Hey There, Neighbor!

Either/Or offers elevated yet familiar American fare with a focus on quality over all else. We refuse to do things the easy way. Our burgers feature 100% Iowa Certified Angus Beef ground in-house by our culinary team daily. Our steaks are trimmed by hand to ensure maximum flavor and tenderness. We fly to California each year to personally select and harvest our caviar. All of our cocktails feature juice hand-squeezed by our bar team. Our beer list features a curated list of familiar favorites along with exclusive out-of-state offerings. Never frozen, bagged, or duplicated; if we’re not proud of it, we don’t serve it.

Either/Or sits on a spacious 1.5 acres on Grand Avenue just down the street from Val Air Ballroom and historic Valley Junction. E/O’s massive outdoor space includes a covered patio for dining, five fire pits, a children’s playscape, and an acre of grass and green space overlooking Aliber soccer fields and the bike path. Either step inside to be immersed in a homey, eclectic vibe filled with vibrant textures or ground yourself outdoors in the backyard patio party.

Either/Or was conceived by the owners of HYFR Hospitality, which includes husband-and-wife team Scott and Whitney Selix, Lua Brewing’s head brewer Zack Dunbar, and executive chef James Arbaugh. Either/Or’s diverse offerings make it a great spot for date night, a boisterous evening out with friends, or a bite to eat with family.

Our mission is to produce the highest quality food and drink in the city and serve it in a vibrant space where people — employees or guests — can converse, connect, and be either this or that. We’re all different, but in the end we all have the same needs for safety, love, and nourishment.
