  • These Cinnamon Rolls are huge
  • Family style dinner with a huge menu with many options. I usually get the prime rib when I go here and it is always good.
  • BIG Effin' fail Machine Shed. I showed up at 10:45 starving & sitting solo. After waiting almost 15 mins for a server to come to my table, i packed up. Also, after everyone around me was helped. FAIL
  • You can't go wrong with anything off the menu at this Iowa landmark restaurant. I suggest the onion ring appetizer. They're really onion strings. Also any of the Reuben sandwiches are amazing!
  • They got big ol' knives!
  • Similar to Cracker Barrel, put better because its John Deer
  • Chicken Fried Steak was awesome! You wont leave hungry!
  • Good eating, Iowa-style.
  • The "shredder hashbrown casserole" is a must try side!
  • Now that I have the check and see that gratuity is included and obligatory, I understand why the wait staff is so crappy.
  • Ask for aaron! He's the best. Also, don't get french onion soup. It always burns my hand to serve it and the baked potato soup is a million times better.
  • Waitor, Aaron staver is fucking awesome
  • There is a changing table in the men's restroom.
  • You can't go wrong with the chicken fried steak. And the apple dumplings are incredible.
  • I love eggs! Gets you an extra egg for breakfast!
  • The breakfast menu ends at 11:00am on Sunday, but the breakfast buffet stays open and has almost everything you'd want. Kids are half price, too!
  • Sirloins and carriot pancake really good!!!
  • Good, authentic farm fresh food. It has become a family tradition to stop here anytime we are passing through Des Moines.
  • Ahhhhhmazing!!!! Try the carrot cake pancake
  • Avoid the Brisket, the new recipe could be easily mistaken for crispy bacon.
