“One Good Meal”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

It's been a while since we ate here and I forget how good it is. Lobster goon appetizer...wife, tempura shrimp...my filet. All excellent quality, flavor, and presentation! Server, Scott, provided attentive, knowledgeable, pleasant experience.

“a wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We dined there with friends a week ago. This was our second visit in 6 months. Being only our second visit we were totally amazed that our waitress recognized our group. We returned here again as the prime rib was fantastic as was everything else we ate. Our waitress was awesome allowing us to enjoy a few drinks, bringing courses of the meal at our request. Wonderful dining experience.

“A good restaurant for Sunday meals with the family.”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

A good and complete menu which caters to family get togethers and older couples. A long standing tradition in and around the Des Moines area.

“Excellent service and food!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Only been here twice but both experiences were great. Service is definitely top notch and the food follows along with this. Definitely try out the drink menu, their martinis are poured right at your table. Best part is the menu changes with the seasons, both times Ive been there, the menu was completely different.

Love coming here for special occasions and will be coming back for more!

“very nice place to dine”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is one of our favorite places to eat. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. The hostess greets you with a smile and pleasant greeting and will check on your meal during the evening. The menu has a nice selection and there is usually a nice selection of additional specials - often seasonal and featuring local produce. Their pizzas are very good and will feed two people.
Wednesdays are often half-price bottles of wine (Wine Down Wednesdays) - a nice promotion and good value.
It is a fun place to eat. There is outdoor dining, dependent of the weather.
