we found this place, accidentally, because it was an usual name. A great Midwest feel with very pleasant staff. not your typical bar food, but very outstanding. menu is quite varied, and even serves Czech food.

Very good menu with very reasonable prices and good service. Very convenient location, just down the street from the wonderful Czech-Slovak museum. A definite stop for a meal before or after visiting the museum.

My wife and I were returning through Cedar Rapids as we typically do every other week. We try to find someplace new every time to sit down and sample some new menu. This time we decided on the Blue Toad. It was Sunday evening early, but they were more than willing to rustle up some very substantial, rib sticking, Czech cuisine. Mine was Goulash with dumplings and red cabbage. Honestly, my wife and I probably could have split it without any problem. I would recommend anyone in the neighborhood with a big appetite, stop by and give it a chance.

I had the mushroom tart, dumplings & red cabbage - it was enough to feed an army. Why do they serve so much for 1 person? it was good though
