Casual and good!

We sat outside and had a very nice casual dinner. We all had the burgers and they were very good. Also, the bruschetta appetizer and shrimp appetizer were excellent!

Very Cool Vibe, Creative, Delicious Food & Drink but.....Unprofessional & Inattentive Service Hostess tried to compensate for inattentiveness but just not enough. Glass of wine that was ordered to have with dinner came with check, glasses not cleared from table, slow service, never checked in etc. Hopefully, this was an off night because this is a very cool venue with...

I had never been to Atlas, but I had heard it was ok at best. I think it is fair to say they shattered my expectations. I had the pork tenderloin. It was awesome! Not what I expected at all. Perfectly cooked, elegantly plated, and accompanied by flavors that complimented and enhanced the pork.

Food is just as good now as it was 6 year ago. I went to Atlas with a group of 9 plus a pooch and we had a great experience. The Mac and cheese and the Buffalo Chicken burrito continued to be fan favorites. Salad was also tasty and refreshing with a delicious dressing. The wait staff was great about... More

We arrived at the restaurant for a late lunch around 12:45 on a Saturday. The place was more than half empty. We were told that our party of 9 would not be sat for at least an hour. We offered to sit separately, 4 and 5 at a table. Nope, they can't seat 5 for over an hour. There was... More

A really nice little place for a bit of a nicer meal while travelling, with a gorgeous view of the university. The service wasn't excellent, younger servers who seemed in a rush but were never really doing anything.

Everyone seems to rave about this restaurant, but in my view it doesn't hold a candle to Pullman. Yes, my Thai Chicken Salad was good, but I was shocked by the careless service. I was meeting a group of three women at 5:30. When I arrived, at perhaps 5:29, I asked if they were there yet. The correct answer would... More

The food was awesome and the servers were attentive! I tried the Buffalo Chicken Wrap and my friend had the Tenderloin. We split a kids portion of the Mac n cheese too. Portions were big and we each could have had another meal with the left overs! Great place and I highly recommend it!

If you are in Iowa City, you need to stop in for the Buffalo Chicken Burrito. If you're not a burrito fan, try the Buffalo Chicken Salad. The Smokin' Mary is also a great companion to either dish. My all-time favorite in Iowa City. Made sure to time my long road trip to be able to make a stop at... More
