Loved this place! Lively scene, like 40 beer taps, awesome menu, great bar staff. Had the Reuben sando, and it was perfect. Good local craft beer options. Had two that I'd never had before and wasn't disappointed. Lots of whiskeys also. price was shockingly mid range, and could easily have been a couple bucks more for everything, so that was... More

I enjoy the atmosphere and the music. Food is delicious. I have had the fish and chips and was given a generous portion. Next time my husband and I went we decided to share a meal. We had a burger and fries and sharing that was just the perfect size for us. We enjoy trying new beers and ales. The... More

We regularly dine at Bittercreek. They have great food, vast beverage options, vegetarian friendly, carnivores are welcome. It can be loud at times. It's a great value and great food. Recommended.

Enjoyed burgers for last Saturday's lunch -- the highlight of our bikeride to downtown. We were able to enjoy Boise's beautiful weather while dining on their patio. All of our burgers, fries, salads were delicious and cooked per requested. Variety of ales & beers. The BlackBerry lemonade was great. Service was good and accurate. Yummy food and casual!

I've been here several times and the food was wonderful! And a perfect place to hang and try the local beer.

I was in Boise recently and met a friend at the Bitter Creek Alehouse for brews. Our waitress was quite cool and fun. She recommended beers for both my friend and I and we drank. I've been out of the micro brew scene for a few years so didn't notice that I was drinking 9%, phew. Good thing I was... More

The Bittercreek Alehouse is in Boise Id and was a lovely way to finish up the evening. They have a hearty list of beers. I chose the Bittercreek Payette fine and dandy. It was delicious. Cheers to the waitstaff and the eclectic style of the bar/restaurant.

Walking downtown Boise. The place had a good crowd so we went in. Good selection of draft beer. Horrible selection of bartenders. As a resident of Boise I would strongly recommend one of the microbreweries with the great local feel that Boise is known for versus a corporate chain type environment similar to the walking street in Denver or Lower...

Our bartender Shawn/Sean was fantastic - he made the evening a blast. Knew so much about the beer and if he didn't, he had all of us taste it together to figure it out. Had us trying several different beers without even ordering a taster, wanted to be sure we got exactly what we wanted. Really enjoyed talking beer and... More
