REVIEWS OF Black Sheep Social Club IN Iowa

Grumpy OleMann

Very nice place. I had my first Poke Salad. It was excellent. The happy hour beverages are a good touch as well. We will return soon.

Vamsinadha Reddy Mallavaram

Nice Food, Quick service but very few options for Your dinner.! Overall, a good place to hangout in evenings.!

Jeffery Davis

I really liked Black sheep. The staff was friendly, the food was really good, and I enjoyed the atmosphere. I did find it the tiniest bit overpriced, but I guess with the downtown location maybe that is warranted.I'll probably be back, and I do want to check out the brewery that share space with them.

Richard Gray

Nothing to complain about here except it's quite expensive. For a party of seven was $40 per person plus. So we may come here again but only on a special occasion.

Whitney D

I really don't understand why this place rates so high. Neat building but food is very average and ours was served like warm at best. Took forever and they werent busy.

Tyler Brott

Good drinks, decent food. Weirdo hipster atmosphere

Michelle Cook

Excellent wait staff, and the bus people are right on it. One took my plate with watermelon before I was Oh well... maybe in future ask if we're done with it before swiping it away. Other than that, very clean, open atmosphere. Unique and comfortable.

Mike Scanlon

Michael Clayville

I went to Black Sheep Social Club on a weekday afternoon. The large, beautiful restaurant was nearly empty. Service was fast and polite and the food was very good.

Matt Weiss

Fantastic Moscow Mule menu! Great service and very good food. The catfish nuggets are outrageous!

Jeff Boehm

Wow is all I can say! impressive when you drive up and even more so when you go in! Friendly staff and above average service. The food was excellent and served quickly. We were just passing through on our way home to Rochester and we're very impressed. We need a place like this at home! Keep up the GREAT work!

Tiffany Vomacka

#poor service. Only 5 patrons at the bar. It wasnt busy at all. The bartender was busy entertaining a couple friends at the bar.

Lori Richardson

Very nice environment, Drinks were very will proportioned. The food was delightful and flavorful

Kate White

The atmosphere was relaxed and perfect for visiting while eating. I ordered a beet burger for lunch even though I usually eat meat and meat and it was amazing! Shared a bite with my very sceptical companion and she said it will be her choice on her next visit. The whole experience was perfect that's to great food and superb serve staff.

Shiva Elayedath

Overall an excellent experience. Great beer selection. Their brisket sandwich is the best I've ever had. Our waitress was super nice, excellent service.

Jeffery Ward

We visit Cedar Rapids 3-4 times per year and Black Sheep Social Club is becoming our favorite romantic restaurant for cocktails and dinner. Last night we had the Lamburger with Smoked Gouda, Brussels Sprouts with Almonds (highly recommend), Rum Mule, Praline Old-Fashioneds, and finished with the Blueberry Bread Pudding and Raspberry Chocolate Mousse. This place has a great vibe for quality crafted cocktails, hanging out at a large table or the fireplace couches with friends, or an intimate couples evening. They do have a large party room that is semi-closed off. Easy street parking on 1st st.

Joan Lehner

I did not order a main course so do not feel I can rate any higher. The apps that were ordered were good but it was the fruit and cheese board. No cooking. A person I ate with ordered the zucchini fritters and they were good. I would like to return and order a meal. The atmosphere is great and the service was very good.

Adela Isovic

The gnocchi! Get the gnocchi. Dip it in the red sauce. Let it change your life. The honey beets were phenomenal, and the the pecan cake was sublime. (Also, several vegan/vegitarian options!) Can you guys open a branch in Chicago? Please?

Abbie Krajewski

Great atmosphere, delicious food, tasty drinks!

Laura Hoff

This is a great place is great for social gatherings, dates, even just a simple dinner. It has a wonderful atmosphere, with a great staff. The food is on the high side, but justified.

Jeff Cox

Great atmosphere, great food

Josh Maurer

Fantastic food and great beers. Loved the Witch Slap!

John Tickle

Great service, food,, and atmosphere.

