Food Trippin' in Northeast Iowa: Savor the Flavor in Clayton County

With a population of just over 18,000, and no stoplights, it may be surprising to learn what a diverse offering of dining experiences Clayton County offers.

Taste the local cuisine of over 70 local restaurants, bars, cafes, bakeries, delis, and more! Travel via the Scenic Bluff Byway and savor the flavor along the way.

Clayton County is full of unique cuisine. Many places utilize locally grown food to truly taste the flavor of Northeast Iowa.

Start your morning off in Elkader and treat yourself to a hot or iced espresso or coffee drink at Treats on Bridge St. Bistro.

After a morning full of exploring the wonders of Clayton County, stop for lunch at The Buffet at the Lady Luck Casino or try to eat the big tenderloin at the St. Olaf Tavern.

Finish your day by heading to Gunder to visit the Irish Shanti to see if you can conquer the Gunder Burger. Or maybe split it with your travel companion so you can save room for dessert!

Grab some ice cream at Sadie’s Sweet Shop in McGregor or a piece of homemade pie at Back Home Country Cookin’ in Strawberry Point.

Visit Schera’s Algerian-American Restaurant, Fennellys’ Irish Pub, Thai-1-On, and Latino’s Mexican Restaurant to enjoy international cuisine.

The Edgewood Locker can process your meat, cater your event, and they have an outlet store to taste and purchase their award winning products.

Stop by the Clayton County Development Group in Elkader to pick up your 2016 Food Trippin’ Card which has all the culinary options in the county on it. Pick up the 2016 Calendar of Events card and the Clayton County brochure to see all that is offered. Or check out the online restaurant listings here.
