About Us

Casual family dining with a touch of class...

The Boike family opened their first restaurant, Boike's Country Inn, in Ossian, IA on February 3rd, 1993. The restaurant had a comfortable family atmosphere, and yet just the right amount of class. Then in 1998 the Boike family was asked if they were interested in opening another restaurant in Fayette, IA. 

On September 1st, 1998 the Boike's opened Boike's Trailside Inn, at 106 7th St, what had been the former location of Ott's Drive-In. This location suited the restaurant well, until the former home of The Sugar Bowl, at 152 S. Main Street became available on June 12th, 2002. Due to space restrictions at their location, the Boike's decided the move was neccessary.