Sundeep Rambala

A nice place for a small city. Ambience is good. Beer is ok..not great. I ordered signature steak and did not check the price and found out the price with the check

Amanda Green

Very clean, classy, great decor, good to great staff. We shared the beer cheese pretzel bites. I wasn't impressed with the cheese sauce. It wasn't flavorful. We also had duck fat fries?. They were delicious and served with two sauces that complimented them well. The 3rd appetizer we shared was the spinach dip and chips. Tasty dip, strange chips. Overall very happy with the food. I had two cherry Moscow mules and was happy with them but they were very expensive. Oy! The bathroom was clean and comfortable and everything seemed to be in working order. No broken doors or latches, etc. My friends enjoyed the special beers. My overall impression is that Black Sheep has high standards that everyone can appreciate.

Ryan Day

Service was awesome. Food was creative and delicious. And the beer from Clock House is top notch.

John VF

I love this place the menu is always great. I make sure to visit anytime I'm in town.

jilles miedema

Very good food and atmosphere

Erin Schroeder

The food here is great, for the most part. I tend to enjoy my visits most for weekend lunch. I went here on a Friday night with two friends from out of town and our table service (and getting a table at all!) was extremely slow, and the food was sub-par (and for their prices, sub-par food should be unacceptable). The woman who bussed our tables was rude, and several of our appetizer plates never were cleared, even when our entrees arrived. We were polite and didn't make a fuss, but we haven't been back on a busy night since. But weekend? Weekend lunch is where it's at.

Andrew De Haan

Get that blueberry burger! I've had several sandwiches on their menu and it is the best. In my opinion it's worth going there just for that! However, they also do a fantastic job with drinks and they've nailed the decor scheme. It can be a bit loud inside though, so a seat outdoors can be nice if it's reasonable.

Caroline Robinson

Food was delicious, atmosphere is always neat (and they have an awesome patio), service was good as well. This seems to be a CR go to. My friend would give it 5 out of 5 on all account simply because of the RAM salad. Which is amazing. But that's just it. There's only 2 or 3 things that we eat there as it's not real accommodating to meatless or "healthier" options. These grilled avocado tacos were yummy! Could have used a little something more tho! I caved and got the fries and they were droolworthy. #guilty

Jean Goodale

Interesting atmosphere - previously a warehouse. Indoor and patio seating. Had some unique menu offerings. Food was very good. Very nice eye appealing plating presentation of each entree. A good place for a social gathering of friends or family. Prices on the moderately high side.

Justin Herbrand

Food and service was great.

Giacomo Gentile

Good food!

Matt Shannon

Cool looking place food is pretty solid

Amy Lorenz

Great service, neat atmosphere, fabulous food and private dining room is great for large parties. Love the cap'n crunch fish bites and brussel sprouts are fabulous! Great selection of wine, too.

Cindy L

What an awesome place. The building was beautiful. The hostess was very friendly. The wait staff was also friendly and helpful. Service was also quick even with a busy night. The food was wonderful and delicious. I ordered the duck and it came out perfect. My husband ordered the filet and that was perfect and tender. I would come back again.

Bobby Wullner

Atmosphere was very nice. Prices were reasonable. Food was ok/good.

Matt Bergstrom

Really enjoy the environment. It is a very cozy atmosphere with a lot of historical charm and characteristics. Only complaint would be the food menu tends to get a little pricey and out of the ordinary for the typical Midwestern appetite. The beef brisket consistently is overpowered with fruit or other flavors that takes away any essence of smoking or grilling. Staff is fantastic. "Clock house Brewing" which is attached to this establishment has the best beers we've ever experienced in craft brewing.

Lindsey Ungs

We had a great time. We told the wait staff we wanted to sit outside on the patio because we were recording the Iowa game at home and didn't want to hear it. We were promptly seated outside by the lovely fire. We were there for a few minutes when we realized it was playing on the speaker outside. While we were talking about what to do the waiter came out to us and asked if we would like him to shut the game off on the outdoor speaker so we could enjoy it later at home. We were so impressed with his thoughtfulness. Loved the dessert!

Sam Belina

Excellent food, service, and beer selection. The vegan burger was delicious as was the regular burger. If you're craving french fries, I would absolutely recommend visiting this establishment!

Stewart Peterson

Was there for a presentation, but it looks like a pretty cool place to hang out for food and some drinks.

Christopher Kosel

Great, interesting menu! Awesome location as well.

