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

Kind of a ghost town area right next to the might Mississipí. Ho hum building and the wait staff wasnít terribly pleasant or unpleasant but kind of just there. No real knowledge of the beer. When I asked what the special beer was, she commented with "the special". Isnít that special? It was the Downtown Brown, perhaps named after Tim Reidís character in my favorite show of all time (Simon & Simon), but me thinks not. Anyway, the beer was forgettable at best but the fresh hand made pretzel was pretty good. IT was here I found out Michael Redd tore his ACL and MCL and will be lost for the season. As one of the 12 remaining Bucks fans, that kind of but a damper on the rest of my day trip to Moline and Davenport. Speaking of those towns, the roll up shop on Sunday Ė nothing was open around town. And yahooís map directionsÖ forget it. Right on 12th, left on 2nd, right on 14th, left on 4th, etc. Zig-zagginí through da íPort.

Did I go into a different place than you did, JMerritt? Did this place just go WAYYY downhill? I wish I knew when the last rating was from. Anyway, in early July 2004 I visited this place and frankly it sucked. The most flavorless tuna sandwich (from a tuna steak, mind you, not chopped stuff) Iíve ever had, careless and annoyed service, and really so-so beer. I liked the look of the place, and the beer was not really bad, just a bunch of fairly by-the-numbers summer styles...but on the whole, this was a poor experience. Canít see a reason to return.

Located in an old brick building in downtown Davenport near the Mississippi. They generally have 5-6 house beers on tap, but they donít change them up very often and there isnít a whole lot of experimentation with different styles going on. Iowaís crappy beer law probably has something to do with that. If you go across the river the breweries are much more active. I have never eaten here. The beer is okay...some better than others. Itís not far off Interstate 74 and worth a visit if youíre going through town.

Iíve been here quite a few times while living in the QC, and itís a pretty good place; Iíll definitely be going back whenever I visit. The ambiance is okay, nothing special. Itís a small place that gets dim at night, but itís best to sit outside on a cooler summer day - lots of fun. The service is hit or miss with the waiters and waitresses, but the bartenders are all pretty awesome. If youíre there around closing time and are talkative, theyíre likely to hit you up with some free beers or at least free samples. The selection basically entails their beers, but theyíre pretty nice - I especially like the Cherry and the Stout. The food here is pretty good. Iíve had some different dishes and theyíve all been fantastic. The value is good to average - some of the food can be a bit pricey, but the beers are average for the area. Overall, a grand little place just off the river with some good beers and great food!

Went here to try a few and meet up with Duane. Small and busy. Right across the street from a casino. Clean appearance with reasonably priced sampler glasses. Staff was helpful, but not the most attentive. Good food.

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.

Nice little place with some great food and service. With some decent brews.

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.

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.
