I ate here while in town for business and the food was very tasty. I had the Parmesan Crusted Chicken with a salad and their Onion Blast (like a Blooming Onion) as an appetizer. Everything tasted great. The chicken was a little tough, which is one of the reasons I gave it four stars. It wasn't crazy busy, but the... More

A very good steak restaurant in Fort Dodge. I came here for a business trip and our party came here for dinner. I really liked the strip and heard the Iowa Pork was excellent as well. Service was very good along with the very good food.

Food was average. Service was very good. My husband thought the Bloody Mary was good. It was very cold in the area we were seated. My water glass had a big chip out of it and needed replaced.

Hadn't been here in a few years, but pleased to see that everything is just as good as it was, or perhaps a bit better. Great cocktails, too.

The ambiance is ok. The menu selection is ok. The food is ok. The service is ok. The cost is on the higher side for an ok experience. Nothing spectacular but it's ok.

A bit pricey but we were so hungry it hit the spot! Great service. Group of 12 but they were there to take orders and serve us quickly. Excellent food - lots of choices.

I was in Fort Dodge with my cheer team. 16 of us went to Mineral City on a Saturday night at 6:00. It was busy and the host/manager told us it would be 30 to 45 minutes, but he would get us in. After about 30 minutes he came to our group and told us the progress on getting us... More

I think this place just opened. The food was great, it is the "most classy" place for "miles around", the decor is interesting, and the service was above average. The smoked pork chop was the best any of our group had ever eaten. The steak was average. Full bar with reasonable prices (a really good Long Island Iced Tea was $5.25). This was an unexpected gem in a small Iowa town not known for its food.
