Like all hospitality services in this COvID-19 world, they suffer from having too much business and not enough staff to handle it. They did a commendable job once we were seated. The waiter was good. The food coming out of the kitchen was a bit slow but on point, except the mac & cheese was cold the first time and barely much warmer the next. We love to people and food. We will come back, just probably not at 7:00 PM on Saturday night.

We were really looking forward to dining at the "new" Bass Street Chop house. We loved the previous venue. The interior remodeling was okay but the exterior looked like it wasn't finished. We were seated next to a large group table of 6 where we were almost touching the other diners. We ordered steaks and sea bass and a side of brussel sprouts. The fish was wonderful but the medium rare steak was cold and, frankly, had little flavor and the Brussels were placed in a soupy broth which seemed odd. Our waiter tried very hard to make things right and was wonderful but he couldn't help the quality of the food. A $150 meal for two people even in high end cities like Chicago should be wonderful but it wasn't. We will not be back. Very disappointing experience.

We have been customers of Bass Street Chop House for years. The experience is always of the highest quality, from the wait staff to the food and to the setting. We have NEVER been disappointed at any of our visits to Bass Street Chop House.

New location for Bass Street. Personally I enjoyed the last location better. The food I got was great. A friend ordered crab legs and they weren’t good. There were six of us and five of us were very pleased with our meals. I would definitely return and recommend Bass Street. Our waitress was great! They make their own ranch dressing. It was really good.

First of all it was like eating in a refrigerator, very cold! The amount that they charge for the quality of the beef is NOT worth it. I had eating at the old restaurant a few times and had always loved the beef. Not sure what has changed? There are far better places in the Quad Cities for steak.

The burgers here were very good and worth waiting for. Unfortunately, as with so many establishments these days, the staff was shorthanded. They did their best and were extremely pleasant...but the ratio of staff to guests was just too low to keep up. It may still be one of the best restaurants in Rock Island as the choices are pretty limited.

We had a wonderful evening dining at the Bass Street Chop House for our daughters birthday. Love the new location and the ambiance of the restaurant. From the moment Robin greeted us at the door to the delightful and attentive server Brittany our night was perfect. Our meals were delicious and the wine selection was top notch. We will definitely return.

For our anniversary, Bass Street Chop House gave us a free glass of champagne, which was very enjoyable. Three different employees wished us a happy anniversary ; nice personal touch. The stuffed mushroom appetizers were very tasty and my wife's pork chop dinner along with my dry-aged steak were outstanding. AAA all the way. It's always been that way at Bass Street Chop House. Keep up the good work Bass Street.

I understand Bass Street Chop House is in a new facility, and they are short-staffed. Aside from a fairly long wait to order and receive the food, my biggest complaint was the "Kobe" charbroiled hamburger. It was supposed to be medium well, and was served medium rare. It was also barely warm. Fries and Plantation salads were great. Coffee was good. Our server did a pretty good job (it was her first day as a server). I'm sure things will only get better as they settle in and hire more help. Guess I would recommend getting reservations at the very beginning of the lunch hour or the very end for all of the above reasons.

Bass Street was our favorite restaurant in the Quad Cities for special occasions like anniversaries and out-of-town visitors. We were delighted to learn that they are now back in a new location, and we finally had a chance to dine in last Saturday evening. We found that everything is still great -- wine list, food, and service!

The garlic butter parm on our steaks had the flavor of panko crumbs rather than buttery parm. Everything else was the same quality we have always enjoyed. It was great to be back after the long shutdown. Service was fantastic!

First time back since the reopening. They did not disappoint in any way. I failed to notice they had reopened in a new location, (the old Friday’s location next to the Mark) but that was on me. The food was top notch and the service was fabulous.

To start with , the remodel was nice. The food was just ok for the price point. Please take note of simple things. The wine list should have better presentation than a typed up list on a worn piece of 8x10 paper. A cocktail list or signature cocktail list separates a mediocre restaurant from a good one. With the mark up on alcohol, they could have sold us more. A bread basket with selection of breads and butter impresses those of us that don’t even eat bread. Although the food was decent, the smaller sister restaurant in East Moline does a better job overall. Lastly, the bill came out as a paper receipt without a book or jacket. Tacky. Sorry this is a negative review but there is work to be done. Take a trip Ruthie’s in Davenport to see how it’s done.

Unfortunately it took over 2 hours for only 4 people in the party. Cost was quite expensive. That would be OK if experience and food was worth it, but in this case we found pricing similar to high-end steakhouses but without either the ambiance or quality to justify the cost.

We were there early in the day, at 11:30, they were out of Diet Coke, they don’t have/give bread or crackers for soup, the steak was overdone and had to be redone, which was better but still overdone. Wait staff barely checked on us, the food was subpar. Seafood is not a choice there other than salmon and fish and chips (and lobster Mac and cheese).
The online menu is also not up to date. We chose that restaurant based on the online menu and was disappointed that many of the items are not offered.
We will not be back
