From their web site: We feature fresh, never frozen, black Angus beef from local farmer Ed Smith of Columbus Junction. Our fries are hand-cut daily, seasoned to perfection, and make the perfect accompaniment to any of our gourmet burgers, chicken sandwiches, or homemade black bean burgers. At the bar, all ten of our draft lines are dedicated to the finest Iowa craft beers and cider. We devote one draft line to up and coming Iowa breweries and the rest draw local favorites such as Millstream, Peace Tree, Sutliff Cider, and Court Avenue. Stop on by and taste for yourself these great Iowa creations!

All of our menu items are freshly prepared with quality ingredients. We serve lunch and dinner and we have recently expanded our menu to include burgers, fries and wings.

From their web site: Micky’s Irish Pub opened its doors some 30-plus years ago with the idea to give Iowa City a small, comfortable and cozy place to share good food, good drink and good company at very reasonable prices. We’ve continued that tradition over the years without a whole lot of changes. Our menu has expanded but we still maintain an emphasis on fresh food prepared per-order.
From their web site: John’s Grocery Inc. is a marriage of the traditional corner grocery store and epicurean oasis. The building John’s Grocery is located in was built in 1848 to serve as a small dry goods store in the then five year-old frontier town of Iowa City.
We strive to make our food fresh and from scratch. This effort has lead us to cure, smoke, and oven-roast our own nitrate-free meats. We bake fresh pastries and fresh bread every day.
