Re: “Lock Stock & Barrel

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.

Re: “Firehouse Sports Pub

A nice really chill place to go. Nice bartenders and pretty cool frequenters as well.

Re: “Varsity Pub

ive been in several times the last couple weekend. i had better than great service from a girl named Gina. she was always extra good to us. i was told this week end she is no longer w the company. i do t know what happened but she gave the best service we EVER HAD. If you knew what was good for your business get her back. every one makes mistakes and she definatly deserves a second chance. we spend alot of money there. She is worth it!

Re: “Murphy's Seafood Bar and Grill

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.

Re: “Brews Brothers

Lots of great beers on tap, not just all the usual stuff! Staff is really fun and cool! Happy hour is a little weak and it is smokey for sure!

Re: “Mai Thai

I'm pretty sure the last 12 reviews are written by the same person! It's strange that they all were written in a span of 2 weeks, are all 5 stars, all reviewers only have 1 review, and they have a distinctly foreign flavor to them! I wonder who could have wrote them all?! Though it might be justified after being given a 1 star review by Gigimarie, whos only other review is a 5 star review for Mai Thais next door neighbor Pho written on the same day! The truth about this place is it's overpriced, decent tasting, and somewhat hip(like everything downtown.)

Re: “End Zone

Pretty sure they have liquor. I'm kind of sold on the fact that they just might be having someone under 21 write these reviews.

Re: “The Blue Door Cafe

I had a TERRIBLE time ordering a two topping pizza over the phone. The new girl didn't know what she was doing AND there was no one around to help her. When I finally got a different person on the phone, she was rude to me. So I cancelled the order and called trusty Chicago Connection. Well, Garbonzos didn't cancel order and they both arrived at the same time! Oh, did I have a hay-day with that! Garbonzos ended up leaving pizza, free of charge and asking "please give them another chance"- I had both pizzas in front me for the ultimate taste test challenge...Garbonzos won. I will give them another try:)

Re: “Redheaded Finn

Good beer selection and nice environment, service is very good. The food isn't exceptional, but it isn't bad. If this were located in any other area it would be somewhere I'd consider going to as a place to sit around with friends to sit around and watch football while having a few drinks on a regular basis, as it is there are so many other places very close that have exquisite seasonal menus and extensive drink offerings so it's hard to justify picking the Falcon unfortunately.

Re: “Reef

The location and rooftop venue's simply awesome paired with Boise warm, late nights, and the food can be quite good, though as Aaron mentions some things I've tried verge on microwaved. But the Duke's a solid burger and I hear good things about the rum-soaked turkey sandwich. If you like spicy, try the voodoo fries or the jalapeno margarita!

Re: “Cheerleaders Sports Bar and Grill

I'm giving this place three stars, because they served me a very tasty steak. I was actually surprised. Everything else served to our party was generic, bland looking pub food. Our server had trouble identifying which menu items were worth ordering. Slightly better than Buster's or Buffalo Wild Wings.

Re: “Piper Pub and Grill

They attempt to make fancy gastro-pub food here but don't do a good job of it. They'd be better off making high quality simple food instead.

Re: “TK Bar

TK's is a nice little bar if you people, but not so bad if you don't either. Everyone seems to love the place and the band (that I believe is the owner's band). The music is good and you can find some good company and games.

Re: “Bad Irish

Great place to be, have gone there for drinks multiple times - including St. Patricks.. which is the ONLY time I've heard music I've liked.. they do NOT play Irish music at this place and it's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Irish pubs shouldn't play frickin American rap music!!! Hey Mr/Miss DJ... put on some Flogging Molly, Real McKenzies, real Celtic music that ROCKS and still won't put you to sleep!~ Much better than the crap people grind to at every other club downtown. Otherwise - GREAT drinks, great prices, great environment!! Change up the music and it'll be my favorite bar!

Re: “Lock Stock & Barrel

Good steaks, decent brews, but service could be better. Why are you bitching about a salad bar at a steak house. Take a few hits from the clue bat and move along.
