Read the great reviews so gave it a shot, super cool place in the middle of nowhere. Came for late sunday afternoon grub. The upstairs had a band (awesome) so we made our way downstairs. We tried the 'sampler' appetizer, just your typical everywhere bar food. Then came the burgers... That is one TASTY burger!!!! We each had customized burgers... More

Always enjoyed this place just dropping in or planned. Run into a lot of nice people here. The servers always seem pleasant. The food is not bad the oat beer is interesting. On Sunday they have open mic and locals or passer bys can perform. Looking forward to many more visits.

Had heard really good things about the prime rib on Saturday nights, but hadn't been there until last week. Bonus was that Deep Dish Divas was performing, so we made it a point to go. Prime rib was amazing. Served with waffle fries, no frills, but delish. Also had fresh, homemade pecan pie. Also delish. We'll be back!

Thank nancsw

Prime rib and Deep Dish Divas? Sounds like a great night. Thanks for making the trip in and we are happy that you enjoyed yourselves! See you next time! More

Go here and get the best food and surroundings you can imagine. Ancient stone building literally at the edge of the river. Good burgers and great ambience.

We have a group of six that we call "Uncorked". We drove from Des Moines, IA to eat at the General Store.
