We tried this place after a disappointing experience at the next-door sushi place called: Raw Sushi. The restaurant is nice and new and a lot of yuppies seem to like it. I ordered the Ribeye steak and wife ordered a caesar salad. Everything BUT the steak itself was good. I asked for medium rare and got more like medium well. I didn't complain but just tried to enjoy it. The steak was a little dry and chewy and covered with carbon, apparently from a flame broiled grill. It had no flavor at all, I guess they didn't put a rub on it or marinade or anything. I even had to put salt on it and I NEVER salt my food. It was supposed to be 14 oz, but I seriously doubt it was, unless it shriveled to half its size during cooking. Seemed like a very thin cut as well. Bottom line is they do not know how to prepare or cook a steak. Maybe other choices on the menu are good, I wouldn't know and will not hazard another try. Like I said, all the other stuff, soup, vegetables, mashed potatoes were good.
When visiting your Cole Road store recently to have lunch, I was appaled that the waitress told me they reserve jelly and butter that is not opened. Have you considered with all the hype about spreading virus's that I had just sneezed into my hand, picked up a package of jelly and put it back in the dish as my husband has one partially used and offered it to me. When I said to the waitress, "you're going to throw that away when we leave." She replied, " no I'm not, we reuse any that aren't opened. This may be a turning point in my formerly wholesome relationship with Crack Barrel!
I always loved the greenbelt bike path in Boise when one of my kids moved here. When I came to visit in Fall of 2007 to meet my new grandchild, we stayed at Hotel 43 and had dinner at Chandlers. I was ready to move to Boise anyway after meeting my darling granddaughter and then even more so after a wonderful evening with live piano music and vocalis in a much more hip and contemporarily classy atmosphere than we ever found in West Los Angeles. Two years later I was a Boise resident and have celebrated many special occasions at Chandler's.
