Ranked #20 of 170 restaurants in Dubuque
Cuisines: American
Description: The slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team.Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door.The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and we're the best place to watch the game. No matter what part of the country you're in, you are sure to find a neighborhood Champps nearby

Champs food is good but every time I go I hope service has improved and it hasn't. They are either unfriendly or they get the bill wrong. If you have a coupon they either claim not to know about it or forget to take it off. Reading other reviews I must be the lucky one to get this kind of... More

We had 16 in our group so finding eating facilities that could accommodate us was difficult at times. During our stay in Dubuque we used this group for breakfasts, lunches and dinners. They also prepared/served our banquet meal. Food was tasty, and reasonably priced. The restaurant could have had better acoustics as it seemed to get loud quickly but I... More

Champps is no gourmet restaurant, but they serve good food and alcoholic beverages. I had the baby back ribs which were average, while my sister thought the Chicken Ranch Wrap was very good. The Cookie Express dessert was delicious. The waiters were very good and attentive.

Mother's day is always packed, but noon works well, seated in few minutes of reservation shows time management. Waitress Connie was pleasant, knowledgeable and efficient. Kobe beef burgers were thick juicy and finely cooked. Excellent selections of beer and whiskey.

Had pre-concert drinks and dinner. We had great service and a great dinner. Mandarin Orange Margaritas - enough said!

The service was good, but not great. The food was OK, but not great. The ambience was good but not great, at least they had a game on. This place is just another Ho Hum chain sports bar and grill to me.
