Tried it once.

First time coming here. Very interesting layout, we walked in and didn't know where to sit, there was a side where you can order and pick up yourself and then there is a restaurant side. We went to the restaurant side which has the most interesting set up of tables and booths. We decided to... read more

Typical bar food. Lots of tv's with sports on. Not well lit. Sauce on pizza was too sweet for my tastes and the hamburger was dry and crumbly, almost like dust on the top of the cheese.

Went here with the family. My wife had the tenderloin and my daughter had the cheese burger and I got the hot roast beef and potatoes. Let me tell you something. I have never had such horrible roast beef in my life. Took only one bite and chewed and chewed with no progress. A tire would have been a better... More

Was directed to this place by some locals. We listened. It was very hot on this particular day. Inside the restaurant was a little muggy. Definitely did not get cooled off. Pizza was ordinary. Not sure I would recommend this place to others. It was extremely noisy in there as well.

Pizza was very good. Had the lunch special which is good deal. Will definately go back to try others. Had to wait little bit even though didn't appear busy. Pizza's were probably made to order. Which we didn't mid.

We fell into this place in a long walk around Dubuque. We had smelled their smoker the day before and on our walk....we found that smoker by accident and gave it a shot. Wonderful food, prices and fantastic sweet potato fries! Best ever actually!

The food was good, as was the service! The decor is fun and a great middle ground between the Wisconsin/Iowa rivalry, which is great for our family and friends who reside on both sides of the Mississippi! The menu had many great options. For these reasons, I give 4 stars and a thumbs up!

We went to the Shot Tower for a little dinner on a slow Wednesday night. At first the waitress was great. Came and took our order right away. As we ate she never came back to check on us. The only table. After 15 minutes waiting for a refill my boyfriend finally went up to the bar to get more... More
