I prefer to eat at local restaurants when traveling, but when I pulled into Newton late for a hotel night, it didn't seem I had much choice. Montana Mike's and a few other chains were all I saw. The front desk staff at the hotel recommended Okoboji Grill, which turned out to be an Iowa-only chain, and I was pretty happy with her recommendation. An extremely extensive menu offers a wide variety of "bar and grill" style food, all prepared reasonably well. Service is fast and attentive, and the bonus is the rotating selection of draft beers on tap.
