Every summer, the Corridor Business Journal does a community-voted contest called "The Best of the Corridor." According to the website, the list is meant to be "a celebration of our region’s most beloved businesses." Earlier this month, the CBJ revealed all of their 2024 winners!

Big Grove Brewery was named the number one pick in the 'Best Brewery/Winery/Distillery' category, and the Cedar Rapids Big Grove at 170 1st St SW was recognized as the 'Best New Restaurant.' It was also first runner-up in the 'Best Place for Business Lunch' category! Here are the rest of the restaurants that were chosen as 2024 winners:
