    One of my favorite spots in Des Moines! The sweet potato tots are unique and worth a try. Plus, in the summer, the rooftop patio is a perfect way to enjoy the season.

    Good food in general but they can't cook an egg to order to save their lives! I've had more problems with eggs here. It's really starting to get on my nerves! Great service.

    Serves best hangover breakfast ever. Great atmosphere, sits on the river. Drinks are cold and the food is outstanding breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    The Grinder pizza sports a bright and chunky tomato sauce, savory dollops of housemade grinder meat, onion, green bell pepper, jalapeño, and mozzarella.

    The sweet potato tots have a sweet and savory version. I highly recommend the sweet version. They come with marshmallow dipping sauce!

    Used to be really great, but quality took a dive after new ownership. Majority of the fantastic, friendly waitstaff is gone now too. Rarely feel like going now.

    Not a great place for large groups. They can accommodate only one large group at a time. Despite this, lots of people show up with large groups and the wait time for them can get really long.

    The Cajun po boy with deep fried shrimp and crawfish is awesome...80's music and deep fried fish is a good combination.

    Absolute worst service in Des Moines. Many open tables yet can't sit down because kitchen is backed up?! WTF. Can't even get drinks knowing we have to wait for food. Ridiculous. Eat anywhere else.
