The menu is extensive. The Nachos are GREAT! Food was great! Tap beer $5 each. Service is prompt and friendly. If you look under 30 bring your ID.

While the service was not up to par for late night snacks, the food was great. Prices were reasonable. We have been here in the past and the service was great so this visit will not change our opinion of the place.

I asked ahead of time about gluten free options. Upon my arrival no one could give me any definite help regarding what I could eat, the waitress followed me around apologizing but not helping. When I told her she was not helping she proceeded to stand behind me and make faces at me with another hostess. After an extensive wait... More

We come to Champps for great food and service, but always sit in bar area so not to have noisy children. Tonight there were two over active loud kids banging against the booth, which kept pushing on us. We finally moved to another seat. Kids don't belong in the bar.

Nice place to grab a quick bite. The food is standard American and the service is good. There were lots of TVs showing different games all at the same time. Service was quick and friendly.

Champps was part of the Best Western Plus Hotel in Dubuque. I was in a room for two nights for a business trip. I ordered a French Dip sandwich with fries for dinner one night.

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!
