We frequent here often and enjoy their variety of food choices. The prices are pretty good (less than $10 for lunch and around $10-15 for supper) and the food tastes great! The menu has traditional options (sandwiches, steaks, salad bar, breakfast buffet, daily specials) and some unique dishes that the owners put together (Melissa's Chicken). I love the Hickory Chicken... More

Mostly American food with a sportsbar in the rear rooms. Food is ok, they have a decent buffet on Sundays and holidays. Prices are very reasonable.Service is friendly and informal. Located right on the highway as you pass through town on highway 34

Ate here many times when working in Creston. This was my go to choice in town. They were always fast and food was good. Prices were also descent. This is a big step up from the burger joints and chain restaurants in town. Food was always consistently good.

The Windrow offers a wide selection of dishes for a reasonable fare (~$10 pp). The Hickory Chicken Melt is delicious and I really like their ranch dressing! Good service. The main area is family-friendly while the bar offers a good location for adults to eat and have a drink.

Good food in a small town. We have a monthly breakfast group and look forward to it. It's also a place we gather for special occasions. They have a buffet, daily specials, and a good variety of meals.

We ate here one evening while in town for business. They have decent food and a large selection to choose from. It is a pretty typical small town resturant. Nothing outstanding, but good service and decent food.
