Best wine bar in 20 miles.... No... Make that 50 miles... Easy....
Good wine, good beer, good music. Great place to relax and unwind.
Great atmosphere and the martinis are even better!! My wife and I went there for a date and had a great time. The bartender even made a martini that was a seasonal item and was off the menu for my wife which was great. The bartenders were so friendly and I can't wait to go back.

This place can't be beat! No matter what you're hungry for Big Dave and Holly's won't disappoint!!! From the soups and salads to the fabulous Sweet Apple Pork the food is simply great! Then when you're all done eating don't miss out on the ice cream, and if you're really lucky there will be homemade pie! Everything is homemade with lots of love.
We stop in for lunch while going to the American Picker store.Small LITTLE place with really great food.the PORK tenderloin sand was DELISH ,the burgers were good also,But there Cajun soup was amazing.Super busy place. Loved it..
Holly has phenomenal food. Summer is coming and I can't wait to eat her ribs. Her staff is always pleasant and even though it's small they always make room. Give it a try because you can't judge a book by its cover when it comes to this little gem.

The Crane & Pelican Cafe

Reviews:
Wifey and I finally got a date night and decided to give Crane and Pelican a try. It's a quaint place close to the River Drive strip in LeClaire, with views of the Mississippi. The restaurant is in the historic Dawley House, which was apparently built in 1851. There's local art for sale on the walls, which adds to the ambiance. We started the meal with the cranberry hummus platter, which sounded just weird enough to try. It was delicious. I ordered the pecan crusted salmon with blueberry compote, which was mouthwatering. It came with generous portions of mashed potatoes and broccoli. Wifey had the open faced roast beef on beer bread. The beef is from Sawyer Farms in Princeton, Iowa. Wifey loved it. This was one of those meals that your brain tells you to stop because you're full, but your mouth tells you to power through. We powered through and I followed it up with some house made limoncello. My only gripe is that the bread that came on the side of the plate was tough, which seemed like an aberration, given the otherwise splendid meal. The menu has so many items that sound good, I feel like I could go back again and again. I loved this place - the atmosphere, the food, the local ingredients and the views were all superb. What else can I say? Go there now.
This is my choice of where to eat when in Le Claire. The food is outstanding and the wait staff friendly and efficient Overall a very pleasant experience.
The restaurant is in a home built in the 1800's set atop a hill over looking the Mississippi River. The corn fritters are amazing, also had the open faced roast beef dinner which was just the right size and the bread that it is on was a type of beer bread which gives it a very unique taste. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice quite dinner with amazing food and great views!

Had brunch there last Sunday at noon. Service was mediocre and I had to ask the hostess for a waitress to initially serve our table and again for someone to take my credit card. Food was decent at best although the choices were very limited. They ran out of some lunch items and no one came out of the kitchen to refill them. There are many brunch options in the QC area and I won't be going back here.
We stopped here for dinner after having the restaurant recommended by some locals the night before, We always like to dine at the bar so didn't feel the need for a reservation. Upon arrival we were introduced to Shawn the bartender and ordered cocktails. We were very disappointed to discover that they don't serve dinner at the bar here, and also that the restaurant was completely booked because of prom and Mother's Day. However, after talking to Shawn and asking him for some dining recommendations in the area, he offered us the option of ordering a few appetizers at the bar. We picked two, and after ordering them the very pleasant and efficient hostess found us at the bar to offer us a table that had been a no-show. We opted to stay at the bar with Shawn and enjoyed the beef slider appetizer as well as the spicy chicken flatbread. So, I'm not sure how wonderful the food is here, but they definitely went out of their way for us.
If I could sum this review up in one word....."EXSPEEEEEEENDSIVE!!!! Yes, it is pricey. The menu starts at $20 a plate and goes to $38 a plate, unless you want to include the rack of lamb for 2...which is $60. Most dishes are around $27-$28, appetizers are around $9-$10, and desserts are $9. There is a full bar with top shelf liquors, an extensive wine list and about 15 types of beer on hand. Enough of the price info...on with the review. The view is nice. We(wife and I) asked for a window seat, so we could watch the Mississippi river flow as we enjoyed some quiet time together. The atmosphere was top notch and the service was great...just a great romantic evening type of place. The food was delicious, but servings were small....even for the high price you pay. I had the "Cherry lamb chops" served with potatoes($30). While the lamb was good, it was served with 3 YOUNG red potatoes cut into smaller pieces, and a small salad. Wife had a seafood pasta thing($24) and a small salad as well. We both shared a flaming Greek cheese appetizer($11), and we both had ice tea($2). Total bill was $69 not including tax or tip. What I disliked about this place, aside from the price and small portions, was they didn't offer to make things to my liking. I asked if they served a TRUE Caesar salad(with anchovies) , and the waitress said "no". Did not offer to have the kitchen make one for me. Also, we left hungry....REALLY!!!! When we left, we went to Trattoria Tiramisu, where the kitchen was more than happy to make my Caesar salad, had some coffee and canolli. But, all is not lost. I was able to find out they have a Sunday brunch from 10am until 2 pm for $19.95. It includes crab legs, prime rib, salads and over 20 types of dessert. We will be returning some day for the brunch.

