I thoroughly enjoyed the food and new design work of the Iowa Stater Restaurant.
We recently held a Client Appreciation Event there and it was AWESOME. Everyone that attended thought the food was great and the ambiance was wonderful. We had a full house that night and lots of happy clients! The wait staff was remarkable as well. This restaurant is a welcome addition to Ames.
I’ve worked in the restaurant business for 5 years so I find myself to be a tough critic, but GREAT restaurant! Attentive staff that isn’t overbearing and is completely friendly. Laid back atmosphere with comfortable furniture. Fresh, crisp, tasteful food at an unbelievable price for both quality and quantity. I love that you can substitute a salad for chips or fries for NO additional cost. Taking Mom her for her birthday next week. (She’s vegetarian, there are plenty of options for both veggies and carnivores!)
Wow! We had a fantastic Prime Rib Dinner so reasonably priced and the best evening. It was wonderful to be able to leisurely sit and eat and visit. Our waitress was Carmel and she was available whenever we wanted her but not over bearing. The food was very flavorful and so filling we didn’t get dessert so we MUST go again and split a meal so we can do desserts. They look GREAT! I think it will be a new favorite SPOT for me also.
