“Serving only the best!”

Your Neighborhood Sports Bar. Now in Waukee, Altoona, and Still at Drake. Serving Amazing Slow Smoked Meats and Drinks in Mason Jars. The year was 1998.  Bruce decided that what Des Moines needed was a fine dining fresh seafood restaurant.  He opened Splash Seafood Bar & Grill  in his Historic Homestead Building at 3rd and Locust. The purchase of a 750 lb. capacity wood fired smoker inspired Dominic to begin testing dozens of different recipes and BBQ rub sauces. Week after week went by as these recipes were perfected and tested on Splash employees and customers. The motto of Jethro was born in those early days, as he promised himself that he would always serve large portions of his ‘Amazing Slow Smoked Meats’ and that he would never, ever, serve food from a can. Featured on United States of Bacon and season 3 of Man vs. Food!

You only have 15 minutes to eat Drake’s 2008 Missouri Valley Conference MVP’s favorite foods: Spicy pickle, bun, pork tenderloin, buffalo chicken tenders, white cheddar sauce, fried cheese cubes, Texas brisket, apple-wood smoked bacon, and a cheese burger. Oh, and you can’t forget a POUND of fries. 5 pound sandwich plus 1 pound of fries is a lot of food in 15 minutes.
