Contemporary American
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

Odd experience, we made reservations for 7 pm. Waiter told us the pulled pork wouldn’t be ready until 8 PM. So we ordered an appetizer to kill time had a couple drinks and then there was a waiter waitress shift and then she told us nope he said it’s not gonna be ready till 845! No apology, nothing. Pretty bad that a party of four ended up eating nachos waiting for pulled pork sandwiches. Just odd.

I’m sure Covid-19 affected their business, it was not busy at all. Our server and the food was good, I’d go back when there are no restrictions because I think the place would be hopping!

I have been to solid multiple times, and everytime the atmosphere and service was wonderful, and if I can remember right, the food has always been wonderful as well. This last time I went on valentine's day and everything was perfect except for our entres, my meat was burnt, potatoes disgusting, and beans undercooked. I realize that it must have a very busy day for everyone, so I didnt think too much of it. I still love this restaurant and hope that when I come again the food will be up to it's original standards.

I have eaten at Solid multiple times. The food is wonderful, but this time the service did not match up. Overall slow service at a table next to a cold door that kept opening. Food was hot and delicious when it arrived, but it took more than 50 minutes after we arrived to receive our food. Will come back again in hopes of better service.

Great restaurant. We ate out on the misted deck with live entertainment that night. Food and service were both excellent. Drinks were a bit too strong though.

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!
