The BEST value breakfast in Kootenai County. No one else can make an omelette taste soooo good. But be prepared to take more than half home as the portions are huge. The staff give great service and wonderful hugs. It's a bit off the beaten bath near North Idaho college.
Great place for breakfast – We had my parents in town from Colorado and we decided to try out the Fort Ground Grill for breakfast. We had done some research before and read the previous reviews of this restaurant. We have 3 little boys and 1 on the way so we are on the go all the time. We arrived there and was seated immediately and then we met Diane the waitress. She was personable and answered all of our questions. We ordered 2 kids meals (the 1 egg omelet is huge!) I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak, my parents the ham and eggs, and my wife did the same. Our children received coloring pages and crayons and that kept them busy until our food arrived. All I can say is the portions are HUGE! We truly needed another table to seat the 7 of us, and somewhere to put our extra plates. The interior decorating was unique and tastefully done, as well as spotless bathrooms. We will definitely go there again, but maybe for Dinner next time.
Want to be treated right? Don't go here. – Being that it was my first time there with my family, my In-Law's asked if they served minors, and the Waiter scoffed and in a low tone said: "Yeah, for food." The place looked like a bar from the outside with all it's neon lighting and exterior of the building. I am currently 20 and my daughter who was 15 MO's at the time we're the under age participants.
All the employee's seemed like they had a problem with serving you or taking an order for you, they even hit my daughter in the head with a child's menu. They also promised to bring her a tiny box of crayons and a coloring paper, but never followed through with this. And to throw it out there, it was not even busy.
My wife had French Onion soup that looked like it had sat in a pot for hours, and my Spicy Burger was in no way spicy. My daughter's grilled cheese sandwich was dry and all she ate we're the fries and some dill pickles along with onions....off my Father in law's burger.
At one point the employee's we're just walking around in the back talking and drinking Rockstar Energy drinks and about 30 minutes later out came our food.
They said they would make coffee, which they did...but it took them 15 minutes to bring out two cups of coffee and when asked initially if they could brew it, they turned their backs not saying a word.
The TV in the family lounge area had bad reception, the TV kept turning purple and green and going back to the Mariner's game that was on at the time.
And a place that serves food to customers should keep the area at a comfortable heat, this place was just hot as hell, but of course the bar was AC'd.
If you want good food, service, and a comfortable atmosphere, please visit the Blue Plate Cafe in Hayden Lake near the golf course.
Fort Ground failed, and I will never return.
Great service and food. – It's a little pub, which has been here for years and was recently remodeled, very nice. The service was great, the waitress actually knew what kind of beer was on tap, and was able to recommend one. What a novel idea! We were a group of 4, everyone had something different and were all impressed, all agreed this is definitely a place to return to. I had the fish and chips, they were very lightly battered, tasted great.
