The Boulders have a very clean restaurant and have hired very good help! The staff is friendly and always seem happy to see you. Great drinks and wonderful menu. Did not have room for the desert list but would have loved to try it.

Boulders is a great place to go if you want something a little fancier! Great martini list and excellent menu. Definitely recommend one of the steaks they are done perfectly. Our table also has the crab and artichoke dip as an appetizer which was delicious. I would also recommend a reservation. It's a small restaurant so chances are if you... More

The selection of menu items will never disappoint and each will be well prepared and oh so tasty. The wonderful bread with oil and Parmesan, the fresh, crisp salads followed by beautifully presented entrees. Full bar, well executed and nice wine selection.

This is the second time we've dined here (we're from Arizona). We loved it the first time and again tis time. Absolutely wonderful food. We enjoyed the calamari (tender and succulent with a great sauce), the salad was large enough for us to split and I had a wonderful lamb shank with sweet potato. Not at all dry and most... More

We go there about once a year, so it's hard to say if the place is consistently good, but we've always had great service and great food.... More

Great location esp when you can eat outside.... never really lives up to expectations. Always mixed and sometimes downright awful. Much potential but more disappointment. Really need a consistent staff management and chef. We'll keep trying, but don't go out of our way to eat here anymore

Wanted to treat our 22 year old BSU student/son to a nice dinner for his birthday. He chose The Boulders and it was a great choice. We didn't make reservations (recommended, we just didn't bother to check) but had GREAT service and conversation at the bar. Great food but still reasonably priced. Three entrees and multiple drinks and our bill... More
