Food is great, but above all the view! Wowza! I live close enough I walk and bike to the area. If you are here for the food, come on one of those glorious not humid crazy sunny 70-80 degree days where life seems to melt away and cares dissapear! There is an outdoor veranda with umbrellas and the spray from... More

I last ate here in 1995. It was great then and still is. The manager and server were so accommodating for my son with severe allergies. We had steaks, salmon and chicken. All great.

Went here for dinner with 7 friends while we were visiting Iowa for a wedding. The Prime Rib was excellent and prepared perfectly. We would surly go back here on another visit.

Although you need reservations to this historical place on the river, it delivers each Sunday for brunch. It might be a bit pricey but you get a sampling of breakfast and dinner. So, its more choices than anyone can hold. Something to please everyone.

We arrived with a large group and people with food allergies. The service was spectacular. For the people with food allergies, the chef actually came out and custom made amazing meals. We travel a lot and eat out frequently and can't say enough positive things about this restaurant!

We were here for a Tuesday night dinner while traveling to Chicago. We were seated outside on the patio overlooking the river dam. It was very nice! My party ordered Prime rib, salmon and Mahi for entrees. The salads came out pretty quick but the bread offering was slow at best. They had to bake a loaf for us, she... More

We were back in Iowa City for UI Orientation. After orientation was complete, we went out for a nice meal. This place was highly recommended by Trip Advisor. The parking lot was packed so I expected a long wait. Fortunately, we only waited 15 minutes if that. There were two different rehearsal dinners going on at the same time, at... More

This was the best brunch buffet ever! Everything was hot, fresh and delicious! The variety was amazing - eggs, fruit, pastries, smoked salmon, freshly carved ham and roast beef, waffles and homemade bisquit and gravy. The bloody Marys looked so good, but I had too long a day of traveling to have one. It was all so good!

There is a lot to be said for a place that renovated an old building, has a wide variety of food choice and an excellent staff, and offers a view. This is the Iowa River Power Company. Enjoy!
