I've had many meals at the Decker Hotel over the last 15 years when I come into down to visit family. The food has always been delicious, and I've had everything from a chicken salad sandwich for lunch to trout almondine for dinner. The servers are always attentive and kind. One of my favorite Maquoketa restaurant

Had the Pork Chop Dinner crooked perfectly, service was great. I am a celiac, they have a Gluten Free Menu and the staff is knowledgeable about Gluten Free Dining.

My wife and I and another couple stopped by about 6 pm on a weekday on our way home from holiday travel. We ordered dinners, rib eyes,fish and a chop, which came with salad soup or potato choices. We two with rib eyes were served two different sizes. I'm a definitive carnivore and asked what the heck - I had... More

The food was great, they certainly know how to cook a burger to a perfect medium. Not a huge selection of items, but I like that sort of thing, it keeps me from having the waitress come back 3 times before I make up my mind. Casual atmosphere and average prices as well.

Nice old school hotel with full service restaurant and nice basement bar with decent drink slingers. Friendly staff, nice, simple efficient rooms. Probably the best place in town and right downtown where the 'action' is.

Ok at best. Very friendly staff and a beautiful old hotel. The food was not that good. I had a vegetable pasta that didn't have much flavor. Not sure if I would try it again.

This is an unique building with a lot of history and charm. The food is good, but a little pricey. There is a nice bar area to visit with friends and also a bar in the downstairs with it's own outside entrance. The fact that President Grant stayed here just adds to the charm.

My husband and I were staying one night. We had visited the state park and was able to check in early. Front staff was very friendly. The hotel is very historic and well preserved. Our room was very small, 12x12 with a small bathroom. Not a huge problem because we were there to sleep. Shower had great pressure and the... More

Stopped in for lunch with my mom and fiance while in town and were pleasantly surprised. My fiance got the steak sandwich, and I immediately wanted his meal. Not that mine was bad, as I had the asian chicken wrap (equally amazing). My mom had the cobb salad and was also impressed. Portions are great, prices are low and quality... More