Michael Dodd

Very tasty food and some intriguing drinks to wash it down! First timer, we'll be back.

George Kanz

Everyone from Black Sheep staff we met were very helpful.

James Wray

Took my son here for his birthday. The food and service were great. Going to make this a regular stop.

mary burke

A little pretentious for my tastes, but the rest of the crowd liked it. Noon time, good crowd but not insane. Great ambiance.

Mike Richards

Not a good experience for me. Was excited to give the place a try given all the good reviews. Ordered a Charcuterie Tray to start. Quality of offerings was not good and preparation was poor. Wax ring was left on the cheese for example. I ordered their fish feature for the evening and it was over-cooked. Presentation was strange too with some kind of undercooked pasta. Not impressed...maybe it was an off-day but I likely will not go back.

Todd Moen

This historical architectural space is stunning, well thought-out and remarkabley fabulous!

Eddie Littrell

Food was good. Service could have been better. Waiter acted as if he were in a hurry and almost darting away each time he spoke to us rather than stopping at the table. Gave our food to another table first. Waiter needs to slow down.

nicki dempster

We had a wonderful first time here. We were promptly greeted with a wonderful waitress named Timia. She helped us decide on what appetizer we should get and we devoured the fries! She kept our beers filled and wasn’t pushy with us at all. I noticed she helped clear tables with the busboy too. She definitely made our first experience amazing and we are excited to return sometime soon! Thank you so much Timia, we will ask for you again!

Indraneel Phadke

The Beet Burger is a fantastic vegetarian option! If you need to spice it up a tad, ask for their jalapeño crush! Or just raw fresh jalapeños!

Brad Kasprzak

Wonderful options both with and without meat. Great place for a business lunch

Anthony Flick

My friend and I came here to kill some time before the Clock House brewery opened. The atmosphere was fairly posh, but the price for a beer was reasonable and the staff was friendly. I especially liked the mosaic-style tiling and the clock inlayed at the entrance. Be prepared to pay steakhouse prices for food. It''s on the upper end of things, but still par for the course. Unfortunately, we didn't get to eat, so I can't speak to the quality there. It seems like a great place to take a date for a semi-dressy evening.

Adit Singh

I was here a little while ago but this name sticks out to me so much. As someone from the East Coast, I don’t think I’ve ever had a better meal in my life. On top of that, I think this was also one of the least expensive meals I’ve had. I’ve lived near New York and DC my whole life, and this restaurant is truly better than some Michelin starred ones!

Greg LaRue

Great bloody Mary, great mules, hefty price but worth it.

Brian Berry

Beautiful place that’s easy to make a downtown trip for. Parking available too. This place offers specialty cocktails and off the chart beers from Iowa and other craft beers from all around. Great for business meetings and private business dinners as well. Clockhouse brewery is attached and gives an after hour hangout with friends and family. You won’t be disappointed with their food menu and appetizers! Great for visitors and regulars while in Cedar Rapids!

Howard Vernon

Business meeting. Service is always outstanding. The Crunch Fish Nuggets are delicious.

Russell Hotchkiss

Very nice restaurant.

Monik Mossman

The Black Sheep has such a beautiful atmosphere with a creative changing menu. I have never been disappointed. One of my favorite places to go!

Yuriy P

Good decor. Wheatberry resotto is delicious. Lamb was overcooked and tough.

Stephanie Gonzalez

Did a long lunch with family. Seated quickly. Drinks came quickly. Had an issue with a flat beer but it was immediately rectified. Menu was varying, eclectic, daring. We had the duck fries (amazing), drunken roast beef sandwich, and two people had the Cap'n Crunch fish bites. Everything was fresh, presented well, seasoned even better, and the sauces were all unique and flavorful. Will go there again on my next rip to CR.

Andrew Woodworth

Great drinks and great service! Sriracha grapefruit mule is delicious.

Jack Thooft

I love this place. Fun interesting food. My server was as enthused about the Unique items on the menu as I was.

Travis Offerman

Great food. Beer from clock house is always good.

Anne Tisue

Always good...

