Boise is more than just the capitol of Idaho, it’s the capitol of great food. Boiseans love eating out and we love seeking out the next big thing. New restaurants get more attention than Oscar-winning movies in this town. Sometimes, though, we crave nostalgia and comfort. That’s when we head to well-known restaurants, such as Lock, Stock & Barrel for great prime rib or perfectly cooked salmon.


This year, Lock, Stock and Barrel celebrates its 39th year in business, and it’s no surprise to those of us that have followed it from its old location on Emerald to its current spot downtown. Parking is free, happy hour is from 11:00am to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday, and the steaks are still the best in town. The Sunday special is still prime rib for two and their famous clam chowder is always on the menu.

Regulars know that when they walk into the place, owner Scott Singelyn, will more than likely be there to welcome them. In an industry known for high turnover, Singelyn has employees that have worked with him for years. He jokingly says it’s because he “treats them like adults.” Whatever his secret is, it’s nice to see the same friendly faces when you visit. Singelyn also uses humor to explain the longevity of his business, “Has it been that long?” He shrugs it all off and jokes with the servers before saying, “People like good steak.” He’s grateful for his regulars and lets them know it.


Reservations are necessary on the weekends (especially for holidays) and the Lock has rooms available upstairs for banquets. Call (208) 336-4266 or reserve online.
