This is one of my favorite restaurants period, let alone in Bloomington. Consistently great every time!

If you like a good manhattan, look no further than Uptown. This my go-to place for work dinners and drinks with friends.

We did a late brunch with a limited menu. I ordered and omelette with cream cheese and it was delicious. I was surprised by the coffee since I like strong coffee and most american restaurant coffee is too weak for me but the coffee here was very good. Great service and great food.

Always get the ribeye! The bar has such a great selection. Wonderful pate but never enough pickles. Oh and the pot roast is phenomenal! Ordering whiskey? Get them to hook it up with a giant ice cube! I take most out of towners here for a nice dinner.
