Just went for some fried pickles. They were okay. I've had others that I like more but not bad. Waitress was very surly. No greeting. No smile.... ever. No "Thanks for coming in." No refill on water. Not even a napkin. Not sure if it...was personal, because I was alone and not drinking, or if Kylee treats everyone that way. I've been in once before, I had a French dip and soup, and the food was good. And the waiter was much more friendly. But I doubt I will be back...More

"Fresh grilled salmon" seemed like it was steamed a couple of hours before, no grill marks, with a "citrus glaze" which was some unidentified shredded vegetable matter and no tang. "Sweet potato fries were both soggy and undercooked, which may be a backhanded miracle. "Seasoned...vegetables" were skimpy and there was no seasoning I could identify on them. I guess if I were drunk and watching sports, I wouldn't notice. I'd give it one star, except it was okay for cafeteria food. Not $20 worth by any stretch.More

We love this laid back place. They have exceptional food for a place like this and the service is always excellent. It's not fancy, but the prices are very reasonable for the great food and fun sport's bar atmosphere.

This is a sports bar and not my usual place to enjoy a brew. However, it was close to my motel and an easy walk. WOW..I have a new respect for sports bars. We chose our seats and was immediately approached to see if we...wanted drinks. The ambiance was not what I was expecting. Don't let the lack of curb appeal distract you from going in. Our server explained the "happy hour" prices and we decided on the IPA's for $3.50 per pint. Liquor house drinks were $2.25! The bar/pub was not crowded and it felt very comfortable and relaxing.More

Very fresh tasty food. Good portion size. We all liked out food not just me. TV's everywhere but no sound but that works for me.

I visited this place several times during the 2018 football season and sat at the bar-top each time. The service really varied depending on the bartender. Seems like there is a gal there with real experience and she appears to be more professional than the...other women behind the bar. The younger gals don't seem to care at all if customers are hungry or thirsty, but rather talk about their 'outfits' and/or shove their nose into their phones so that they aren't bothered by a customer. If they never look up from their phones, how could they even know your drink is empty or they forgot to give you napkins, again.... I thought the food was okay, standard sports bar fare but I really liked the French Dip sandwich. I'd go back again to see if the service improves. If it continues to be terrible, then I'll probably go elsewhere in the future.More

Food was really good, fast at being made. Service was brilliant and drinks were to. The pool table was really well priced and nice area for smoking/relaxing out back. It doesn't look much from the front but it's really querky and fun inside. This place...is a hidden gem. Will come back if we are in the area again and highly recommend to all 😊More

I go to sports bars FOR THE FOOD ! And The Zone has the best casual food I've found in Idaho Falls. Their sandwiches are tasty and filling, and their salads are an experience unto themselves.

Love to sit in the back room with a big tanker of beer and a dinner from their menu. The portions are big, the food is great, and prices are reasonable.

I went here twice during my time in Idaho Falls. I first went on a Thursday to watch a game and Mitch the bartender and he was very nice and informative of the dinner menu. I then went back on the following Monday night and...Mitch was working again and automatically remembered my drink which I was very impressed by him due to him and my not being from the area. I.E. Not a regular... Again he gave me great dinner recommendations and once again call I enjoyed my meal tremendously ! Thanks Mitch for showing me a nice time.More

Our server was not too great. He didn't seem to have time for us even though it was early and the place was not busy. The food was OK. We had a steak appetizer that was very chewy. The marinated chicken was very good but...a very small plate for the price.More

The Zone was unassuming on the drive up to it, a black box almost resembling a strip club. Once inside they accommodate sports watching and have some really good food. There were Taco Tuesday night specials and drink specials also. I had the Chicken Caesar...Salad with homemade dressing which was excellent and my husband had the French Dip. He raved over the dip and said it was one of the best he had ever had. He should know for he has had a lot of French Dips being an avid sports fan while watching games at many of a sports bar! So don't judge this place by the outside and come in for good food and an exceptionally accommodating wait staff.More