Al Remetch

The Black Sheep Social Club is great. It is very trendy with great decor. You feel good just being there. During our lunchtime visit a great sound system was playing just the right mix of tunes to compliment the atmosphere and decor. As far as food goes, at lunch they have a simple menu one would expect from a grill. I liked my extra thick hamburger and my wife enjoyed her vegetarian beets hamburger. She also had sweet potato fries which came with a delicious chipotle sauce. We don’t know what the evening menu or feeling is. But I would recommend visiting at off peek time to get great seating near the bar. I liked it much better than the table and chairs away from the bar. The unique atmosphere even extends to the lobby and restrooms. There is also outside dining. Finally our server was excellent. Friendly and upbeat.

Ron McKay

My hamburger was overcooked, burnt and very dry. On the positive the staff is attentive to your needs.

Benjamin Fuehrer

This is one of our go-to places for date nights. I have never been disappointed with any of the food that we have had here, though the service can be a gamble. I can handle mediocre service if it means great food and drinks.

Sonia Schminke

This is currently my favorite place. Incredible food and great atmosphere!

Savi Tri

Lovely selection of craft and draft beers. Reasonable prices. Locally brewed IPA was very tasty. I did not eat on my visit.

Tim Wilcox

Food was good and different from the average menu items. Try the beer cheese and the coconut lemongrass Moscow mule! The place has a really cool vibe, I'd go back Went here for our wedding anniversary.

Jad El Masri

Really cool and hip interior.

Todd Mostaert

What a fantastic evening. The staff was incredible. A great evening with friends.

Philip Fetter

Excellent food. Attentive staff. Creative menu. Historic building with rustic charm combined with a modern upscale vibe. One of the top places in Cedar Rapids.

Jack Devones

Outstanding food, atmosphere, et al!!!

Monique Wood

The restoration of this restaurant space is amazing. Every time we go I enjoy marveling at the details. We've dined here multiple times because it is close to work & home. We tend to dine at the bar. Service and food have both been hit & miss at times, but when it's good, it's really good, so we keep returning. They've also provided comps on the times they have fallen short. I love how they change-up the menu; I just wish they would post their dinner specials earlier in the day. Often by the time I see something I'd like to try on their Facebook page, we've already chosen our supper.


Food is outstanding, service was the same. Read the brief history available on the menu, and photos on the walls, very interesting

bruce gross

Great bar and food selection... excellent service!

Heather Nekola

Great food, nice atmosphere.

N. L.

Pricey. Food does not have a local flair. Not particularly inspired.

AJ Weaver

When busy service is a little hard to come by but great good and drinks in a city hard to come by

Rick Peugh

I ordered the Smoked Blueberry Burger and it was amazing. The blueberry compote mixed with the goat cheese and jalapeno relish was a complex and delicious flavor that I thoroughly enjoyed 11/10 would eat there again!

Karen Hinkle

Awesome top rate food coxktails staff atmosphere

Anna Dengler

I would not recommend the charcuterie board. We were expecting really good cheese and got cubed Colby Jack and smoked Gouda. I have fancier cheese in my fridge at home... And it was pretty sparse for what you pay for it. Everything else was amazing especially the service!

Antoinette Harrison

My 1st time at this place as we had customer dinner event at the privet room. I was surprised how nice the place is. The service was very good. Our server Mika was amazing. The food was very very good. I would highly recommend this place and come back here for sure.

Eric Oakley

Duck Fat Fries and Lamb Meatballs apps are fantastic, entrees were a little underwhelming ($49 Filet Mignon, $25 Prime Rib). Excellent drinks menu.

Blake Andrews

A great place to have a drink with friends, get a full meal, or both. Home to Clockworks Brewing. The food and atmosphere is some of the best that Cedar Rapids has to offer. My bride had the Ragu and I had the Bone-In Pork Chop. We shared a Lamb Meatballs started and the Blueberry Bread Pudding in Bourbon Cream Sauce. Everything was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Each menu selection was clearly marked for Dairy Free, Gluten Free, and/or Vegan. They also offer a nice variety of drinks. The bar has nice lists of beer, wine, mixed and neat drinks.

Adam Newcomb

One of the best restaurants in Cedar Rapids. Friendly, upscale service. Great menu and reasonably priced. It's connected to a local brewery as well so a very wide selection of beer. Also a fantastic place for lunch as they can always get you in and out quickly. Cocktails are also some of the best I've ever had. Highly recommend.

