Neighborhoods value their pubs as a place to socialize, just as they value the ends of their rainbows as a place to find extra parking-meter change. Enjoy camaraderie at close proximity with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pub fare and drinks at Bent Fork Bar & Grill in Caldwell.
The culinary crew at Bent Fork Bar & Grill crafts a hefty selection of comfort fare fit to pair with a frosty beverage from the full bar or the ever-flowing draft-beer taps. Fried pickle spears artfully fill plate canvasses ($6.99), and grilled salmon and dilly tartar sauce join forces within two pita tacos ($9.99). The half-pound Hog burger, crowned like a beauty-pageant runner-up with sliced ham and bacon, will cause romantic taste buds to craft sonnets in honor of each pork-glorifying bite ($8.49), and the classic Reuben arrives at tables displayed between slices of fire-grilled sourdough bread ($7.99). Hungry parties can cozy up at tables under the dining room's beamed ceiling, or they can throw the family tartan over an outdoor patio table overlooking Indian Creek. Sippers can quench thirsts with pints of draft Blue Moon, Copperhook, or Pyramid Hefeweizen while choreographing an interpretive sock-puppet dance to one of the live music performances Bent Fork hosts throughout the summer months.
Bent Fork Bar & Grill
The animated cheers of sports spectators at Simplot Stadium rumble in the distance, but the atmosphere at Bent Fork Bar & Grill is peaceful. Diners lounge within its sun-filled dining halls or on its back patio, where the Indian Creek rushes past guests lingering over their final bites of burgers, steaks, and pastas. Beneath the restaurant's high ceilings and wooden pillars, you can spot the owners—members of the Buhler family—tending to their respective posts: Amanda supervises the floor, Bo captains the kitchen, and Ryan doles out draft beers and specialty cocktails at the bar. Throughout the month, they also host community events ranging from live music to town meetings to vote on the mayor's new haircut.
