Their hours are 11: 00 AM to 9:00 PM. Since you have internet it surprises me that you don't look it up yourself or since you are in the same town as the restaurant why not walk over or call them?

Yes and it is one of the very best in the Des Moines area. Or sometimes we just get the salad bar. A lot of good eating.

John Jaeger opened John & Nick's Steak & Prime Rib, in Clive. Enjoy John & Nick's famous salad bar, bigger and better with over 60 fresh and homemade items, and hand cut Black Angus, USDA Choice steaks, aged 21 days for maximum taste and tenderness. Enjoy an amazing selection of incredible seafood, chops, pasta and John's specialty Prime Rib, USDA Choice rib eye, slow roasted and carved to order, plus many other delicious menu items. John's father, Ron Jaeger, opened a restaurant on the Northeast side of Des Moines in 1978. For over thirty years, it featured prime rib and a salad bar offering thirty items. John was raised in the family business, working under his father's direction. After Ron's passing, John successfully managed the family restaurant, for over six years, completing a major renovation and creating a dramatic increase in business. In 2009, John opened John & Nicks Steak & Prime Rib, in Clive, with the intention of passing this family business down to his son, Nick. In 2013, John & Nicks was a finalist in the Des Moines CityView Best of and Ultimate Steak Challenge contests.
