Champps was part of the Best Western Plus Hotel in Dubuque. I was in a room for two nights for a business trip. I ordered a French Dip sandwich with fries for dinner one night. I walked down and it was ready in like 20 minutes. The sandwich was really good, fries hot and crispy. Really nice restaurant. They had... More

As with any franchise, the servers can add or distract from your experience. The gal was outgoing but again the food is pub grub, I would drive on if I wasn't a hotel guest. . Beware of alcohol prices as really 2 drinks $18.93 for Baileys on the rocks. In Dubuque? This isn't Time Square. The morning breakfast exceeded most... More

Loved the sweet potato fries! Lots of option, even for a vegetarian in a meat place! Great salad, and yummy desserts!

I would have rated Champps 5 dots if it wasn't for the fact that it's a bit overpriced. I had the French dip sandwich (had to pay an extra $1 just for them to put cheese on it--ugh. Even Arby's gives you the cheese for free;-). French fries came with it. The fries and sandwich both were very, very good.... More

Went to dinner with my 3 sisters to celebrate a birthday. Love the Kung Pao chicken, however there were no peanuts in it. I brought it to the attention of our waitress, who instantly told her manager but....nothing. I wasn't looking for a freebie, but an apology would have been nice. Then, she brings us our checks. Hello? 4 women... More

Pretty standard American menu selection. I ordered the pulled pork tacos. They were good but would try something else on my next visit. Family friendly sports bar.

We were given a voucher for a free buffet breakfast upon our check in to the Best Western Plus, which is attached to Champps.

I highly recommend stopping in to eat here. The food was excellent and my server Michael was wonderful. Attentive but not hovering.

The slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team.Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door.The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and we're the best place to watch the game. No matter what part of the country you're in, you are sure to find a neighborhood Champps nearby
