McGregor, Iowa has a new restaurant that you absolutely must check out! Kari and Andy Waterman took over Uncle Sam's Saloon within McGregor's Landing and have renamed and reopened it as Backwoods Bar and Grill. The rustic atmosphere, great service and some of the tastiest BBQ in Northeast Iowa will have you always coming back!
Backwoods will take you on a food trip with their menu! Start off with an appetizer such as white cheddar cheese curds, jalapeno poppers, or beer battered onion rings. Yum! Or go for the ~healthier~ option with fried green beans (it’s still a vegetable!)
Dive into the main course with nachos, wings, pizza, wraps or sandwiches including the Philly brisket or smoked pulled pork. My stomach is growling! Backwoods also has dinners such a cod, catfish, steak and fried chicken.
Hurry in before the end of March to play bar trivia on every Thursday night from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Bring your friends and family, enjoy a beverage of choice and some delicious appetizers, and test your knowledge!
Make McGregor a place on your bucket list to visit this summer. On the mighty Mississippi River and near Pikes Peak State Park, McGregor has things to do for the whole family. And of course, a great place to eat at Backwoods Bar and Grill!
