Had lunch. One of us ordered the fish tacos and I ordered the pesto chicken sandwich. My sandwich was outstanding. Had handcuffs fries on the side which were great. Beer selection is top notch with plenty of local and regional brews. Restaurant does a lot of local and organic sourcing and even composts in their basement which we learned from... More

This place is top-notch. You can tell alot of effort is put into the food. The meat in the burgers is among the most high quality I have ever had. Breads, cheeses, sauces...all are outstanding. Great atmosphere, solid service and good value for the quality of food. Highly recommended!

The meat here is amazing - house ground beef and flavorful. Salad greens were fresh. My hot toddy was perfect and my husband liked the beer selection. Our server was helpful and friendly. However..... I almost gave this place three stars because one of the reasons we chose it is that they had listed themselves as a gluten free option... More

I had the poutine while we watched the football game. The ambiance was fun, sporty and urban. It was lunchtime on a Sunday and we went with two teenage children who also had a great time.

As a French tourist travelling across the country, I was mostly disappointed by the food in the West, but this restaurant was a delicious surprise. The popcorn/bacon/parmesan was an original and nice starter, and I really loved the polenta fries served with the clubs. Nice choice of beers as well.

Stopped for a late lunch with my sons. We all had different sandwiches and beer. All were very good. They have an extensive selection of both. This is a good downtown restaurant.

Went for a late Friday lunch. Sat at the bar and split the Poutine which featured locally sourced cheese curds and braised pork. The portion was big enough to call it lunch, as we had dinner plans. Appreciated their "locally sourced" food and beer philosophy. They offer a great selection of local and fairly local brews as well as a... More

When my wife and I moved to Boise last fall my son took us to his favorite restaurant Bittercreek. We started off with the mussels and kept going through the menu. Everything was great and the service was exceptional. We have been back many times both with my son and on our own. When we have out of town guests... More

I went in there with three others. We actually planned a trip here based on good reviews we had read. I was pretty disappointed. Food was average. Portions small. Beer selection was OK. But the beer was warm. They also have a very poor selection of lager and pilsner style beers. And some of what they sell as lager, isn't... More
