About the restaurant
CK’s our family owned business believes our business should be part of the solution and not part of the problem. We serve globally inspired food with an emphasis on seasonal and local ingredients. We recycle everything we can: metals, glass, paper and cardboard. Our used cooking oil goes to the local science teacher for his bio-fuel car. The vegetable scraps become compost for our garden. 15% of our energy is produced by our rooftop solar panels and solar hot water is on the way soon. Many of us commute to work on foot or by bike. Our food comes from several local farms and ranches and we purify our drinking water. Our goal is fresh healthy food that will feed your body and your soul.

CK’s has been a standout in the Sun Valley area for many years. It is always good. You must sit out on the patio as it is fabulous. We had almost everything on the menu last time and shared! The appetizers are great, the mains are great and the desserts are fabulous. The wine list is very good too.

We had a reservation and were seated by a window (inside). Waiter came quickly to take our order and drinks were next. Meal was a bit slower but more people were also ordering by then. Food is excellent and “right” size for lunch; very fresh. Enjoyed the creative mixing of flavors. We’ll go again.

My wife and I visited this little gem for dinner. Loved the restaurant. The ambience was nice. The food and wine were great! We started off with the tomato and mozzarella bruschetta topped with fresh basil and balsamic vinaigrette. Soups- my wife had the Boston Clam Chowder, and I had the French Onion. So far, the beginning courses have been wonderful! The entrees didn’t disappoint. My wife had the Norwegian King Salmon with herb and lemon sauce, roasted potatoes, and fresh asparagus. I went with the Bison Flat Iron that came with gorgonzola mashed potatoes and fresh broccoli. Thank you Miss Martin for being a great server! Thank you Mike (owner) for the story of the place.

Great meal as usual. The chef, Gary, is phenomenal and never disappoints. Wouldn’t go to any other place in McCall, I’ve tried and it’s just not worth it.

Travel back in time with the nightly “Heritage Menu”—a series of historic dishes such as pork tenderloin schnitzel, Hungarian goulash, and the famous Ram fondue—resurrected from the restaurant’s long and storied culinary tradition.

My husband and I celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary at 3 Horse Ranch Winery. We enjoyed the food, it was all delicious. We love 3 Horse wine and enjoyed the bottle we chose to accompany our dinner. Our server, Chelsea was exceptional, frinedly and very attentive. There was a table of eight young women who were celbrating a birthday. Chelsea checked with us to make sure the noise wasn't bothering us. We were fine with it because it was obvious they were great friends and enjoyed each others company. Because we were there for our anniversary celebration, they offered us our choice of a dessert to share. It was a very large piece of Key Lime Pie that was perfect. It is made on site and I would love to have the recipe. We will be back and will try lunch next time. Lovely place to enjoy the food and of couree the wine!

We went there for an early BD dinner. Noted same when we made the reservation but don’t believe they paid attention to that and also gave us setup for 3 but reset was for 2. Have to wonder if they even look at those things. However, the sushi was fresh and my wife enjoyed same, the orange chicken was likewise prepared well and was tasty. We started with lettuce wraps which were equally done well and fresh. Our server was Josh, very attentive and on the spot. We sat Outside enjoying the river view. Other than what was mentioned initially above ( which is not that big of a deal) we had a nice time.
