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

First time there and enjoyed the food. Had to use a menu to cover the air vent under the table that we had along the windows.

The food was amazing, as usual. Our server Olek (I’m sure I spelled that wrong) was exceptional! Their brunch is so good.

Food was good, but the service was awful. We sat down and waited over 10 minutes for a server to come take our drink order. Then another 20 minutes to get him to take our order. Then we waited over an HOUR to get our food. We couldn’t get refills on our drinks. We almost walked out. No communication from the server. He just ignored us because he knew we were getting mad about the wait. It was a bad experience. The only thing that saves them was the food was good. But we will never go back.

We have been to Solid a few times in the past and really enjoyed it, but this trip was not our favorite. The service was not friendly at all, and the food was not great. We went for brunch and got a brunch sandwich, and "orange citrus" french toast. The sandwich my man had was alright, but the orange french toast was awful. It was saugy and the orange zest did not pair well with french toast. I'll stick to a safer choice next time instead of branching out. We also got their hashbrowns because the last time we went we LOVED them (they have just a little bit of cheese melted on them), but this time they were extremely burnt, and the portion was TINY. Really disappointed. We will still be back because we love the atmosphere and in the past we've had great experiences, but we hope that next time will be a lot better.

Our server was really cool but the restaurant ran out of burgers! Not his fault of course. The food we ordered was not good. No seasoning on steak and it was overcooked. Fried chicken was overly breaded and over fried.

Good and lots of food. More utilitarian seating than comfort. I had never been there so I didn't know what to expect. They have an outside patio for summer. I would go again.

We always love going to Solid Grill & Bar. We sit outside to enjoy the weather and the ambiance of the people and cars on the street going by. Every food and drink item we have ever ordered was delicious. Service has always been great too. One of my favorite places to go on a casual Sunday to eat and listen to music or on a Friday evening out. Always enjoyable in every way.

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.
