Great food, and plenty of it. The service was great and friendly. Little expensive but worth every penny.

Arrived at 11:30am for lunch and was told they were already sold out of Ribeye steak sandwich, Grilled tenderloin, and hot tea. Place was not busy, so puzzled why they would have been sold out.

If you're looking for swanky ambiance this is not for you. If you want great steak and a comfortable location you'll enjoy this place. We ordered filet mignon Pittsburgh style and it was done to perfection. Sides and salad bar were all good. Adult beverages were tasty and reasonably priced. Will go again!

Massively over priced cheep steaks, sad salad bar! Saturday night and the menue is so small, you really dont have much to choose from. Staff poorly dressed and not personable at all ( the kitchen staff in the camo shorts and ratty t-shirt was the worst) The interior hasnt been kept up and in falling into decay... I was not... More

All of us like our meat char broiled rare and we all had the bacon wrapped filet mignon, cooked to perfection, served with grilled texas toast and baked potato. A salad bar with plenty to choose from accompanies your meal. Chicken and pork is also on the... More

My wife and I visited with another couple and needless to say we were not impressed. We started out with beers that were not cold. The salad bar was a blend of tasteless mayonnaise covered yuck and the usual salad. The steak options are way overpriced for grisly meat and a bland flavor. You get a better cut of meat... More

We travel quite a bit around the country, and we always read the reviews of restaurants prior to eating there. The Iowa beef steak house had a lot of great reviews. Unfortunately the review I have to give is not a good one. Well maybe if you like salt. I'm not sure if they know how to cook steak but... More

Highly recommend this steakhouse. We asked hotel receptionist to recommend a local place for steak. NOT A CHAIN. Iowa Beef Steak House was great. We had fillet mignon- large, tender delicious! If you like you can watch them cook the steak in front of you in the corner of the dining room. Baked potatoes perfectly cooked. Salad bar included. Locally... More
