Great local choice

Good, creative menu items. The mixed drinks are good. I wish that they had more gluten-free options on the menu.

We came into town to attend a concert, and this place was recommended via Google for grass fed beef. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious. Our party ordered the Lounge Burger, the Rosemary Seared Natural Idaho Trout, and the Red Feather Salad with Chicken, and a side of their hand cut Idaho fries with homemade ketchup. The grass...

This is one of our favorite places in Boise - all around great food, drinks and atmosphere! It's a wonderful place to sit outside when the weather is warm and enjoy drinks and appetizers while watching all the buzzy activity of downtown Boise. I literally haven't had a bad thing from their menu, but particularly good choices are the cheese... More

We love stopping in for a drink and bacon popcorn when we are downtown. It's a great place for pre dinner drinks. During the day we can even bring our 2 year old and enjoy ourselves.

Came for lunch. Great food with a pretty eclectic selection from burgers to fish and chips to poutine and Kentucky Hot Brown. Couldn't attest to the authenticity, but the Kentucky Hot Brown was delicious. I perused the beer menu and was very impressed had some nice beers in each style and was wishing that I could have partook. Had a... More

We were here for lunch. They have a nice selection of sandwiches and outdoor seating. Everything our group ordered was very good. We had the Beingnets with warm butterscotch sauce that were to die for!!

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
