Ernie's Steakhouse opens in Lewiston

LEWISTON, ID - After almost a year of re-building...a local restaurant is open and ready for business.

Ernie's Steakhouse in Grangeville was a complete loss after a fire tore through the building, however owner Becky Robinson didn't want that to be the end of a restaurant named after her father. Robinson has remodeled the old Timber Creek Buffet and now it's open for business.

"It's a really different type of cooking I do, its over wood," said Robinson. "There's everything you need right here. I'm enjoying the people and I think with everybody's continued support we will be a real success here."

Right now the restaurant is just open for dinner, but they're planning to expand their hours as more wait staff gets trained. The restaurant opens at 4:00 p.m. daily.
