My beef dip was good. But hubby was disappointed by the boneless wings. Said the fries were good, though. Good beer always!


We came in for halibut fish and chips and it wasn't on the menu We were all disappointed our waiter was a very soft spoken man and very hard to hear luckily we asked him about the halibut and it was Friday The lady that brought our food would not remove the onions from my husband's salad which we found quite comical. onions make him sick and he didn't want to have to smell them sitting at the table so he took them to the restroom and threw them away then they forgot his main course when we asked the young lady to brought her food when he would receive it she said I don't think the waiter got anything other than the salad for him Let me go see if I can find your ticket which took her a few minutes finally brought it out and did not even apologize anyway to sum it up good food horrible service.

A must destination upon arrival in Idaho. Excellent vibe and cool air conditioning. Major heat wave while visiting Idaho. A cool farmhouse vibe with a fun menu. After reading Yelp reviews I decided on the fish stick style sockeye salmon with a side salad. Perfecto! The salmon was so perfectly cooked and flaky. My lunch partner, had the salmon club. A huge sandwich which could serve two people. The Onion rings delicious. We also had an appetizer of beef sticks. Battered and fried steak sticks, an Idaho thing. Tasty, but I was not overwhelmed. Probably would pass next time. Cheers everyone and happy Yelping.

Meatloaf was wonderful, our wait staff was fantastic. Recommended just the right beer. Food could have been only complaint.

Great service, nice atmosphere with clean bathrooms. They gave my dad a choice of a free beer or dessert because it was his birthday, which was a nice touch. My tacos were super underwhelming, they had one tiny piece of deep fried salmon in each of the two tacos. For $13 I was hoping for at least three tacos or for more salmon in each taco. The soup was pretty good, but again such a small amount that I wish I'd gotten fries instead. Other people in my parties food looked good, that's why it's just four stars instead of less.

Whether you're here for the ambience, beer, or food - you won't be disappointed! Sockeye is a great local brewery that also serves full meals with awesome service. We came in with a large party for a birthday celebration on a Thursday night. Something for everyone on their menu including a good selection on the children's menu. Our server was Benji, who happend to be training someone, but didn't let that stop in him from providing friendly & attentive service for our table. It's been along time since I've had great service at a restaurant and Benji was excellent. My sister wanted to try the au jus that comes with the French dip and he came out less than 30 seconds later with a small sample cup. I was impressed, and my sister loved the au jus. I didn't get photos of everyone's meals - but I did love the kids mac & cheese and the poutine was to die for. I got the brisket grilled cheese and it was delicious. It had a horseradish mustard aïoli and wasn't too overpowering. Everyone was pleased with their meal except for my brother who is a little disappointed by the fish tacos. I personally think he just ordered the wrong thing. Ask your server for recommendations- Especially if you have Benji as a server. He was spot on- brought everything we asked for including mentioning extra napkins because he knew we had kids with our group.

Pre-made meals they are happy to warm up for you. Can't get peppers with out getting onions? McDonald's can do that for heck sake.....Beer is ok.

Great local Boise feel. Always stop by when I'm in town to visit family. Charming/friendly bartenders that seems to know what you like even though you questioned them. Really hits the spot.

Got the philly. Was pretty disappointed. Beer cheese sauce had zero flavor to it, and it kind of ruined the rest of it. For $14, I expected better. Cool place though.
