I wish we'd had more time in Boise, because I could happily go to Bittercreek Alehouse more than twice! We had a list of brewpubs to try, but Bittercreek was so good that we kept going back. The quality of the food and beer was outstanding, as was the service. Our servers were genuinely interested in our comments about the... More

We've been here 3 or 4 times over the years when in Boise. This stop was another great visit. Our server was attentive without being intrusive. The food was very good and they are always one of the best beer joints in Boise.

After walking around downtown Boise we stopped by for a light lunch and had a great time. My wife ordered the Asian Honey ginger steak Salad and I had a Chicken Cobb Salad. We also split an order of fries (It"s Idaho right). It all was very tasty and they have TVs all around to watch the game. Their meats... More

One of my favorites in the city. Great for a business lunch or a weekend dinner. The service is always consistently above average and the food great. Something on the menu for everyone and a favorite of mine to bring out of guests to. Of course the beer is great, too!

When we first relocated here we visited downtown Boise on a weekly basis for lunch and dinner. I continued my relentless pursuit for the perfect cheese burger and I finally found it. They have an awesome menu and lots of great local and regional micro-brews to choose from. Friendly and energetic staff.

Food selections are fun and exceptionally well done. A serious step above any "alehouse" dining I have ever had. If you are hoping for a quiet little intimate place, you won't get the latter. The ambiance of wood flooring, beautiful bar area, and clientelle make this little gem pretty noisy. I wouldn't give it a pass on a date because... More

Visiting Boise, I sent here with a friend for drinks at the bar (terrific server (Amy), GREAT selection of drinks). It was so nice, we went back the next day for lunch and it was very good. We had their special (rather then typical fish & chips, it included salmon) with wine & I will definitely go back my next... More

We love Bittercreek! I love trying new beers off their ever-changing drink menu and have discovered some new favorites! Not only are the drinks great, but the food is so fresh and they buy local when possible. Bittercreek is a great place for lunch or dinner and always had great vibes!

I stopped in here hoping for a good drink and a burger. The staff was very nice and helpful picking out a good local beer. I had the bittercreek burger, awesome, get it with cheddar and bacon. Great atmosphere, I might have to go back.

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
