I Like this restaurant. It's known for it chicken wings boneless or bone. It's bar food but pretty good fried food. Tvs's all over. Great place for a drink friends and chicken wings or a sandwich.

Great burger and tons of TV's. The most interesting thing was definitely the fried potato salad. It's a must try. It was kind of neat how the windows/walls went up like garage doors to let the "outside in" service was quick. I believe it used to be called Saints something or other?

Yes, this is a bar. But most of the people in there around noon are there to eat, not drink. They sometimes have one daily special, like chicken and noodles, or you can get a classic: One of the top five (IMHO) tenderloins in town.A tenderloin is a cut of pork, pounded thin, coated in crumbs and deep fried. It's served on a bun, but the loin itself is usually so large, it sticks out all sides.

Lunch specials were pork tenderloin sandwiches which were very good as the noon special. Service was excellent and many locals seemed to be here for lunch. This is a bar but it is a better than average sports bar as the food was quite tasty. My guests enjoyed their meal and were well pleased with the pork.

What can I say about the pork tenderloin that hasn’t already been said! It’s a phenomenal sandwich! The tenderloin is almost as big as my shoe, and it was delicious! I can see why it’s so highly rated! The crinkle cut fries were a perfect compliment! I can’t remember her name, but the owner was very friendly and nice too!

Appanoose Rapids

Reviewed By jeffsvarverud

Wow what a change from last Easter. This year $25 bought you a choice of Ham, that was all no roast beef or Turkey only ham at the carving station. Beef and noodles, mashed potatoes, baked chicken or fish. The beef noodles were only warm. One vegetable dish, running scrambled eggs French toast and two salads. Utterly disappointing. The change of ownership is evident in every aspect of the restaurant. It is so sad to see a wonderful restaurant slip into a less than average establishment. I will have to locate a new establishment for next year.Jeff -- we are sorry to hear about your experience during our Easter brunch; we noticed that you and your wife posted one-star negative comments on both Facebook and TripAdvisor for everyone to see, but yet, during brunch none of you spoke to us, the owners, to tell us about your experience, we were there the entire time. We do believe you both and we see your observations and concerns as genuine; we wish we had done something to make it right while it was happening. We are sorry and we wish you well.Having said that, we respectfully reject your comment "It is so sad to see a wonderful restaurant slip into a less than average establishment". We had 120 guests on Easter brunch, our largest Sunday crowd since we started Sunday brunches, and we only received two negative comments, yours. Several of our guests talked to us as they were leaving and were very pleased with the buffet selections, drinks, service and ambiance. Furthermore, to comment on your 'change of ownership' observation, compared to last year, Appanoose Rapids had on Easter brunch: live piano music, fresh flowers on tables, flowers pots out front, new lounge furniture, new POS system, two new soda fountains, one additional servers' station, a handcrafted brunch cocktail list and yet the team of chefs that cooked the food fresh on that morning was virtually the same as last year. Change of ownership came with a new vision for Appanoose Rapids and we are investing and working very hard to make a difference in Ottumwa.
