A different Des Moines, IA request

I lived in DM for awhile and this weekend I'll be going back to have a get together with a bunch of college friends. We've all been in DM at least a few times and we've been to a few places, but I'd like to hear from the posters here about places for groups to get together.

We'll probably be going to Hessen Haus once, and probably Felix & Oscars as well. Buca's would've been perfect but they're closed now.

Any suggestions for a couple (5 - 7) 30 something guys? Drinking isn't particularly high on the list, but someplace to sit back after a meal and shoot the sh!t would get bonus points. Double extra bonus points for a good dessert selection (ok, that's just me asking...but still!).
