This is one of our favorite places to eat in Dubuque. The place has a lot of character and a nice bar area. In the summer you can eat out front on the sidewalk which can't be beat in good weather. The menu has a wide range of choices from fish to meat to pasta and they even have gluten free options. It does get busy on weekends so plan accordingly. It would be very difficult to accommodate a large party so I'd call ahead. The servers are knowledgeable and very nice. I'll be back soon.

The food I had was very good ,but you can have the grits . I just don't like cream of wheat for dinner . A mashed potato would have been much beter served under the entree . For me Grits are disgusting !

Hi John,

I'm so sorry that you weren't a fan of the grits side with your meal, but glad you enjoyed everything else. Please know that you can always ask for a substitution for the side. Thanks, Lea

Service was terrible. Got our check in the middle of our dinner. Steak chewy. Fish too fishy. Manager apologized but dinner was for my husbands birthday and we were very disappointed. Would not return.
