Fine Dining Is Just Around the Block at Butcher Block Steakhouse
The owners of Riley’s have branched out into a new steakhouse concept at 1117 First Ave. SE.
The Butcher Block Steakhouse is next door to the Sip N’ Stir, a by Coe College and just a few blocks away from the original Riley’s Cafe.
Butcher Block Steakhouse is open daily at 11 a.m. and offers steakhouse staples such as sirloin, ribeye and New York
Strip, plus chicken, ribs, burgers and salads. There is also a full service bar which features a very attractive aquarium for your viewing pleasure.
General Manager Drew Munson said the concept was inspired by the lack of independent steakhouses in Cedar Rapids, and will highlight local foods, spirits and beers.
Customers are able to dine in a cozy bar area, including interesting dining room filled with booths made from church pews, or a small diner-like nook.
