I am not impressed with City Limits. I refuse to go eat there anymore because their food just isn't that good. On top of poor food, you have to ask for items of your food too such as the dinner roll or dessert. If you don't ask, you don't get it. If you're on a budget this is a great... More

My wife and I wanted to try a new place to eat. We ran across this place listed in TripAdvisor. Decor shows wear and tear you might expect from a well used family diner. It looks like this restaurant might have just changed ownership. They had a good menu selection but the prices were higher than expected. I ordered the... More

I will begin by saying the food was very good. However, if we had not just unpacked two small children, we would have left after seeing the price, as an example, of a plain hamburger at $6.00. Refilling a youngsters cup of orange juice was an added $1.07. Once was more than enough.

My Wife and stopped in here yesterday and had a wonderful meal. Very generous on the portions, served quickly. The great food was topped off by the friendly Waitress and we even chatted with the owners who make you feel right at home! If you are in the vicinity don't miss this gem!

This restaurant is a must while in Maquoketa. Not only is the menu robust but the food is beyond top notch. Never had a bad meal here as far as I can remember. The wait staff go above and beyond so you will enjoy without question.

The food was good and plentiful. Wary sometimes of the "All you can eat cod". A waitress loudly blew her nose at the front counter, facing the kitchen, then proceeded to get the coffee pot and attend to other business (without cleaning her hands). Bathroom needs to be renovated. (But that might be a building owner who needs to attend... More

The food here was fine, nothing especially remarkable, but not a bad stop. The service was very quick- I only waited for about 5 minutes for my food. Prices were appropriate for what was served.

Thank Veratomlan
