The best restaurants in Idaho Falls

No evening or day out is complete without a proper meal.

If you’re celebrating a special occasion or you want to ring in the start of the weekend in style, why not make it extra special?

You will have plenty of restaurants in Idaho Falls to choose from. Here’s just a sampling of some of the best restaurants in Idaho Falls that will create lasting memories and leave you wanting seconds.

Stockman’s Restaurant

There’s a long family history at Stockman’s. The first Stockman’s Café opened in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, in 1947, then later moved to Idaho Falls about a decade ago, which led to the establishment of the restaurant, which specializes in fresh-cut steaks, homemade dressings and some of the best cheesecake and dessert dishes around.

At first, you might be overwhelmed by the comprehensive menu. Many of the dishes come with sides, such as garlic mashed potatoes, white cheddar macaroni and cheese, rice pilaf, asparagus and other healthy choices.

For a big eat, try the steak dinner combinations. The steak and lobster come in at 10 ounces each and are served with your choice of two sides. Diners can also choose the steak and king crab legs, steak and fried coconut shrimp, steak and seared ahi and other surf and turf options.

The signature steaks are the showstoppers. Diners can pick from a wide selection of amazing cuts, including zesty sirloin, filet mignon, various rib eyes, prime rib, medallions and others. If you’re up for it, try the Stockman’s all-you-can-eat sirloin. It comes with two sides.

The SnakeBite Restaurant

In the mood for American fare such as burgers, steak and seafood in a casual yet inviting setting? The SnakeBite Restaurant is the place to be.

Family-owned since the early 1990s, SnakeBite is a preferred destination for a bite on the Snake River. To get started, try the Mesa Falls fries (waffle style), salmon cakes with a dash of chipotle sour cream, onion rings, coconut prawns or the SnakeBite hot wings.

The grill menu is packed with some incredible dishes, including several specialty burgers including Snake River, Grand Teton, Rocky Mountain, cowboy and the House Grinder Burger with USDA prime sirloin that’s double ground in-house.

Chicken pesto, hot pot, little Marie and Pomodoro pasta round out the pasta menu. Salads and other foods, like fish tacos, are also on the menu.


Jump into this scenic eatery, known for hand-cut steaks, super-fresh seafood and pastas. Make sure you stay for the homemade desserts and order something from the extensive wine, cocktail and beer list.

The rib steak is 16 ounces of boneless rib steak that’s charbroiled and prepared to your liking. You can enhance the rib steak, or any steak such as the top sirloin, New York Steak and filet, with crab, shrimp, sauteed mushrooms and other scintillating steak add-ons.

Other entrees to consider are the Idaho rainbow trout dish that’s pan-seared, oven-roasted and served almondine style. The Walleye is a cashew-encrusted filet that’s topped with sweet hazelnut butter sauce. Surf and turf combinations might also catch your eye. Some of the options to pick from are Hawaiian crunch halibut, shrimp, Alaskan king crab and lobster tail.

Pasta lovers will likely gravitate toward the chicken and artichoke penne made with Cajun chicken, slow-roasted tomatoes, snow pea pod and artichoke hearts in an impossibly creamy Alfredo and pesto sauce.

The Diablas Kitchen

Owner Deana Brower has a passion for food. Her goal for all her customers is for them to enjoy delicious and beautiful food. Everything is made from scratch, live music fills the air and staff is happy to make a drink recommendation that completes the meal.

Much to the delight of regulars, The Diablas Kitchen focuses on comfort food that pops with bursts of flavors in every bite. The everyday menu features the quiche of the day, French dip and seasonal salads.

Customers swear by the biscuits and gravy made with oat and smoked gouda biscuits with a special sausage gravy that’s served with two eggs and breakfast potatoes. Other favorites are the Diablas Rueben, which is uniquely prepared with slow-roasted corned beef, a signature spread sauce, sauerkraut and melted Swiss cheese on grilled marble rye bread. Other menu highlights include fish and chips, adult grilled cheese, Cubano and the Carolina chicken.
