“Totally overpriced, but great”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

If you have a mind for "bang for the buck", you may want to skip the Frontdoor, especially if you have beer on your mind! They have some interesting selections, but they are always overpriced, and served with an air of rude snobbery if you get a particular long time bartender there....if you don't tip her like a queen every time, she treats you like cow snot forever, which is so ridiculous...but that's a different issue. Service problems aside, they do have some great beers, and their pizza is some of the absolute best in town. It's some of the best because of the obvious attention to quality ingredients. I have had other items from their menu as well, and always, always enjoyed them thoroughly. Whomever is running their kitchen is doing a damn fine job!!! Great eats!!!!

“Great beer & pizza!!!”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Friendly staff, great low key atmosphere, great selection of always rotating beers and the best pizza in Boise! The only time you can order just a slice is on the weekend, and I wish you could order just one piece during the week days too. The Goodfella pizza is my favorite!! Everyone should try this place! Oh ya, great location!

“Fun place -- delicious pizza”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

We kind of stumbled upon this place on afternoon. It is downstairs from The Reef restaurant (which is also great). Great pizza and salads.
