Since 1982

Iowa Beef Steak House was founded in 1982 by Henry Schnieder. In early 2015, brothers Joe & Will Kellogg, who grew up in the neighborhood, bought Iowa Beef Steakhouse from Henry. The brothers made several small improvements to the menu and introduced a more modern approach to day-to-day operations. Iowa Beef Steak House is known for serving a wide selection of steaks cooked over charcoal, fantastic side dishes, and offering a wide selection of drinks from their full bar. The wood in the eatery, most of the furnishings and objects on the walls came from a barn in Southern Iowa. They pride themselves on being a true Iowa steakhouse, using as many ingredients and items from all over the country. Try their kid's menu Grilled Cheese at $5, Chicken Breast at $7 & Hot Dog at $5. Takeout options are available.
