THE WALLACE CENTERS OF IOWA: sustainable food & civility initiatives

The Gathering Table

Where Farm & Table are Just Steps Apart

Friday Lunches and Dinners

Re-opening April 27 for the 2018 season.

Located inside the historic barn replica, the Gathering Table restaurant offers lunch and dinner menus centered around the more than 40 varieties of fresh produce grown in the 12 acre on-site garden and orchard. Seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables that are rich in flavor and beauty are complimented by beef, pork, lamb, poultry, cheese and grains. Menu options change almost weekly.

Walk-ins or reservations are welcome for lunch. Please make your reservation by 3 pm for dinner. Live music is on hand every Friday evening; call us to find out who is performing.

The Gathering Table may need to close because of private events such as reunions and wedding receptions. These dates are posted in advance. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please call 641-337-5019 for reservations or email Lisa Swanson.

Please note: Beginning April 1, 3.5% will be added for credit card payments.
