Syringa Café - Riverside Dining

We will be open for the 2015 season on May 1st.

You will enjoy a unique dining experience at the Lodge's onsite restaurant, the Syringa Café, serving healthy Northwest style cuisine and featuring our famous homemade huckleberry pie.

In planning for your stay, or restaurant reservation, here are a few things you need to know:

Dinner: (Menu)

We will be open for dinner seven days a week between May 1st and September 7th, 2015. Reservations are required as we have limited seating. Reservations need to be made at least four hours in advance. From September 8th until we close October 11th, the restaurant is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Every day dinner is served with one seating. During Lochsa season dinner begins with appetizers at 7:00 p.m. We offer a four-course meal, served family style. Each evening there is a set appetizer, salad, main course, side dish and dessert along with non-alcoholic fountain beverages and coffee or tea. Price is $25 ($15 for children 12 and under). Tax, alcoholic beverages and gratuity are not included. We have an extensive wine list and beer in bottles and on tap.

Breakfast: (Menu)

Breakfast is served by reservation for our cabin guests only, daily from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. If your activity is scheduled for 8:00 a.m. breakfast will be served at 7:00 a.m. Reservations for breakfast need to be made by 7:00 p.m. the night before. Breakfast is served family style. See menu for prices. Tax and gratuity are not included.

Weekday Lunches: (Menu)

Lunches are provided on all daily activities. Otherwise, box lunches may be ordered in advance to enjoy in your cabin or take with you if you’re exploring on your own. The Syringa Cafe is open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11:00 am to 4:00 P.M. Walk-ins welcome.

Saturday & Sunday Lunch: (Menu)

We are open for lunch Saturday and Sunday from 11am until 4pm. Our menu features salads, soup, pastas, fish, meat and vegetarian options. Reservations for the weekend lunch are not required, but appreciated. Call the lodge directly at 208-926-4300. We have our legendary huckleberry pies by Lorraine and other delectable desserts.

Please note: Any guests staying at our cabins that are not part of an all-inclusive package are encouraged to make meal reservations with our office at the time of reservation. You can wait until you arrive at River Dance Lodge but because of limited seating we may not be able to accommodate you. The nearest grocery store is 15 miles away and we do not sell food items in our souvenir shop, so we welcome you to make reservations and enjoy your meals at the lodge dining room.


May – June Lochsa Season Special

On Friday and Saturday during the Lochsa rafting season of May and June, those rafting with us return to the Lodge sometime between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. For the next couple of hours we show photos from the day’s rafting excitement in the lodge dining area. Beer, wine, other beverages and light appetizers are available for sale during this time. Then, for those with reservations, we serve dinner. This begins at 7:00 p.m with appetizers.
