4.5 of 5 bubbles based on 1 vote

I travel to SIoux City, IA about once per month and I have listed my favorite places to stay, eat, and play.

  • 1. Marina Inn
    Marina Inn Hotel & Conference Center, South Sioux City, Nebraska

    Stayed in most of the hotels in the Sioux City area, this one has the best service, rooms, views, and food all in one. Join thier frequent stay club and only pay $72 per night versus a much higher rate if you are not a member.

  • 2. Kahill's Steak-Fish Chophouse
    Kahill's Steak-Fish Chophouse, South Sioux City, Nebraska

    Connected to the Marina Inn, this has the best view in all of the tri-state area. The steak and seafood is among the best, and it has the best wine list between Sioux Falls and Omaha. Service can be slow in the dining so we usually eat in the bar where the service is outstanding. Brock the bartender rocks.

  • 3. Miles Inn
    Miles Inn, Sioux City, Iowa

    Looking for a unique lunch or late night (hammered and need food) experience, please stop at Miles Inn for one of thier world famous Charlie Boy's and a schooner of beer. The Charlie Boy's are a loose meat made with special spices that really add some flavor to an ordinary sandwich. Don't ask what is in there, they won't tell you. The schooners come in frozen mugs and taste excellent. You must stop here.

  • 4. Buffalo Alice Pizza

    Best Pizza in Sioux City, since 1975 this place has been popping out some of the best pizza in a three state area. They have many kinds of unique ingredients, such as buffalo, prosciutto, sauerkraut, and habenero peppers to really make the pizza rock. Besides the best Pizza they have over 115 different kinds of beer on tap and by the bottle. Friday and Saturday get there early or you will have to wait a long time. Also, service is slow, so be patient, it takes a while to make these awesome pies.

  • 5. Whispering Creek Golf Course

    Think you are a good golfer, well I am an eight handicap and have played Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Whistling Straights, Beth Page Black, and many other courses, this is not as good as the ones mentioned, but what I will tell you, it is as hard as them. This is one of the most challenging courses I have ever played and even though I consistently shoot 78 to 82 from the tips on most courses, I don't think I have ever broke 90. So if you like a challenge and like big greens and long holes, this is the one for you.

    This course boast five par five's, one of them being over six hundred yards and most of them averaging 560. Eight, nine, 10, and 11, if you can get through these holes even par then you are a great golfer.

  • 6. Paxton Tap Bar

    Looking for a bloody mary at 7 a.m. seven days a week? Looking for a place to party before a big football game or some other event? This is the quintessential dive bar that has every socio-economic demographic known to man. The blood Mary’s rock and it is a great morning bar to get your groove on.
