Ordered pizza and sandwiches. Food was OK but nothing special. The place had and old look to it. Place smelled like and old stale basement. This place needs remodeling. I would not recommend.

We really enjoyed the pizza here along with the homemade soup! The roses growing outside the window were so beautiful. We really enjoyed our lunch.

I met some Guys for lunch and to discuss an upcoming function. I always order the tenderloin basket when I come. My wife is also a tenderloin lover and She orders it also. The meal was delivered hot and fast. The tenderloin seemed to have shrunk and changed since my last visit. I have now decided that their tenderloin is... More

My husband And I went for lunch. They were understaffed everyone in our area had slow service. We ordered the BBQ big shot sandwich with ff and coleslaw. The sandwich arrived severely crispy/burned I have no idea how they served it. I thought I would just eat the meat out of it - it was terribly fatty and you could... More

Found this place while visiting Dubuque. Good size, tasty pizza. Fast service. Family friendly. They did look at me funny when I asked for a take home box. Guess they're not used to people not finishing their food. Would Recommend it!

I had the best Philly steak sandwich I've ever had. After I ordered I remembered that I was going to try the pizza. This place is really neat with a dining area in the front and an area in the back with a walk up window. The booths in back are large and you go up a step or two... More

Wonderful thin crust pizza, great burgers and fast service. Full bar, friendly atmosphere and good value. A fun place to meet with friends or watch the game. Always satisfies!

Whenever I am in the Dubuque area, I had over to the shot Tower for lunch or dinner. I love the memu but I always end up with the chicken. This place is unique in that you can order from the walk up window or go into the bar and sit down area. It is up to you. The service... More

I can understand why some people won't like the Shot Tower Inn, but this is my style of pizza place. The pizza is fresh, loaded, and baked to a nice crispy finish (the thin crust is a bit thicker then I am used to with thin crust, but they actually get an awesome texture in something that thick. LOVE it).... More

I've eaten there several times and it's always been a treat. One time I ordered the ribs (I find ribs easy for some places to do poorly on) and they were really good. Before that, I had sandwiches and pizza and both were very nice. I have always found the people working there to be helpful, but perhaps a bad... More
