The good - the service was excellent and the view of the river was why we came and did not disappoint. The steaks were good, but overpriced in our opinion. In fact everything was a little overpriced given the food was mostly "average". We visited...More

Loved this beautiful old building. The repurposed restaurant was cool and quirky. The view was amazing, overlooking the dam in Coralville. Our waiter was awesome, funny, and attentive. The food was really good, though the entrees (tuna, scallops) were a little underwhelming. For the decor,...More

We have eaten here more than once. Each dish has been good and the steaks were perfectly cooked for each of us. Love the cole slaw included with the meals.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
How much would it be for around 20 people to sit together and have Sunday Brunch (per person, including everything). I'm trying to organize a Bar Mitzvah weekend brunch on March 26, but need each to pay his own meal, and trying to connect guests to menu and invitation.

I would say $25 also. But they have a great room with a view. Call and ask for the room booker. Do a brunch, probably cheaper.
Are you open for lunch on Mondays?

I think only Supper. When I asked the phone it pulled up open 4-10PM but the website says 5-9PM. I think calling would be the best bet. 319-351-1904
