    In the Village of Ponderosa, enjoy a cocktail at the sleek bar or on the rooftop patio. Wellman's and its Ingersoll bar by the same name were voted 5th in our reader-determined Top 50 Bars. Read more

    "Oh, you can get 1 order of the reg. wings for more $ but we're not doing the all you can eat anymore".....despite the fact that several people in our group had ordered the wings and did not get them!

    Bartenders are hot and quick.. love the bouncers but worst djs in West Des Moines. No requests. No rock (..even AC/DC) or country dance.... Bar would be perfect with universal dj! From Iowa

    The tuna wrap and sweet potato fries are surprisingly good for bar food.

    A great rooftop that’s perfect for a relaxing evening outside with friends. Plenty of beers on tap and a great place to watch the game. © 2013 BuzzFeed, Inc

    Great nachos, especially with steak. Had a Meat Lovers pizza with jalapeño & onions. Fantastic!

    Patio/rooftop cannot be beaten on a nice night. Solid food and good brew selection.

    Dj Eric. Ignores respectful requests. Rock music not allowed with him. Yet awesome bartenders. I'm torn. Get a new dj wells

    Bit of a warehouse, but you can see and be seen. And watch football. And drink beer, so who cares.

    If you want to see what a casting call for jersey shore looks like this is the place to be. "sweet tapout shirt bro, you must be a cage fighter!". D-Bag central.

    Great spot for a quiet, low-key weekend brunch. Open at 11am, not 10am.

    Kitchen never gets your orders right. Burgers taste like mush. And they are terribly under staffed on Sundays. Blt not toasted and hot beer glasses

    Service sucks, bathrooms are dirty, and they double charge your card. They refunded the chargers so I'm happy about that. Ps- I didn't have to have an open tab for them to add charges after I had

    They charge you extra to use a credit or debit card... Probably not coming back because that is stupid. Their pepper jack bites were awesome though.
