“One of my favorite places listed on here! Easily the best atmosphere, decor, and well put together bar/restaurant. Much more classy and up scale compared to the rest. Slightly expensive for bar & restaurant but well worth it for the unique food and experience. Most people arrive here for a late night dinner and turn it into late hour drinks. ”

“Cobble Hill is probably the finest restaurant in Cedar Rapids. It has a distinct New York atmosphere, and the food is outstanding. Be prepared to pay for it - drinks, dinner and tip will probably be around $100 for two, but worth it if you are looking for a really classy night out.”

“La Cantina has "OK" Mexican food, but has great (and cheap) Margaritas as well as Salsa dancing on some nights. Be sure to call ahead and find out if they are hosting Salsa lessons and/or dancing - it's a fun time and very close to our house (about 10 minutes drive). https://www.facebook.com/LaCantinaBarAndGrill/”
