Although The Floating Restaurant in Hope has been a local landmark for over 35 years, 2015 marks the biggest change since our new marina in 1997.

A completely rebuilt venue offers a beautiful new dining room, modern lounge and an always popular, covered patio. We still offer great outdoor patio seating for the sun lovers and those who prefer to get just a little closer to the lake.

Twenty minutes past Sandpoint, on Hwy 200, The Floater is open Easter to mid October for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Lake Pend Oreille's only floating restaurant offers made from scratch specialties and outstanding, custom catering by longtime Chef/owner Elissa Robbins.

We proudly serve only the freshest ingredients, including fresh seafood, local buffalo, certified angus beef and savory pastas. All soups, sauces, breads and desserts are prepared on-site from scratch and we tap into our local farmers, gardeners and foragers for that farm-to-table freshness.

A full bar and outstanding wine list compliment the regionally inspired fare. Kid's menu too!

Accessible by boat or car, The Floater is located at Hope Marina, 47392 Hwy 200, East Hope, Idaho.
