COVID-19 Update:
In light of Governor Reynolds’ declaration of a State of Public Health Disaster Emergency in the state of Iowa, we will be closing Caroline’s Restaurant, Riverboat Lounge, and Potosa Spa immediately. We will continue to offer room service, food-to-go and drive-up options at Caroline’s Restaurant during this time. We will also be working with clients to determine how to manage any events that are impacted by this announcement.
We will continue to keep our community abreast of the latest information on our social media channels. We are saddened to close our doors, but we are confident that the steps being taken today across the country and the world will result in better outcomes for everyone.
