Great Bar - Good Food

Stopped in last time we were in town for a friend's wedding. It's changed only a little since we'd been in college which was great! Good bar - I believe we had a newbie bartender but we didn't mind. There was a group of around 20 of us so we knew to be patient. Thanks for the memories Atlas!!!

The crème brûlée is the best I have eaten anywhere, and I have eaten crème brûlée in major cities in American and Europe. Wonderful custard with a crust just right--not too thick and distributed so that you have both custard and crust with every bite. Their filet mignon is delicious too. Excellent wine list. The place tends to be noisy,... More

The prices were a little high but the food was delicious! The side salad was a wonderful surprise and everything I ate was really flavorful!

Nice outside patio in good weather. Consistently good food. Inventive menu but not weird...just good food done a little differently. Always good service.

Atlas World Grill is one of the best restaurants in Iowa City. They have a nice mix of menu items but there Buffalo Chicken wraps are to die for and several irresistible desserts.

We visited with a large group for a fast, light business lunch. I had never been to Iowa City and the location of this restaurant seems to be very pleasant. We took a walk around the area which was enjoyable. As for the meal, there were 10 of us and the waitress was on top of it....she was fast, knowledgable... More

Atlas is right downtown and in a great location. The food was fine. Portions huge and a bit heavy and uninspired. Good if you are really hungry.

High quality American Fusion cuisine with unique presentations.. Typical bar drinks and wines. The atmosphere is casual and the prices are on the higher side.. Surely a place to try when you are in town..

Yes, the Bloodys are beyond good and you have to try one(or two). Unique and perfectly spiced bloody mary that makes a morning wonderful. Hand out on the patio and enjoy the sun and the sites @ Atlas!
