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!

Whenever it is Friday or Saturday night and time to go out, the Irish Democrat is always our family favorite! From ages 17-87, we are all pleased with this restaurant. First of all, it is easily located....right at the corner of 1st Avenue and 32nd St NE. The service is always the best; the beer is always ice cold with... More

We like to go to this place for lunch. The food is good and the service is good as well. The menu has a large variety of food from salads, to sandwiches to salmon and burgers.

This is considered to be a 'main staple' to come for drinks and dinner if you live, work or visit Cedar Rapids. It seems to be always busy and it's because it's a fun place to be.

I won't be returning, although I used to be a big fan of the I.D. It seems to me the quality and care of food preparation has been gradually degrading the last year or two. This most recent visit was very disappointing. I ordered one of their many burgers for lunch, which they've been doing pretty well on. Well, they... More

This was our first visit to the ID. It had a welcoming fresh look as we stepped in from the heat outside on a recent summer afternoon. We seated ourselves and were promptly greeted by a waitress who took our drink order. My husband ordered his old standby, full slab of ribs and fries with cottage cheese as his side... More

The Irish Democrat has been around for too many years for me to remember when it opened. The food is always well prepared, the service is usually excellent and the atmosphere is relaxing. If you need a break after hours or a bite for lunch, this is an easy to access establishment that offers variety.
