Steakhouse

Flame creates the sizzle at our high-end American steakhouse. The finest cuts of beef and seafood are prepared to impress and delight in an atmosphere of rich wood, comfortable colors, fresh flower centerpieces and warm lighting. Traditional steaks or chops of beef, lamb or pork are prepared as cuts or on the bone. Try our impressive Ruthie's signature line of steaks such as the filet marmalade, Maryland ribeye or, our latest, the French onion filet. Seafood is at its best in the hands of Chef Zeph Leaton. His attention to detail and delicate touch complete the best sautéed or grilled fish and seafood dishes imaginable. Chilean sea bass, wild-caught salmon, Australian lobster tail, and Argentinian red shrimp help to complete a menu dedicated to extraordinary dining.

To complement your fine dining experience, enjoy libations you’d expect from a metropolitan hot-spot. Our wine selection is vast and designed to be the best in Eastern Iowa.

The seating is not crowded and the wait staff are excellent. It is separated from the casino so there is no cigarette smoke drifting into the eating area. It is a scratch kitchen and the food is high quality. It offers a quaint experience with a fine dining ambience.

A loud group in the middle of the main dining room. Even with those issues it was a great experience.

I would suggest that the head chef bring together the wait staff prior to opening and review each offering on the menu. Especially the entrees. I'm sure most patrons have questions, especially for non steak offerings.

It's all booths with no tables. The steaks were no better than we have at home. There wasn't a single unadulterated vegetable on the menu. They have the only salt shaker that you can't get salt out of. Not worth the price.

It was my first time ever eating there. The experience was very memorable. The waiting staff was perfectly attentive and timely in everything she did. The steak I had was the best steak I've ever had at a restaurant. The appetizers " fried oysters and Pheasant Civet " were delicious as well. I will definitely go back again.

We usually only go there for special occasions since it is so expensive but also so good. It used to be a one of a kind experience because the food, staff and ambiance were so special. We went there for our wedding anniversary and felt rushed even though there were plenty of tables open. Our server must have been used to people getting in and out quickly. We wanted to take our time. The kitchen was out of the items we wanted to order so we had to pay extra for something else similar. My wife's steak tasted excellent but was very fatty even after asking for a leaner cut. My seabass was very small for the price and tasted awful fishy. We also shared a shrimp cocktail and had soup with our meal along with some mixed drinks. The bartender did an excellent job. However, one of our shrimp still had the "blood" line in it and our server seemed confused about why we wanted a different one. He also didn't seem to have a good knowledge of the menu since he had to keep checking with the kitchen when we had questions. Another server also refilled our water and took away our plates for us. Overall, the experience was just fair even after about $180 with tip for the two of us. We will probably go somewhere else for our next special occasion.

We both had the same steak type Saturday 4/24 (Maryland Ribeye) , it was so fatty, grisly, and tough. For $49 each we both left half of it on the plate. I have had steaks here before and was always good. Very very disappointed for the cost we pd. Not once did the waitress ask us how our food was. She seemed to just be to busy helping others. Will be awhile before we come back and spend $125.00 I can go to the Butcher Block in Cedar Rapids, and have the best steak you can have, for a lot less money. Scott Frank
