I had heard many wonderful things about Iowa River Power Co. My husband, myself and another couple were all celebrating anniversaries so we chose this restaurant. The 2 hour drive there and back was worth it. This place was fantastic. We had a window seat with a spectacular view. I'm not really one of those romantic mushy girls so I... More

My husband & I took our kids and my dad to IRP to celebrate our anniversary in September. Food was very good, staff was wonderful - both in the bar and the wait staff - who was very attentive. We had a great view of the river and it was a stormy night - so neat to watch the sky... More

We hadn't been here for a number of years, and , decided to have an evening out at IRP. Our experience was top notch. Food and service were excellent. An Iowa staple for many years...we'll be back next year!

The wife and I decided to meet some friends here that also had a mutual interest in checking out the place. It's very dated. It's well-worn. The staff was friendly and attentive, I must say. The view along the river dining room was nice. The food was very "cut and paste". Vegetables were obviously previously frozen microwave grade. The prime... More

Stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night and we didn't have reservations. Was told it would be a 45 minute wait, which wasn't a problem for us. We killed some time by walking around outside along the bridge. The river provides excellent photo ops, which added to the experience. The restaurant itself is nice and the views are great.... More

We had a reservation for a Saturday night. Great view of the river. The server tried very hard. There were 12 of us and no one was impressed with their food. I suspect they were short a cook or two. I could not even saw through my very expensive steak. Spinach salad was a handful of spinach and a cherry... More

We were visiting the University of Iowa. This restaurants rated well on Trip Advisor, so we decided to give it a try. Interesting, eclectic building. I had the pork chop and it was wonderfully prepared. It was very tasty. Salads were fresh and the onion rings were good, too. Waiter was a college students who was very attentive.

We had dinner at Flannagins, the pub attached to the Iowa River Power Co. It was a very good meal. The appetizers (mozz sticks and fired green beans) were very good.The dinners were very good as well. The pub shares the same kitchen as the main restaurant, and in talking to the staff, serves the same steak in both places.... More

Had reservations for a table of four and was seated right away. THEN waited one and a half hours for the food after ordering. When I called to speak to manager Jason and ask if this was their normal service. He said a 2 1/2 hour dining experience is not unusual. Good to know. NEVER plan on returning
