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!

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
