We've eaten here many times before but it has been a while so we noticed a difference. The name was modified a bit so now it's "Tuscany at Des Moines Creek". They had many of their regular menu items including fantastic pies. But with a name as Tuscany they added some Med stuff which I wasn't interested in.

With the name change also came the price change which was definitely higher than previously.

The food and service was good, there wasn't many people there that night. I guess I was a bit dissappointed with the change because it just didn't feel the same. We'll probably be back but not for a while.

This place is all about the breakfast buffet! Its a tad expensive if you don't have the biggest appetite! But all in all, its pretty good.

Birthday celebration with friends. Very quiet for a Thursday night. We practically had the place to ourselves. Hadn't been back here in several years (and was so so about it then, other than their award winning pies.) Am so glad we chose DC for dinner. Although the decor is somewhat tired, the service is good and the food was delicious. When the birthday girl chose Rhubarb pie for the 4 of us to share, off the menu, our waitress thought their might be one piece left or none at all. She was gone quite a while and came back with 4 thin slices of apple crisp with cream on them. She said there was no Rhubarb but thought we might like these as they were already cut and they don't normally sell them like that. So she gave them to us on the house. Very nice!

We were group of 10 people who visited this place for our lunch/meeting. Food was cooked to perfection, They are so accomodating, very friendly and lastly I would say this is the place where you would like to go with your family, friends or just by yourself. By the way Pies are still baked by Mary Ann like always

To all who have been to Des moines creek resturant when THE GRANTS owned it, before 2004 knows what good hospitlity, cleanliness, and curtousey is. and most of all, good food. The Grants treated everyone like family, including the guests. Long time customers would remember Bill Grant as a kind and friendly face who was always around.

i am absolutly disgusted that these people came in and RUINED a family made land mark and turned it into a unfriendly, disgusting hole in the wall. im throughly appauald that they would even still use the marys pies. seeing as marys pies are no longer made by mary,

i surly hope that they read this and improve, or sell it to someone else who wants to keep it the way it was ment to be, and who would take pride in owning such a great establisment (well, it was when i knew it atleast). im sad to know that most of des moines doesnt care for des moines creek resutrant anymore.

so, everyone stay away till you hear its under new managment!!!!!!!!!!!!
