This is an interesting place. Looks like a chain from the outside. All the handicap parking was full at 5:30, which gave warning that the customers were our age or older. However, the food is really, really good. It is fresh, with layers of flavor...More

I have always enjoyed this restaurant here and its sister restaurant in the Iowa Great Lakes area. Great food, particularly their pasta, which you might not guess based on its name. I have the Cajun Chicken Pasta which is essentially chicken alfredo with cajun spice...More

I had shrimp fettuccine Alfredo and she had a spring sensations salad. Decent amount of shrimp in my dish. Her salad had plenty of fruit in it, candied walnuts, and great vinaigrette. We enjoyed both. Drink refills could come quicker. Dinner rolls are great, but...More

Mineral City is our go-to restaurant! We've eaten here at least once a month since they opened, and have maybe only had a few fair experiences. Food is always good, with a nicely diverse menu. Recently had the bone-in strip and it was a very...More

Passing through town, someone recommended Mineral City Mill & Grill was close by my hotel. Why not? The service was quick, the beer on tap was good, and the food was fairly non-descript. I would rate it as average and pretty much on par with...More

The menu for mineral city mill and grill Fort Dodge Iowa is online. I think it is broke up into small sub divisions so looks like there isn't much but it's all there as far as I could remember.

I think this place just opened. The food was great, it is the "most classy" place for "miles around", the decor is interesting, and the service was above average. The smoked pork chop was the best any of our group had ever eaten. The steak was average. Full bar with reasonable prices (a really good Long Island Iced Tea was $5.25). This was an unexpected gem in a small Iowa town not known for its food.
