“Amazing food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Great food, Great enviroment, and Great Beer. The food was excelent and so was the service. I . had a Filet Mignon and it was cooked perfectly (MW). I was with a group of 8. We couldnt complain about a thing. If you go to this restaurant you must try the buffalo blue cheese fries. They are amazing. It's a good way to cut out the meat for your veggie friends. The location of the restaurant is a little odd. Ottumwa is not a booming area however they are taking the time to restore certain areas and aspects in order to boost the community.

“Great surprise”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Fettuccine with shrimp and the fettuccine with balsamic were outstanding and the side salad was nice and fresh. Highly recommended.

“Nice location food is average”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This is a very nice setting for a restaurant. The building looks turn of the century and is very open and spacious. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
The menu is uninspired, an upscale bar food type menu. There was not a lot of variety and healthy choices were few and far between. Food that I ordered was cooked correctly and served hot but I was not excited by the entree. For the prices that they charge I would expect more creativity and uniqueness to the presentation and flavor. Great beer but I feel they need a more upscale menu.

“Wonderful food ”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

The service is good but the food is great! Seems to always be busy when there. This was just my second visit. Had their brewed raspberry wheat beer and thoroughly enjoyed it, although I'm no beer connoisseur. Will certainly be back.

“Two more visits since my 1st review”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

I've visited twice since my last review. Food and service was excellent both times. Filet was cooked medium rare and very tasty. I would also recommend the Cajun pasta.
