Very nice place to dine out

Parking was tight on a cold Friday night and had a very short wait to be seated. Very nice views of the river. Wait staff was fair, friendly but could have been more attentive. Food was good, my prime rib was flavorful and cooked perfectly. My partners steak was not cooked evenly and was a little... read more

It has been years since I've had the opportunity to dine here and decided this was a perfect place for several couples to celebrate Valentine's Day. The service was excellent, the environment just right and we all enjoyed very well made dishes. Was happy to find it as good as I had remembered it and plan to return soon.

I have been there about twice prior, and have had a good meal and service prior. Valentines Day 2015 was no exception. They were busy, and we arrived about 15 minutes ahead of time, and were seated about 5 minutes ahead of our reservation time. We had their Prime Rib special for the night, and it was EXCELLENT. Servers were... More

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.
