Mid size liquor/wine and beer store. Nothing special about the vibe - its about what you'd expect. Quality is good - stuff was reasonably fresh. Prices were about right for bombers and packs. Singles pricing was pretty expensive - an average mix six pack would cost close to $12-$14. Service was great - staff was helpful and friendly. Selection was pretty good for macro, craft, but imports were very thin.

UPDATE 6/29/2015: They've stopped selling mix-and-match 6-packs under a flat rate, and have switched to individually pricing the beers. Not only does this mean it takes longer to go through the checkout, but it's almost guaranteed you're going to pay more. Without even considering the prices, my most recent 6-pack came to $12.34, which is about a 23% price increase. Not happy with this decision.

Of the various Hy Vee Wine And Spirits that I've been to, this is the one with both the best selection and price of mix-and-match 6-packs ($9.99). An entire side of an aisle is devoted to bombers and 750ml bottles. Although I couldn't find a specific beer I was looking for (Xingu Black Beer), they went above and beyond to help me find it. On top of all of this, for every 12 6-packs or bombers you buy, you get a 13th one for free. Highly recommended.

Ambiance is bright and the store is clean. Selection was good, pretty good bomber selection. They also have deals if you sign up for if you reach a certain amount of bombers/craft sixers purchased, you get a discount. Overall it was a pretty good bottle shop.

This store is the only Hy-Vee liquor I have seen separate from a grocery, and it is by itself in the shopping mall connected to Wal-Mart on West Kimberly. I go out of my way to visit this store because their selection is the best I have found in Davenport and perhaps in the Quad Cities, although the Hy-Vee in Rock Island is comparable. The best part though is their $8.99 mix and match 6-pack section, because it is by far the largest selection I have seen, and many of the beers they have available cost more than $8.99 for a six pack by themselves. Additionally, the staff is always friendly and offers to help you find what you are looking for, and they have a frequent customer reward program where if you buy any 12 6-packs, you get one free, so make sure you ask for a reward card if you plan on returning. I would definitely recommend checking it out, it is worth going a little out of your way.
