Great atmosphere, outstanding view and excellent food but the big attraction was approximately 10 Bald Eagles roosting in the trees directly across the river from this restaurant. We watched them swoop out of the trees, fly along the water and then land back in the trees.

Great views and neat building. Food was mediocre. Our particular service was terrible but we could tell other wait staff was much better.

Two filets, two pork chops, two rib eyes, one crab stuffed shrimp, and one prime rib...all excellent. One steak was overdone but they replaced it immediately. Loved loved loved the warm gluten free bread. I think it was the second best steak in my life (first was at the Lark which burned down years ago) and certainly the best gluten... More

A group of us decided to try out the Iowa River Power Company and we weren't disappointed. I had the Tuna which was very good. One of my associates had the Cajun Prime Rib. Said it was the best he'd had. They also had an extensive wine list which was good but pricey. We all agreed that we would return... More

Some of the best steaks in town. All 4 Co workers ordered different steaks and all were cooked as ordered. Calamari was decent. Good portions, for a fair price.

A wonderful place. We went here for a celebration and it was a great choice. We were a large group but were seated right away on a snowy Friday night. The martini I got was well prepared. I ordered the Filet Mignon which was perfectly cooked. I enjoyed the salad as well. Everyone ordered something different at our table and... More

I had heard many wonderful things about Iowa River Power Co. My husband, myself and another couple were all celebrating anniversaries so we chose this restaurant. The 2 hour drive there and back was worth it. This place was fantastic. We had a window seat with a spectacular view. I'm not really one of those romantic mushy girls so I... More

My husband & I took our kids and my dad to IRP to celebrate our anniversary in September. Food was very good, staff was wonderful - both in the bar and the wait staff - who was very attentive. We had a great view of the river and it was a stormy night - so neat to watch the sky... More

We hadn't been here for a number of years, and , decided to have an evening out at IRP. Our experience was top notch. Food and service were excellent. An Iowa staple for many years...we'll be back next year!
