I'm guessing this place stays in business from concert goers and it's interesting beers. The food was average, sorta. I'll start with the positive: prices were reasonable, our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. Try the jalapeño beer - couldn't drink a whole glass but what a fun flavor! Everyone's food was eh. Nothing seemed homemade or... More

Loved the outside bistro setting because I love to eat outdoors whenever the weather warrants it. Enjoyed good appetizers with friends. It was busy so service wasn't as good as I would have liked.

I'll be honest. Their beer isn't anything special compared to other craft beers and a couple other local breweries. Also, their service during the day is much better than at night. I do enjoy their menu. It is basically pub food, but I think they offer more options and deliver quality food. I know some may think a buffalo chicken... More

Best fried pickles and if they have the friend jalapeno poppers you should get them. We went on Tuesday and they had huge mugs of beer for 5 dollars and it was a great place to hang out after work. I would advice to not order the nachos since they are pretty sad and have a lot of iceburg lettuce... More

We absolutely loved this place! The atmosphere was awesome! Service was great! Such a wide variety of beer to choose from. I had the 12 beer sampler just so I could taste many of the beers. Not one beer was disappointing. The food we had was also great! The menu included typical bar food to home comfort food. We would... More

This is a great local microbrewery in the Quad Cities area. There are many beer and food selections. The atmosphere is good and there are many beer specials during the week. Prices are very fair. Bent River does distribute to various locations around Illinois and Iowa.

Went in afternoon. Not as crowded. Sat at bar. Nice long one facing the vats. Got the paddle, 4 beers. Interesting choices. Jingle java for holidays an annual favorite. Uncommon unrivaled. The jalepeno will drain your sinuses! Mostly lower ABV's. Menu ok. Bartender was kind if a jerk. So hard to get good service anymore. AM sure it gets busier... More

If you like craft beer, awesome variety. Suggest the Uncommon Stout as the best (caffeine) and Undercurrent IPA. Great staff but note that service outdoors can be a bit slow. We like it slow outdoors though.
