Here's an honest and objective assessment of Bittercreek - Overall I have visited several times and been decently satisfied. Experience has been inconsistent with service and food.

Bittercreek has outside and indoor seating. Fans and mist spray keep you cool outside. The menu gives a great selection. I had a turkey and swiss sandwich, very good.

We are only in Boise for one night and met some friends here for dinner. Loved everything about this place! Great beer selection. The French dip was the best I ever had. Service was friendly and very knowledgeable.
