Although you need reservations to this historical place on the river, it delivers each Sunday for brunch. It might be a bit pricey but you get a sampling of breakfast and dinner. So, its more choices than anyone can hold. Something to please everyone.

There is a lot to be said for a place that renovated an old building, has a wide variety of food choice and an excellent staff, and offers a view. This is the Iowa River Power Company. Enjoy!

Very nice restaurant over looking the river. You can watch bald eagles fly along the river. The food is very good! It is pricey but it's nice for special occasions.

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.

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
