Awesome family dinner for 7. We had the prime rib special, bone in pork steak, shrimp scampi, steak salad and steak sirloin. The salad bar is the best and this night clam chowder and prime rip chili were the soup specials

We also had martinis, wine and beer all were great.

The service was perfect, our water was constantly filled and used dishes removed quickly.

All in all a great restaurant and we will be back.

Been to lock stock and barrell many many time, the server was terrible, he was slow, would come back to the table smelling like he just took a drag from a cigarette. The food quality was terrible and looked cheap and tasted very poor like it came from an Applebee’s! This trip was very disappointing and we were there to celebrate and left hungry and disappointed.

We enjoyed this restaurant which had live music when we arrived. Our server was excellent and the meal so much better than a posh expensive steakhouse we'd gone to in Portland Oregon.
Well priced tasty food. Loved it.
The restaurant is simple, no frills but we enjoyed it and the music.

When I ask my sons where they want to go to dinner it is always Lock Stock and Barrel. I started spoiling them 3 years ago and take them there at least 3 times a year. Best steak house n Boise. From opening the door for us when we arrive the staff is fabulous, right there when you need something. All the years going here I have never had a bad experience (even took my prom date there back in the 70's). Thank you to the management for having such high quality workers.

I’ve been to Lock Stock and Barrel several times. The food is excellent with a large selection of entrees. The service is also excellent. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The manager checked in on us which was nice. I had a couple special requests for my meal and they were met satisfactorily. I will definitely return!

We love this place! Just a couple of blocks from the center of downtown, the location is convenient for those who need parking or for those close who want to walk. This is a local Boise establishment and we love to support local businesses. And most importantly, the food is great! We've always had great meals here and make sure to recommend to friends.

The salad/soup bar was excellent as always. The salad bar isn't flashy but it always pleases with the basics of what forms a great salad. Personally I'd like them to add mushrooms, but that's a personal preference. The Clam Chowder - most excellent as always.

I had a New York Strip Steak that was expertly prepared at medium rare. The steak was tender and full of flavor. I can't wait to order this again! The loaded baked potato that accompanied was a great addition. I added on breaded shrimp as well, and while good, these were clearly frozen and and not homemade breaded like they were years back (please turn back the clock and prepare your own breaded shrimp again!). My wife had a Barrel Steak that was also cooked as she requested at well done that she said was flavorfull. She enjoyed a Baked Potato as well.

Dessert was the traditional mud pie (Cow Pie) that always pleases - the fudge on the top was so good.

Service was exceptional. Our server was attentive, friendly, funny, and at the same time, not intrusive at all. Gold stars!

We enjoyed the convenience of the online reservation service as well.

This place = great food and great service. We'll be back soon!

As always, great food, great ambience, great band. Unfortunately, the service was subpar this time. Our waitress had a trainee with her and seemed a little overwhelmed. Took us almost 20 minutes to order, and 25 minutes to get our drinks, which they forgot. I would understand if it was a weekend night, but it was a Thursday at 5:30.

Delicious food, attentive server made for a lovely evening out with our friends. Realizing this an established Boise restaurant, I must note that the ambiance doesn't quite exceed our expectations especially with the price point of the entree's.

Our waiter as exceptional! He was attentive without hovering and we never felt 'forgotten'. The chef prepared each of our entree's to perfection. Three of us enjoyed steaks while the fourth member of our party had the lamb.

I ordered a medium rare steak... It came out rare... My wife ordered a medium well steak... It came out medium rare. Salad bar was horrible... Old lettuce and no cheese... What salad bar has no cheese? My 7 year old could have made a better dinner. Just a all around horrible experience. Not an experience I would ever pay 80 bucks for. Rather would have gone to Texas Roadhouse... Or Sizzler.

The food was very tasty and well presented. I especially loved the sourdough rolls. My husband had the prime rib and I had the Chicken Marsala with risotto (it was one of the nightly specials). Both dishes were excellent. I had a tomato, feta, and onion salad with my meal that easily could’ve been a meal on itself....it was so good. Our server was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was cozy and comfortable without being stuffy. The tables on the restaurant are not tightly packed together, as is often the case with other eateries in town. The only downside I noticed was the noise. We were seated on the upper level and we’d occasionally hear loud talking and laughter from the bar area downstairs. It wasn’t a deal breaker, just something to note.

From the large wine selection to the fantastic prime rib, everything was delicious and the service was absolutely top notch. The mud pie dessert with espresso ice cream, fudge and cookie crust was to die for!! We are looking forward to going back soon!
