At the Floating Patio, you never have to leave the water. As the name implies, the restaurant floats, providing views of Lake Pend Oreille as you sway to the gentle wake of incoming boats along Bayview's waterfront. Owners Teresa and Chan Karupiah recently reopened both the Floating Patio and the nearby Buttonhook Inn after a brief hiatus and shift in management.

Go for the patio or duck inside to watch the sunset, catch a game on television or hunker down with a burger — they use seasoned, grass-fed beef — and expertly crispy fries ($13). Try fish tacos marinated in cilantro and lime, or fish and chips with housemade tartar and tangy slaw featuring cabbage, sweet red pepper and mango chutney ($13).

Domestic bottled beer is a near-unheard-of $3, well drinks are $4, or try the Summer Smash ($8) — rum, triple sec, pineapple and orange juice, 7 Up and grenadine — to feel like you're floating even on land.

Floating Patio, 34128 N. Lakeside Ave., Bayview, Idaho, 208-902-3221
