I was very excited to try this place during our trip to Iowa. We had some difficulty parking. We were seated quickly, but our server didn't come for a quite a few minutes. When he did come and then return with our tea and coffee,...More

I have only ever been here for brunch. It is fantastic. We have family members with food allergies and the chef personally came out to talk to us about what we should avoid, which wasn't much. Great food.

We attended a rehearsal dinner that was incredible. The owner went out of her way to make sure my brother, who came from out of town very late, had a hot meal ready for him.

We have eaten here several times. The food never disappoints whether you are having dinner or their Sunday Brunch. I don't think I've had a better brunch any where. There are multiple choices for every eater. The price is more than fair for all that...More

The food could stand on its own as a reason to come here but I'm guessing many come for the view in summer. Our group had assorted appetizers and a mix of entrees and I don't think anyone was disappointed. The appetizers I tried were...More

Ordered prime rib as take out and it was excellent. Broccoli with hollandaise and baked potato were wonderful compliments to finish off entree. Bread was warm and tastes, service was great. Nothing bad to say, good portions, reasonable price for everything you get. Highly recommend.

I have been waiting for months to get a chance to dine at IRP, since it used to be my favorite place for prime rib. I hated to give it three stars. Service was good, atmosphere is top notch, spinach artichoke dip was good, french...More

I would say $25 also. But they have a great room with a view. Call and ask for the room booker. Do a brunch, probably cheaper.

I think only Supper. When I asked the phone it pulled up open 4-10PM but the website says 5-9PM. I think calling would be the best bet. 319-351-1904
