When you walk into the Idaho Falls location of the Hard Hat Woodfire Grill, you find yourself in an airy, expansive building that, through artsy placement of street signs and hard-hat wearing employees, makes you feel somewhat as though you’ve entered a construction zone. However, the real “construction” is contained to the kitchen, where cooks prepare steaks, seafood, and BBQ to order. The menu, full of traditional offerings such as burgers, sandwiches, and salads, in addition to more substantial entreés, makes the Hard Hat a great place for lunch.

The Hard Hat, truly a “full-service” restaurant, has two bars (the Gravel Pit and the Rafters Lounge), happy hours, a banquet room, catering available and evening entertainment. A brunch menu is served on weekends from 9am to 1pm. Check out the All You Can Eat Prime Rib on Sunday evenings from 5-9 and All You Can Eat Ribs on Monday evenings. Work at the Idaho National Lab? Stop in Thursday evenings to enjoy a discount on your bill (INL badge required).

The restaurant is also family friendly, featuring a children’s play area to enjoy while waiting for a table or for your meal to be served. Additionally, Tuesdays are “Family Night”, garnering you 10% off of your meal.

Hours are Monday – Thursday, 11am to 10pm, Friday 11am to 11pm, Saturday 9am to 11pm, and Sunday 9am to 8pm.
Located in south Snake River Landing area; 1175 Pier View Drive. Phone: (208)523-3675.
