Great place for steaks and seafood, huge Sunday brunch. Get a table by the window for a view of the Iowa River, in the winter you will likely see bald eagles congregating by the dam. There is a pub (Flannigans) in the same building for more casual dining and drinking. Both are good.

If you are looking for a place to get away and watch the river flowing by, this is a great place. If you are a foodie looking for a spectacular meal, you may be disappointed. The menu has a lot of variety from steaks to fish to pasta, chicken, and duck. We have had several different things there and all... More

Great service. They even supplied cake plates and forks for a birthday cake brought in for dessert. Food was great with sizable portions. I split a meal with my daughter. The view was great, even at night. The lights shone on the dam, river, and surrounding area for a great look.

My wife & I enjoyed nice steak dinners on Veteran's Day, seated by large windows overlooking the beautiful Iowa River. Our server was most helpful. We hadn't been here for over 20 years, but this place retains its unique charm.

We have gone there total twice now. It's a nice open restaurant with plenty of dining area. It's nice not being packed in like sardines. Food has always been amazing. Service always cordial and attentive. It is definitely a place we will frequent every time we are in town.

My brother and I recently hosted a 50th wedding anniversary dinner for our parents at the Iowa River Power Company. My parents have enjoyed this restaurant many times for family Sunday brunch, so I thought it would be the perfect place. Our service/waiter was terrible. This is a buffet so there really isn't a whole lot to do other than... More

This restaurant is located in the old powerhouse for the Iowa River Power Company and features table side views of the river, falls and nature preserve. The inside is open with brick walls and period lighting. The menu is extensive, but we had steaks that were so tender and flavorful, you did not even need a knife. Our service was... More

Yesterday, my wife and I and our daughter & son-in-law went to Sunday Brunch at the Iowa River Power Co Restaurant in Iowa City. Ambience fabulous, food, oustanding, Beautiful Day, blue skies, Bald Eagles swooping down and fishing for their own brunch and we must have had the best view "in the house" right on the river. We had made... More
