We just got back from having lunch there! This a great sports pub in a very central downtown location. You are 2 blocks North of the Qwest Arena and the BoDo District. 2 Blocks South of the Capitol, and near a number of bars, The Egyptian Theater.....you get the idea. I had the corn and potato chowder, and The Huntsman... More

Large selection of beer, first choice not available! Limited menu but our choice of burgers proved to be tasty. We eat outside, lots of flies so beware

Overnight stay in Boise and were told plenty of places on 8th St. Wanted something straight forward and easy so tried here and pleased we did. Extensive selection of beers and good food. We had the pizzas which were excellent especially the wild mushroom with whole cloves of sticky roasted garlic.

Initially, this is a little confusing, 2 restaurants using the same kitchen but with different seating areas and different menus. Outside, they have mist blowers to keep you cool. Inside, it is quite dark but there's a good atmosphere. The food is really good and well priced.

We flew into Boise late on a dry warm summer night and a cold beer seemed like just the thing. This place is a couple of blocks from the state capital building in the surprisingly cool downtown area. We sat outside and enjoyed the waitress and the people passing by. The beer was just the thing and they had a... More

Recently in Boise for 5 days and visited Bittercreek every day. Great food, great beer offerings and excellent service. The bar staff is very friendly and very knowledgeable about their menu and drinks. They have some creative drinks and a great wine list, but with 50+ beers with rotating taps, it's good to stop by and sample. Outdoor patio is... More

Bittercreek Alehouse is a hopping place with an excellent collection of beers and liquors. The food was magnificent and the service was on par. The waitress was great with our group and was so helpful at helping us with our drink and fix selections. Definitely a great place to visit.

I came in confused that the seating right next to this place was another restaurant and inadvertently ordered drink which I paid for but moved over here. Misters were provided since it was HOT and much appreciated. My appetizer was the hummus, pita and cucumbers. I really liked it and it was enough to be a meal. My main course... More
