“good burgers and friendly service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Our family (10 of us) went to Wallaby's on a chilly Saturday evening. We were seated on the "patio" which was fully enclosed, big screen tv's to watch the games, and overhead heaters similar to what you find at ski resorts. Very comfortable even though very cold outside. We had burgers, soup and salad, etc. All was very good. Our server was very attentive, responded immediately to our needs with a number of kids, etc. Had a nice time, will definitely go back on our next trip to Ames.

“My favorite Sports Bar and Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Great food and lots to choose from on their menu. Every both has its own TV so you can watch what you want. But, if you don't have a booth, you can check out the big game on the numerous big screen TV's around the restaurant. Want a great dessert? Order a slice of one of their Wally pies, which is an ice cream pie on Oreo crust, made with the candy bar of the day. Yummmm!!!
