    Food overall was good…the pickle board was great, would definitely order again. Brisket sandwich was good, but tends to be a little dry without adding additional sauce. Not sure why they don’t trim the fat off their brisket, although it’s good, I had to take my sandwich apart to cut off the half inch layer of fat on the meat. No one wants to eat all that fat! In addition their meat platters are pretty expensive, $35 for a bbq platter is pretty ridiculous.

    Menu was different from what we found at Open Table, less choices, higher price. Happy Hour prices that were advertised at Open Table did not apply. Service was good, drinks were decent but dishes were between horrible and just ok. Worst dish you can order are Mac and Cheese (we had that for our daughter). We won’t be back.

    Restaurant ambience needs a LOT of help! First impression was it was smoky in there. Then the tables and chairs were just cheap looking. Where we sat there were stacks of junky boxes in plain site. One of the restrooms was closed and they only have a onesie so there was always a line. Then the toilet in the remaining bathroom backed up, according to the lady in front of me, so I didn't even dare to flush. They badly need some updating, but if that's not affordable, at least some plants and things, which are cheap but can make a difference. Floors were dirty. My mom had to ask for them to be wiped when she almost slipped. Food was decent but not great. What rubbed me the most wrong though was that we asked for an ice tea refill to go, and when the waitress hesitated, I pointed out that my mom never got a refill. Then when she brought the to go cup back, she made a point to tell us not to expect that in the future and that they were making an exception. Really?? It's a 5 cent iced tea that you're charging $3 bucks for! With all of the great choices in the Treasure Valley, there was not much to compell me to go back here. Probably a first and last time thing.

    This was our first time trying Saint Lawerence Gridiron. The service was good. The food looked fabulous, but was mediocre. The best part was the fried potatoes. We had the brisket Benedict, biscuits and gravy, RX burger, pulled pork breakfast tacos and a monte cristo sandwich. All the dishes lacked flavor except for the tacos. Unfortunately, they forgot to put the eggs in the tacos and the pulled pork was dry. The brisket was also dry and lacked flavor. The burger was really good, but the bacon was way undercooked. We took maybe 2-3 bites of the monte cristo and couldn’t finish. Very boring. Not sure if we will try again. Very expensive for subpar food.

    We’ve been coming here for years and it remains one of the best restaurants in Boise. Billy our waiter was brilliant (Go Dodgers!). Literally the best meat and sides menu. I had the shrimp this time but we always go all in on the poutine, brisket, dirty bird and pulled pork. Have NEVER experienced a bad meal at St. Lawrence which I can’t say for most Boise eateries and got especially bad in COVID (but understandable considering the strains on staff and supply chain).

    Chicken wings were OK- could have been crispier. The sauce for the wings was a sweet variation of a ranch, which I was not a big fan of. Next time I am going to stick with probably what they are good at and that's the brisket or ribs. The salad was very average (we ordered the winter salad). I would have liked to see more salad options such as a caesar or house salad.

    All around wonderful!! We haven’t been since pre-pandemic so we were happy to find the cocktails and food are still great. Love the spice on the fried chicken! Service was excellent, my Vieux Carre cocktail was perfect, and the food was awesome. Our only complaint, and one I’ve mentioned before in reviews, is the wooden pew seating. SO uncomfortable!!! Ditch the pews and just add more chairs or build in a banquette that isn’t tilted and is tall enough to match the tables.

    Saturday evening dinner with my bestie. We ordered side salads and the brisket platter and the Ploughman’s platter. Brisket was super tender and flavorful, just the right amount of smoke. It was a bit on the fatty side, but the portion was decent. It came with collard greens which were tough and inedible, cornbread which was a bit dry, and pickled onions and pickles. The Ploughman’s platter was fried chicken, which was a bit spicy, potato salad, and Texas toast. Chicken was juicy and delicious, I didn’t eat much of the potato salad, as it had onion in it. Portions were big and service was attentive.

    Always a wonderful experience. We were unfortunately seated next to a group of 6 overly exuberant men with no volume control, but it was a minor annoyance only as we had an excellent conversation going at our own table. The food was spectacular and generous in quantity, and the service was attentive without being annoying. Our waitress was very energetic and bubbly and ready with a recommendation or a refill when asked. 100% will go again. My only real complaint is that the menu is small and seems pretty static so we only go once a year or so. Highly recommend the brisket, the pulled pork sandwich, the salmon salad, and the 6th man burger!

    Best drink ever... Curiously George. Rum, banana, creamy from egg white. So delicious, may work best as dessert. Will sad when that menu rotates. Brisket sandwich is always flavorful. Best fries around in my opinion. Fresh cut and delicious. Will be back! Rhiannon is such an attentive server!!

    It had been a while since dining at Saint Lawrence Gridiron. I made reservations for Sunday dinner. The food was amazing and the service exceptional. Started with the mac n'cheese. We had the fried chicken and the grain bowl. It was top notch from start to finish and will definitely add it to my regular list of restaurants for dinner in Boise.
