Very Nice Downtown Restaurant

Loved the atmosphere and the patio seating as it was a nice night. Food was creative - we had duck fries. Can't say I loved them but they had many other options as well, which is good. BLT was very small, good, but very small which was a little disappointing. Overall great place though.

We ate lunch here after landing in Boise. The beer and cider list is excellent, both draft and bottles, with good information about the various options (mead!). Service was knowledgeable and helpful in navigating the lists. My wife had a burger, and it was excellent, with great meat,as you would hope to find here. I had very good pork tacos... More

While the beer selection was good, I felt the food stole the show. I have had a few things and all were great. From the sandwiches to the entrees, there is something for everyone. The beer available covers all possible beer palates and the bartenders/servers were more than willing to listen to what I wanted and found something great for... More

Great beer selection. Nice atmosphere. The Duck Poutine is great! Its like a Thanksgiving appetizer. Maybe its not what you think you want on a hot summer night, but believe me, it is. Tacos were fantastic. I enjoyed the flight of beers.

What a difference a server makes. Our guy was chatty, friendly and efficient. The burgers were way above average, and the outdoor patio is great when it's not raining (we got caught in a downpour). A good wine list for a sport's bar, we'll be back.

I have been here a couple of times, once to watch a football game, and just recently I ate here with a colleague and we sat outside on the front deck which was nice. We both had veggie burgers (there weren't a lot of selections for vegetarians, and my colleague being vegan had even more trouble, but the veggie burger... More

It was busy with lots of people eating and drinking so it must be good. Seemed like many were locals. We were visiting on business and just went in for a beer.

My niece got married on Friday night and since both sides of the family were leaving Boise by Sunday we wanted to have one last meal with both sides of the family. The restaurant is located about 2 blocks from the State Capitol. There was 16 of us and we were all able to be together using 2 large tables.... More

I found the menu selections lacking. I was not impressed with the food I ordered. The chicken had a weird marinade flavor that I wasn't expecting. Service was good.

Love the beer selection. So many to choose from including great local options. Food options were plentiful. Definitely a great place to share. Outside patio was cute and the inside opened out to allow a feeling of patio seating to permeate the front. Would definitely recommend. PS. The fries were AWESOME.
