Great all around

Was an easy call as it had a great selection of craft beer and great menu. Beer & wine on tap & full bar. If your looking for light beers - keep walking as you won't find any here. Seated at the bar and service was prompt and very attentive. Dining area had a mix of tables, booths & high... read more

Had been here a couple years ago and was not impressed, but figured since we were downtown and hungry, we would stop in and give it another try. It was crowded, but our server was quick and friendly. Great selection of beers to choose from, and the menu is fabulous! Enjoyed dinner and a couple of beers that I had... More

My wife & I had lunch here on St. Patrick's day- and of course, the waitress was this cute, petite redhead Irish lady with excellent attitude and dining tips. She recommended the Grilled Kale Salad for my wife as an accompaniment to her Salmon. Perfect choice, delicious and healthy too. I had the Reuben sandwich with fries, a little less... More

My son and I ate here. He had the lamb burger, I had the standard burger. Both were excellent. Love the atmosphere, great industrial type lighting throughout. Lots of variety on menu and oh yes the beer was stellar!

Went for dinner, delicious salad. No gluten free menu, but options. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We brought our newborn in, seemed okay, but limited on high chairs which seemed strange.

We have been regular customers of Bittercreek since it first opened. Over the years it has never lost its appeal, and is one of the places we always take our visitors and friends. Located in the heart of downtown Boise, the building has a lot of charm and atmosphere. Recently redecorated, it still maintains the same ambience. Food is delicious... More

The food is amazing, the service is friendly, atmosphere is great. Most importantly their food products are all from local farmers/food growers and they compost kitchen scraps in their basement. Healthy, delicious food and earth friendly.

Absolutely enjoy every dish we have tried here, in my opinion you just can't go wrong. Can be a bit noisy inside, but the food surely makes up for it.

Great atmosphere! High ceilinged with grey ventilation pipes near the wood beamed top. Mixture of comfortable wooden bar chairs, leather topped bar chairs, and booth seating around medium wood tables. Brass fixtures and subdued lighting. Gorgeous glass front bar area with what looked like a black panther above the bottles of liquor. 3 large flat screens mounted high on the... More
