About Bump's Restaurant

At Bump's Restaurant we focus on whole, raw ingredients and from scratch cooking techniques.  We're located at 1380 Melrose Avenue in Iowa City, inside the main entrance of the new Nagle Family Clubhouse at Finkbine Golf Course.  

Bump's Restaurant is named for Chalmers “Bump” Elliott, who was director of men's athletics at the University of Iowa from 1970-1991, an era when the Hawkeyes won 34 Big Ten and 11 NCAA championships. He has been described as the architect of Iowa Athletics, and his foundation of hard work, loyalty, and dedication continues to cement the success of Iowa Athletics.  He lives on in Hawkeye Nation as a true legend.
