    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.

    It's not my type of place that I usually like to eat, but the food was really good! I liked the jalapeño bacon during breakfast.

    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.

    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.

    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.
