Restaurant: Grill at Knob Hill

Grill @ Knob Hill

960 North Main St.
Ketchum, Idaho
We went to the Grill with Laura and Mike, friends of Debbie who have a home just outside of Ketchum.

The restaurant seats about 200 people in two dining rooms and one outdoor area. The tables are of a variety of sizes and shapes.

For our first courses, Laura and I had the Caesar Salad with homemade croutons & shaved parmesan. Debbie opted for the Summer salad of butter leaf lettuce with red peppers, red onions, candied walnuts, goat cheese, and lemon with Thyme vinaigrette. Mike selected the corn chowder special.

For main courses, Laura picked Idaho Ruby Red Rainbow Trout, grilled with lemon, capers, brown butter & toasted pine nuts. Debbie, who often opts for good beef, chose the Prime Rib (slow roasted, certified Angus beef with pan au jus & horseradish sauce). Mike and I both ordered the Nantucket scallop special.

The service was quite good, except for the beginning of the evening when it was overly attentive. The serving person kept coming by our table to ask if we were ready to order, when we, in fact, were having a get acquainted conversation.

The restrooms were part of the hotel in which the grill is located and quite a distance from the dining rooms.
