Pullman has a very nice selection of beers and expert bartenders. The menu is a no nonsense collection of familiar comfort food and some specialty items. Very moderately priced for the quality, super atmosphere, but a small venue. Be prepared to wait -- but it...More

Super happy this place was still opened at 9:45!! We realized that most restaurants in Iowa City close at 10pm. I had the best chicken sandwich and wedge salad in a long time. The salad dressing on the wedge salad is homemade and it should...More

Great food for a late lunch, best of all they serve breakfast all day. They also serve the Impossible burger if you’re looking for a good vegetarian option. Appetizers were yummy and the menu had a great variety.

This place has promise (or maybe I should say had promise). A little exotic, even. Or at least the menu seems to promise this. But the restaurant is crowned, noisy and the food did not fulfill its promise. The wide arrange of cocktails might bring...More

We celebrated a birthday there and though a bit loud, we had a great time. I expected the Mo Burger to be uniquely tasty but just found it to be heavy and rich. The condiments were not complimentary. We had two other dishes, including a...More
