The Beach-Themed Restaurant In Iowa Where It Feels Like Summer All Year Long
The small town of Manson, Iowa is pretty much the definition of landlocked. This town of fewer than 2,000 people has no rivers, creeks, lakes or streams… all 3.18 square miles of Manson are made up of land. How is it possible, then, that the best beach bar in Iowa is located in this tiny town? Well, you’ll just have to see for yourself!
You can't tell from the outside, but Shore Side Pub & Grub in Manson is the best place to go for a touch of summer in the cold, long winter months.
The beach bar's address is
1029 Main St, Manson, IA 50563.
When you walk in, you'll immediately notice the tiki bar! Shore Side serves up delicious tropical-inspired frozen drinks, along with your favorite beach beers and cocktails.
You'll notice the walls are lined with beachy decor - and of course, because we're in Iowa, a few College Football flags.
Even on the coldest days of the year, the staff at Shore Side are thinking summer - and it shows!
Their menu consists of beachy bar favorites, like their pulled pork or house nachos...
... unbelievable loaded waffle fries, topped with jalapenos, ground beef, lettuce, and tons of cheese...
and of course, tacos! Join them on Taco Tuesday to try them with all the fixings.
For a heartier meal, order a Rodeo Burger, topped with cheese, bacon, onion straws and BBQ sauce.
Shore Side's prime rib dinner is one of their most popular dishes, and it's always made with the best, hand-selected cuts of fresh and local Iowa beef.
So if winter is getting you down, head over to Manson's own Shore Side Pub, where you'll be whisked away to the beach - at least for a little while!
