This place is never busy, not sure why! Always delicious food. Good service. Beautiful ambiance in the restaurant. Great for brunch or a nice dinner. Full bar, clean, and located in the heart of downtown Dubuque’s historic hotel Julien! Can accommodate families or large groups.

Nostalgic atmosphere with hints of yesteryear throughout the restaurant, and adjoining hotel. Atmosphere is inviting and service is great. Breakfast here was very good and the service was great. Hotel Julien is very nice experience as well.
