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

Walk in to Bittercreek and the first thing you'll notice are the big b/w photos on the wall. These are the actual farmers, ranchers and producers providing the ingredients for the first-class menu. Street tacos and polenta fries? Check. Authentic Poutine and Kale Ceasar salad? Oui. Killer beer and wine selection? Cheers. Vermiculture? Uh, yeah! Bittercreek and its sister restaurant... More

The usual crowded bar on a Friday night, we sat at the bar in the far end, had a beer and some dinner. I was a little suprised at how thoughtful the bartenders and servers were. Dinner was a little slow and we sent back a dish for a reheat but they seemed genuine in caring about it. Were not... More

There's a worm farm underneath the restaurant! Great atmosphere, food and service. Great selection of craft beers on tap. BLT and burgers are delish!

We went here for some drinks. The worst part of this restaurant is they have open seating, so if there isn't a table open you may get anxious trying to get one that opens up. Otherwise it is fabulous. The food is different than other places. So if you like unique food then this is a great option. They have... More

This place is a fixture on the Biise beer scene. They don't brew, but they have a wide selection of beers, and the food is good; I particularly like their bleu cheese burger. The owner, Dave Krick,is very much into sustainable practices (he has worms in the basement). It's very popular, so it's crowded and very noisy. Sit outside if... More

The environment is relaxing and welcoming. Casual inside or outside seating. Our waitress was amazing, she was friendly knowledgable and honest. She said everything on the menu was good and she was not trying to sell it. The food was AMAZING! She knew what kind of beers to recommend to us based on what we told her and she was... More
