“Wonderful place to eat!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you are looking for great food in a comfortable atmosphere go to The Quarry located in downtown area. The menu is not huge but has a wonderful selection and everything is done in house and is very tasty. They also have a good wine selection and a full bar. It is located next to the Frank-Lloyd Wrigth Hotel and the decor is very nice and it is a very good place to eat or to take clients if you are there on business. It is probably one of the best places to eat in the north-east area of Iowa.

“No Mortadella in the Muffeletta”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Six of us visited the Quarry for lunch. Despite the fact the restaurant wasn't very busy it took a while for a waitress to attend to our table. The food most of us ordered was average to good for pub fare. The craft ales were excellent. However... my wife ordered the Muffeletta sandwich, which was supposed to contain olive salad, provalone, salami, cappocolo, mortadella, and pepperoni according to the menu. When the sandwich cane, they had used ham instead of coppocolo and american balogna instead of mortadello. The meats are similar, but there is a difference (mortadella and cappocolo are more expensive and spicier). There was also very little olive salad on the sandwich... just a trace... very disappointing sandwich! When my wife brought this to the attention of the waitress, no reason for the meat substitution was given... but she did offer an apology.

Homemade chips, great chili. Everyone in our party liked their food. Close to Historic Park Inn, shopping mall, and Music Man Square.

“Best Restaurant in North Iowa”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The Quarry is the best restaurant in North Iowa. Period. I really enjoy the lamb and their ceviche is also very good. Actually, everything I've had here has been excellent. The Quarry serves excellent food without the pretentious atmosphere. If you are looking for the best food in North Iowa, this is the place.
