I used to love this place. It was my go to for good food. They remodeled not too long ago, but the food is still overpriced for what you get. The menu is a little limited for the what they claim to be. Last time I was there I bought poutine, and it was all fries and bland gravy, with... More

This is a bew pub but with an extensive selection of locally made ales and beers for tasting, plus a nice selection of meals. I had a lamb dish that was well done, not "gamy" tasting at all, and served with some excellent sides. Sat on the outdoor sidewalk and enjoyed people watching while I sipped the brews. Very pleasant... More

My husband and I took a guest from out of town for dinner. We were told to seat ourselves, and didn't have to wait too long for a server. The speed of service went downhill quickly from there. Waited almost 10 minutes for drinks (2 beers and a lemonade) and it was a different server who brought those out to... More

Had a sandwich and cup of soup for a quick lunch, the potato chowder was the best i have ever had, Packed with potato, corn and carrots and the broth wasnt thick like some chowders can be. The waitress was fantastic. Great place and would recommend it to beer drinkers as well as the beers available were impressive.

We always get great food, service and drinks. Not a place to take kids but great with friends and date night. Usually very busy, so go when you have time to have some drinks and enjoy!

This is a bar/pub type of restaurant, but I am always impressed that they are attentive to the quality of their food as much as the beer they serve. Their putine is amazing, but my favorite is always the fish and chips. Definitely the best in Boise with the most tasty and crunchy breading. I've never been disappointed with anything... More

We had friends in town and the Organic non-GMO food and the service was so good that they insisted we go back three times. On Saturday morning, the breakfast pizza was to die for. The burger,the fish and chips, the lamb burger, and the salads were all delicious. In the evening we enjoyed the Halibut and Steak. All was perfectly... More

This was a great place to spend a warm summer evening with friends. The food was delicious - I live in the Pacific Northwest, and the salmon I got here was some of the best I've ever eaten, the duck poutine was original and finger-lickin' good, and the craft beer recommended by our server was excellent. Our server was friendly... More

Sorry, but this will be a bit long-winded. Used to go here with large groups about 3-4 times a year (when visiting from Denver). I moved to Boise in '03 and upped my visits to 6-8 times a year. One night in '05(?) I was there with a group of 6-7 people. My GF ordered an Apple-tini, took one sip... More
