Since 1975, the Hydra Steakhouse has become a tradition for 3 generations of local families. Famous for the best steak & seafood for over 45 years, return guests are amazed to come back to consistent quality service and chef inspired cuisine. We are true believers in quality fresh ingredients and make everything with love from scratch. “You’ll find no shortcuts here” says Chef/Owner Mike Armstrong. We are family owned & operated.  With “big city” talent, Mike hails from both sides of the continent. Our menu reflects his expertise from Maryland crab cakes and #1 peel ‘n eat shrimp, to Seattle’s #1 Steakhouse, where he won awards for his clam chowder, oysters, wild catch fire grilled salmon, and half pound sirloin burgers.

Beautiful Lake Pend Oreille in Sandpoint, Idaho.
Specially seasoned, in-house aged, hand-carved, fire-grilled steaks.

Long ago, the restaurant was a 2 story home. Simple demand from increasing return guests required addition after addition, similar to a “Hydra”, the Greek mythological creature that continued to grow, and GROW. Now at a 200 seat capacity, you would never believe that all the hustle and bustle of a ‘full house’ would be so cozy. With private booths, giant lounge and outdoor patio, our expert servers make you feel like your party is the only one here.

The Hydra is Sandpoint’s most popular dining establishment, with unique and casual surroundings, complemented with beautiful cut glass works and wildlife prints by local artists. Experience The Hydra Steakhouse! You’re sure to be delighted. Just ask someone from Sandpoint, Idaho!
