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.

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.

We were on a poker run and decided to stop at the Spillway for lunch, great choice, we had 18 bikers who ordered wings, burgers, pork tenderloins sandwiches and wraps, everyone stated the food was terrific. Great find and well be back again.
