Our Story


Our Name

The original idea for what is now the city of Twin Falls came from a visionary pioneer and farmer named Ira Burton Perrine in 1900. But his dream may have never been realized without the belief and backing of another visionary, a man named Stanley Milner, who financed the construction of the Milner Dam, as well as most of the complex system of irrigation gates and canals associated with the project. Completed in 1905, the Milner Dam and Twin Falls canal system was considered worldwide as one of the great engineering marvels of the age, and it is what ultimately enabled this high-and-dry desert country we live in to bloom into what is now aptly known as ‘The Magic Valley’, one of the greatest agricultural areas of the Northwest.

Our Location

We are blessed to be part of the progressive movement in our historical downtown. Known to many as the Elk’s Lodge, the Public Library, and most recently the Historical Ballroom, we are located on the ground floor and basement of the recently preserved building on the corner of Shoshone and Second, right in the heart of downtown Twin Falls. Since we are in the heart of downtown, we are easy to get to by car or foot. There is plenty of parking available on the street or in the surrounding parking lots!

Our Menu

We envision Milner’s Gate as the kind of place where casual dining and fine dining can coexist together — and our menu reflects that vision.

The carefully chosen menu is designed to appeal to a wide range of customers and situations, from more formal occasions to quick after-work drinks. Our American Bistro and Pub Fare dishes are elevated with high-quality ingredients to create a menu that is approachable and familiar, while still feeling upscale!

Great stop in Twin Falls!

"Milner’s Gate blew our minds! Beautiful building, beautiful interior, very clean bathrooms, friendly staff. I had the Ultimate Summer Salad (no strawberries), sincerely the best salad I’ve had since we left home 2.5 weeks ago. SO GOOD. My husband and kids had burgers, they were equally as pleased. Alayna (unsure of the spelling) was a really wonderful waitress, she was on top of it and really made the experience that much better."

Worth the visit!

"After five full days on the road we happened across this so very hospitable brewery with a menu to die for. The ribs were explosive good. Who would have thunk it coming from San Francisco after approximately 1500 miles we would find a spot that would cap off our vacation with a bang. Keep doing what you’re doing boss. And give the staff a pat on the back, I’ll handle the tip for sure they are deserving. God Bless American made brew houses like this."

One of the best meals I’ve had!

"One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. I cannot understate how amazing this meal was. We ordered and split the Tuscan Chicken Sandwich and Ultimate Prime Rib sandwich. Both were out of this world when it came to flavor. Everything from the meat, to the veggies, cheese, and bread was perfect on both sandwiches. Even the shoestring fries were somehow better than normal. You absolutely NEED to stop here for lunch or dinner. "

5 stars all across the board!

"Every time I visit, I leave more and more impressed. The hostesses, servers, bartender, and owner are the most genuinely kind and attentive people. I never have to wait long for food. This place is always packed but I have NEVER waited long periods of time for food. Our appetizers were out in less than 5 minutes. Our server BK was so knowledgeable about all the food & drinks. I was so impressed. Thank you again!!"

    Our Brewery

    We have designed a 10-barrel brewing facility that is world-class in it's visual appeal. The large stainless steel and copper tanks are positioned on the basement floor and they extend up through a cut-out in the main floor area. These tanks provide a one-of-a-kind view of the brewery while also creating a unique mode of separation between the lounge and dining areas. We have a full liquor license and plenty of craft beers to enjoy!
