This is a great sports bar. Definitely an Iowa bar. My son goes to the University of Iowa so I've come to this bar a few times with him to watch the game. The food isn't bad, a little better than regular bar food and the drinks are good. This place is always a great time.

Back in town for a high school reunion. We got wrist bands, and open bar for three hours. It was a good atmosphere to see old pals and I had a great time. I had never been here before but I liked it. Food is suprisingly yummy. Check out the beergarden its cool.

I dont like John Barleycorn at all. This bar is a good example of what happens when frat boys run wild. They are always crowded, the music is terrible, the other customers are obnoxious and the drink prices are outrageous. I dont recommend you go here.

This place is terrible. Its dirty, smell and filled with annoying drunk people. I don't understand what the appeal is but I cant stand the place. The only time I ever went in I saw junk all over the floor, waste all over the bathroom and a long line for over priced watered down drinks. I am never ever going back there.

Well, I've been to this bar a number of times with friends that come up from being at U of I down in Cham/Urbana. Needless to say, this bar caters to the frat vibe. The food here is amazing though, so getting there a little eary can be recommended to get a seat. Not to mention the overwhelming stench of A&F and Lacoste cologne could ruin anyones appetite. The bar is usually fun, but I've been witness to a few fights and scuffles in and outside of the bar which makes it less an enjoyable place. When it isn't as packed, it's definately more fun and you don't leave with your ears ringing (they BLAST club music) or some injury from ""brahs"" stumbling about. Price is decent, but you can easily go to most other bars down the block for a cheaper beer. Overall, I'd recommend it, because it's usually variable if it is or isn't fun, and I can't blame that on the bar, it's more the people that show up.
