lock stock and barrel Ratings and Reviews
We have been to Lock Stock and Barrel many times and we love it every time. We enjoy their menu choices, prices and their delicious food! The service is wonderful as well. This time we took our son and his fiancé to eat for a special occasion and we were not disappointed. They loved the food as well. We recently visited a pricier steakhouse in Boise and their food was not as good as Lock Stock and Barrel's. We are big fans!
It was a casual and comfortable place. Old and worn out. I asked the waiter to leave off the cheese from my salad, he left off the Parmesan but I got the feta anyway. Nothing vegan on the menu.
It was a casual place my in laws would enjoy but not a special occasion celebration place. In my opinion.
Service is great! Food is excellent and the pricing is very nice. There are several sections to the place, including a bar area, upper and lower eating areas and banquet or large meeting rooms. From appetizers to prime rib, to steak and all the trimmings! All great and will be heading back again, real soon.
its just like they advertise. Not pretentious, great salad bar, good choice of sides that come with each meal and they can grill some serious cuts of beef and seafood. Really quality cuts, cooked very well. The place is cozy and comfortable, dressed up or casual is all comfortable. We like the bar and live music, but it does not impact the restaurant vibe.
It is a consistent Boise classic. Boise has a lot of choices for a fairly pricey steak house and this place is not cheap, but it will always be worth it.
We’ve been coming to Lock Stock since they were located on Emerald street. Have always had amazing prime rib. Quite frankly, it’s my favorite place for prime rib. Unfortunately, the prime was very tough this past experience. I’m not sure if this was just a bad night or if this is the new norm. The salad bar seems to have very few selections lately and it was always such a great salad bar in the past. It’s a drive to the new location so don’t come as often. The clam chowder was just ok. Wait staff was fantastic though, so that helped. It will be a while before I pay that again for what we got. Although, when the prime is good, the value is spot on. Our dogs enjoyed the prime rib as they got most of it unfortunately. Sincerely, Miss Disappointed.
Building is old and in dire need of an update. The food was below average. Salad bar was meager, my pork tenderloin was smothered in a somewhat bitter glaze, and my wife's prime rib was sliced as thick as cultured stone and just as tough. They had pack so many people in the bar I bet they were in violation of fire code. The only redeeming quality of the evening was the song selections by the small band jammed in the corner. This used to be a premium establishment in the Boise market but there are so many more options now. They had better raise their game or they will suffer the same fate as so many others have in this dining culture.
We love the steak, I personally enjoyed the Filet Oscar and the salad bar is the best and freshest by far here locally. My husband loved his Rib Eye, and it was well done ask he requested. The first visit ever the music was low key and perfect for our date night. However this weekend Saturday night, same weekend night as previous visit, the music was loud with single vocalist and some duet and way too loud. This was the only down side.
Normally, we would rate this experience 4 to 5 stars but this visit was not up to the normal. We were celebrating my birthday as we do every year . (Also, on her birthday). Here goes:
First. The lighting over table 2 is so dim that we could not read the menu. Second: The hot rolls were undercooked. We sent them back twice. Finally, the rice was also undercooked and was left uneaten on the plate.
We did complain about the rolls and probably the lighting but the rice was part of the main dish and didn't want to embarrass ourselves any more.
I used to LOVE Lock Stock & Barrel when it was on Emerald. The ambiance AND food was so much better before they decided to go upper class. When they first went downtown I went in and immediately left as I am sure other people did because they didnt have the salad bar. That came back. Plus 1! I had gone in there a couple times since and the food was ok. January 9th was my b/f 60th birthday. I noted this in my reservation. Table was nice. Food? I could have had a WAY better meal at Texas Road House for less money. A piece of meat that was barely room temperature and a baked potato that could barely melt the butter. And with a whopping price of $27.99 each for the 8oz prime rib(only because you've gone upper class) I'm quite disappointed. At the end of the meal, she asked if we would like dessert. We said no. Then when she was bringing out the check, she said, " I totally spaced its your birthday, would you like some dessert? Its on us." We said no, just put it in a to go box. Sad to say, but I think that this girl who was born and raised on the old Lock Stock & Barrel will find other places to dine from now on. I dont believe I will be going back. There are way better places to eat in Boise and Meridian than LSB.
In a nutshell: great food, genuinely friendly service, ample portions. Bring a serious appetite! The live music was great fun to hear as we finished our meal. (We sat upstaira and could still talk while they played.) This place feels like a true Boise establishment, a place where locals substantially outnumber tourists.
We’ve been here many times and have enjoyed it for special occasions. The last time (about 8 months ago) it was ok, not great. This time it was bad. No flavor in any of our items, soups were bland, steaks were flavorless and I ordered a specially seasoned aged steak to get that good flavor. I don’t think we’ll be back as we feel it getting progressively worse. Very sad as it was a staple.
We went for our first anniversary dinner. The meal and service were outstanding. My wife had the filet Oscar, and I had a prime barrel steak. Both were cooked to perfection and delicious. They even comped our dessert because it was our anniversary. The service provided by Taylor was top notch, there when needed but not intrusive. All in all, a great time. I highly recommend Lock stock and barrel for a great meal and experience.
In general, I was disappointed. I had expected a more pleasant ambience. I felt like I was in an old diner from the 70s. The service was friendly and good. The salad bar is nothing to rave about. You can get that at any casual dining restaurant. The meat was fine, however we can grill a steak with my flavor at home.
I was disappointed that our 25th anniversary was not recognized. When I made the reservation, the system asked if it was for an occasion and I indicated anniversary. We weren't even asked which anniversary. Our table was too small. The food was delicious but because the booth was so small, I didn't want to stay and let my food settle after eating.
