Twenty minutes from Sandpoint, Idaho, The Floating Restaurant in Hope has been one of the area’s finest dining experiences for over 25 years.

Open late April to early October for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, Lake Pend Oreille’s only Floating Restaurant has been offering made from scratch specialties and providing the best catering in the area by Chef/owner Elissa Robbins, since 1989.
