    Had a breakfast scramble type of thing that was delicious! I wanted to try a pie shake, but was too full!

    I've always loved Hamburg! I'm an Iowa City native and though it can be a long wait (especially on Sundays) it's totally worth it!

    The service is subpar at best the establishment lacked cleanliness and it took them a hour to get two burgers with fries that it was nothing to right home about. In conclusion I won't be returning

    Classic diner. Found the burgers to be a little dry but overall not that bad. This place has a lot of character and when I came there were a lot of women here. The staff was friendly. Pie was good.

    The Pie Shakes, holy cow, check the menu board for pies available, instantly made into a ginormous shake. I had "chocolate bourbon pecan" - simply amazing! The best shake I've ever had! Try one!

    The best breakfast joint in Iowa City! We eat here every time we're in town. The biscuits and gravy are amazing, and the non-greasy home fries are cooked to perfection!

    Excellent breakfast spot! Don't be fooled by it's simplistic interior, Hamburg Inn draws nationally known politicians scrambled with the Iowa academia crowd. Fine dining in the Heartland.

    Iowa City's political claim to fame. You aren't a real politician unless you grab a meal at Hamburg while you're in town.

    Why settle for one desert, when you can get two in the same cup? That's the philosophy behind the vaunted Hamburg Inn's collection of sugar-rich pie shakes. Read more

    Best place for breakfast in Iowa City! I love the omelets they are the perfect size and filled just right! Be prepared to wait though, the wait on the weekends can be as long as an hour

    "Best Breakfast in Iowa City". This is a fact, it's received this title through a population vote since the 90's. They serve all meals, and breakfast all day. All visiting Presidents have eaten here.

    Great restaurant that has awesome burgers & is relatively cheap. Also, Monday's special is 10% off your meal when you wear a "Burg Inn" T-shirt.

    The peach pie shake was outstanding. And if you're here during presidential primary season, make sure to put a coffee bean in the jar of your candidate of choice.
