comfy atmosphere dining separate from bar makes it nice, service usually great, food is great, salad bar small but nice. Little walk to get in for those with handicaps or difficult walking, has handicap entrance. Prices are decent and many specials.

Wonderful place for lunch/dinner with friends or family. Brad tries very hard to serve variety and tasteful choices! 1\2 lb hamburgers, made anyway you like, chicken club or an excellent grilled tenderloin. Do NOT miss the onion rings!

On a family road trip in summer vacation along the Mississippi River, stopped in Keokuk to see the sights and overnight. Pizza night before, burgers for lunch today. We were skeptical yet optimistic for The Cellar. We ended up going in through the bar entrance but the back dining room was very normal and clean and great views. Greasy bar... More

Have been going to Keokuk for work for years. Have stopped here often and over the 18 years it has been consistently good. I recommend the Chicken Cordon Bleu. Fresh and crisp. The fries are freshly made and excellent. Worth the stop.

I had two meals while I was there and both were terrific. Prompt service and good food plus a nice view of the river.

My wife and I shared a tenderloin and a large basket of home made French fries. Pretty tasty. We were hoping for more of a river view but could only see a small part of it. I was offered coffee several times but the wife's water glass was never refilled.

Some days, it's really good, other times it's just okay. I've heard things are better recently, but I haven't been since I heard that

We wanted to visit a local restaurant and were very disappointed in the food and atmosphere. Very outdated and the food was not cooked prepared or presented. Will not be going back. I hate to leave a negative but this isn't as good if food as a mom and pop restaurant but that is what they were going for.
