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!

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.

Only real drawback to this place is its location. Feels like the only open business on an old, faded downtown block and downtown Davenport was never a hot social venue in the first place. Located across a busy highway from the massive parking lots for the riverboat casinos, where tourists just want to get from the bus to the boats and breathe as little fresh air as possible. Still, I thought it was pretty nice. Lightly attended, but it was a Sunday afternoon before football season. The usual brick wall ambiance, brew works was unfortunately not in view. Ordinarily Iíd have the sampler, but I was in too big a rush to copy the beer list descriptions and my ratings, so I just had the Raging River. Pretty nice. Usual restaurant-priced pub grub, so I skipped that in favor of a Hardeeís Thickburger later. Worth a visit. About two blocks from the Arsenal bridge.

Not a bad place to go for a brew in the quad cities. Food was not bad. Service was good. Beer was not outstanding but eminently drinkable.

Stumbled upon this while we were in town for daughterís figure skating tournament. They have a neat little outside "biergarten" but it was packed full oí folks while we were there. So we sat inside, where it was slightly smokey from cig smoke (yuck). Decent food, efficient wait staff, and some rather good beers (tried the "Raging River" English-style ale & "Swing" lager; both pretty good). Definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in downtown Davenport.

Nice place in Davenport along the river. Had 5 house beers on tap when I was there, they were out of the Cherry Ale. Had their sampler, $1.00 per beer. Beers were great would definitely go back.

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.

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.

visited here several weeks ago on a friday night with a group of friends. Other than being crowded and noisy, which is to be expected on the weekend, Iím looking forward to eating and drinking here again. While I thought the beer was average, at best, the food was deicious!

iíve been here a couple times. food is average as are the beers, and the service. the quesadilla was tasty enough though. iíve had about 4 or 5 of their beers, but iíve only rated one as i didnít take notes on the others.
