Holy TV overload. I was in awe of the number of TVs above the bar. You can simultaneously watch NASCAR, football and hockey. The food was good, and there was plenty to keep me entertained.
My first experience with Blues on Grand was this past winter when a friend from Minneapolis played a gig with his band. It's an intimate venue, and there is not a bad seat in the house. Just remember that the bar is cash only!
Don't let the name fool you, there is more to this joint than chicken. The pizzas are excellent, and the burgers are hearty. Great place to come catch a game, or enjoy a round of drink with friends in a casual atmosphere.
Carl's is like the Cheers of Sherman Hills. It's a dive bar by all definitions with a very "come as you are" attitude. You never know what you will encounter on a night at Carl's but you will definitely have a good time in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Sports Page is a popular destination in Indianola. It's more than just a sports bar, it a gathering spot for all occasions. On the weekends it's more of a bar, and on the weeknights it's more of a family setting.
I used to eat at Java Joe's nearly every weekday for lunch. The food offerings are pretty standard soups and sandwiches with vegetarian and vegan friendly options. I highly recommend the Ginger Curry Pita. Sandwiches are served with Fritos and a pickle all for around $5.
Great place to study, read or use the free Wi-Fi and surf the web.
I was down visiting a friend in Austin, and had my first experience with breakfast tacos at Juan In A Million. Nowhere else can you get a breakfast taco that even compares to what they offer.
The Lift offers a great martini selection, and doubles as an art gallery. The atmosphere is very "chill" and the Bloody-tini is to die for. Wednesday nights are 1/2 price martini night.
The High Life serves a pre 1979 beer selection that includes PBR, Hamm's, Schlitz and of course the "Champagne of Beers," Miller High Life. You can get a cheeseburger basket complete with tator tots for a modest $2.99 or for the more adventurous appetites liver and onions, or a grilled Spam sandwich.
The High Life's close proximity to Principal Park also makes it a great place to stop before or after a game.
Located in downtown Des Moines, next door to the High Life Lounge.
The bar offers an unparalleled beer selection. With over 100 beers on tap you are sure to find something you like.
