We ate here for my cousin's rehearsal dinner. The food was excellent. So excellent everyone had a hard time deciding what to eat. I settled on the Ahi Ahi.

Eating late in the day, I ordered only two starters and that was too much food for one person. The potato skins and crab puffs were delicious and generously sized. The leftovers were good for breakfast and lunch. The service, atmosphere and location of the restaurant were equal to the quality of the food.

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.
