The Continental Hotel
March 05, 2018
The Continental Hotel is proud to have its restaurant, Lucile's Steaks and Spirits, included on the Iowa Tourism Office’s list of “99 Counties, 99 Restaurants” representing Appanoose County.
"It's exciting to be listed. We appreciate the recognition and think our restaurant is one of many reasons to visit Centerville," said Tena Stansberry, Manager of The Continental Hotel and Lucile's.
The "99 Restaurants" list includes one restaurant from every county and covers a wide range of dining options and specialty dishes. The list highlights The Continental'
rooms and steaks, while calling the property a "historic gem."
“Food is synonymous with travel. Not only do people travel for the specific purpose of sampling unique, local cuisine, but when people travel for any reason, they’re also interested in authentic dining experiences,” said Shawna Lode, manager of the Iowa Tourism Office. “Iowa’s diverse ethnic communities,range of small towns and urban centers, and a strong agricultural industry combine to make our state home to some of the most interesting and memorable breakfast, lunch and dinner opportunities in the nation.”
