Ate several meals at the Oxbow while in Prairie City for the Eclipse. The food was delicious and the service was great. Going back again soon!

Recommended by our hotel, this family-run establishment has a ton of history. The menu was extensive and my husband had the home-made fettuccini alfredo; I had the burger which was excellent. Fries were good too. Great ambience, and nice owners. Go early because it is...More

Stopped here for dinner. Bar is impressive with interesting story. Food and service were pretty good. For evening meal go early as this place will close by 8PM and for food service you probably need to arrive not later than 7PM.

If you want hunting trophies and a hand-carved turn of the century solid mahogany bar this place does not disappoint. We were there at happy hour and split a chef salad and buffalo codfish bites. Both were very good and fresh. The bartender had grown...More

A very small town with a very nice restaurant. I had the chicken-fried steak, not haute cuisine but a nice rendition of the old favorite. My wife also liked her pork chop, thin but nicely moist an flavorful. The proprietor took pains to make us...More
