Let the excitement and mystique of the roaring whitewater falls on the Snake River follow you across the street to the Republic American Grill & Tapas Bar. From the moment you enter the door you are surrounded by abstract images of the whitewater spectacle still visible behind you and an array of local art that together with a warm welcome from the friendly staff sends the distinct message........................"it's different here"!
Tapas selections are "all about sharing"! It's the experience of delightful food selections, fine wine, micro brew or the non-alcoholic beverage of your choice and sharing with friends. While Tapas servings are a Spanish tradition meaning "to cover" or "top", this worldly twist will leave you emotionally poised somewhere between the Tetons and the Himalayas yet still on the banks of the roaring Snake River Falls thinking "it just doesn’t get any better than this".
While the selection, flavor and preparation may be worldly, the ingredients at the Republic are local. Chef Joel proudly creates his menu items fresh from scratch & the Republic American Grill sources local Idaho products where possible.
Our mission is to serve fresh from scratch cuisine and unique small plates with world class preparation and service, on the falls!
Just Listen to what people are saying.
"Best food in Idaho Falls at a great price! New restaurant, new owners, AMAZING food. The new chef is incredible and has crafted a great experience. If Tapas aren't your thing (they are delicious!), they have a full "normal" menu. I have eaten here three times and the food is consistently outstanding!!"
We'll see you there!
