Cedars had special lunch hours and menu for Valentines Day and we checked it out. We had the steak oscar and a 6oz sirloin. Both and the sides were excellent. The salad bar here continues to be among the best we've experienced in this area. Our server, Laura, we recognized from last month's visit was again superb. The view of... More

we had dinner at Cedars the other night and enjoyed the salad bar dinner and lake views. Nice place to dine a little out of the way which is part of the ambiance of the place

It's Cedars, so you know the view was wonderful. My husband ordered the surf and turf ($38?) and I ordered the seared ahi. My husband was a little underwhelmed with his portion size, but both the prime rib and crab leg were delicious. My ahi had 3 sauces (peanut, soy and cucumber wasabi), with Jasmine rice and asparagus. I found... More

Working group dinner at Cedars. Parking is plentiful which is refreshing in Coeur d'Alene! Restaurant floats on dock so one woman in our party was a little unstable in her high heels. Deck chairs were definitely underwhelming for the price and perception of "fancy". Food was very good--no complaints at table of 12. Service was also good. Watched osprey out... More

Just had dinner at The Cedars again, It has become a monthly date for us. It never gets old.....always exciting as we walk down the ramp. This time, however, my husband had their Cedar Plank Salmon Oscar........the perfect salmon topped with crab and Bearnaise sauce. Absolutely delicious! I had the filet mignon and added the crab & Bearnaise sauce. As... More

Beautiful location on floating deck on the lake. Nicely lit at night. Expansive salad bar and delicious food. Early bird special from 4-5:30 pm was a draw for us. Had several nice meals there over the course of our stay. Would definitely go back!

Great food with a great experience. Our boys love sitting outside in the summer and feeding the geese and ducks. The rack of lamb is great and the steak with peppercorn sauce and crab legs is always delicious. The huckleberry daiquiri is always good. Also, get your kids a scoop if huckleberry icecream for dessert. The salad bar is amazing... More

We went to Cedars last night for my birthday and due to a snowstorm were almost the only ones there. Awesome salad bar as usual. We had prime rib and planked salmon both of which were on the early bird menu (before 5:30.) And our server, Laura, brought us a birthday dessert of huckleberry ice cream. All of the food... More
