I've made three business trips to Boise this year and I discovered this pub and eatery on the first trip and I've been back on each successive trip. Decor and atmosphere are nice and the place has a good energy. This is not a brew pub, but they have a large selection of microbrews on tap. The beer available changes... More

Travelling with two kids (6-8) who were hungry, we kind of stumbled into this place and were not disappointed. Slim, our waiter, was awesome. The food was awesome and the menu was creative, not just your typical pub food. Po' Boy sandwich was outstanding and the wood fired pizza was perfectly tasty. Four of us dined for $60.

We were traveling through Boise and need some great food and drink - we totally found it here!!! The portions were good for the price. They have an amazing beer and wine list. The beers are from local breweries as well as nearby states!!

You can and will want to take this drink menu home with you because it includes recipes, an alcohol rating (1 to 4 from weak to strong) and the beer menu states the distance to the brewery for those who want to drink as locally as possible. Very inventive!! Of the 4 or 5 vegetarian options, I selected the black... More

Got off to a great start with drinks at the bar and some free samples of hard cider and then champagne because, as the bartender stated, "bubbles are fun". Excellent wings and a great smoked trout salad, but the service, starting at the bar, really stands out. They don't brew their own beer but had so many choices from the... More

We stopped off from a long trip and found this gem that offers organic and made fresh food options. Great service. Ranch dressing tasted home made. The prices were reasonable too.

Marta gave us wonderful service. Was the best pork chop I've ever tasted, succulent and juicy. It went well with the delicious sweet potato hash. The bar had fun and manly enough drinks for my husband. Pumpkin oatmeal cake was original and super nom nom, that made me want to scream for more pumpkin ice scream.

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
