“Great Food and Friendly Service”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This may be the oldest restaurant in Iowa, but I'm pretty sure it is the best as well. We arrived during the lunch hour and found a fabulous buffet. The soup was great and both the salad bar and entree bar were very, very good. There was a great deal of variety and everything was fresh and tasty. Anytime I am within 100 miles of this place for lunch or dinner, I will be back.

“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.
