A fine selection of wine and beer awaits you in the Canary Underground, located in the basement of Prairie Canary on Main Street. Make sure you sample some of the appetizers on their menu. The restaurant has been featured by The New York Times and The Boston Globe.
Begin with a house salad or a savory cup of soup at the Peppertree at the Depot Crossing. You will get the full depot experience when a train passes by and the floor rattles. If the weather is nice, grab a seat on the patio. Located in Grinnell's historic train depot, this restaurant has the perfect atmosphere for date night.
Select a specialty pizza or choose your own topping combinations at Pagliai's. Get a seat close to the open kitchen so you can see your pizza prepared and then fired in the stone hearth oven.
Decadent desserts await you at Relish Grinnell, located in a quaint yellow Victorian house on the edge of Central Park. Also enjoy something from their drink menu, perhaps a signature cocktail. The restaurant prides themselves on using local foods with global flavors, and they use seasonal ingredients from the Grinnell area whenever possible. You'll also find flavors inspired by the Midwest and the Middle East, and nearly everywhere in between.
