It was a little crowded when I went for lunch. I had a burger and beer. What you get is a very large meal and it was very enjoyable. The staff seemed a little light and that meant they were rushing around trying to keep up with customers but they seemed to be getting the job done. I would go... More

I had the BEST TIME at Bittercreek Alehouse! I had the best kale Caesar salad, a beyond-perfect hamburger, fantastic beer, and service that rivals top restaurants! I cannot remember the last time I had such a wonder time eating out.

Casual dining in downtown Boise. The food was fantastic! I had the Chicken Verde sandwich. The chicken was really juicy (almost too juicy as it soaked my bun) flavor was great. My guy got the Huntsman Burger and he was very pleased as well. Our server was friendly, helpful, and attentive.

Went for early dinner with kids and grandkids. Good beer and food, but really noisy and busy. Couldn't carry on conversation with people right next to us. Food took a long time, but was pretty decent. If you like brewpub atmosphere, you'll like this place

Pork street tacos were amazing, made with the freshest ingredients. Was a comfortable atmosphere and a good variety of beer.

We got seated right away but it took forever to get our drink order in and then to actually get the drinks and food. They were busy and it looked like they only had maybe two servers working so ours was running around like a chicken with his head cut off. Two people at the table next to us actually... More

Service was ok, not great but not horrible. It was a Saturday early evening visit and it was busy. Food was average, I think next time I will try a salad. Beer selection was good as well as cider selection.

I don't know the owners personally, but their attention to ingredients, sustainability and running a thoughtful business is apparent in the many details. Also, the food is delicious. If you are visiting Boise and wonder where to eat, this is a great lunch or dinner option.

Bitterceek is a downtown Boise staple. One of the deepest beer selections in town, good menu and primo outdoor patio seating when the weather is nice. It gets crowded on weekends so plan to wait for a table if you can get one at all.
