Okoboji Grill also culls recipes from international cuisines, adding an American take to greek gyros, housemade tzatziki sauce, and italian bruschetta and pastas.

The Alohana Hawaiian Grill revolves around the plate lunch, a staple of Hawaiian cuisine that consists of an entree, a scoop of macaroni salad, and a scoop of steamed rice. In the restaurant’s entrees, you can see the American and Asian influences that converge in Hawaiian cuisine: spam musubi, for instance, features a slice of grilled spam atop a block of rice and cinched with nori seaweed. In another dish, strips of deep-fried chicken come with bowls of katsu dipping sauce. Diners can also sample a variety of ramen-noodle bowls as well as piquant barbecued pork and beef dishes.

It was a long, 18-month process rehabbing the historic Ankeny landmark. Finally, on October 16th, 2012, local couple Matt and Jessie Sims’ cut the ribbon on their very own Number 7 brewpub. The menu had everything they’d hope for––house-made beer and slow-smoked barbeque. It also had farm-fresh ingredients, sourced from local Iowa family plots. While dining on brisket or smoked spare ribs, diners may even catch Matt and Jessie gabbing about their long but worthwhile journey renovating one of the oldest buildings in town.
