I came here for a business lunch with a group of 8 people. It's basically a pub with an above average menu of selections. I definitely was pleasantly surprised by the creative menu which included a cheeseburger with bacon, fried egg, and peanut butter (Aussie Burger). Service was very good and the ambiance was a typical pub (dark wood, televisions,... More

My wife and I have been going to the ID for years. It’s one of our favorites because my wife has a food allergy and the waiter/waitresses are very good about conveying that to the cooks. It's “bar food” but they have some specialty items like the Orange Roughy, Mushroom Caps and the Mediterranean Salad that are excellent and rival... More

Probably deserves a 3 if comparing to Minneapolis restaurants, but a 4 if comparing to other restaurants in Cedar Rapids, We stay here occasionally when passing through town. The waitress told us not to order the Italian stuff because it just isn't their forte, so I got the Irish stew (see photo), which was good, not great and a bit... More

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.
