About Saint Burch Tavern:

When we [owners Cory Kent, Nate Kaeding, Matt Swift, Ben Smart, and Doug Goettsch] were approached by the previous owners of Atlas about purchasing the business, we were incredibly excited.  What a great location with the Pentacrest and the University of Iowa in the background, a great patio, and one of the first buildings you see as you enter downtown Iowa City!  The only question was, what kind of concept do we put here?

We have had this supper club tavern idea in our heads for a while.  The one thing we knew we were going to have is a raw bar.  Yup, a raw bar.  If Chicago can do fresh seafood in the middle of the country, why can’t we?  Now the raw bar is one of the elements that makes our business unique in the Iowa City area. We also have one of the nicest patios downtown, along with the basement lounge we call the Den. The Den is available for private functions, including business meetings, rehearsal dinners, parties, and more.

The name Burch comes from Burch the Bear, the original mascot of our Iowa football team in the early 1900’s.  It’s a fun way to tie ourselves to the University we all love.

Our mission is to provide a timeless experience while showcasing and celebrating some of the regions finest farmers, distillers, brewers, and food artisans. We hope you_ll join us for a great meal soon!
