4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had a mid-afternoon lunch at this restaurant and were not disappointed. It is located across the street from the old Dubuque Brewing and Malting House which is in disrepair but interesting just the same. When I inquired about the Brewery, the waitress was quick to offer a book for my review that talked about the building's early history. Good food,... More

Amazing. Just amazing. Great decor and atmosphere. Great view of the old brewery ( I hope they don't tear it down!). We took reviews to heart (get it, Valentine's Day lol) ordered the charcuterie board and broasted chicken. My husband had a bacon bleu cheese burger. Try the Moscow nuke or Bloody Mary, both were awesome! We will be back!

servers are personable and attentive. The gyros are the best I've ever eaten....including those in ATHENS, Greece! :)

Mid ride stop on our bike ride. Beer selection is excellent. The scotch egg is outstanding mid ride fuel.

Stopped in for early lunch and were glad we did. The decor and atmosphere were great. The food amazing, the dessert awesome! We had fish filets...go with breaded and the meatball sub...both were memorable. Worth visiting and we will be back.

My family and friends wanted to go to a nice sit down eating area between games at our soccer tournament. But we were rudely denied access due to our party being 'too large'. There were 12 of us in total with one not eating due to allergies. When we asked to be seated the host said that our group was... More

This is a Gem in Dubuque, ya'll. And no, I"m not an employee, investor or otherwise have any stake in the claim. This chef knows how to cook! We treat ourselves on hot Summer Saturday nights after a long hard day at work in our Organic Gardens to a delightful, stick to your ribs, healthy, flavorful dinner. We adore the... More
