I'll be spending a month in Sioux City for work, and while I'll be working 7 day weeks with long hours, I think I'll get an hour or two here and there, especially at night.

Is there a part of town I should go to for the best food/drink/people watching that the city has to offer?

Any places I should avoid as traps or just plain bad?

thanks.

There is a row of bars/restaurants that aren't too bad. They lie near the Clarion Hotel downtown. Same street as Clarion I believe. Sorry I have a bad memory.

What we used to call 'lower fourth street' when I lived there has been rehab'd and has several nice eating and dringkng places now. A couple of other nice restaurants are Bev's and (across the river) Cahill's at the Marina.
Green gables for some 1930's type sioux city flavor. Tasttee inn and out for loosemeat sandwiches (an iowa specialty).

Make sure you don't refer to it as a "sloppy joe" when you're in there.

If you have a few hours to spend in Sioux City, use it to go to Omaha instead.

I think Mnhky1 has it wrong. If you have a few hours to spend in Sioux City, you use it to go to Sioux Falls.
