Chandlers Prime Steaks & Fine Seafood

Where Boise gets chops and classy live shows
A local favorite for corn-fed beef, seafood and nightly live jazz performances, Chandlers Prime Steaks & Fine Seafood delivers an upscale dining experience in downtown Boise.

Known for its regionally sourced cuisine, the restaurant inside Hotel 43 specializes in Kobe-style beef complemented by Idahoan ingredients for sauces (Roquefort demi-glace) and sides (the city’s famous spuds star in the au gratin potatoes).

For entrées, chef Luis Flores serves everything from filet mignon to lobster tails, though there’s a great Idaho-sourced three-course dinner option, which offers a soup or salad, meaty main and dessert.
