The building became known as the Drift Inn in 1963 when Thelma Ennis introduced her finger steaks, which quickly became a local favorite. The Drift was operated by relatives of the Ennis family for 41 years until it was purchased by Charlie & Lori Creason in 2004.
Henry's at the Drift Inn is named in honor of Henry Vernon Creason, a prominent local attorney who began practicing law in Rupert in 1919 from his office in the second story of the building. H.V. or "Hank" as he was fondly called, served as Minidoka County Prosecutor, Rupert City councilman, and held many other civic and community jobs. Known for years as "Chuck Wagon Hank" at the 4th of July Jamboree. Henry was fond of telling his dinner hosts "...this was best meal I ever had."
We hope you feel the same.
