If you go in the bar, watch out!.
China Sea used to be the spot in Des Moines - back when they had live bands and you could dance. No longer. Run down, food I would never eat (kinda dirty inside) and the bartender has tried to short change us the last 2 times! No more. There are far better places to eat/drink than there. Try the Lighthouse or Yardarm for something cheap and good quality.
