The Hydra is one of my favorite places in Sandpoint. The fries are amazing! A classic is the prime rib sandwich. Yum! My husband had the salmon which he said was perfect. Of course the mud pie is always my favorite.

The Hydra has been an institution in Sandpoint for years. The interior of the restaurant shows its age - it's very dated and looks like it needs a good dusting up in the beams. The tables are tucked in odd little corners and it's a...More
