“Informative and Friendly Server, Pretty Good Food, Excellent Beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

Our server patiently brought me a couple of different samples of the different regional craft brews they have on tap at Moscow Ale House, and I finally went with the brew named roughly Vanilla Bourbon Stout, which was rich and satisfying without being too cloyingly rich. It was well-hopped while still being mellow and very drinkable, especially for such a rich, sweet-tasting beer.

My husband tried the regionally local "nitro" style craft brew and pronounced it good enough to order another.

His order of a reuben sandwich was flavorful and served at a nice temperature.

My order of the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich was served to me promptly and (as requested) without the bread/bun. The meat was juicy and flavorful, complemented by the mushrooms and bell peppers that were kept in a pleasing ratio to the meat.

I liked the cheeky attitude evinced in the menu, in which the Moscow-based University of Idaho's sports rival (Boise State University) was gently dissed by the inclusion of the menu item "Boise State Burger," which is described as, roughly, "just your everyday old unimaginative plain burger." ;)

Our female server was prompt, wonderfully attentive, and was more than willing to chat at length with us as we queried her about what life in Moscow is like, since we have an interest in potentially maybe moving there.

All in all, an informative and pleasantly relaxing experience.

“Great Little Restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

We had the buffalo chicken salad here, which was good - but beware of the heat level you order. I misjudged and ordered a little on the volcano side, leaving my taste buds numb for the next hour. This required another beer, which made everything juts fine. Its a college town, so be prepared for routine busy times to be more like chaos.
