A Guide to Caldwell, Idaho's local dining scene.

Home to the College of Idaho, Caldwell is a great choice for a vibrant bar scene and restaurants that are sure to fill you up. Thanks to the Gold Rush, the town has had a steadily growing population since the late 1800s. It’s also subject to a revitalization effort around its Indian Creek.

Orphan Annie’s

801 Everett St
Caldwell, ID 83605

With some of the warmest and most helpful waitstaff in Idaho, Orphan Annie’s is where you go to feel a part of family over a great meal. While it’s pretty quiet on most nights, they do host live music acts from time to time. The prime rib with a baked potato is ethereally moist. The Chinese dishes, like the Mafa Chiken and Chinese noodles offer some variety to what is otherwise a classical American diner. They also have a full bar, so get ready to cozy up over some great food and excellent drinks.


322 S Kimball Ave
Caldwell, ID 83605

Specializing in Mexican fare, you won’t find much better than Janitzio for some spicy food in a great atmosphere. While they are great with lunch specials, most running about $5-$10, if there’s one thing Janitzio’s knows how to do right, it’s spicy. So be careful when ordering the spicy salsa for an appetizers. And be real careful when ordering it extra spicy. The ambiance here is pretty casual, so don’t feel embarrassed to pig out.

Golden Palace

703 Main St
Caldwell, ID 83605

As the old saying goes, never judge a book by its cover, and this couldn’t be more true with the Golden Palace. You’d hardly tell from the outside, but the ambiance here is great. It’s very casual, and the waiters are incredibly friendly. For the food, their Egg Fu Yung is amazing. It’s the Chinese interpretation of an omelette, although you’d hardly want it for breakfast. The portion size of this dish is huge, so prepare for a little sluggishness on the walk out.

Hamburger Connection

423 S 10th Ave
Caldwell, ID 83605

This restaurant is what Steak ’N’ Shake wishes they could be. Their Mile High Milkshakes are to die for: between the apple pie milkshake and the banana milkshake, you won’t feel a bit of guilt slurping one down. Another crowd favorite here is the fry sauce, although your guess is as good as mine as far as what’s in it. They definitely keep a tight lid on their recipe. The ambience is what one could expect from a burger joint — great service, a very unique decor and definitely informal.
