Went there for Mother's Day and although they were busy, they took very good care of us. We sat outside, overlooking the river and the view was fantastic. Had a couple of Wapsiritas and they were delicious. Order the tenderloin! Fantastic!!! Who knew what Frosted Flakes could do for breading!!! Very light! Definitely a place to visit!

I ordered the Greek salad. It was positively delicious! The pita triangles that came with it were a little bit crunchier than I would have liked, but I dipped them into the dressing that came on the side. It appeared that there were bits of chopped black olives in the dressing, but no whole olives on the salad. A nice... More

Did a day trip with friends to Anamosa and came across the General Pub and a area with neat history and stone work. The Pub was a great atmosphere and the food very good! Loved the marshmallow treat. Looking forward to going back this summer for the outside deck area.

Read the great reviews so gave it a shot, super cool place in the middle of nowhere. Came for late sunday afternoon grub. The upstairs had a band (awesome) so we made our way downstairs. We tried the 'sampler' appetizer, just your typical everywhere bar food. Then came the burgers... That is one TASTY burger!!!! We each had customized burgers... More

Always enjoyed this place just dropping in or planned. Run into a lot of nice people here. The servers always seem pleasant. The food is not bad the oat beer is interesting. On Sunday they have open mic and locals or passer bys can perform. Looking forward to many more visits.

Had heard really good things about the prime rib on Saturday nights, but hadn't been there until last week. Bonus was that Deep Dish Divas was performing, so we made it a point to go. Prime rib was amazing. Served with waffle fries, no frills, but delish. Also had fresh, homemade pecan pie. Also delish. We'll be back!

Go here and get the best food and surroundings you can imagine. Ancient stone building literally at the edge of the river. Good burgers and great ambience.

We are so glad you made it out on the balcony before the snow and ice showed up! If you come in the winter though, we will have a spot by the fireplace for you:) More
