We came on labor day. They were out of a lot of menu options as it was a busy weekend. I mean a lot. We decided to get an app of brussel sprouts. Which arrived immediately. And were burnt to all hell. Like they had been sitting on the stove all day, not edible. They took it off our ticket, we paid for our glasses of wine and called it a night. Not so great experience. Would give them another shot as the server was sweet and its beautiful. But will call ahead next time to make sure they actually have edible food.

We dined with a reservation on Thai night as our whole group enjoys Thai food. There were two Thai entree offerings on the menu that night. One was a Shrimp Curry and the other a Beef Pad Thai type offering. Since two of our group can't eat shell fish they choose the Pork chop with White cheddar mac n cheese entree. I ordered the Shrimp curry but the waiter came back while we were enjoying our appetizers to tell us the kitchen was out of it so I switched to the Thai beef entree that the rest of the group had gone with. The appetizers (herb marinated olives and baked Brie were very good. The entrees were not as goo. The tow that had the prom chops felt the meat was flavorful but tough and the mac n cheese dry. The rest of us that had the beef Thai dish thought the meat tender and flavorful but the noodles it was served on dry. Next time we will go with a different choice and hopefully have enter luck.

Skip the scampi appetizer. Way too watery. Fries are good. Cocktails and wine rocked. Filet and flat iron steaks are well prepared. Sides could use some work. Potato dry and tasteless. Skipped dessert. Service was excellent.

Excellent food and great service. We had an early dinner and not many people dining yet. Water glasses were re-filled promptly. The food presentation was neither too quick or slow. Allowed time to savor the courses without feeling rushed or having to wait too long. The scallops with risotto was excellent as was the mahi-mahi.

Excellent food. My scallops were perfectly prepared and served on top of a delicious risotto. My friend and I agreed that the roasted brussel sprouts were the best either of us had ever had - a little charred, cooked through but not mushy, fabulous sauce. The staff we're scrambling to cover for a missing waiter so we had to wait for service. But the service was excellent was very good once they could get to us. It was a lovely evening so we ate outside. I've included a photo of the view from our table.

The table outside was closest to the lake with a beautiful view. The door from the restaurant to the patio shut loudly pretty frequently which detracted from the beautiful ambience. The server was pleasant and timely. My dinner of Thai shrimp soup, halibut and chess pie was good, but not exceptional. I’d eat there again.

Our second time dining here was not nearly as satisfactory as our first. Great outdoor dining patio directly overlooking the lake makes it a fun setting. The service was solid and friendly. But, the menu was limited and the food was just okay. Swordfish Special was over cooked, but salads and appetizers were pretty tasty. If the menu is going to remain thin, how about adding some vegan or vegetarian options to fill the holes, and to please the plant-based diets.

After placing our order and receiving our wine, neither our server nor anyone else came near us for 45 minutes. We were seated right by the hostess station and the computer where servers enter orders. Only when I threatened to leave did anyone pay attention to us. Worst service ever.

I had low expectations as I have eaten in other restaurants in this small resort town with resolve to eat for sustenance. WOW was I surprised. This restaurant is a MUST VISIT!! I’m sure this will be our new favorite restaurant.

Service: The service was outstanding. The restaurant was full and we were unlucky to sit next to a boisterous party. The server accommodated us as soon as possible to better seating and a better view. Our server was great in understanding our desire for a quieter dinner. He had great recommendations for our dinner and was enjoyable. I believe his name was Chris?

Atmosphere: As earlier mentions, we were initially seated next to a louder party, but the situation was remedied quickly. Our new seating was perfect. The view was mesmerizing and relaxing, and we were able to hear each other without having to speak loudly.

Food: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. This is where I’m concerned I will not do the restaurant justice. My husband had the filet. His steak was cooked to perfection. I of course had to test it for him 😊 The searing was flawless with a slightly detectable crunch, while a perfect medium rare and tenderness on the inside. I had the scallops and risotto. ALSO, perfectly cooked. The scallops were seasoned with paprika and cooked to perfection. The risotto was TO DIE FOR!!! It was the consistency I love – not too runny and not too thick with creative additions of edamame and corn.

Overall – You must visit Rupert’s if you are in town.

Ruperts delivers again! Pleasantly surprised by both the quality of the wine, food and service. We had 4 steaks and one pork chop and they were all excellent. The service, although busy, was friendly and attentive. We ordered a nice wine, which was not overlooked by our server. It too was wonderful. Eating at two of the nicest places in McCall this week, Ruperts won the blue ribbon. The other was more expensive and while the food good, the servers needed more training...and it was double the price. Way to go Ruperts, we'll be back on our annual McCall vacation.

Wow, wish we would have read the reviews before making our reservation! The experience started out great, the two hostesses were very friendly and took us outside and seated us at a fantastic table overlooking the beautiful lake. Unfortunately, it then turned into the worst restaurant experience we have ever had!!!! As we sat there waiting to order a bottle of wine, there were at least three waitresses that walked by us on several occasions and never once acknowledged us or even made eye contact. After being ignored for 15 minutes, we finally just got up and left; the restaurant wasn’t even full, so no excuse for the way we were treated. If this restaurant was located in a big city, they wouldn’t be in business any more!! We have NEVER had to write a bad review for any restaurant we have been too, but as several others have posted, we felt like an inconvenience to the wait staff. Do yourself a favor and go to the Narrows or the Cutwater restaurants in the Shore Lodge, fantastic and accommodating wait staff and management.

It started off very promising. The manager took our order. He seemed quite knowledgeable but didn’t write anything down. After 25 min, we hadn’t received our drinks, the appetizers were wrong, and he was very busy taking the orders of all the other tables so we could not get his attention . The food was fabulous.
