Restaurants in Coeur d’Alene, ID

Surrounded by the awe-inspiring natural beauty of northern Idaho and just east of Spokane, Coeur d’Alene offers a wide variety of eating experiences, from handsome steaks at Wolf Lodge Inn to halibut & chips at the Fisherman’s Market. It’s home of a legendary burger shop — Hudson’s Hamburgers, which has a very short counter and always a long wait to get in. At the edge of town is Meltz, a storefront where the watchwords are “Extreme Grilled Cheese” and specialties include a Korean Krazy (pepperjack & provolone, BBQ beef, crushed sesame sticks, cilantro pesto, hot pepper ketchup, and kimchi relish) and the Idahoan (meat loaf, mashed potatoes, chili, colby cheese, and roasted garlic). For sophisticated but casual breakfast on an outdoor patio, Garnet is a farm-to-table gem.
