I'm not sure what was "Iowa Bistro" about this (though they do have a "maid rite clone" on the menu) but we had a very good lunch here. Quick, friendly service, great sandwiches and wraps at a low cost. Easy to get to.

Have eaten here a few times over the past month. Have eaten on a Friday evening, (their fish fry night), as well as a regular weeknight. On all occasions we were very pleased with the quality of the food, great, friendly service by their staff, and reasonable prices. Come early if you are going for the fish fry, usually quite...

Hubby and I are here this evening. Food was delicious, prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. I especially liked the mashed potatoes, just like momma use to make.

Been there several times when I'm in Clearwater. Right on the main drag, but you might miss it. Right next to the original Hooters. Decor: small town pub, but outside patio area which was nice. Service: exceptional! Bartender and waitstaff were so friendly and very helpful. Parking: fine. It seems you can park in the Hooters lot without a problem... More

Hey, when they say "Iowa" anywhere, it's worth a peek. In this case, I was expecting to see something on a wall that had a Tiger Hawk or even a Cy Rooster. Instead, the closest thing is a sandwich that supposed to be like a Maid Rite. Ok, I get it. It's not a sports bar, it's not a find... More

Went on a Tuesday night for dinner with a couple friends, were seated immediately. I ordered a hamburger and a couple sides. Burger was cooked as requested. The burger was very good, above average. The cole slaw and fries....nothing special.

We were driving through Clearwater and headed to the beach and decided at the last minute to stop for lunch. Great food that was fast and huge portions. My picky son loved the kid's shepherd pie and our waitress was really nice and helpful.
