It's a big week for Home Port in Cedar Rapids! The bar and restaurant has officially reopened for business after two months of being closed.

As of yesterday, August 29th, Home Port has started welcoming customers again at 624 Center Point Rd NE in Cedar Rapids. The bar closed back in July because they wanted to do a few upgrades. The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports:

"With construction nearby on Center Point Road, Home Port closed to take advantage of the slow period and renovate. Inside, an all-new interior features a restaurant-forward focus with a new kitchen."

In addition to the interior and exterior improvements, Home Port also has a brand new menu with a variety of appetizers, wraps and sandwiches, salads, and burgers. Items include bar fare like nachos, wings, onion rings, and pretzel bites, the Jalapeno Grilled Cheese, the BLT Salad, the Midwestern Burger, and Chase's Tenderloin. Here's a sneak peek of the Popper Burger, which includes bacon, pepperjack cheese, jalapeno poppers, and sweet Thai chili sauce:

Home Port's website says that Cup Night is on Monday & Wednesday nights, where you can buy a reusable cup for $5 and get $2 Busch Light or well re-fills for the rest of the evening. Wednesday is also karaoke night beginning at 9 p.m.

Home Port's new hours are Sunday through Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Wednesday & Thursday from 11 a.m. to midnight, and Friday & Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. You can follow their new Facebook page for the latest updates and help them name their new mascot HERE.
