First time at the new location, haven’t visited in several years. The Bacon Wrapped Scallops were amazing as usual, as well as the Portobello Fries. Our $74 Steak was overcooked but they corrected it with no issue. Aside from the Bone-in Delmonico being ridiculously priced, the others prices were reasonable compared to 3 years ago with inflation and the quality you receive . The Macaroni & Cheese was probably the least favorite dish I’ve had from Bass Street. Left something to be desired. Overall an excellent meal. Great Wine selection. Good Service.

Great service with wonderful food and drinks. Only change would be them fixing a series of three lights that were flickering. Highly recommend the tomato soup with blue cheese- delightful!

It was our first visit to the new location…
My wife and I invited another couple from Reynolds, Illinois to join us…
Caleb, our waiter, asked us about hors d’oeuvres…
Being four of us in attendance, I asked how many shrimp were included in the cocktail, to which Caleb replied that there were eight…
I asked everyone at our table who would like a couple of shrimp…
Everyone said yes…
When Caleb brought the shrimp cocktail, there were six on the plate, with the explanation that they were bigger than usual, so we only get six!
So I am guessing we were supposed to cut up the shrimp to divvy it up?
Really?…
THAT WAS CHEAP!…
It certainly wasn’t first class…
And let’s don’t blame Caleb…
That is a management decision…
I have worked as a waiter myself at Flemings in Walnut Creek, CA, and if I was told to do that, I would have told the preparer to put two more on the plate, and they could dock my pay…
Let me say it again:
THAT WAS CHEAP!
And…
The little tiny bowl for the shrimp sauce (to be shared by four guests), was less than generous, too…
Next:
I ordered the Alaskan King Crab Legs…
Probably the most expensive item on the menu…
Caleb said the entree was one pound…
If it was one pound, it certainly wasn’t one pound and one ounce…
My wife said her steak was good, except it wasn’t hot (obviously it had been setting on the plate in the kitchen for a short time before it got to our table)….
I realize you may have growing pains, and the CoVid pandemic makes running a business a challenge, but you need to step up your game if you want to be a five star restaurant…
And I still tipped Caleb 20%…

We had made a reservation on Open Table for the bar side, but got there & they couldn’t accommodate it and were very flustered. We stood there for about 5-10 minutes while they scrambled to figure it out & eventually we agreed to sit on the (more expensive) dinning room side because we felt bad about how stressed they seemed. Food was good, but there just wasn’t much of it for $115. We left still kind of hungry & just ate more at the hockey game. I don’t know we’ll be back unless we were sure we could eat on the chop bar side that has a more filling menu for more reasonable prices. Maybe they shouldn’t allow reservations through Open Table if it’s a hassle to abide by what the reservation says? Our serve was really nice though. And the new location was beautiful inside!

Service was good, waiter was sweating the whole time, The Maryland Crab cakes were not the standard you would expect for the price. The fish was over cooked and rubbery. Overall I had an outback steakhouse food for fine dinning prices. Don't think I will be back

Bass Street used to be our go to spot when we visited Moline. The food and drinks were out of this world. This is our second visit since their move and we were kind of disappointed. My husbands burger was as usual delicious. My asparagus was very disappointing, over cooked, too greasy and little flavor. My beef tips were not worth the $30 I paid for them, too much money for too little serving. Is there a new cook or did he just have an off day. We love this place but were disappointed this visit. However, we will be trying it again in hopes that it was just an off day.

Great Ambience and environment. Calamari was excellent!! Salads were average. Steaks lacked any seasoning. Filet and dry aged Delmonico. Unfortunately they needed just salt and pepper. I forgot to get blue cheese butter with mine as that would have saved it. No salt n pepper on the tables either to save it. We also ordered amaretto sours and the forgot the amaretto. They were kind enough to bring a couple ounces to add after requested tho. Server was amazing. Just high end steaks lacked flavor at all.

Plan on waiting forever for your food to arrive. We sat down at 7:00. Ordered drinks and an appetizer. Did not get our dinner served until 9:00. I had to remind the waiter twice that we wanted to order our dinner and he kept running off to either get drinks or help another table. We finally got our order in at 8:00. Took an hour to get 2 prime ribs medium rare and a steak rare. The waiter kept apologizing and checking on our order. Food came out hot but the the price of the food and the hype of a great steakhouse, should not have taken 2 hours from the time I walked in to the time I got served dinner.

Warm reception with Robin and excellent server with Miranda who was great! We thought the beef tips were overcooked and a very small serving but with an excellent sauce. The double boned pork chop was salty and tasted like ham. Desserts were wonderful!

Once again the most fantastic service and food! They accommodated our last minute reservation without problems. We have been coming here for 24 years and every Christmas buy gift certificates for our employees. The best restaurant in the Quad-Cities by far! Even though we turned vegan in February, they continue to be so gracious to us and offer an array of side dishes for our enjoyment. You will never be disappointed here!

Food was low quality for the price, our server was kind but slow - for example we had empty water glasses for 30-40 minutes before they were filled- other guests were getting alcoholic beverages filled while we waited for our water… The plus side was the the view from the patio area was very pretty!

Service was very slow. We were prompt at our reservation time. They were slow to seat us. 20 minutes to get water. 15 minutes to get wine. Slow to take our order. It took an hour and 45 minutes for the meal inspite of us knowing what we wanted to order at first opportunity. The food was hit and miss. Carrot-ginger soup seemed to lack ginger or any discernable spice. Salad and crab-cakes were good. Sea Bass is was fishy. With the highest prices in the region, I expected better. There are restaurants we frequent that have similar atmosphere, consistently good service and consistently good food for less than half the price.
