Another Reason to Move to Boise!

On our way up to Leavenworth, WA we stopped in Boise to take in an Idaho Steelhead's hockey game. Having never been to this city before it was a random stoke of luck that the Bittercreek Alehouse was our choice for a quick bite to eat that evening before the game.

Each time we go to Bittercreek we leave very satisfied. We have yet to be disappointed. It's all good, the food, the beer, the atmosphere and especially the staff. We like to eat while sitting at the bar and have found the bar tenders to be very pleasant and engaging. Bittercreek continues to be our favorite pub in Boise.

This restaurant/pub is not #21: It is at the top in Boise for casual dining, and without a doubt for beer selection. The menu is small, but what is delivered is organic, real and consistent. You won't go wrong with any item on the menu, and always order the Kale ceaser salad. I have been in my share of pubs... More

If you are looking for a great selection of beers in downtown Boise, then this is the place. It is centrally located and they have a phenomenal selection of beers on tap, and the staff are highly knowledgeable on each of the selections. This place has a lot of regulars, and it is no wonder. The food is good, but... More

My husband and I visited Boise for the first time. We came across Bittercreek. We were expecting a typical brew pub, but had a great surprise. The variety of drink options were great! The food was good. Loved the seasoned popcorn. My only criticism is lighting. I felt it was just too dark. The server was exceptionally polite and helpful.... More

This is a pretty standard stop for anyone in downtown Boise. With a wide variety of ales and micro brews and an extensive menu, you really can't go wrong. The service is pretty good overall, but we are never particularly focused on that when we go in to eat. There are plenty of options for someone with $20 to get... More

Overall an excellent experience. Very good selection of beer (mostly from the northwest), great service, very friendly and knowledgeable staff and the food was better than most pubs. They try hard to make everything from fresh ingredients. I especially like their fish and chips.

Centrally located downtown. Menu is comprised of all locally sourced foods, citing and thanking their suppliers. Good selection of local wine and beer as well as imports. Reasonably priced. Nice soup, salad, bread combo for under $8. Beautiful heritage building.

I travel to Boise many times each year for business, and I always end up here at the Bittercreek Alehouse at least once. It is a great pub located in the middle of downtown, within walking distance of several hotels and other restaurants. I always come here because they have such an amazing beer selection. Usually around 20-30 beers on... More
