Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I had a really solid medium flat-iron steak at this somewhat quaint downtown pub right on the Cedar River. It takes a good cook to hit the right spot on a medium steak and this one was just right. Unfortunately the service made the overall experience take a hit, as I had to approach a waitress upon entering to find out whether to simply take a table or wait to be seated--this was after she stared at me for around a minute from the kitchen area. There was a "you're not from around here, are you?" vibe from then on, with slow, curt service throughout. It's a shame, because the food was good and the setting is nice.

We ate on the deck over looking the river. Great view. We had asked a waitress inside if we needed to be seated and if they served food on the deck. She said to seat ourselves that there was service. We waited quite a while for the same waitress to outside. Another waitress kept walking by saying that someone would be out. Once we gave our order, the drinks and food came out quickly. We both had a tenderloin. One breaded one plain. They were both large and tasty. The price was very reasonable. I’d like to come back and try the other items on the menu.

Stopped in on a trip to eastern Iowa for a quick bite to eat and a few beers. Had the Pork tenderlion and it was amazing! The beer were cold and the service was great. Will stop in again for sure.
