Always stay out this way when we visit, and always eat at Bare Bones. Good meals and plenty of it. Service friendly and quick.

Decent bar food options, smelled of smoked meat upon entering. Sat at the bar for faster service as needed to eat before att ending a concert in Moline. Recommend the breaded mushrooms and salad bar.
