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!

The wife and I decided to meet some friends here that also had a mutual interest in checking out the place. It's very dated. It's well-worn. The staff was friendly and attentive, I must say. The view along the river dining room was nice. The food was very "cut and paste". Vegetables were obviously previously frozen microwave grade. The prime... More

Stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night and we didn't have reservations. Was told it would be a 45 minute wait, which wasn't a problem for us. We killed some time by walking around outside along the bridge. The river provides excellent photo ops, which added to the experience. The restaurant itself is nice and the views are great.... More
