Restaurants in Ottumwa, Iowa?

I'm looking for a nice restaurant where a large extended family can enjoy a Saturday evening dinner during our reunion in a couple of weeks. The group is likely to be in the ballpark of 25 or 30 people, perhaps as many as 40, and will include tykes to nonagenarians.

I'm not particularly optimistic. About 10 years ago, the banquet room at an old downtown hotel served overcooked meats and canned vegetables. More recently, a place on the north side of town on North Jefferson worked fairly well, but now it seems set up for a rowdier crowd.

Searching this site turned up an earlier question, but no answer to it. One Web search turned up Roe's, but it seems like we would have heard about that before—unless, of course, it's a new addition.

Another Web search turned up quite an interesting result. According to it, the best restaurant in Ottumwa is Taso's Steak House ... which is in Oskaloosa.

We want good food, but we would like to not have to leave Ottumwa to get it. Will we have a choice?

Thanks in advance!
