Description: I think this place just opened. The food was great, it is the "most classy" place for "miles around", the decor is interesting, and the service was above average. The smoked pork chop was the best any of our group had ever eaten. The steak was average. Full bar with reasonable prices (a really good Long Island Iced Tea was $5.25). This was an unexpected gem in a small Iowa town not known for its food.

Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

For foodies Fort Dodge is a wasteland. That said, and missing the fresh seafood of the coasts and the mouthwatering dishes from our travels, we always leave Mineral City happy with our meal and the service. It's the best Fort Dodge has to offer.

“If in the Fort Dodge area, this is the place to go!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

3 words...COCONUT CHICKEN SALAD. This is good, really good (especially if you're a coconut fan). I want to tell you about other delish dishes here but I've never had anything else. I live in the Des Moines area and find excuses to get to Fort Dodge just to get this salad. Great staff too (Millie was a fantastic staff member to deal with) and LOVE the car side to go service.

“Small sizes for lunch”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Not bad place if it doesn't burn down again. Food sizes could be a little bigger for the price. More of a restaurant for the movers and shakers in town.
