Though I hadn't taken the opportunity to try Olde Boston's, my wife, who is from there, had a favorable opinion of the place but she hadn't been there in years. Finally, we decided to give it a try.

Great food, great atmosphere, my place to take visitors for lunch or dinner. Nice party room, pool darts, lots of room. Nice variety on the menu, from steak to flat breads.

Stopped here as I got into town on RAGBRAI. Got seated right away. Waitress was very knowledgeable about their beer offerings and got us all set with excellent beers. The ribeye was well prepared and tender. Sides were excellent. One of the best meals we had all week. Service was top notch.

Olde Boston's offers some great specials. I personally like Wednesday's where all day you can have any sandwich or salad for $6. I haven't ate their Sunday buffet in a long time but when I did, it was very good.
