Amazing, delicious...so simple yet flavor with flair!!! Chowder was light, tasty and creamy. Homemade with heart, you can taste it! The fish and chips are to die for. Melt in your mouth pieces...of just fried right fish without heavy oil. Fresh green salad...and oh so so so so yummy cole slaw. Quite comfortable homey setting. I literally had a piece... More

Great fresh fish. The fresh trout was excellent as were the fresh cut fries. Cash only but worth the few minute drive off I84 Reasonably priced and friendly service

My wife and I had the fisn'n'chips and my daughter had the trout. Wish I ordered the trout but it was all really good. I was on a road trip and very surprised, I was expecting a so-so cafe. Great place!

This is such a hidden secret hot spot right off the Rupert square. I have family that travel from Denver, Co that loves to always make sure they stop here to eat once or twice during their 5 day stay. Fish & Chips are yummy too with a little Homemade bread and their own creative salads to share.

Headed to Twin Falls and looking for a place to eat on our way. Pulled off in Rupert where family use to live. Pleased to find this restaurant. The owner was friendly and very gracious. We enjoyed visiting and reminiscing with him. We had the fish and chips, prawns and salad. The fries (chips) were hand cut. So good. Fish... More

Fresh fish -- cod, salmon and trout on menu today -- clams and veggies straight from the garden! The cole slaw was delicious, fries were cut and fried fresh, and the people in the restaurant, including other diners, made you feel right at home. If you like fish, do not pass this place up. Credit cards are not accepted, so... More

It's about 10 minutes off the highway, in a little Idaho town. A nondescript storefront. Step inside and go back in time. Basic tables. Menu written on a whiteboard. Local clientele. Literally mom and pop - mom makes the food and dad waits the tables. Fish was thick pieces of moist, flavorful cod. Hand-cut fries from locally-grown potatoes. Bread and... More

The menu is on a board on the wall. You basically have 3 choices: fish & chips, Chicken strips or prawns & chips. With optional salad. BUT the fish and chips were Excellent. Served with lots of fries. Tarter sauce was the best too. The atmosphere is plain, simple tables and chairs. No frills. Seems to be a favorite in... More
