A: pretty sweet little pub. Nothing flashy. Mellow.
Q: beer was good. Not outstanding. A couple of beers seemed pretty grainy.
S: service is good. Friendly.
Selection: pretty standard. Pale, IPA, Amber, stout, winter seasonal, Tripel.
All of my friends from Boise rave about the beer. Although it is good, definitely drinkable; it is not supreme craft beer.

This place is ginormous. I got lost trying to find my way to the bathroom to change out of my work clothes before headed to the airport for my flight home. I then proceeded to get lost again trying to find my way back out to the patio. There are back hallways, conference-sized dining rooms, halls lined with tables and a room with the bar. All of this is in addition to the outdoor patio seating.
The service was impeccable. If the bartender/server who took care of me wasn’t the owner or the brew master, then he’s one of the most knowledgeable barkeeps I’ve ever met. He kept my glass full and was very attentive even though it was an odd time of day to be eating and nearly nobody else was there.
The food is great. They have sweet potato fries that fully satisfied my craving for my favorite side dish. And they have a ton of salmon – all of it fresh – all of it delicious. The form I chose came in a sandwich, which was also quite good.
I get fuzzy when it comes to the beer. This obviously means I was not impressed with any or all of the offerings. I remember that one had won several awards, but I couldn’t tell why. If I remember correctly, my favorite offerings were a seasonal (can’t remember what” and the Power House Porter.

Checked this place out on a trip up to Boise. Really big place, seating all over. Service was nice, they took real good care of the kids, coloring books, crayons etc. . .
Drank the dagger falls ipa, loved it, bummed I couldn't get the barleywine though, but hey, its a pretty seasonal beer all around, so no big deal. Figured with a name like Sockeye, I should probably get the salmon, it was damn good as well. Their harvest ale was unique, one of the least hoppy harvests, but still good, an octoberfest and ipa hybrid at times.
A pretty unassuming place, right off Cole road, didn't have to wait long, I'd check it out again just for the dagger falls.
