One of my all-time favorites is chicken fried steak. In fact I like to try it at every new restaurant I go to. So I tried it Bev's it was fantastic. First the steak was very tender. The breaking was cooked to a nice golden brown and it was crispy. The real mashed potatoes and steak was topped off with an excellent pepper gravy. The gravy had a unique slite golden color I guess to present that "chicken" dripping gravy look and taste. It came with choice of side and I chose the clam chowder which was ok. Great value at $10.50. On a side note another in our group had the ice berg lettuce with creamy blue cheese wedge and absolutely loved it.

Ate twice at Bev's while staying at the Hilton. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to our larger group. The portion sizes were very big and the food was fresh. I the only complaint I have is that they did not have very many lighter calorie options besides salads. When requests were made to try and lighten some items it seemed a little hard for the kitchen to refrain from using butter or oil for cooking vegetables. The food served was necely presented and fresh.

Bev's is a great place to relax after work. They have decent Happy Hour specials on drinks and munchies. Meal prices are high for Sioux City but the food is good and worth the cost. The outdoor patio area is nice but service there is lacking in speed and accuracy.

Although we only had dessert there (after spending time at the Lewis & Clark Interp Center) the items that we ordered were a cut above the average, as was the service. If we ever come back this way, we will make a point of having a full meal. Upscale, modern decor on the banks of the Missouri river.

Staying in the Hilton it was convenient to eat in Bev's both evenings and we enjoyed both dinners, helped by the friendly and professional service and the design and atmosphere of the room. Tables are well-spaced and the view towards the river is lit by gas flames and a fire pit outside. The lobster tail was perfectly and simply cooked, good flavour and well presented. "Pork Osso Buco" was a huge portion of tender pork on the bone in a rich sauce but, whilst tasty, bore no resemblance to Osso Buco. On our first night, Tuesday, we took advantage of the half-price martinis, on the Wednesday of the half-price bottle of wine. Both times we enjoyed a very relaxing evening.
