Fine dining is not only about exquisite food preparation but the ambiance of where the food is served. Restaurant Forty-One South hits on all marks with its delicious American cuisine and unmatched views overlooking Lake Pend Oreille. Even on a wintery day, the restaurant invites you in to experience the coziness of its rustic beamed ceilings and real wood-burning fireplaces. The wisteria-draped decks and terraces tucked into the hillside under the pines are the perfect spot to catch a gorgeous sunset.
Live music fills the air on a regular basis, with local talent performing one to two nights a week and more during the summer months.
The addition of Shoga Sushi Bar, located right next door, offers guests a completely different dining option with its own indoor and outdoor dining spaces. The menu offers a fresh variety of nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls as well as plenty of Asian-inspired entrees, such as the chicken teriyaki or beef and broccoli.
Owner Cassandra Cayson and her staff are ready to impress their dining guests from the moment they walk through the door, as they offer not only one, but two unparalleled dining experiences. Who wouldn’t want to stop in this beautiful lakeside retreat after a long day of skiing to cozy up by the fire and enjoy some comfort food? Or take a break during a day of summer boating, pull up to the private docks and enjoy a cocktail on the patio?
Forty-One South and Shoga pride themselves on building relationships with the locals and tourists alike. Both restaurants focus on accommodating each guest’s tastes and preferences above all. Hours do vary by season, so it is recommended to call ahead.
