One of the best local restaurants we've hit up on our road trip. Staff was friendly and the food was fantastic. The chicken sandwich was quite good as well. Highly recommend if you're passing through!

It is nothing fancy, but the star of the show is the meat. I love that I get to cook the steak myself.

Stayed near the restaurant so thought I would give it a try. Food was good but pricey for the cut of meat and they charge even more if they cook it. Salad bar was very good but baked potatoes were poor. My friend had a Sandwich and was very unimpressed . Not bad but I would not repeat.

On cross country trips, we have made efforts to end up in Grinnell at dinner time. Never before had the opportunity to cook my own steak over the large charcoal grill in the center of a restaurant. It was excellent. Must be my culinary skills (!). Salad bar fine, choice of potatoes and soup also offered. No background music, no... More

We were staying at the Best Western two parking lots down from here. Beat from travelling, this was the best option. My husband was very happy to have Sam Adams (regular) on tap. Food simple but good, very casual.

Good food, nice building, friendly staff. Nothing fancy about it. Just good, homemade food. If I have to be back in Grinnell I would eat here again.

we are locals and glad we spent New Year's Eve here for dinner. Good service, drinks, salad bar, and big steaks! We have them cook ours, and were done to our liking - would recommend to anyone!

Greeted warmly, set up table quickly for 9 with separate tickets. Hostess knew we wanted sandwiches, appetizers and beverages. Took our orders quickly, and kept drinks coming. Very pleasant waitress, knowledgeable about the menu.
