Good steaks in casual atmosphere

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.

This is a great place to go if you want to have a quality steak dinner! You grill your own steaks, which is part of the experience, and it is complete with a small buffet of salads, potatoes, etc. The price is a little high, but the steak is seriously fresh and high quality. You select what kind of steak... More

Enjoyed our meal here. A little pricey for our tastes. Didn't realize and I guess that we should have that it was a grill your own steak place. Food was very good however.

Was in the area on business and this steak house was by our hotel. Walked in and didn't think much of the case of meat straight ahead. Come to find out it's a grill your own, a first for me. Select a cut, pick your steak, and grill it up. While your steak is on grill you can go to... More

Visiting Newton, Iowa on a short business trip and decided to have dinner here in nearby Grinnell with a colleague. Pick your own steak (lots of beautiful steak to pick from) from the clear refrigerator, and grill it yourself over a true coal grill indoors. Unlimited basic salad bar, baked potato, and Texas toast included. We paid just over $50... More

This is a "grill your own steak" place with a big charcoal grill to do it on. The prices are reasonable. If you want to spend another $3, they will cook the steak for you. We were not that hungry unfortunately. Luckily you can also have sandwiches at supper time. My DH had a burger which he dubbed one of... More

Came here for a quick bite with a client right when Grinnell opened. We were the only table for the first ten minutes and had amazing service. Make sure to try the pork tenderloin sandwich. It is very good. This would be an excellent place for dinner. I plan on coming back to try out the cook yourself steak area... More
