General Store Pub Is A Little-Known Iowa Restaurant That’s In The Middle Of Nowhere, But Worth The Drive

Not many restaurants can claim to be permanently immortalized in a work of art, but General Store Pub in tiny quarry town Stone City, Iowa can do just that. Famous American painter Grant Wood, known best for his portrait “American Gothic” painted in the same year, also completed “Stone City Iowa” in 1930. In the painting, what was then the town’s general store sits on the right side next to the Wapsipinicon River. It’s a lovely, pastoral picture that captures middle America in the early 20th century.

Look out for the nightly specials, including Prime Rib Night every Saturday and BBQ Rib Night every first Friday of the month. Check out the restaurant’s website and Facebook page for more information.
