Large venue, 90% dark and unused. At 10PM, three customers. Wife and I both had tacos and a beer, $30. About the tacos, it is best to say nothing. Everything looking patched and broken. It is next door to a terrible hotel and shares a...More

Stopped in for a quick bite before turning in for the night. Husband and I ordered the Cranberry, chicken, walnut wrap, with homemade chips. It was delicious! The atmosphere suggests it is a small town gathering place. The people we're friendly and wait staff very...More

Passing thru town, staying at motel next door (just off Exit 5, I-80). A Tuesday night, about a dozen patrons in bar. Ordered hamburger and a beer ($7 hamburger, $4 beer). The hamburger was surprisingly good.

Atmosphere is more of a tavern than a "sports bar" or pub but, the staff was friendly and the food was good. Looks like a fairly popular place with locals.

Food was very good for a local watering hole. Enjoyed the Santa fe salad. Since we weren't "locals" we didn't have the best attention but it wasn't horrible either. Just know going in folks are a tad closed off to visitors.

We were at the motel next door, and tired of being on the road. Very surprised it was busy, and the food was good. The girl that waited on us took a little while but she was busy, it was not an unreasonable wait, she...More

This is a nice little bar in Council Bluffs. It must have had a bigger crowd at one time so it felt kind of empty but the staff and locals were all friendly.
