Food was well prepared. Good variety. Price is a little high and the food isn't conducive for reheating... Would rather pay a few dollars less for less and still be full. Drink prices aren't listed and are also quite high.

There were four in our party and all food was excellent. Hostesses and wait staff were excellent. Always stop here when we're in town and it never disappoints us.

Back again at this location after three years. We eat at these all over the US, and this one is the best so far this year. Good food, nice size portions, quick service, and a really nice physical restaurant. Everyone was very welcoming to us. Doubt I will ever be back in Ames, but just wanted others to know that... More
