I met a friend here who was in a conference down the road at WIU. There aren't that many places to eat around the campus. I thought she would enjoy the festive German atmosphere, and she did. However, when I arrived and sat at the bar, it literally took over 20 minutes to get service. And I had to beg... More

a pretty good time at The Bier Stube. The food is always very good. The variety of meal choices is exceptional and prices are fair and reasonable. The service can vary a little depending upon how busy they are. We've never had a problem though. We are just a little more patient during those times. I always have a pretty... More

Had high expectations for a traditional German meal. Staff was friendly. Beer was good. The food itself was just average...sausages weren't anything special. It was the most paltry dollop of sauerkraut I've ever seen. The spatzle definitely did not compare to traditional German ones...these were dry and tasteless. If I come to Moline again, I'd definitely eat elsewhere...

We stopped in for a quick bite before the hockey game. Service was good. Friendly staff. I ordered a bowl of chili and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. It was a huge bowl. Great value and very tasty. Tried a chocolate beer which was very good. Nice atmosphere. It wasn't really loud like other places in downtown... More

Food portions are below average food is average. They do have a great selection of Beers to choose from better than most. Staff is fast and friendly. I would say the others that gave this place a 5 out of 5 must have been drunk, employee or owner. Overall good place to stop for a beer and food only after... More

My wife and I were in town helping our daughter with a college visit. We thought this restaurant would be a good place for a casual ethnic dinner-wrong!! My wife waited 30 minutes for her cocktail and we waited 45 minutes for our dinner. Our food was cold. When we asked for the manager all she offered was excuses. Any... More

I'll be honest. I think the Bier Stube has slipped over the years. The East Village location was by far my favorite where the food was superbly prepared day in and day out. The place was well-managed and was much more focused on German beer and it feels like the newer locations are more craft beer focused. My all time... More

Yeah, it's not Germany, but if you are in Moline and want some authentic food, this is the place. Seriously, if you can get 4/5 German food in IL, you have to worship this place. Grew up with German grandparents cooking for me, and this is where I go to renew my soul. Please add Oxtail soup :)

We had a great dinner here passing through Moline. We loved everything we ate--several types of wurst, beer (the Konig Ludwig by recommendation), apple strudel for dessert, etc. The red cabbage was delicious! I hadn't had wurst with curry ketchup in ages and was very happy to find it here ('Berliner style'). With the fun atmosphere and our friendly server,... More
