The Cedars Floating Restaurant on Lake Coeur d' Alene a well-knwon place to dine on the lake. It features fresh fish available daily and Midwest Stockyards High-Choice Beef. "The Cedars, founded in 1965, floats at the confluence of Lake Coeur d'Alene and the Spokane River and is renown for providing quality food and service. Buoyed by 600,000 pounds of concrete encased styrofoam,The Cedars is the perfect setting to take in breathtaking views of Lake Coeur d'Alene and Northwest delicacies such as Cedar Plank Salmon and a Biergarten Filet."

"Concrete encased Syrofoam"-you really need to get the sums right if you aren't gonna end up with a submarine restaurant

Chris is right . . and it is vital not to get Syrofoam mixed up with Styrofoam, too. One of them is highly explosive and I cannot remember which ! Could be a night to remember.

Really interesting -- concrete covered foam. Makes me nervous, like the concrete sailboats do. Psycological I know. This looks like a wonderful place to dine. I have visited the area and found it just exquisite -- less rugged and more accomodating than Montana.

Not only does it look good, but it sounds good. A nice idea for fresh fish dining!

A place certainly very pleasant to have lunch at the water's edge when the good weather is there.

Nice looking place, and the menu sounds delicious. I envy your water-top point of view, assuming you were enjoyinf a boat ride.

A perfect location and setting to dine, I don't like the idea of floating, I get seasick in the bath :0
