“Not worth it...”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel I was staying at. I was there about 6pm and was the only one there. It was so quiet I could hear the kitchen conversations about charging more for the soup and salad. I orderd the Halibut and was told they don't have that (even though it was on the menu) the waitress listed another 3-4 items that they don't have either as they "were changing the menu." Would have been nice to know ahead of time. Service was good, blackened salmon was not seasoned well. Rice and baked potato were fine. Poor ambience overall and wouldn't waste another visit on this one.

“Good spot for a quiet dinner.”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Had a one night stay in Council Bluffs and the desk clerk at the SpringHill Suites recommended Tish's. It was a slow night only 6-7 cars in the parking lot and a "seat yourself" sign inside the door. The glass door needed to be cleaned as there were finger and hand prints covering it. I picked a booth with a view of the TV over the bar. Service was a bit slow but on the whole she did an okay job. I had the blackened salmon with brocoli and red potatoes. Each item was cooked properly and I enjoyed the meal. The salad that preceeded the meal was just leaf lettuce with two small cucumbers placed on top. Could have used some other garden items to add some color and flavor. I enjoyed a drink with dinner and the pour was a bit skimpy. All in all an okay experience.

When you find this treasure, you feel that you've come upon one of those best kept secrets. The variety of the menu is enticing to encourage you to come back and try a different item.