Shankar Kulumani

Great food and beer selection. The steak was great and cooked very well Also the lamb was very well done with a great crust. The service was very fast and friendly as well. The hot toddy was well made with spices, lemon and whiskey.

Wes Waters

Great creative drinks

Jason Hanson

Great place sweet atmosphere

Mark Wood

Very impressive from the outside. If you drive around the block there is a private lot for parking, but it fills up quickly. Besides from that there is some street parking offered, but I could see how on a Friday night parking could get really problematic. The outside of this place is seriously impressive. Lit torches and lights make for quite the ambiance while walking in. Once inside, the high ceilings and polished floors five off a comfortable, if modern vibe. From the door you can see the bar, and the large tanks where beer is brewed. I came here for a business dinner with a reservation, and the table was set and was seated immediately. Drink menu was thick, and the house IPA I tried was quite good. I'm not sure if it was because we had a newer server, or were a larger group, but service was very slow. However, the food, once it arrived, was impressively plated and tasted very good. I got the cowboy cut pork chop with the creamed corn. Seasoning was very good, the pork was cooked properly and overall, I really enjoyed it. Overall, I'd like to come here in a smaller group and try appetizers. They looked very interesting. Only thing holding back this place, from my experience, was the slow service.

Chris Washington

First time exploring Cedar Rapids and we are very happy we chose Black Sheep for our big lunch option. We spent a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon enjoying the unique drinks from the bar and the appetizers. The Crunch Town Fish Nuggets are made with a blended up Cap'n Crunch breading. You wouldn't know it from the actual dish. It gives a unique local twist. Most reviews recommend the Fish Nuggets and the Duck Fat Fries. We enjoyed both.The drinks are really the main star here. We tried a salted watermelon vodka mule and the brandied pecan old-fashioned. I wouldn't have guessed the latter would be so good, but honestly we are coming back to have these again and try more. The beer menu is also impressive.

Luke Anderson

Awesome food and great crowd!

Jeff Detterman

Great late night happy hour

Heidi Steffen

Great food and great atmosphere

Laurie Lee

Bartender lacked knowledge of dishes and said that potatoes came with prime rib and they do not. Prime rib was good Smoked salmon was overly sweet . Bartender was not attentive. 2 bartenders were at the end of the bar sniffing their armpits It was pretty disgusting. Dissappointing Eve .

Rebecca Reinhart

Great food, expensive, fun atmosphere

Jesse Seydel

It’s was our first experience there, was not happy. We were with another couple, 3 of us got burgers and ordered Mid Rare, not one person received a Mid Rare burger. One was Well the other one was Mid Well and last but not least the 3rd one was Medium on one half and Well on the other half. I work in a kitchen and that’s pretty amazing, it wasn’t even during the rush or busy time. Asked for a Pepsi was asked “is Coke ok?” but your menu says Pepsi products “sorry we just changed to Coke Products”. Overall the only good thing was the wings and the beer. Still waiting on the Bleu Cheese for my wings and the napkins we asked for. Thanks for worst first experience.

Darrell Andersen

Good stuff. Sometimes getting served can be a challenge if not having dinner. Good food for sure!

Brandon Notaro

Excellent location for business dinners or just catching up over some cocktails. The menu is very unique and everything I had was excellent.

John Zahratka

The burger was way to done for the way I ordered it.

Sarah Blakeney

We had Valentine’s dinner here. The food was really good and they have some interesting cocktails. The vine is pretty cool as well. It’s a little pricy but the quality is obviously pretty high

Justin Arner

Had really great hopes! Great beer selection and variety, but I wasn't impressed with my food. It was really good but I expected more for the price

Randy Novak

The food and service are top notch! Be sure to ask about the specials..the chef is creative. This is one of my favorites.

Andrew Bohnenkamp

I really love this spot and I try and go to it whenever I am in the area. The menu is eclectic and you should be able to find whatever suits your taste. The service is second to none, and all of the employees are wonderful and always willing to help you out. The drink menu is also great. You really can't go wrong when you are looking for a nice place to eat in Cedar Rapids.

