To celebrate my husband's birthday, we drove 90 minutes to meet our nephew for dinner in a place that he and his parents had been raving about regarding the prime rib. We were all hankering for a delicious prime rib! There were three choices: $21.95 for "small," $24.95 for "standard" and $27.95 for "full." Knowing that ordering the biggest one... More

In Iowa City for shopping and stopped for dinner. Service was outstanding. Prime rib was excellent as usual. The Power Company continues to shine.

This restaurant has come back a bit from its diminished days. The Sunday brunch is extensive. Many diners vie for window seats in winter when the bald eagles flock at the dam to capture fish that are stunned.

We stopped in for a late dinner after a long drive from Chicago. Beautiful setting by the river. We enjoyed sunset and moonrise on the patio but then moved inside due to the bugs. Our waitress could not have been more accommodating. The food was great. Our group of 5 tried a variety of selections and no one left hungry.... More

Had a lovely dinner here with friends. Sat right at the window with a great view of the river. Steak was great and so was the service. Reasonable prices

worn & tattered place. Service barely fair, food was lackluster. Felt like a place about to be on its last gasp/ no reason to go there at all.

Ambiance is really cool on the inside! I went for brunch and the food was delicious - had a mix of breakfast foods (waffles, eggs, etc) with lunch items like pasta, salmon, mashed potatoes.It was delicious. The price is unbeatable - included in the price of the meal - which was like $20 are unlimited mimosas! Cons: Waiter was really... More

My boyfriend brought me here for my Birthday last year as we had heard a lot about the place. The customer service was great, we had to move our reservation back as he had forgotten his wallet at home and they were very nice about letting us do so. The food was delicious and the view of the river is... More

I joined a party of five for dinner last night. The purpose for the gathering was to welcome me to town as I am new to the area. Your establishment came highly recommended as a staple and "must see" among the Iowa City gems. Our hostess and server were extremely pleasant and attentive. I ordered the ribeye medium rare and...

We were all hungry from cycling we could have eaten rubber tires and enjoyed it. Yet all of us found ourselves a little disappointed at the toughness of our steak or the dryness of the salmon. We loved the potatoes and salads. The water was willing to give our group of 16 individual checks. And the bar and restaurant decor... More
