Need a business setting for a lunch meeting close to the airport? This is it. Dark interior and good lunch menu from salads, sandwiches and entrees. Full bar menu too.

Excellent food, nice cozy dining atmosphere and friendly waitresses. We have eaten here many times and have always had a nice experience for either lunch or dinner. It is a relaxed eating experience served with warm bread with your soup or salad, then entrée and dessert options, too. Wide variety of menu and compatible prices with nicer eating establishment. Parking usually is no problem but can get full at times. At evenings sometimes there is a wait during popular times, but well worth it if you have time; still better than waiting out in West Des Moines ha. It is one of the few nicer restaurants that the South Side has left and I am thankful to have them! Great place to meet friends for a nice evening out or just a relaxing evening out with hubby!

Skip's is one of our favorite places to eat in Des Moines. They have great food and a nice menu with sufficient variety but not overwhelming. Be sure to get there early for dinner on the weekends as it is a popular place.

This is one of our favorite restaurants on the south side of Des Moines. Friendly staff who remember you on return visits and even how you like your pasta prepared. Diverse menu, cozy atmosphere, pleasant for both lunch and dinner.
