Since 1938

True family restaurants are few and far between these days, but serving quality, homemade food at reasonable prices has been more than a career for the Ross family, it's a family tradition since 1938.

Harold Ross truly is a textbook example of the "American Dream." Growing up in rural Iowa, Harold had some experience both working on the family farm and with one of the first Maid Rites in Iowa. He enlisted in the Navy (even playing semi-pro football there) and while serving overseas, dreamed of starting his own restaurant, where folks would feel just like they were at home.


Everybody love Ross'

Since 1938 Ross' Restaurant has been a must-stop destination for Presidential candidates and other celebrities.

Here are just a few of our many distinguished guests that have dined at our iconic establishment.
