Wow! I thought I was back in Tampa, Florida at Bern’s Steakhouse! (Don’t even think about missing this one! But make reservations!!!!) The only thing missing was the smell of the salt air and the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore. Bern’s is our benchmark for steaks and the Castle Ranch Steakhouse in Boise comes very, very close. Delicious and tender steaks! Here is their Online Dining Information and here is their Online Breakfast Menu and Prices. And here is their online Dinner Menu and Prices. (Note: Both of these menus are in PDF format.) I am sorry that my photos of our steaks did not come out to my satisfaction. I guess we will just have to go back and re-take the photos!
According to Tyann Meier, Manager of the restaurant and of the Sports Bar, they try very hard to use local products on their menu. We did find a good selection of Idaho wines. And be on the lookout for their wine dinners coming up early in 2012. Ms Meier said that these special dinners will be in the $50.00 per person range for a full meal that does include the selected wines for the evening. That is a good price for the quality of food that they serve. We are on their list for these events. Might even reserve a room for the night and have a great time “out-of-sight”. Who knows.
They have a full breakfast and dinner menu. They are, however, not open for lunch. Look for their contact card in the sidebar and contact them for more information. Here are some photos of our evening.

An awesome Berry Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream. Don’t miss this one!

So what is our rating? Out of 5 Stars, a solid 4+ Stars!! You really do have to try this one. It is awesome. Cheers!
