Our Story

While great food and service may be the reason our regulars come back day after day, new patrons are captivated by the retro railroad memorabilia, original framed posters, model train cars and signs, all in a casual atmosphere. 

Named after its location near railroad tracks in Clive and with the Country Club housing development right next door the Club Car has been a family-owned staple in Clive since 1996. 

When the original owners Mary Wellman & Dave Tasler recently decided to retire, longtime employee, Shawna Peterson, asked if they'd be interested in selling the Club Car to her and her husband, Rob Peterson, who also has decades of experience in the restaurant industry. They agreed so the long-standing tradition of the Club Car being a local, family owned business continues! Their daughter, Shianne Anglin, joined as a server and you might see their adorable young son stopping in from time to time. 

So if you're one of our loyal regulars, thank you and if you're looking for a fun, dynamic place, stop in today and let our family feed yours.
