A local restaurant that does not serve drinks recommended this for quenching our thirst. My wife and I decided to check it out and we were pleasantly surprised. A wide variety of customers of all ages. Lots of fun games to play, pool tables and very reasonable priced drinks. A great atmosphere to hang and relax.

Food at this bar/restaurant is delicious. All of the servers make my wife and I feel most welcome. And Janet herself was present sitting down with us and welcoming us to her restaurant and to Boise itself, our first visit to this city. We felt 'part of the family.' Can't say enough good about what looks like a hole in the wall at a strip mall. Janet was also offering a free drink to each of us, a passion fruit lime-tasting alcoholic drink on tap. An experience I will not forget!

Jumpin' Janet's is a hidden gem on Vista! Tucked away in a non-descript strip mall you have to kinda look for it but, it's definitely worth it. Inside it has a cozy feel with a fireplace and walls that are filled with nostalgic events and pop culture from years gone by. The food is always on point and Janet has crafted the menu from her own kitchen. Nearly everything is made from scratch and is super tasty and BIG! There are plenty of bar games such as touch tabs, darts, Golden Tee, and pool tables. The drinks are affordable and you can tell the service is something they take pride in!

A college bar. Expensive food that’s marginal. Might be fun with a crowd. Just a little sad now during COVID.

Great beer and drink specials. The food is excellent. I am not a fan of potato salad with my burgers, so I was a bit disappointed. Keep in mind the drinks are strong and the server will keep the full. Really nice pool tables are a big bonus.

Stopped in for dinner. We were immediately struck by the diversity of ages of the patrons, and the friendliness of the staff.

It was trivia night, so it was a bit loud, but people were enthusiastic and we thought that was a good sign.

We ordered off the sandwich menu, and we both chose the same - sort of a Philly with peppers, onions and mushrooms. It was amazing. They brought beef broth to dip it in, but it didn't need it. There was enough there to take home for lunch the next day.

I asked what kind of beer they had, and the list went on an on, so I simply told the server to surprise me.

All on all we were there about 90 minutes or more and had a great meal, a great time, and were even greeted on the way out by other diners.

Friendly place.

Ok maybe I am a little crazy but compared to the Bay Area I found this bar quite unique.

First of all Janet greeted us as we walked in the door. Sit anywhere you like and their was also 6 pool tables plus a bunch of TV’s.

Simone was our waitress and she also was a bundle of energy. Always stopped by to check on us. I mean she was running around waiting on quite a few tables. You would never see this in the Bay Area.

My husband ordered the Goo Burger that was a bacon cheeseburger sandwiched between 2 toasted cheese sandwiches. He scarfed it up. I had the spicy chicken salad which was fresh and good.

I am always amazed at the bar prices in Boise compared to the Bay Area. I mean $3.00 for a glass of wine and 2.75 for a glass of beer, that is ridiculously cheap. Try double that in the Bay Area plus you won’t get the same nice greeting either because their usually looking at their cell phone while their waiting on you.

Found out they have a Sunday Brunch that starts at 10:00 am. We’re definitely headed back for that. 👍👍

We stopped by for a beverage. Nice and cool inside because it was blazing outside. After our first round the wait staff seemed to forget we were there. I hate to give my evil look to get waited on. Won't go back.

Jumpin Janet's is a nice hole in the wall bar. The bar has 4 pool tables and several flat panels spread all over the place. The eats are pretty good while not being over the top. The service is very nice, with awesome smiles to go around.
