Housed in the historic 8th St Marketplace, Solid Grill & Bar, focuses on local food, local beer & local wines. We feature eleven local beers on tap; a selection that changes based on the availability of the best offerings from the local brewers. The food is both classic and daring. The menu is wide enough to please any guest while narrow enough to ensure quality and freshness. Vaulted ceilings, brick arches, natural wood, and warm tones make Solid Grill and Bar the perfect dining getaway. The walls are decked with local art that has a distinctly Boise theme. Solid has two happy hours daily from four to six pm and ten to midnight with half priced drinks and a $1 off our unique appetizer menu. Solid stays open late! Serving dinner until midnight Sunday-Thursday & Friday and Saturday Solid stays up extra late serving full menu until 2 am in the morning. Solid has Brunch & mimosa bar on Sunday mornings starting at 11 am. See you at Solid

Fun evening on the patio for a date night. The nachos with pulled pork for my wife were good and I enjoyed the chicken entree.

The chicken cordon bleu is the best I've ever had (& it's my favorite dish!) and the creme brulee was delicious.

Party of 7. One in our group had a birthday, but Solid doesn’t do anything special for birthdays- no dessert, free drink, or discount for the celebrant. Food service was slow, and fries were limp and cold. One in our group ordered a specialty cocktail which was missing ingredients. He went up to the bar and was told by the bartender that the drink was correct, until customer pulled out the menu and proved the error. When the waiter returned to the table, he again mentioned the drink was first made incorrectly and the waiter also told him that he was incorrect and he would verify with the menu. Waiter came back to table and reluctantly acknowledged customer was correct. No credit on the bill for that drink. Received automatic 18% gratuity added to bill.

We went to Solid for Restaurant Week - they had the best prix fixe menu of the participating restaurants. And we were not sorry! The food was fantastic, plentiful, and priced very competitively. The wait staff was helpful, but not overbearing. Would not have considered Solid for a date night previously, but would highly recommend it now!

The food and server were great. We liked everything except the music. Whatever happened to nice relaxing background music? Your music was not as loud as other places just it was the type of music we didnt like. We will come back next summer when we can eat outside.

We were a party of 10 on Saturday night before attending a nearby theater performance. Chose this spot mostly because of location, but food and drinks were really good and our server was outstanding—friendly, professional, nice about separate check distribution, and got us out of there so we could make the performance on time!

On a busy Friday night, this was the only place to find a table for 6. It's just a bit off center from downtown, but a very easy walk.
The food looked great. I ordered the pork nachos, a wedge salad, and the mac-n-cheese. The nachos were nicely spiced, and there were plenty to share. The wedge salad is actually a Wedge Chef's Salad, and it's huge. I recommend the wedge. Finally, I'm a MnC snob, so, while the flavor of the mac was good, it wasn't hot enough; it was warm.
Our waitress was inviting and kept track of our needs. Lastly, it's very loud, even when the other tables aren't occupied. Two members of our party wear hearing aides and they couldn't understand anyone.

Nice wine selection by the glass to start. We had the artichoke dip and spinach for app and it was tasty . Street tacos and Italian Grinder for our meal and both were very good. The service is perfect, they do not rush you and the waiter was very helpful. We were also a couple of minutes past happy hour but he took care of us. Nice touch.

Everything was wonderful except for your maitre’ de....he was apathetic and acted like he could care less if we were there or not....he seated me (I was waiting for two others) and just tossed the menus down and turned around to leave like he couldn’t wait to get on with his life....

We went to Solid for Restaurant Week. I'm not a fan of pumpkin in general, but the pumpkin-and-something- I-don't-recall bisque was terrific. The catfish and grits was almost as good. Friendly, unpretentious place. Will definitely go back.

I normally stick with my go-to gyro (the best in town in my opinion!) but we tried the hummus (great) and the nachos on this visit. Unfortunately the nachos were overcooked, not enough cheese and the cheese on there was brown and crispy, they were overloaded with jalepenos and a little disappointing for the price. This won't deter us from coming back though!

Singer on patio was horrible! Too loud for the location. She tried to overcompensate for her off-key singing by pounding on her electric keyboard. The table conversation was a struggle Server had an attitude too, like she was put out to have to repeatedly return to our table for a new bar order because they were out of the beer my husband was ordering. Took three trips. Food was okay but nothing special.

I never realized Solid was more than a bar and had food. I was even more surprised to find that it was really good food! My husband and I shared the risotto bites (and almost licked the plate clean because they were so delicious), the sweet potato enchiladas (kind of a small portion, which normally is fine, except they were so good we wanted more), the steak salad (also great) and the bread pudding (which was not the best I've ever had but was still a really good bread pudding).

Great father's day dinner! Patio seating in historic Boise, live music not too loud, good food! Only minor complication was that our table and neighbor's did not have silverware. A fact that the server missed so we both were forced to walk inside to ask for some. A minor detail overall. Server was very attentive otherwise.