Jeff Sheets

Had the blueberry burger and it was great. The appetizers are fantastic and they have a great drink selection. Will absolutely be back next time I'm in town.

Alan Buss

The Black Sheep is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Cedar Rapids! It's in a nicely restored and redecorated building in CR's downtown. They have a very unique menu, and excellent service too. The bar itself is really cool - you should really read the menu description of how it was made. I'd highly recommend the Black Sheep, for either a couple or a group!

Chris Bontrager

Friendly staff, great server, nice atmosphere, and good food

Joel Huff

Perfect little restaurant, and with a brewery attached too. Try the fish nuggets, they're weirdly good.

Tony Haddad

Great food and a good Bourbon section.

Luke Myers

Not too bad for Cedar Rapids. A place like this out east would cost twice the price.

Carrie Kelso

Amazing food. Duck fat fries, sweet potato fries, blueberry burger, it's all delicious!

Diane H

This is a great place to dine. I enjoyed the food. The atmosphere was amazing. The service was perfect. I would go back anytime!

Nobe Crocker

This place did not disappoint. The place is huge, a bit kitschy, with a slight Willa Wonka steampunk kind of feel but very modern. Very cool, if I were a local I could see me hanging out here. Good beer list but an amazing cocktail list with a lot of really unique drinks- sriracha grapefruit Moscow Mule, anyone? The number of mules was a bit ridiculous, easily more than a dozen types.

Margie L

Great service from Hayden and pastry chef, Toby, made the simple Sunday we requested especially delicious and colorful!

Gary Winter

Ordered rack of lamb and pesto, both were horrible. The lamb was very tough, gave us another rack and it wasnt done and still super tough! The pesto had no flavor, needed something to spice it up. Will not go back!

Bob Thompson

The atmosphere and the Manhattans were excellent. We wanted to like this place, but the service was very poor. We received lunch menus rather than dinner menus. Drinks took forever, and the server was late on everything. After delivering our food she never returned to check if our meals were ok.

Laura Bucklin

Had the best birthday date here with my boyfriend. Kierstin was great at making suggestions from the menu and making me feel special on my b-day! Great meal... great drinks!

Laura O'Connor

I was in NYC and Chicago in the last week and this place rivaled some of the best from those cities. Stunning interior, varied and delicious menu and reasonable prices. Great location, easy parking. I'm a fan!

Christophe Granger

Great beers. Food was good.

Larry Meyer

All four of us at the table loved our meals, very nice atmosphere and good beer... There you have it!

Brian Young

Beautiful decor. Terrific staff.

sarosh kulkarni

Amazing place to go with friends. Very friendly staff.

DaNeKa 50

I once thought highly of this place until tonight. Yeah it was a busy Friday evening. Nice out. Kelly C. was in town and Benz was on ten with the cider event. Anyway, we thought black sheep would be great place to end our evening. We get there and they said for our group would only be 20/30 mins...they sat us promptly without a reservation (which explains my 2 stars). The food...(I’ve ate here more than once) here was disappointing. Unbelievably disgusting. meal was. It was so bad I thought it was a personal joke. The duck fat fries...burnt. The filet tenderloin...over “well done” (I’d asked for med well...too much?)—it was burnt. No I didn’t complain...we were out with my partners friends so I didn’t want to draw attention. gut hurts so bad (figuratively speaking) by how disappointed I am about this dinner. Black sheep has ruin what was once a pleasant experience. What a shame.

Peggy Warren

Kierstin was our server and she was great! She gave awesome suggestions, the food came quickly and was delicious! Try the duck fat fries they will change your life! Thanks for an amazing experience!

Tom Suchomel

Cool place, nice atmosphere good selection of tap beers. Duck was very good. They have an appetizer of fish nuggets breaded in Cap'n Crunch that was excellent.

rodney kight

In a city where foodies go to die - this is actually pretty darn good. Pricy for what it is / but considering their competition (non/existent) it’s understandable. Great Mule cocktail list, the food menu is usually varied and they make everything on it well. It’s easily the best restaurant in Cedar Rapids - in fact that gap is huge.

Dusty Weeks

Duck fat fries and good beer. Servers are typically knowledgeable and friendly. The menu stays pretty fresh, and the atmosphere strikes a nice balance between upscale and relaxed.

