At first, I was worried that they were out of business, the front of the place is pretty inconspicuous and is pretty much the only thing on the block. Once inside though, itís a classy looking old timey pub atmosphere. I was in the area for business, but it seems like a pretty popular watering hole. The staff was friendly and attentive. The bartender was pretty excited to talk beer, although they were pretty busy at the time, so we didnít get to too much chatting. They had eight taps going of palatable beer; although I had to knock them one point on selection for the fact that I saw people ordering and drinking Michelob Ultra. Shame on Front Street for stocking Michelob (they have so much better to offer) and shame on the customers for ordering it. The food was quite tasty - one of the best chicken tortilla soups Iíve ever had, and a really tasty mahi mahi sandwich on ciabatta bread. Eight samples of beer plus a sandwich for just about $20 - I was pretty happy about that.

Great ambiance with a number of locals present on a Tuesday evening. The beers are a mixed bag, and, apparently the only thing available, but thatía okay. Other patrons had food, and all seemed happy.

Best microbrew in QC area IMO. The food is great and the staff are very friendly. Love the taproom deck in the summer.

A perfectly nice brewpub I stopped into a few months back. The service was freindly, the beer was good, and the food was decent. Itís a nice little place, very low key, old school, brew pubby. I liked it and Iíd go back.

Great fish tacos is the best thing I can say about this place. The beer is rather boring and nothing special. Service is usually good and the bartenders are friendly. It is a nice place to stop before going to the casino, but if youíre looking for good beer go across the river to IL and get some good craft on tap.

Visited here on Nov. 25, 2011. Nice family friendly pub and restaurant vibe. Good food selection. About a half dozen house brews on tap.

Stopped in just before closing on a Tuesday night and did a quick sampler. The bartender was busy preparing for closing, but was amiable. The beers were non-descript.

Happened across here when we were on the river front in Davenport. Small and quaint neighborhood brewpub with a handful of house taps. Beer is quality, though nothing spectacular. Still, decent spot.

This brewpub really seems to be phoning it in. All the beers had a similar watery homebrew quality to them. The Hefeweizen and Raging River were ok, but were similarly thin and watery. Apricot Ale was promising, but again lacked any distinctive character.
Atmosphere was a little hectic on a Saturday night, families having dinner, couples too, most were eating. Tables were close together and a bit cramped, yet one large table in the back was occupied by employees wrapping silverware. Worn wood floors and exposed brick and wood beams overhead. Some framed historical photos on the walls. Flatscreens above the bar, with baseball on. Bizarrely there were martinis and monster energy drinks pouring at the bar. Had the sampler and decided on a pint of the Apricot Ale, the rotating "brewmasterís selection". Plates going by looked decent, but we didnít try the food.
Sally was our server and she was great, really quick and friendly. We had to swap out one of the sampler glasses that was dirty, and she didnít miss a beat.
We werenít really feeling the vibe here, so we left after one round. Canít really recommend it, Great River, Bent River, and Bierstube are better places for a beer in the area.

Stopped in for dinner. Nice riverfront location with lots of wood/brick decor. I tried all they had to offer which wasnít bad. The bartender wasnít too talkative. Food was very tasty and well done. I had the hefe chicken. I would go back if I was there again.
