We had dinner at Flannagins, the pub attached to the Iowa River Power Co. It was a very good meal. The appetizers (mozz sticks and fired green beans) were very good.The dinners were very good as well. The pub shares the same kitchen as the main restaurant, and in talking to the staff, serves the same steak in both places.... More

Had reservations for a table of four and was seated right away. THEN waited one and a half hours for the food after ordering. When I called to speak to manager Jason and ask if this was their normal service. He said a 2 1/2 hour dining experience is not unusual. Good to know. NEVER plan on returning

My husband and I are in from out of town for a wedding, and the groom's parents invited us to the rehearsal dinner which was held here, and we had a phenomenal experience. First of all, the atmosphere is incredible. We loved the decor and the different dining areas. Our group was seated down some steps overlooking the river and... More

I have lived in the area for nearly a decade, and since that time, I have taken family and friends to brunch at this restaurant probably dozens of times. First, the good. The brunch is very consistent. It has great prime rib, honey glazed ham, a couple of types of scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, potatoes, penne alfredo... More

We celebrated my daughters 43rd birthday at IRP. We knew that they had a fabulous brunch but had not experienced dinner there. My pasta primavera was awesome! It was great sitting near the water. We watched a Great Blue Heron land, we listened to the sound of the water rolling over the damn. So soothing! My only complaint, the table... More

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. It was cooked perfectly and came with an awesome sauce. The roasted new potatoes were a delight. The salad came with a chevre topped crisp that was maybe the highlight of... More

Sunday brunch is okay but dessert is really great. So, save some room for that! Make sure to make a reservation for Sunday brunch ahead of time as it can be really packed! Dinner is pretty decent. The atmosphere and the view here is great. Particularly, if you have friends from out of town, should take them there. The service... More
