Sadly, the Falcon newly renamed "Red Headed Finn" has closed. Things got a little weird there after the new owner took over. But the food stayed the same, which was definitely the reason to go there anyhow. I wonder where their kitchen staff ended up,...More

The Red Headed Finn (formerly The Falcon Tavern) hits it out of the park! For lunch downtown, it is a must go. From burgers to fries, salads and classic sandwiches, and (my favorite) pita wraps, all food is prepared fresh and full of flavor. They...More

Husband had the the shrimp po boy and I had the mediterrean rollup. We also had the calamari appetizer and a peanut butter cheesecake. Everything was enjoyable. Server was efficient. We we not treated shabbily as other reviewers experienced. Decent variety of beer on tap.

There is a nice menu selection at reasonable prices. Never taken anyone there who was disappointed. Service is always great. Quarters are a bit cramped during busy times.

Falcon has gone through it's up and down times, but the fact that you can't even find a seat at lunch on a warm day...says a lot about this humble little pub on Bannock. Whenever the foodie friends of mine come to town, we always...More

Our menus were thrown on table as the server walked by, we waited 20 mins for the server to finally return to take our orders after passing us several times. We had to ask for drinks and silverware when the server had dissapeared yet again...More

Waitress gave us menus and took our drink order. Then she forgot about us. She made three trips to the patio where we were seated and did not bring our drinks. We went elsewhere to eat.

Since opening in the summer of 2004 The Falcon Tavern has become known as Boise's Downtown Neighborhood Pub. Specializing in what we describe as "upscale pub fair", this tavern is built on delicious everyday cuisine. Our menu includes a generous selection of Certified Angus Beef burgers, pita wraps, chicken sandwiches, paninis, appetizers, soups and salads. We're also known for our love of all things beer and wine. With 13 draft beers and 10 wines pours there's sure to be something to please everyone. Located across from Idaho's Capitol building at 705 W. Bannock St, this cozy tavern is a favorite for a quick bite at lunch, an afternoon pint of beer or glass of wine, or a place to just relax and enjoy the evening. The Falcon is non-smoking, open to all ages, sports fan friendly and offers Happy Hour everyday from 4:00-6:00pm. If you're someone who expects great food, beer, wine, and customer service then this is The Tavern for you. Cheers...
