I asked ahead of time about gluten free options. Upon my arrival no one could give me any definite help regarding what I could eat, the waitress followed me around apologizing but not helping. When I told her she was not helping she proceeded to stand behind me and make faces at me with another hostess. After an extensive wait... More

We come to Champps for great food and service, but always sit in bar area so not to have noisy children. Tonight there were two over active loud kids banging against the booth, which kept pushing on us. We finally moved to another seat. Kids don't belong in the bar.

Nice place to grab a quick bite. The food is standard American and the service is good. There were lots of TVs showing different games all at the same time. Service was quick and friendly.

Champps was part of the Best Western Plus Hotel in Dubuque. I was in a room for two nights for a business trip. I ordered a French Dip sandwich with fries for dinner one night. I walked down and it was ready in like 20 minutes. The sandwich was really good, fries hot and crispy. Really nice restaurant. They had... More

As with any franchise, the servers can add or distract from your experience. The gal was outgoing but again the food is pub grub, I would drive on if I wasn't a hotel guest. . Beware of alcohol prices as really 2 drinks $18.93 for Baileys on the rocks. In Dubuque? This isn't Time Square. The morning breakfast exceeded most... More

Loved the sweet potato fries! Lots of option, even for a vegetarian in a meat place! Great salad, and yummy desserts!

I would have rated Champps 5 dots if it wasn't for the fact that it's a bit overpriced. I had the French dip sandwich (had to pay an extra $1 just for them to put cheese on it--ugh. Even Arby's gives you the cheese for free;-). French fries came with it. The fries and sandwich both were very, very good.... More

The slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team.Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door.The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and we're the best place to watch the game. No matter what part of the country you're in, you are sure to find a neighborhood Champps nearby
