My husband and I came here for a quick dinner with 2 other couples for the first time and were really impressed with the service and the food. While the bar was really crowded during happy hour, we received our food very quickly, and the server was very attentive. I got the fish and chips, and they were seriously phenomenal!

This is a local watering hole for me so have been there quite often with friends and clients. The place can get busy at lunch or dinner but service is always fast. Everyone loves the variety of appetizers and many times that's what we order for our meal. They also have a wide variety of meals with the ribs, French... More

My husband and I ate here with another couple, and were very happy with our food! We shared appetizers, and also had delicious drinks! They have many beers, and a great Martini menu to chose from. The atmosphere was good, especially on the bar side. We'd definitely return!

The place was very busy but the waitress was quite attentive to all in her area. The food was tasty and portions are ample. It is a nice setting for drinks and a meal.

The Irish Democrat(ID) is a restaurant that is also a bar. Lots of Democratic political pictures and campaign posters on the walls. A little bigger than the basics menu featuring quality burgers sandwiches and pizza. The thing everyone raves about are the cheese wantons. They are the best appetizer in Cedar Rapids. You park in the back at the ID... More

They have a variety of foods to choose from. It is a favorite of our friends. Food is delicious! It is not your common fast food place nor is it a supper club, just deliciously prepared foods.

I had lunch here on a weekday with 5 other people. We were seated right away. The host was friendly and pleasant. Our waitress was very busy and didn't check with us for refills or desserts. She could of made more money. The place is your typical bar décor. Table is clean and seats are debris-free. The place gets very... More

Delicious food. I recommend the fried cheese wontons and the pretzel tenderloin. They don't take reservations.

The food is yummy and waiters were nice. It is a dream for Democrats who are collectors of political items. It is fun and educational place to eat!
