I will admit that I am a foodie, I love great food and unique food parings. I stopped at the Quarry Tapas Bar for dinner and found that they had an amazing happy our menu, so that is what I ordered. I had THE most amazing Scallop Benedict and the homemade humus is great too. Two small plates and I... More

The food here is almost always top notch. And on the rare occasion that it isn't, they will do their best to make it right! The only questionable aspect is service, some nights are better than others.

There are tons of flavor choices on this menu. I really enjoy the scallops. Their salads are delicious. Try the pear. Also the goat cheese appetizer is excellent. I've never had such well seasoned edamame. They are now open on Mondays.

We enjoyed our food & service at The Quarry. We tried the Asian meatballs, Cesar salad, Osso bucco and pink grouper. Everything was fantastic! Glad we happened upon this place & will try it again.

This is one of my favorite places to go! I like landing on the Tapas side kind of early, after work around 5:15 pm. They have selected appetizers half off, and I can make these and the other apps my dinner. On my list of 'must-try' items are: Edamame, Lala's Mussels, hand-battered fresh cheese curds with blackberry dipping sauce and... More

Comfortable and classy atmosphere with great bartenders and waitstaff. The Quarry's menus are available in Tapas which is the best of both worlds.

I'm an Iowa resident and living in the "rural" part which is a bit redundant, however my wife and I enjoy fine dining. The Quarry is not "fine dining" however, the food is top notch and most certainly worth the visit. The ambiance is just fine and the staff is good, but the food is fantastic. You have a nice...

My party came to the Quarry without reservations, but the staff accomodated us right away. While the hard rock surfaces made dining a bit noisy, the food was excellent. I had salmon with an avocado salsa and rice pilaf; my spouse had what she called the best filet mignon of her life. I tasted it and agreed.
