We got into town a bit late and were very hungry (and thirsty) and my daughter suggested the Bittercreek Alehouse. We walked there from our hotel and grabbed a table. Place was busy but that is always a good sign. We ordered food and all got brews from their extensive variety. Everything was fantastic, service was great, food was delicious,... More

Went here for lunch with a friend on a Sunday. Food was good, but slightly overpriced. I had the street tacos, which at about $9 were very tasty but not filling. Didn't love our waitress, she almost seemed bothered to be there. But otherwise it looks like it could be a nice place to grab dinner and drinks at night.... More

I have always enjoyed a variety of menu items on Bittercreeks menu but found this latest visit disappointing. This was my first visit after the remodle and found the food to be below the standard they had served prior. I had the standard fries with cheese and gravy (poutine) they were presented as a gelatinous mass, somewhat cold with very... More

We shared the Lamb meatballs, basil pizza, and I had the roasted kale salad. All were great. I also ordered the Bootlegger cocktail and the giant square ice cube kept... More

Stopped by for drinks and snacks before dinner; fun atmosphere, unique cocktails and friendly staff make this a great spot to try. Our drinks were delicious and the snacks were perfect, we almost stayed for dinner but the bartender recommended a restaurant to try. We took his advice but will be back to Red Feather next time!

We took out of town guest for dinner and found the menu had a few changes since we last visited! The Poutine, which must have been inspired in a Sunday morning fog! It is french fries, smoother in cheese, turkey confit, turkey gravy, Ballard curd and bacon and egg! Seems it would be a great morning after food, our quest... More

Took 2 friends from out of town here for dinner in April of 2013. We ended up waiting over an hour for our food to arrive, and when it did, it was so cold and so disgusting it was inedible. To make matters worse, they got our order wrong. We sent the food back in hopes they'd get it right... More

Patio dining at Bittercreek is one of my favorite things to do on a hot sultry summer evening while eating there fish & chips, and watching the hip crowds, I usually park by the old Macys Dept. store and walk down. My wife and 7 year old daughter get there mac & cheese with chicken, then we stroll over to... More

We have eaten here several times on our visits to Boise. Good range of beers and good quality reasonably priced food. During our last two summer visits there was live music outside which added to the fun.
