Blairs Ferry will be home to another great restaurant in the next few weeks!

First, it was Rock Top, then it was Axel's, and now it's 30hop! That giant building with the upstairs patio over on Blairs Ferry Rd in Cedar Rapids has a new tenant and we're hoping this one will last longer than the first two!

30hop is new to the city of Cedar Rapids, but not to Coralville. Their location in the Iowa River Landing has been open for just over four years now. Their official website states:

"Craft beer, cocktails, New American fare & a claim to fame rooftop – if you’ve joined us before you know there’s an unmistakable energy the moment you walk through our doors. We revel in being unique yet approachable providing constantly rotating craft beers, seasonal menus, and an atmosphere that’s all about celebrating good times!"

If you haven't been able to make it over to the Coralville location, you won't have to wait much longer for the Cedar Rapids restaurant to open! According to their Facebook page, "doors should be opening in the next 2 weeks."

I know some people, including myself, have been wondering why the new restaurant isn't open yet, but 30hop says there were some unforeseen challenges. A post on their Facebook from August 8th reads:

"Our team is working around the clock to get our new Cedar Rapids location open for all you awesome people! There’s always a lot of red tape & unforeseen challenges when opening a new restaurant, and we truly appreciate all of the enthusiasm & support we’ve received so far."

They even posted a few photos of their progress:

30hop has not announced an exact opening date, but we will update this story once the official announcement is made. We cant wait!

Here are some photos of the delicious-looking food that the Coralville location has to offer:
