About Us Gourmet Foods Wines & Liquors

McGregor’s Top Shelf is a unique gourmet and specialty shop located just a few blocks from the Mississippi River in downtown McGregor, Iowa. The store was opened July 1, 2008 by owners Roger & Lora Knott with the intent of combining a unique shopping experience for visitors looking for hard to find specialty items yet offering many staple items needed to support the local interests. The owners and staff of McGregor’s Top Shelf take great pride in serving its guests and taking customer care and service to the highest level.

McGregor’s Top Shelf features quality meats including a wide selection from one of Iowa’s leading meat processors, Edgewood Locker. At Top Shelf, our patrons can select almost any type or cut of meat including fish, pork, beef, poultry and buffalo. We also carry harder to find items such as snapping turtle and catfish jerky. We take pride in the quality of our products and offer a guarantee on what we sell. The majority of our beef and pork products are grown and processed locally with pride and integrity.

If meat isn’t what’s on your menu, we have many shelves stocked with products offered by well known companies such as Paula Deen, Stonewall Kitchens, Wildly Delicious, Robert Rothschild, Republic of Tea, and many more. We are sure to please any sweet tooth with snacks and fine chocolates from Marich and Lake Champlain. Top Shelf also features many locally produced products such as maple syrup, sorghum, and cheese just to mention a few. While visiting our store, be sure to check out our wonderful wine and liquor cellar to wet your whistle. We have over 120 unique wines from local and afar! We carry a full line of liquor, all at affordable prices.

We thank you for visiting our website and invite you to visit our unique store or call us for ordering details.

The Top Shelf did an awesome job of working with us to prepare and ship our Christmas Baskets. They customized them to our liking and made the entire process stress free for us. We have had more compliments from our customers regarding the quality and variety of the baskets than we have ever had in the past! We will definitely be working with them next year!!

I have to take my hat off to Roger and Lora Knott for opening the areas premiere specialty outlet store. The couple has literally bent over backwards to create a level of variety and service rarely found in rural America. One stop shopping says it all from hand cut meats to exotic marinades and spices. They even have a cozy bed and breakfast above the store where you can sit on the balcony and enjoy a glass of your favorite wine while over looking the main street of McGregor, Iowa. All I can say is thanks for bringing Top Shelf to us!

McGregor has a wonderful new business, Top Shelf, located right in the heart of our downtown. I appreciate the convenience of having a great meat market right here that offers the highest quality meats, cheese and cold cuts. Their steaks, brats, hamburger and bacon are the best ever!
