Bardenay Restaurant and Distillery - Eagle

Besides locations in Coeur d’Alene and Boise, Bardenay restaurant and distillery in Eagle is worth a visit. Just off Eagle Road next to the Hilton Garden Inn, the Eagle location along the river has a rustic atmosphere, consistently good food, live entertainment and decent service. Whether it’s lunch or dinner you’ll likely find this restaurant abuzz with a fun crowd and a packed parking lot. With high ceilings, a giant fireplace wall, huge bar and corner kitchen don’t expect privacy and quiet conversation.

The diverse lunch/dinner menu covers a range of appetizers, salads, sandwiches as well as hearty entrees. Our waitress stated the most sought after items were the trout or charbroiled salmon, the cod fish & chips, and any of the salads due to the appealing homemade dressings. It was hard to pass up the pear spinach salad with orange glazed nuts or the ahi sashimi salad. There are enticing side offerings like apricot walnut couscous or garlic mashed potatoes that accompany sandwiches and entrees. By far the most difficult decision was making a choice.

While many restaurants cook squid beyond oblivion into a chewy, rubbery mass, the cooks at Bardenay were right on the money. Our fried calamari appetizer was absolute perfection; tender on the inside, crispy on the outside. A bit of a spicy kick was detected in the batter which the menu accurately boasts cumin and chili powder. Judging from the orders being carried by our table the calamari was a much admired choice. Another appetizer that caught our eye was the gorgeous stack of bruschetta. We enjoyed an indulgent dish of garlic-parmesan creamy fettuccine alfredo and a salmon sandwich served on chewy, delicious “village” bread. The mango orange glaze and caramelized onions really made this a unique sandwich. The serving size of the salmon was ample enough for leftovers. Sadly, we weren’t able to treat ourselves to dessert after such a filling meal!
