UPDATE — Crickets Restaurant & Oyster Bar 

The Sherman Avenue fixture hasn't slowed down

Before there was an Applebee’s or Denny’s — family-friendly places offering a bit of this and that — Coeur d’Alene had Crickets. Steaks, salads, pasta, burgers, seafood, sandwiches, appetizers and anything else you’d want. Something for everyone, seven days a week, lunch through late night, with full bar (best Bloody Marys in town) and four distinct dining areas: the main restaurant, a front and back patio and lounge area.

But if that was all, Crickets wouldn’t have been around since 1985 as a Sherman Avenue fixture. The economic roller coaster, a 2011 change of ownership and even recent road closures for nearby McEuen Park construction hasn’t slowed it down. It’s still a great place to take the family, relax after ArtWalk or meet the gang for red beer and crispy calamari, pizza or its trademark oysters, which are always fresh.

Look for weekly specials and a new menu rolling out this month. Or stop by on Wednesday nights for an acoustic open jam session from 6 to 9 pm, and dig the scene that’s been a big part of downtown Coeur d’Alene for nearly 30 years.
