OpenTable Diner (Des Moines)

My wife and I were visiting Bettendorf and were looking for a unique and healthy restaurant. We found Barley and Rye on the kiosk of our hotel and were glad to be able to visit a farm to table restaurant. We made a reservation through open table and were seated immediately in the outside patio (our request). They have a nice open space inside as well. I ordered the bison burger and turkey burger and my wife ordered the chicken burger. Everything was perfect and extremely tasty! Our service was excellent and the food wasn't expensive considering that it was farm to table! We definitely recommend this for anyone and we will definitely repeat when in the area! Thank you to the Barley and Rye staff and owners for offering a healthy option for dining!

The food was delicious, the service pleasant and attentive. I need to go back to sample the extensive whiskey, bourbon and rye collection. I'll be back. Only thing missing was vegetarian option (not for me).

Best restaurant in the QC. It's the only place that reminds me of the great quality and unique restaurants in Minneapolis

We were disappointed from the start as we sat at our table for 15 minutes before we had to wave down any server to assist us. Even when we found one, he appeared confused about how to serve a table. We asked him to explain the menu and he responded by asking what we wanted to know. The actual server then lurked around the table perturbed that another server was assisting us. It was odd because he had clearly been assisting other tables who arrived after us.

When we asked the new server about specific items on the menu, he appeared uninformed. We asked about the buttermilk fried chicken. He told us it was a breast and wing dipped in buttermilk....obviously....

Food was good, but the service left us with a disappointing experience that makes us question whether to return.

Parking is also atrocious. If you get within a block, you'll be lucky.

Group of 4 all with different entrees. 3 apps. Menu is very creative but it is hit or miss. Apps were all very good ample in size. Stay away from chicken. Steaks were 50% successful at table. If you like bourbon go in, have a few drinks (300 kinds available) and order some apps to play it safe

On this night, you could tell that all restaurants in Downtown Moline would be crowded due to an event at the IWireless Center. We arrived to dinner 2 hours before the event started, giving us plenty of time to enjoy ourselves and to understand that it might be slower than normal due to volume of people. We were seated for 15 minutes before our waitress made her way to our table for a drink order. It took another 15 minutes before those drinks arrived at our table. Tables around us that were seated after us, had already recieved their drinks at this point. We were all very excited about the dinner options and were having a difficult time deciding. Due to the delays in our drinks, we all ordered something as easy and basic to prepare, out of fear that anything else would take too long. We ordered 2 salads and a burger. Normally, we would've had appetizers, steaks and multiple drinks. We were at the restaurant for over and hour and a half even with basic meals such as these. We were hoping for a much better experience than we had. More servers, or better servers could've helped everything.

Dined here on a Saturday night. Had reservations for 5:00 pm. I had the Philly Sandwich. Description said that is was served with caramelized mushrooms and onions and a cheese sauce. It had a smattering of onions, no mushrooms and no cheese whatsoever. The beef itself was very tough. Definitely not worth the $15.00 price tag. The other 3 people in my party had fish stew, a cuban, and a burger. They said their meals were OK, but nothing special. It took over an hour to get our food, and then we tempted fate by ordering dessert. It was supposed to be a chocolate cake with chocolate ganache, strawberries and whipped cream. No strawberries and you guessed it no whipped cream. The waiter said he would bring it out in a bit because she was just making it. We were done with the cake before it came out and just had a bowl of whipped cream sitting on the table. Waited 15 minutes for the check and then discovered the waiter had mixed up the orders and put them on the wrong bills, which given the time, we just went with it. Overall we were there for 2 hours. This was the first and the last time I will be dining at Barley and Rye.
