The food here was very good. My daughters both raved about their burgers, my husband raved about his tuna steak sandwich, and I really enjoyed my fish & chips. Of course we had to try the cheese wontons, which were tasty as well. The service was quick and friendly. Loved the atmosphere, especially their winter decor.

Went here with a group of basketball parents between games on a Sunday over the noon hour. They really had no interest in our business, which would have been well over $600 for an hour and a half worth of work. They shuffled us into a corner, then never served us. Then, had the audacity to come tell us they... More

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
