“Fall is best time of year to take in scenery in Balltown, and of course great food ALWAYS at Breitbachs”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This owner has survived much peril with his restaurant, and has come back from fire, etc.. Wonderful food, pies, buffets on Sunday. Take a fall drive to take in one of the highest look out points in Iowa, beautiful anytime of year. Owner may even stop at your table to visit.

“Amazing Port Tenderloin Sandwiches”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Visited last September, and decided to pass by the good looking buffet and order from the menu. Port tenderloin sandwiches are a midwest specialty, and these are the best we have ever eaten. Be sure to order the deep fried version. They may not be good for your heart, but they are good for your soul. This restaurant was visited by Alton Brown a few years ago.

“Great buffet”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We like to go with our family because there is something for everyone:) Our waitress seemed a bit overworked with the amount of tables she was trying to serve on her own so service was slow.

“A Comfort Food Gem”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We planned a eastern Iowa bluff country route going to, and coming from, a Dubuque vacation just to try Breitbach's cooking. We weren't disappointed.
Our first stop was a late lunch. Acting on posted recommendations, my wife and I ordered the deep-fried pork tenderloin. Best Pork sandwich I've ever had. Topped it off with their walnut pie, which was to die for.
Coming back, we stopped for breakfast. I was hungry, so I ordered their ingredient, and portion rich skillet. A fabulous breakfast entree which kept me satiated til late that evening.
FYI: the locals we observed seemed to be going face down in the ample buffet, so that may be a good lunch or dinner choice, as well.
Great country comfort food!
