Our family went for a special occasion and it was excellent. The Steak Debergo was the best, so tender you could cut it with a fork. Prime rib also awesome. Huge salad bar. Yes it is pricey but worth it!

Their hours are 11: 00 AM to 9:00 PM. Since you have internet it surprises me that you don't look it up yourself or since you are in the same town as the restaurant why not walk over or call them?

Yes and it is one of the very best in the Des Moines area. Or sometimes we just get the salad bar. A lot of good eating.

Enjoy an amazing selection of incredible seafood, chops, pasta and John's specialty Prime Rib, USDA Choice rib eye, slow roasted and carved to order, plus many other delicious menu items.

John's father, Ron Jaeger, opened a restaurant on the Northeast side of Des Moines in 1978. For over thirty years, it featured prime rib and a salad bar offering thirty items. John was raised in the family business, working under his father's direction. After Ron's passing, John successfully managed the family restaurant, for over six years, completing a major renovation and creating a dramatic increase in business. In 2009, John opened John & Nicks Steak & Prime Rib, in Clive, with the intention of passing this family business down to his son, Nick. In 2013, John & Nicks was a finalist in the Des Moines CityView Best of and Ultimate Steak Challenge contests.

In 2014, the DSM Register Datebook reviewed John & Nicks with a Highly Recommended rating.
