Moline, IL 61265

Exotic Thai is on of our favorite local hot spots! They “arrived in Davenport in 2002, and the Quad Cities were ready for ET’s mind-blowing flavors and lovely atmosphere. That restaurant immediately became a popular dining spot. So popular, in fact, that a Moline location soon followed.

More than 10 years later, Exotic Thai’s consistently excellent level of quality food, service, and dedication to authentic Thai cuisine has made it a much loved Quad Cities favorite.

An extensive and varied menu ensures that every guest can find something to fall in love with. Creative new specialty dishes are regularly updated for those who want to try something new.”

Bettendorf, Iowa 52722

5ive Cities Brewing is another local gem that we absolutely love! They even helped raise funds for flood relief during their QC Tap Takeover where they had beer on tap from a VERY long list of local Quad City breweries.
“Opened in early 2018, we specialize in meticulously crafted aromatic beer for the adventurous spirit. Located in northwest Bettendorf, Iowa, our array of high-end liquor and wine is sure to suit even the non-beer lovers.

Enjoy bites from neighboring local favorites Crust Pizzeria and Central Standard between rounds of shuffleboard, foosball, and darts.”
