We ate at Raccoon River on a Friday evening with three kids. We did not have to wait to be seated, but the restaurant was comfortably full. It is in a historic space with tall ceilings and we really enjoyed sitting by the mural of Gray's Lake.
Service was prompt and we were pleasantly surprised by the offerings on the menu and the prices. Kids meals are $4.95 and include an entree, side and drink. Our kids had a cheeseburger (was the size of an adults) and the hotdog. They happily subbed fresh fruit for french fries.
The adults in our party had a Pub Salad with Grilled Chicken and the house vinaigrette, Greek Salad, and a chicken sandwich with fresh grilled veggies as a side. We had a large variety of food items and everything was absolutely delicious. It is a nice relaxed atmosphere. We did not feel rushed and the server was punctual with bringing the check and getting us out of there, which is much appreciated when dining with kids!
Parking can be a bit difficult downtown. We were able to find a spot in the alley behind the restaurant.
