If you plan on visiting this Idaho city with the slightly intimidating name, you’ll want to know how to pronounce where you’re going first. Coeur D’Alene, pronounced kore-duh-LANE, sits in the northwest of the state and is known for its lake that shares that name. There, travelers flock to the gorgeous mountain and water views and tons of outdoor fun. Whether you want to hit the beach, water ski, kayak or just see the sights, you’ll not be left wanting for options.
But where do you go when you’re ready to fuel up for a day of fun, or to kick back with a drink after a day on the water? You'll not be left wanting for options there, either. Here are some of the best places to eat and drink in Coeur D’Alene — and our top picks just scratch the surface.
Izzy’s Comfort Kitchen is a family-owned and operated restaurant that offers upscale comfort food and bottomless brunches, plus a few vegetarian and gluten-free options.
The menu includes some southern fair that you might be surprised to see this far north, but don’t pass up the pimento cheese board, fried green tomatoes or fried chicken. Other options include pot roast, mac ’n cheese and shrimp and grits.

Honey Eatery & Social Club is an all-day bistro, with a robust menu, live music and plenty of drinks.
It’s your spot to go for craft cocktails with a side of even more modern comfort food and southern-style eats. Try the cast iron cornbread, deviled eggs and meatloaf, but save room for dessert, too. You won't want to miss the pineapple upside down cake served with cinnamon caramel and a brown sugar ice cream.

Like every town where the water is a main hub of activity, Coeur d’Alene has some stellar seafood restaurants.
Try Fisherman’s Market & Grill for not only your fresh fish, sushi and (five types of!) fish and chips, but also fresh mussels, clams and oysters, and squid and octopus, too.

Another seafood option — a bit more high-end — is Anthony’s at Coeur D’Alene, which features both indoor and outdoor dining, with both a dinner and a sunset menu. Expect fresh and seasonal offerings, such as the award-winning clam chowder, pan-fried oysters, crispy calamari and more.
If you’re more interested in this destination’s drinking scene than the dining scene, be sure to make tracks for Coeur D’Alene Cellars.
You’ll find the creative winery’s full menu of wines available for tastings, and paired with yummy cheese and charcuterie boards. Take a bottle of wine home and be sure to stop by for one of the winery's events, such as live music and winemaking sessions.
