Wells on Wells is a fairly low-key bar with two flat screens, plenty of tables and a proudly displayed Iowa Hawkeyes flag. On the night of our bar crawl (a rainy Tuesday), their special included 1/2 price appetizers. Naturally, this was excuse enough to indulge in some steak nachos, pretzel roll bites and cheese dip, and pita and spinach dip. All delicious and all very reasonably priced.

Also during our bar crawl, their draft pints, excluding Guinness, were $3.50. As it should be, with a name like Wells on Wells, their selection of beer on tap went beyond Old Style and Bud Light and including some Magic Hat and other options.The bar has a small patio in front as well as a sizable beer garden in the back that’s filled with canopied seating areas and benches. Downside: no Malört and a single-stall ladies bathroom.
