The Porch Public House -- The Porch's rustic yet sophisticated log cabin ambience is most inviting and compliments its Hayden Lake neighborhood. The diverse menu resembles that of the Elk in Spokane and is broken down into appetizers, salads, sandwiches and specialties. There is also a fine selection of tap beers, wine and hard liquor. The Pork Burrita's ($8.95) roasted chunks of tender, mildly spicy pork filled a large, crispy flour tortilla that had been folded once and grilled and topped with shredded lettuce, tomato-onion salsa and sour cream. It was huge and came with a generous portion of ranch-style (cooked not refried) black beans. The Salmon Cakes ($9.25) were moist on the inside and crispy outside, topped with a soothing light sour cream/dill sauce and the bacon and smoked cheddar potato cakes were sublime. The service is efficient and accurate and in the summer, that open-air seating on the back porch is the place to hang. 1658 E. Miles Ave., Hayden Lake, ID. Call (208) 772-7711. (MC)





S.S. Beryl -- This place has been around since the late '70s and has built up a devoted regular clientele. The Beryl specializes in seafood but also features pastas with both seafood and chicken, and a selection of various beef dishes. The salmon Oscar ($18) was nicely pan-seared, moist inside with a crispy exterior and topped with a dollop of crabmeat. Hollandaise sauce and asparagus spears completed the presentation. Overall, a pleasant take on a venerable classic. Just like the S.S. Beryl itself. 6404 N. Wall St. Call 467-5490. (LM)
