Been wanting to go to Simon’s for a long time. Decided Marianne birthday was a good time. Had great experience! Fun drinks to choose from. We had stuffed chicken and NY strip. Great flavor and serving size. I had salad she had soup. Salad good and she loved soup. Nice piece of red velvet cake to finish the night. Staff were awesome too. Owner? checked on us several times. Simon’s lived up to our high expectations!

The owner goes above & beyond to ensure your experience is great! He even ran out the door to catch us as we were leaving to tell us “happy anniversary!!” Amazing place!

This is the place to eat near Des Moines Iowa. Was able to get in with no wait near closing time. The Bread and butter could be upgraded, but everything else was exceptional.
