Dinner with a View

Beer, Wine, & Cocktails

Council Bluffs' first craft brewery, Full Fledged Brewing Company, opened up in the summer of 2019. It has turned into a community gathering place to enjoy a pint and meet up with some friends. It's conveniently located in the Mid-America Center Entertainment District, making it the perfect place to stop by after an event, conference, or tournament. They brew all of their beer on-site and have up to 18 different craft beers on tap.

The Historic 100 Block of West Broadway has several bars that have their own unique feel and focus like The BLK Squirrel named after the unique black squirrel population that calls Council Bluffs home. Locals rave about Barley's, a community staple, the creative cocktails at Caddy's Kitchen & Cocktails, the relaxed and modern vibe at Jefferson's Lounge, and the atmosphere at Glory Days Sports Bar & Grill.

Wine drinkers will be happiest trying out Cellar19 Wine & Deli, Ditmars Orchard & Vineyard, Pioneer Trail Orchard & Pumpkin Patch, Breezy Hills Vineyard & Winery, or Prairie Crossing Vineyard & Winery.
