Just moved to Dubuque and finally feel like we found "our kind of place". Love the food, atmosphere, and the staff was more than I could ever ask for. Everything is made in house fresh, nothing comes from a bag or box. So far this is my favorite place in Dubuque!!

We went here with family--grandkids through grandparents. Very friendly, good seating for a large group. Everyone who had burgers raved about them. For everyone else, their food was good but they weren't raving. Prices are a little high for Dubuque, but still within a reasonable range. A few people had drinks, which were enjoyed. We will eat here again, everyone... More

Great local place to visit. Definitely will return again and again. Food was a little pricey but worth it. Servers well knowledged in the menu and attentive even when very busy. Great for couples and families! Parking is street parking but seemed pretty available.

From the outside, this is an unassuming place. Friends had recommended it so in we go. The inside looks good and fresh and the servers are pretty good. The food was really good. The fish and chips came with a couple of choices on how it is prepared. Trying to eat a little smarter, I went for the broiled and... More

We went with our best friends to celebrate their anniversary before a river cruise. We were SO happy with this place. Driving there, we wondered about the neighborhood, but it was a lovely area. Families and singles were all there. Great atmosphere, great service, and all our food was delicious! The truffle fries started our meal and we finished with... More

We were here on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn't too busy but busy enough. The service was good and the food was great!!! This is definitely someplace we would fontina gain if we were in the Dubuque area. My son had wings and said they were some of the best he has ever had. The homemade chips were also... More