Wilbert Aikin

Had dinner at this excellent upscale restaurant in the downtown area on a recent visit with my sister. Enjoyed a special cocktail during a short wait at the bar before being seated in a very comfortable booth. Just had to try the coffee & chicory encrusted pork chop since I'd never seen that on a menu before. I was not disappointed - it was delicious! And the service was very good.

Sigurdur Gislason

Super good food. Great service. Stopped by for late dinner. Great Duck fat fries and chicken wings. Burgers all perfectly done and tasted great. Reccomend to try it out!

Minga Wiegand

Our experience was ok. I thought the prices were expensive for what we got. The menu is small, which is actually nice. The duck was good, but the steak offered is a cheap, tuff cut. We we're looking for a new restaurant and it was ok to try. Black Sheep will not be on my - have to go back list.

Janie Corey

Service was attentive and informative. Beautiful interior and worth a visit just for that. My sister is a vegan and got the vegan burger. Somewhere I had read a complaint about how the vegan patty "fell apart," but she pointed out that's how they often are since there's no animal fat holding them together, and she's had many like that. I had a regular burger and requested that it be cooked well-done, which it was perfectly -- no pink and not overcooked. I definitely will return as I want to try other menu items. If you "like" their Facebook page, you can get notifications of their specials as they do add unique menu items AND have guest chefs. This is a welcome addition to the downtown Cedar Rapids restaurant scene. If you are watching $$$, then try them for lunch. But I do want to splurge on a dinner sometime in the future as the entrees look delicious.

Rachel Van Tomme

Walleye nuggets are fantastic

Kellie lopez

It was so beautiful inside, they were so nice to my friends and i....the food was great! I will definatley be going back!

Catherina Gaynor

Great place with a awesome atmosphere


OMG!! Duck fat fries... Everything was so good!!! I ate with my eyes and not my stomache here. I was so hungry and ordered more than I needed. My 2 friends also got the most yummy items!!! I can't wait to go back!!!

Sandra Ashley

Very good, nice atmosphere.

Jim Bauer

I've experienced their hospitality on more than one occasion, and always enjoyed it. Interesting mix of clientele, great atmosphere, and super friendly wait staff. The bartenders are mixologists of an excellent order. The various varieties of Moscow Mules all deserve sampling. Nice mix of televisions for current sporting events . Parking can be somewhat challenging on the weekends, but I feel the place shines best during the week, when conversations can be had and the interactions a bit better defined. Having a brewery on site adds to the charm.

M Reaves

Great restaurant and bar near the river. Beautiful inside... this place looks brand new. They are connected to the brewery. Haley was our server and she was good - great sense of humor. The burgers and salads were excellent. The hazy IPA was fine. And dessert

Catie Griffiths

Nice food, OK service but not flexible

John Rosenkrans

Had the burger - excellent flavor, perfectly medium. Companion really enjoyed the sweet potato fries. Very casual.

Sandy Ward

Good food nice decor

Ray Parks

Great food. The captain crunch fish bits are a must have.

Kelli Hudson

Great food, excellent location, wonderful staff. It's beautiful inside and has a great atmosphere.

Scott Driscoll

Great place for pre-Shinedown concert drinks and food!!!


Should be more accommodating for a place that is so expensive. Refill waters without asking twice. Inform customers of price differences when telling side options. Food tastes good but for the price service should be better

Marci Bowden

Awesome vibe and great food. Some of the best drinks in town. Highly recommend.

Stephanie Reddersen

Could tell the Baked Manicotti was frozen. Sent it back. Chicken picatta was much better.

Scott Brooks

Service terrible, staff not real busy just needed begged to get a drink. Prime Rib recommended over Chop very stringy and cool tem

Donald J. Trump

This place Makes America Great Again!!

Bill Cheatham

Three words... “Duck Fat Fries”- Double fried potatoes, white cheddar, Bacon, green onion, pepper flakes, tomato jam, chicory aioli. Our first visit to Cedar Rapids and looking for a nice place for lunch. They did not disappoint. Very cool restaurant/bar with a fantastic atmosphere. Waitstaff was very nice and helpful walking us through a very inventive and fun menu. The food was great and just an overall cool place to hangout downtown.
