We have been driving by the Lodge (even before it was redone) and Forty One South (the Lodge's restaurant) and have meant to stop in. Strangely, they do not serve lunch (which is when we usually pass by). We had out of town guests and decided to try it. We are really glad we did. There were 6 of us... More

Everything here, except the prices, was average. Our food had a nice presentation but the ingredients, blend, tastes etc.. were very basic and not at all like you would expect for the price and given the atmosphere/marketing/reputation. Not a very intimate place...it was pretty loud and the restaurant was only one-quarter occupied.

We decided to cross the Long Bridge from Sandpoint to try Forty One South, based on good reviews. Being the top restaurant in Sagle doesn't mean much, but... The atmosphere is cabin by the lake. We were there in winter, but I'm sure the view is great in summer! Unfortunately, the fireplace (nice touch) was smoking up the dining room... More

Love the setting overlooking the RIver/Lake near the long bridge it is hard to beat for location. The lodge rustic setting with large fireplaces, and authentic Idaho architecture makes it a nice place for a quiet dinner or larger groups. I like the selections of salads, pastas, seafood and meats. I have tried the Salmon, Trout, chicken, and pasta dishes... More

Celebrated my mother's 8th birthday at this restaurant. They had just replaced the tables and chairs and the replacements are definitely an improvement. The food was good and priced reasonably but the ribs, which three of us ordered was way over cooked. The meat completely fell off the bones and the ends were tough. It seemed that the ribs were...
