Kahootz- Casual atmosphere and very good food

We had excellent reasonably priced Rib Eye and New York Steaks which were served with nicely cooked vegetables and potatoes as well as tasty Baked Halibut served with rice .

Stopped by here at the recommendation of one of my business associates, as his office is nearby. Had kinda low expectations, but woah, I was wrong. This place was excellent. We all tried something different, Fish Taco's (Me), Top Sirloin, bacon Cheeseburger, shredded pork chipotle sandwich, salad's, starter soup (Vegetable Beef)... Everything was really good, cooked perfectly, great portion sizes,... More

Great prime rib. Fair prices and overall great quality! One of the better restaurants in Meridian. Never had a bad experience either with food or service. And great beer selections!

Kahootz is a small pub type atmosphere with one of the largest beer selections on tap that I have seen. My husband had the burger and said it was good, I had the best French Dip I have ever had....and I have had many. Service was very good and the staff is helpful. We thought the prices were great.

We were looking for a restaurant that we hadn't tried and I discovered Kahootz through the reviews in TripAdvisor. We arrived early, as the previous reviews had recommended, and were glad we did as it is a small restaurant and it fills very early. My wife ordered the beef dip sandwich and I ordered the special, which was corned beef... More

Never had a bad meal at Kahootz. Sirloin is top notch, asparagus are best around and wings are outstanding. If you're a wing fan, the Pterodactyl are quality although they used to be even better when they were BBQ versus just the basic hot sauce but still good. Just be sure to get there early as place fills up quick.... More

Not a drinker, so we go for the food - haven't been disappointed yet. I've had their filet mignon, which was done to perfection, and have also had their French Dip and their Chicken Salad. Very fresh food, and not what you'd expect from a bar - wayyy more high-end! Friendly staff. Go early for less wait time!

We have stopped in lots of time, whether for the large draft beer selection, prime rib on Friday or Saturday, or an incredible grinder for lunch. My wife likes the pasta dishes and the pork and steak specials are always worth trying. Unfortunately, the word is out, so expect a wait around meal times especially on the week-ends, but the...
