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

Great place to share a special Christmas Eve dinner with family and friends. And, the staff was very accommodating.

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.

The food was very good and the prices were reasonable. I didn't think the decor fit the menu and wasn't very comfortable. Enjoyed the live music.

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.

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....

Our waitress "Kat" did an excellent job. The only disappointment was 2 different online menu's showed a ribeye with different methods of presentation. No ribeye's on the actual menu.
