    Food was excellent. Service was friendly and helpful, very knowledgeable about the steaks and wine. However, took over 20 min for bar to make drinks upon first ordering. Server said they were busy (this was Saturday night) and they weren't expecting it. It was Augustana's parent weekend. Not sure why they wouldn't expect it. Good thing we weren't in a hurry. We waited to order our main course after appetizers and by then server was busy with other tables. Took awhile to come back to get order. Were there for over 2 1/2 hours and we were a party of 3.

The food was cooked to perfection and we enjoyed ourselves immensely! We will definitely visit Bass Street Chop House when we are in Rock Island again!

    Enjoyed a great meal once again. Had the pasta special. Was warned it was spicy hot (appreciated the warning). It was but not so much that I couldn't eat it. Was delicious. My husband had the filet. It was done perfectly.

    We previously belonged to a country club that has since disbanded. The Bass Street Chop House is our new favorite place to celebrate a special occasion. This week, the occasion was our 53rd wedding anniversary. The steaks were great, the mushrooms au gratin is a house specialty, the wine was very good, and the service was outstanding! We will be back soon!

    I was traveling through Bettendorf and wanted a good steak dinner. Bass Street can compare with any major steak house in the country. Choices for Prime, American Kobe and Choice steaks made my mouth water even before ordering. I chose a prime Delmonico which was served perfectly done. Salad was on a cold plate - my choice of side was asparagus. This was the only disappointing thing in the meal - the stalks were thick, woody and raw. Extensive wine list and great coffee and dessert round out the meal. Some people say this is a pricy place -- but for food of this quality the prices are in line.

  • Too pricey for what you get
    eurydice
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    While the food was decent, it was much to expensive for what we got. My husband had the $18.95 Prime Rib Sandwich and the meat was not even 1/4" thick. My $14.95 burger was good, but again much too pricey. If we hadn't had a coupon for one of the sandwiches for free, two sandwiches, one glass of wine and one beer would have cost almost $50, plus tip.

    Decent food but definitely not as good as last visit. Waiter didn't inform us that pasta special was unavailable until we ordered it. Also normal asparagus used for appetizer wasn't available but they comped that for us. Waiter did not seem very experienced. He asked twice if we wanted dessert or cocktails after he already brought us some. Not bad service or food but for the price range I would expect more.

    Had a restaurant.com discount to use with a minimum $50.00 purchase. Decided on Bass Street Chop House for husband's birthday dinner, something we wouldn't do, but was reasonable with the discount. Sticker shock on the menu, portions, and how the meals were cooked. Husband's seafood was overcooked and some tastless, chewy or fishy tasting. While my salmon was fabulous, the portion was lacking. At payment time, the fine print was pointed out..."not valid for use on Friday." You got it...we went on Friday. Billed $78 for unsatisfactory meal. While server was VERY efficient and did a great job, we will not be returning to the Chop House.

    I have always had a good experience at bass street but they dropped the ball this time. Had a reservation for 7 bit didn't get seated untill 7:30 and they tried to put me in the bar area. Waitress was rude pretty much the whole time then the cooks over cooked my wife's steak by 2 levels and over cooked mine by at least 1. They did take my wife's steak off the bill, but only because I didn't have time to wait for a new steak because I had already been there well over an hour and a half. I think I still like the place as I am a relatively frequent customer, but I could be pushed away if this level of service continues.

    Our group of 14 was celebrating two 80th birthdays. The staff was helpful in advance, helping to suggest menu choices that were typed up on souvenir menus with a heading about the event purpose, date, etc. We were welcomed, escorted to a private dining area, and were well-served throughout the evening. The food was delicious, wine suggestions excellent, and we had a wonderful time overall.

    They were very busy, but we were waited on promptly, and our food was served in a timely manner. I had the aged Delmonico steak and it was great, and not a strong taste that I thought it might have. We had a wonderful waitress. The only comment is that the steak could have been warmer when served.

Great wine recommendation from our waiter (we had cherry pie pinot noir) and the steaks were outstanding. All in all....great dinner with my two sons. Highly recommend.

    In town for the John Deere Golf Classic. The restaurant was busy, but should have been manageable. We placed our entire order at the same time-appetizers, salads , and entrees. We had to wait one hour and 45 minutes for our appetizers to arrive-one crab cake, one scallop, and one order of portobello fries. The steak entrees were ok, but disappointing. The waitress was extremely nice and did the best she could do. We asked to see the manager, who eventually came. He comped our appetizers, but only made excuses for the kitchen and the slow service. The manager should never need to make excuses for the kitchen. From start to finish, we were in the restaurant over three hours. Don't think we will be back.

    I get the pork chop everytime. It is my fave. Order early so the chef can start it. Mine was do e enough this time, as I request well done. When the server asked me to cut into it & make sure it was good, I had to send it back. After being cut, it was too dry & not the normal fantastic. I think had they cooked it longer initially, it would have held the juices like it always does. I will return!
