If there’s one thing Iowa is known for in its dining scene, it’s great family restaurants. So many of the Hawkeye State’s dining destinations have family-friendly food and even a few bonus attractions to keep the kids amused. But what are we to do when we need a night away from the kids? It turns out there’s a great adults-only restaurant in Iowa – and it happens to be located in the same building as one of the best family restaurants in the state! Wildwood Smokehouse & Saloon, a popular barbecue joint, welcomes all-ages – until 10 p.m., when it transforms into a unique live-music and entertainment venue. Same great food, none of the kids, and a wild and crazy atmosphere that’s the perfect place for the grownups to cut loose and enjoy a night straight out of the Wild West.
