Went for Sunday brunch with our family~ we all agreed it was the best brunch we have ever had. The selection was good, and the food was hot and very flavorful !! To top it off, the desserts were to die for! Definitely worth the money~

We stayed in Coralville on our way up to Minnesota. This restaurant was near our hotel, so we gave it a try. What a neat place! We loved the old style decor, and the big windows to see the river and dam. There is a really enjoyable path you can walk or ride your bike on across the dam also.... More

With the high tides of flooding, I made my way to see the great view at the Iowa Rover Power Company Restaurant. There was plenty of guest parking and good signage getting me to the restaurant (not to be mixed up with Flannigans). The hostess sat me right next to the water with a view of the dam--prime location! (And... More

I was just there this evening and ordered the prime rib. I ordered it medium and was served rare and it was cool. I asked them to warm it up and I obviously got a different piece because it was on a different plate and it was now medium well but it was still very cool. I like my meat... More

Great location, atmosphere and view combined with supper tender and tasty prime rib! For those traveling across I80 and looking for a great meal in a relaxing setting to recharge on your road trip, the Iowa River Power Co. Restaurant located adjacent to the Iowa River provides this at a reasonable price.

The brunch was absolutely great. The food was very good, staff attentive and the seating of our 24 people went very well. It was a delightful venue and we all enjoyed.
