I visited Champps for dinner on a very busy Saturday night. Lots of college football games, including Iowa vs. Wisconsin. The place was packed! Even so, my family was seated quickly and service was top-notch. We had drinks immediately, and our food was served quickly....More

We don't typically visit sports bars but we dined here because we were traveling with family. The menu offers some interesting choices and the Kung Pao Lettuce Wraps were excellent.

Fortunate to meet John Pezino, general manager, plus Chris the chef. Nothing too much trouble. Go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Two top guys, oh, and by the way, the food was great too. Will always remember the fish and chips...More

I had a craving for a salad for lunch. Champs has a nice Tex Mex Caesar salad. I had it with blackened salmon. The salmon was blackened and fried just right. Nice salad not overdressed with Caesar. Some thin tortilla strips mixed in. I would...More

Always good food & good service. I generally get the salmon or steak tacos which are both awesome. Portions are great (you can usually get 2 meals out of 1). We frequent here generally about once per month.

We were pleased that the restaurant is quiet and we could enjoy our meal without having to raise our voices to speak with one another. We were surprised at the limited menu selection. However, our food tasted good and met our expectations.

Had a very good server there, and the food and drinks came out promptly and as ordered. Quality of food was just OK, considering the cost, which was appropriate.

The slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team. Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door.The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and with 30 draught beers and 30 flat-screens, we're the best place to watch the game!
