“Great Service & Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014 via mobile

We love this location! Always friendly staff, great food at a good value, very clean. No matter how busy they get, the service is consistent, as is the food. They don't try to rush you through your meal.

“Always Great in Iowa City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

The food here is consistently good and although they offer new menu items, you can always get one of their regular dishes that you are familiar with. That is what I most appreciate about this place - knowing what to expect. The staff are always relaxed, helpful, attentive, but not too much. My suggestion is to get there before 5 PM on any day. Otherwise, you will have a lengthy wait and although it is worth it, I don't like to wait. We got there about 4:45 PM on Valentine's Day and had a delicious relaxed meal in front of the fireplace.

“Another Good Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

As usual the meal was very good but it was the service that really stood out last night. Our server was, Will J. and he did a first rate job of taking care of us. Restaurant managers are always hearing about the bad but in our case we also like them to know when their servers do a GOOD job.

Excellent service staff with a warm smile and enthusiasm. The unlimited soup and salad with warm appetizer was a great way to recharge for the rest of the day.
