Pur server, Krista, was very attentive. We decided to do a series of appetizers, consisting of poutine w bacon, pork nachos, mussels and dozen wings, split between... More

Menu is eclectic and everything is good. My favorites are the chicken wings and the pad thai. There are always lively people and good energy in the place.

It's located on the corner of a residential area. We went on a Saturday night so it was busy even though it was only... More

Passing through Dubuque and found this restaurant on social media. Trendy place that feels comfortable. Wisconsin-style cheese curds fried in a tempura batter were crispy and melted in your mouth. Seared Ahi tuna was perfectly done and presented nicely with crisp sautéed yellow squash and onions; and the coup d'gras, hand-cut french fries sprinkled with truffle oil and generously dusted...

Really yummy! The veggie burgers are a homemade patty! It is so rare to find that in any restaurant. So often I feel like the veggie patty option on menus is just an appeasement. Sure we'll keep some frozen,gmo veggie burgers in the back of the freezer in case we get one of those weird veggie eaters. This patty was... More

Full properly formatted review on my blog Yin's Beige Box. Omakase Sushi at Zipang in Calgary, the chocolate cake at Q Haute Cuisine also in Calgary, and the fried cheese curds at Copper Kettle in Dubuque. What these foods have in common is that they are some of the best things I have ever tasted in my life. I have... More

Been here a few times, seem like it is always busy, but they find seat seat for you every time! Food is great, beer is Ice cold, and the service is great! It is off the main drag so you have to look for it! Will go back again!

Meet some family here for a Sunday lunch. The place was very busy which is a good sign. A nice selection on the menus with something for everyone. All 5 of us enjoyed our meals and the service was very good considering there were only 2 young women working the tables. They were non stop and very pleasant.
