The best in town
I lived in the clam capitol of the world for 40+ years Seattle. And moving down here I must say I miss the food from the big city. However I've been to almost every high end restaurant in Boise Eagle Meridian and none hold a candle to the clams at crows inn. Trust me seafood is pretty sad in Boise but crows inn is as close as you will get to good if not great clams. Would like to see them use whipped butter for dipping with a little garlic. Just what I like... 5 starssmilies/smiley.gif

Ben's Crow Inn used to be soo cool. The last few times I have eaten there I have been sorely disappointed. The clam's they are famous for are so over priced it's sad. You would think they would give you a break on something that they pride themselves on. The yellow jacket's out on the patio love the clams. But then again they don't have to pay for them do they! I for one am really sad to say I will probably not go back.

well despite the fact i love the clams, i always try something new when i go in. So far i have yet to not like a meal. the cheese berger are AMAZING! the stuff shrip is good but a little rich. i would recommend spliting the stuff shrimp since 4 of them is a little much. last time in my GF and I split the cheese berger and stuff shrimp and it was a perfect meal. As long as you tell them you want to split it they will devide it up on the plate before it gets to your table. the wait for food in the summer can be long but you have to understand the place is FULL and you can really expect to get you food instantly when there are 50 people in front of you. just drink your beer and relax

Crows Inn
Ben's Crow is great for a Sunday afternoon beer. I have had the clams and they are a treat! We usually split one bucket 3 ways as a mid afternoon snack with our beers. It's a great Boise Staple. Staff is super friendly and they have a great beer garden to enjoy the summer afternoons. Nothing too fancy, this is my favorite dive.smilies/grin.gif

great food! i always stop in after a trip up to the lake or the mountains in the winter. my favorite time is after a long camping trip stopping in and getting a cheeseburger. The patio is great! has a nice view of the river and the sunshade they put up provides plenty of shade from the summer sun. My wife and i went there on November 3rd 2008 and got a 3 1/2lb bucket of steamed clams for $29.95 which are by far the best clams in Boise! i got the half and half which is a small fry and a small salad and my wife and I BARELY were able to finish it. A+ by far one of my most favorite restaurants. During the summer there can be a long wait for food but at least you are able to get a table and start drinking beer on the beautiful patio as soon as you get there.

Ate there Sept 5th, 08. We had (2) Finger Steak dinners w/ half order of salad & half order of fries, one single pitcher of beer, and a bucket of steamer clams. That's all. The Finger Steaks where terrible. They were deep fried and way over cooked, nearly burnt. The breading had a heavy used cooking oil flavor and the color of the breading was a dark, dark mahogany. Finger steaks should have a lite, tan hue. When we bit into them, the meat was so tough and stringy (as if they cut the meat with the grain, as opposed to against it). There was noting spicy about these Finger Steaks. Burnt and extremely bland. Salad was OK typical garden mix from the bag, and the fries had a heavy burnt oil flavor and overdone as well, causing the texture of the fries to very tough. When we we got the bill, imagine my shock when I found out they charged me $40.00 for a small bucket of steamer clams, Forty Bucks! Just for the clams. I complained to the manager who came out and told me that the reason they were so expensive is because there were 3 pounds of clams in the bucket, and that the clams were $8.00 a pound. Well, I knew better. I called Reel Foods Fish Market. On this very day for the average Joe off the street, a pound of steamer clams is $4.95. Now, if you're a restaurant, you'll pay a buck or two less than that. The bill was nearly $70.00. We could have ate at PF Chang's for that. And our food wouldn't have been burnt. Never, ever again will we eat there. Ever!
