What People Are Saying

5/2/20: "Tonight we stopped at Couger Mountain Lodge for dinner. That has to be the best Burger I have ever had!!!!" - Jeff

12/31/2018: "The restaurant featured below is hiding out in the mountains of central Idaho and there’s nothing fancy about it. However, you might just find yourself going out of your way to eat here. Boasting classic dishes that never disappoint and a simple, nostalgic atmosphere, this restaurant is reminiscent of simpler times and it’s oh-so-charming....It's hard to believe that hundreds of cars pass by this lovely lodge on Highway 55 every single day without giving it a second glance. This place is the definition of a hidden gem dining destination, and you really couldn't ask for better 'road food'."
