Came on a recommendation and glad we did!

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!

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

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

Whenever we visit Iowa City to meet up with friends, the Atlas is always at the top of our list for places to eat. Classy yet relaxed atmosphere with local food and dishes. Upscale cocktails and a large beer selection too. Always a great time! I recommend the Caribbean jerk chicken or pork.

I've eaten at the Atlas a half-dozen times in the past year and on every occasion found the food tasty with reasonable variety. Service has varied from good to fair. However it is a very noisy restaurant so perhaps eating outside would be best during the season if you want to have a conversation.

Service was excellent, the food was terrific, and the sidewalk setting was fun. Inside seating also looks good.

I give this place a lot of credit. First very friendly service. Tasty potato soup that was vegetarian. I ordered veggie burrito filled with fresh veggies and goat cheese. Order wasn't quite right the first time but they cheerfully made it right and it was delicious. I was impressed with the service I received. Nice atmosphere too. I would recommend... More
