I'd like to thank Chandler's management for finding better music on Tuesday evenings. Now that Esteban "The Hairy Gargoyle" Anastasio has moved onto other opportunities, I and my friends can again enjoy The Saz and your sensational appetizers right after work on Tuesdays. Mike Rosenthal is fantastic and his music is much better suited to your establishment! Thanks again for the major upgrade in your Tuesday early eve music. I'm sure you'll be glad you made the change. Thanks again!!
Great breakfast for $5. Misty was a great waitress.
I thought they had closed up. Several external lights are either off or have burned out bulbs. Can't see through windows - appears all lights are off. Looking in the front door, all you see is an empty podium. I just kept on driving by, went somewhere else that doesn't look so scary.
Mientras Esteban Anastasio juega en Chandler , ya no voy a comer allí . Este tipo de música arruina el sabor de la comida.
It hasn't moved, just a second location. We've been there 3 times along with many in Meridian and always a great meal and service,
Can't wait to try their downtown patio during the summer and Alive After Five.
Love love this restaurant can't say enough about the wait staff awesome they always remember us when we come in even if we don't sit at there table of section very friendly love there food and can't wait to go to the new location on the Grove we usually frequent this place about 2x a month sometimes more depending on our moods have always had excellent service and awesome food we have even meet the owners and the head chef as well all very friendly and we will keep going back !!
You're issue then is with Archbold, fair enough!
I was under the impression that this was to be an area to review businesses in the Boise area.
I don't know the lady but do know there are many places to write reviews, some people just don't get back to BW, obviously you have the time and inclination judging by your number of comments compared to reviews!
Please note that Ms. Archbold has not been heard from since her one and only contribution of 4/14/2012.
Idiotic? Eye of the beholder, Karl.
I love corn fed beef and disdain idiots who don't know any better. Great atmosphere and wine selection. Have done Thanksgiving dinner there for years and always had a great experience.
OK so "seekandfind" has a issue with Ms Archbolds review! His or her comments are plain idiotic!
Now on to a review of Lucky Fins: To start with we've been there many times (since they first opened in Meridian), with the just the two of us and with family & friends. We all have been very happy with out service and dishes we've ordered. I can't recall all the different items I've ordered but they've ranged from a burger (Cabo Burger that I didn't see on the menu last time) to more of and entree dish. Several times we've ordered from the "chalkboard", and always have been pleased with our meals. The in laws who normally don't go to this type of restaurant were very please and when asked were my mother-in-law wanted to go for her birthday; Lucky Fins was her choice! For me personally the worst meal I've there was still quite good.
As far as prices, I think for what you get they are very reasonable as are the dink prices that are on par with this type of establishment.
We were lucky enough to be invited to the Boise Location pre-opening party which was fun, thank you Derek for inviting us! I had the Halibut Florentine and can't wait to go back, I'll get this item again.
Unfortunately the crawdad feed was infested with biting flies. It was horrible. we paid our $50.00 and were there less than 10 minutes. The few crawdads i did eat were fresh but had no flavor. The macaroni salad and coleslaw were warm from sitting out and the corn and baked beans were cold and dry. I would recommend the owners have a little more pride in their product. Customers deserved more respect. Take the time and money and invest in renting a few white tents where people can eat without having their food infested with flies. Also, salads should be kept cold somehow. Call the health inspector. Better yet invite them to your next crawdad feed. Ugh
Murphy's is closing this week. (May 21,2013)
Best to let the departed RIP.
Jaker's has committed suicide. The happy hour is no more. The prices are higher. The Easter brunch was priced sky high for the meager offerings. They have had an almost total turn over in staff and attitude. The climate is now cold and devoid of taste.
I will miss the old Jaker's, but will look forward to new establishment taking over the spot.
The Peregrine has closed. January 2012.
Any steakhouse specializing in "corn fed steaks" is 20 years behind the times. I am sure that this place has many meat wankers hard in their pants, but the food is overpriced and focused on the unsophisticated crow. Great place to pickup an over-the-hill cougar...
The food was poor and COLD! The Calamari Fritti with the refrigerator door dipping sauces was "que terrible". The evening "special" sea bass was Stone Cold Steve Austin...and not hot like Steve Austin...just cold! The grilled Caesar salad had a heavy hint of propane that could not be disguised by the over abundance of flavorless dressing. The chicken leg and thigh with rice and mole sauce slapped on the plate for $23 was not chicken mole. I have bought better jar of mole sauce from Albertsons. Good service and good wine..but that was it...not impressed!
I will never return to the BrickYard again! Our last visit was a terrifying experience. The Brickyard has dropped their standards, at best. I don't think our server answered one question about the menu, she said they "don't really have a wine person who could help us"? We finally asked for the manager (we should have stayed our luck with our server) as the manger was terribly rude and pompous. This was later explained as we watched him taking shots behind the bar throughout the night.
This former wonderful place has tanked! With such high prices we would expect the food quality and service to match.
One star is too many. I thought they would clean the place up but I think it's even dirtier than the Sizzler. Over priced, ruse staff.
Just moved to the area and Jaker's is at the top of our list for eating out. We have been there three times since July 4th and every visit was outstanding......excellent food and excellent service.
Father's Day brunch was $25 and was worth less than half that. The gravy was pure Sysco, the scrambled eggs were a solid dry mass, the bacon thin-cut and cheap tasting, the chicken fried steak tough. The fresh seafood and the lox were both quite good, as were the eggs Benedict and the flat-bread pizza. I didn’t try the hand-cut meat. They also weren’t serving mimosas as part of the brunch price, however, nor the champagne (which their web site claims is part of the brunch but was apparently removed special for Father’s Day). The wait staff was reasonably helpful and prompt, but the place was less than half full at 12:30 pm, so this wasn't surprising. By the time we were done almost all of the deserts were gone (there were maybe 10 items left, most the same, and all of the hot desert pans were completely empty, it looked pretty sad). All-in-all for the price I was severely disappointed.
