Easy enough to find with plenty of parking nearby. The place is kinda dingy and stunk of cooking grease from the kitchen. Very busy for a weeknight. I thought the beer selection was a bit slim. Three stouts and three wheat beer variations. They also had Schell's 1919 Root Beer on tap. The beers I did have were very good. The oatmeal stout being the highlight. Sitting at the bar you get a good look at the brewing equipment and the fermenters. The beer is good but the smells coming from the kitchen turned my stomach and I had enough after 45 minutes.

Edit: Four years later and I return. The various scores would change but my overall impression of the place has not. Service was horrible. The bartenders were on the opposite end of the bar doing shots with their friends instead of tending to their customers. I tried the food this time and thought it was palateable. Interesting mix of beers available but did not get to try much because the service was so uncaring. By far the worst service I ever experienced in the Quad Cities.
