Wonderful food and service. I highly recommend the marrow. The bread pudding was wonderful and large enough to share. It also has a full bar and is set up like an old fashioned diner in a rail car.

We enjoyed ur dinner -- menu has a nice variety and staff are lots of fun. The music is too loud for us and impossible to escape in a small restaurant.

Visited with friends for lunch. The Pullman Bar & Diner is a very interesting restaurant located in downtown Iowa City. It makes one feel like being in a Pullman Car on a train! The sandwiches are great and the service matches.
