nice place if you want some nice meal and want to stay next to the hotel. Dining room is quite lonely, it may be a better choice to have dinner at the bar, where there is a little more people.

Very institutional. Most everything, obviously, came from a box. I was there on a Friday evening and very few other patrons were there. The bar was extremely over priced and slow to serve. The staff on hand seemed uninterested with their work nod who can blame them if they work for tips, not gonna make much. I expected a lot... More

Had a late dinner here. The burger and fries were good and they had a nice selection of beers on tap. We also had breakfast here the following morning. The wait staff is from the local college which makes for good conversation also.

Food was good but not much of a menu. They did offer room service and free drink coupons from 5:00 to 6:00 which didn't do me any good as I didn't get back from work till at least 6:30

We loved this restaurant...After traveling on highway 80 all day it was nice to get a room at the holiday inn and walk to this restaurant which was adjacent to the hotel (halls connect the two places)

We were staying at the Hampton and someone at the desk said "You won't get a bad meal there." True, but for the prices - only adequate. The chicken parmasean was good, but the pasta was way past al dente. My husband enjoyed the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. I was supposed to get a salad with my dinner - never... More

My daughter, friend, and I ate her after staying at the adjourning hotel. It was a decent enough brunch and my daughter ate for free. I wouldn't say that the food selection and quality was worth the cost but I would pay for it again considering the convenience in location and the fact that the facility was clean enough.

Food and drinks were fair priced for a hotel bar & grill. The staff was helpful and we received our orders pretty fast.

Despite the cheesy name this place was alright. A bit pricey for the food, but we are a captive audience. Clean and well lit. Server was very nice, but way overworked, which caused slow service. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here, but I wouldn't avoid the place either.

This past Friday night, 12/21/12, we drove a half mile and feasted on crab legs, prime rib and more! The food was excellent as was the service. And to add to our pleasure, we got a discount because we support Iowa Public Television! The restaurant was crowded: the family behind us from Missouri had piles and piles of crab shells... More
