February 21, 2018, Lansing, Iowa — Safe House Saloon in Allamakee County is proud to be included in the Iowa Tourism Office’s list of “99 Counties, 99 Restaurants.”
Nick Hammell, owner, Safe House Saloon commented, “We are really excited to see ourselves on this list with so many other great establishments. Iowa has so much to offer to locals or tourists alike, and we are proud to be considered part of that culture.”
The list includes one restaurant from every county and covers a wide range of dining options and specialty dishes. Travelers will find best burgers in Fairfield, top tenderloins in Prairie City, super steaks in Mason City, farm-to-table in Orient, fine dining in Cedar Rapids, cultural cuisines in Elkader, eclectic eats in Des Moines, comfort food in Balltown and so much more. “Food is synonymous with travel. Not only do people travel for the specific purpose of sampling unique, local cuisine, but when people travel for any reason, they’re also interested in authentic dining experiences,” said Shawna Lode, manager of the Iowa Tourism Office. “Iowa’s diverse ethnic communities, range of small towns and urban centers, and a strong agricultural industry combine to make our state home to some of the most interesting and memorable breakfast, lunch and dinner opportunities in the nation.”
