll let chef know, and thanks for bringing the family...More

A nice quiet dinner with wonderful view of the marina. Our server was very polite and helped us with the menu choices.

If the food were as tasty as the view is fine, I could happily recommend Dish. But the food is disappointingly ordinary. My ahi salad was not quite edible. The fish was flavorless and the greens were drowned in dressing. This was our second visit...More

We had a reservation and got a table "on the rail" which gave us a wonderful view of the lake out on the deck. While the server seemed a little distracted (beyond it just being busy - she never did bring the hot sauce), dining...More

Salmon, fish & other meat dishes should be kept on ice. Fish smell everywhere while serving my salad, pastries, and other dishes. French toast was dry & tough. Should be made fresh as it is served. Fly's are a major problem for the restaurant. Bloody...More

Dish remains a terrific place to eat despite heavy competition. We drove over today for lunch. The weather was perfect so we sat outside. The food was, as always, amazing. I elected to have the couscous salad which was delicious. The portion was so large...More

We went to dinner here one night while staying at Estate on the Lake B&B. The food was excellent and the service was good with a lovely view of the lake and marina. Would definitely recommend it if you are in the area.

from the fresh salmon and beat salad, to the daily special that had a fresh made huckleberry sauce - the food was excellent. Sitting outside was great.

Sunday Brunch Buffet is a must do meal. Delicious food, eggs, quiche, salads, french toast. I enjoyed my brunch sitting on the patio overlooking the Pend Oreille River.