Came here on a whim for a special evening. Lovely place, love the paper table cloth and crayons. Ambience was pleasant, but can get loud depending on other patrons (there was a very loud lady two tables down who luckily left!). Had duck and salmon, very well done. Nice flavors. Wait staff were helpful with suggestions and let us taste test wines. Would definitely come back!!
Nice experience tonight. Very nice young waitress. Food was good. The menu is very limited. They had good entertainment. They were quite busy and the service was still pretty good. I had the salmon. Nothing special, but not bad. My wife enjoyed the Mac and cheese bread was better this time.
Not real busy on a Tuesday. Somehow our reservation wasn't there but it was not a problem. We got seated in a roomy booth overlooking the river. I started with the Caesar salad. I asked for anchovies and they brought me several. They were amazing and I was surprised they were not offered when I ordered the salad. The bill later revealed I was charged an extra $1. Well worth it. I ordered the salmon but asked for it simply grilled and with the sides usually served withy the filet. I was pleased that this request was taken in stride and perfectly acclimated. The salmon came out perfect. One friend got the filet and loved it. The other got the pizza which he said had great flavor but the crust was a little soggy. We had the Malbec wine by the glass and it was good. Yelp lists this as 2$$ but it should be more. Other places on the Internet list it as 3$.

Holy cow, what a schnitzel sandwich!
Food was great. Jägersnitzel was delicious, spaetzle was some of the best I have had. Service was a bit slow, but I did get a free beer since I was a guest at the Holiday Inn Express. Sweet!
Good place to stop while travelling on I-80. Tanya had the Turkey Reuben and I had a bbq burger. Both were presented well and tasted good. I really enjoyed the green beans and bacon side dish. I definitely would recommend. BTW, they offer wifi access.

Happy Joe’s Pizza & Ice Cream Parlor

This review is only for the ice cream parlor as I did not have a chance to try the pizza. With that said the ice cream is awesome! They have something called birthday surprise. This is birthday cake ice cream on steroids. I think they have a total of 8 flavors. The ice cream is very smooth and tasty and worth stopping by. it is also very reasonably priced. #Yelp100
This restaurant is not handicap accessible. Drove out from Bettendorf and saw there was a big step at the front door. VERY difficult to get my mom in her transport chair into the restaurant. Had we been closer to home I would not have attempted this. The only other entrance was at the back and it was a long staircase. Isn't there a law about public restaurants being accessible?
Place was fun for kids because of games and atmosphere but food was only so so......edible but would not go go back the for the food:(

The Black Watch Room

Driving back to Chicago thru Quad Cities, I stopped for dinner at Black Watch. It was easy to find and the views onto the golf course were great, especially if you're from Chicago where most "views" are flat and urban. I had the 3 Cheese crusted Fillet that came with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. My friend had the herb crusted Halibut and, roast potatoes and grilled asparagus. My steak was cooked to med-rare perfection. The topping on the Halibut was excellent, the 3 Cheese crust was good but I prefer just Gorgonzola. I like asparagus if it is not too mature; theirs was just past "baby" and was nicely grilled. We filled up on the complimentary herb bread and did not leave room for dessert. The bartender mixed great Manhattan's and made sure I got one with lots of bitters. They had a good selection of tap beers; much better than I'd expect at a golf course. We did not drink wine and cannot comment on their selection. Venturing out to the patio area we struck up a conversation with the manager / owner. Very interesting to speak with and gave us a nice history of the place. Also met the golf pro and shared a drink as we enjoyed the sunset. Great food at a good price. I look forward to my next trip west so I can share a drink with the manager, try something else from the menu and sample their wine selection.
I don't remember having a meal this bad in a long time. We stopped here based on the stellar Yelp reviews, and immediately recognized it as a vaguely desperate attempt at an upscale restaurant out of any appropriate context, as exemplified by the outdoor patio overlooking the 'scenic' view of the mostly-green golf course and the brand-new subdivision houses. The menu for lunch has almost no vegetarian options, and even the meat options are heavy on the beef and pork. Luckily, (or so I thought), there was an open-faced portabello mushroom sandwich on the menu. I ordered it. It's my understanding that a sandwich involves some kind of carbohydrate component. How deluded I've been! This dish was a tiny, burned-up portabello mushroom with jarred roasted red peppers on it, topped with grilled asparagus and pepper jack cheese. The cheese had obviously been hot and melted at one point, but had re-frozen into a gummy dairy blanket on the once-innocent vegetables beneath it. The "totties" were no better, which our waittress promised were "better than french fries." Try-- an unappetizing version of homemade potato chips with inconsistent thicknesses and levels of floppiness versus crispness. My mom ordered the turkey reuben sandwich, which had also evidently been sitting out for awhile after it was first made. But the most egregious aspect of the meal was the visible caking of salt over both of our entire dishes. Everything on my plate was only made edible by brushing off the crystals of salt that burned my tongue with every bite. I choked down every ounce of the overpriced, miniscule lunch-- then filled up on baby carrots in the car!
I had high hopes for this place based on the reviews but was really, really disappointed. While the restaurant's decor and ambiance are high end, it seems woefully out of place in this locale. It was a beautiful day and we chose to eat outside on the deck. The view of the golf course was pretty but the service was sloooowww. It was only us and one other party. I don't know what they would do if they actually had a dinner rush. Maybe throw up their hands and say make it yourself! The food was way over-seasoned and cold. A hot sandwich should actually be hot, not have sat around for 15 minutes. I think mine did. It was fairly disgusting. Would never recommend this place to anyone.
