We rode our bikes to this restaurant for a buffet breakfast with the Midwest Tandem Rally and we were disappointed with the meal. Buffet was set up outside in the wind which cooled off the food very fast, they kept running out of items, coffee pot was never plugged in and the price for the meal was ridiculous. How can you charge gratuity for a self serve buffet?

Met up with friends for bloody mary bar that we had heard so much about. They are also touted for their food which was excellent but we had one person in our party not get food until 30 minutes after the rest of us were done. When I asked waitress if we had to pay for that meal, she said they are more of a bar than restaurant and have a small kitchen. I empathized with her as they seemed short staffed, but maybe they shouldn't have such a large menu if they are more of a bar. I'm hoping we just hit them on a day that was not staffed properly. We will try again another time.

Great neighborhood bar. Serves their own IPA. Great selection of home brews. Made it their mission to build most of the bar with reclaimed items from all over and especially Iowa. Great people great atmosphere. A must go to for a great time.

Have lived in the area a long time but have never been here before. Outdoor patio adds a lot of seating on nice days. Rode our bikes right up to the entrance! Pricing is reasonable. Awesome staff is constantly on top of anything you might need.
Menu offers good selection of appetizers, sandwiches and dinner entrees. French dip, cowboy burger, and nachos are all quite good.
As for decor, Irish Pub is part of the name . . . not sure It is necessary to update, may want to improve indoor lighting.
On the bike trail near Bondurant? Plan for lunch here!

This is a small bar with great food. We go there on a weekly basis. All the servers watch one another and take care of everybody. I highly recommend this place just for the food aspect. They also have a party room upstairs that I see many People holding events at
