“It's always worth checking to see who's playing at the Sapphire Room, and the Sand Bar too, at the Riverside Hotel in Garden City (approximately 20-minute drive). Every seat is great, there is a full bar, and a food menu.”

“Nice walking distance from the Airbnb. Good food - specifically the eggs benedict. A bit of an older crowd most of the time. Coffee is good. Mostly I like it because it is a nice walk - I can give you directions via the foothills if you would like.”

“The Stagecoach Inn is a Boise institution. It is located in Garden City, just outside of downtown, and is known for their prawns and steaks. The space is dimly lit, cozy, and has a staff that has worked there forever (in the best of ways). Get there early so you don’t have to wait.”

“"Burgers on the Side" is their catch-phrase. BFC is another boise icon . . . as expected in the potato state, they serve up fries with different potato varieties, cuts, ketchups, and seasonings. And the burgers are actually some of the best in town, especially the bison burger. Oh and try some of their homemade soda.”
