Dining in Lewiston is generally a very casual experience. There are a few fine dining restaurants but casual dress is still welcome. Reservations are rarely necessary at most of the area restaurants. The Lewis Clark valley is famous for its bite-size steak, which usually comes breaded and fried, grilled or broiled in small, tasty pieces you can pop in your mouth.

Onsite, the Red Lion Hotel Lewiston provides plenty of ways to please your palate with three-meals-a-day restaurant dining at Meriwether's American Grill, plus our award-winning microbrewery and relaxing lounge.

MJB's is the Largest Sports Bar in the valley, with 9 flat screens including a 120" projection screen! While the Exchange Lounge offers the perfect spot for a quiet conversation while enjoying fine wine, microbrews,martinis, spirits and premium restaurant food service.
