The Spencer Chamber Ambassadors paid a visit Tuesday to the Prime Rib to welcome the restaurant's new owners. While Rob and Carol Gilbertson are its new owners, the couple aren't new to the Prime Rib family. Carol Gilbertson has been with the restaurant for over 30 years, while Rob Gilbertson has been associated with it for 11 years. The pair say they are continuing the long, successful legacy of the establishment, while adding some new features, including new menu items and some refreshing of the surroundings. One addition is the certification of the restaurant as a purveyor of Gold Level Certified Angus beef, using only the finest Iowa-raised beef in their menu items.
