It was reported on the local news that this business is now CLOSED, due to owner retirement. This particular restaurant was located right next to a golf course in the center part of Rock Island, Il. Sorry to hear that the doors are now closed.

I have been here several times and it never disappoints. The food and atmosphere is wonderful. A great place for lunch or dinner or stop by and get something to take with you from the bakery.
