When JR Sheffer and Heather Ferguson left the University of Iowa in 1993 they had a vision. The vision was to create an eatery with a menu and an atmosphere that carried on a tradition of hospitality, quality and value that you only find at the finest small town restaurants in the Midwest. The best food would be a sampling of the best of the best restaurant items that the JR, Heather and their friends have experienced on and off menus across America’s Heartland.
The vision began in Ames Iowa where the students of Dog Town were treated to a new night club called “Tazzles”. Tazzles offered discount cocktails and the biggest and loudest dance floor in Cyclone History. Tazzles night club soon partnered up with Winston’s and consecutively opened Shamrox and the Dean’s List. But after running nightclubs in Ames for a better part of the 90’s, JR and Heather decided that the Cyclone Nation would do okay with out them and it was time to get their restaurant up and running.
In 1999 The Sheffers found out about a little out of the way watering hole that was for sale in Indianola, Iowa. After discovering this little eatery in it’s prime location, JR and Heather also found a community that made them feel like this was the place that they wanted to raise their family and their vision in.
