Atlas has been our go-to place for a nice meal for the past two years. What has kept us coming back is the food and the service. The only thing holding back a star is that there are some things on their menu that are just not up to par with the rest of their offerings. Their burritos/wraps for lunch... More

This place always seems busy, so thought we'd give it a try. I was not totally impressed. I had the scallops, they were ok. My husband had the Mac and cheese, it was good but I would recommend a smaller portion served with a side of veggies or salad instead of a huge plate of Mac and cheese for $16.50.... More

Our server Ben, was very pleasant and effici\ent and offered advice on various items. I had the mini mac... More

After reading the positive reviews, thought we'd give this place a try. Against my better judgment, made the mistake of following the server's recommendation for the "most popular" dish: a "Buffalo Chicken: wrap. $12. Tasted like McDonalds chicken McNuggets on mushy mashed potatoes with over-strong spicy "wing" sauce and globs of melted blue cheese. In a wrap? Really? Took two... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Atlas. My daughter's burger was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed my jerk chicken. The best part of the meal was the macaroni and cheese side dish. One of the best I have eaten!

The waiter was nice, but the service was very slow even though there were only a handful of additional customers. The food was edible, but not great. Food presentation was okay. The restaurant appeared clean, but nothing that makes a person want to come back again.

I visited this restaurant with a client while in Iowa City for business. It's in a convenient location in the "downtown" area. The service was pleasant and the beer/wine selection adequate. Food was low-end New American style. I would eat here again although it's nothing to get excited about.

After our party of five ordered a couple of appetizers and fiver different choices for dinner we all agreed that Atlas offered something for everyone and we all were "thumbs up" on our selections. It was a pleasant Friday night in July and we opted to be inside so as to not risk having flies around should we have chosen... More

Very good food with a little spin on traditional plates. Good service and has a nice atmosphere. Have been pleased each time we have visited.
