Doesn't get any better than this place! Oldest brew pub in the state of Iowa, and one of the earliest craft breweries in the country! Good food, great beers and excellent service! Will definitely be back again and again and again...

Charming atmosphere at the riverfront in an old building. We were immediately offered a drink menu and told the specials. The waitress was knowledgeable about the food and the beer . Cheddar ale soup was superb.we had to fish and chips which was really fresh delicious fish and the pork chipotle chili. Would do this anytime I'm in Devonport.

We ordered the pretzel and artichoke dip appetizers and both were very good. Loved how many dips came with the pretzel!

Son checked out menus and breweries in Davenport and suggested this would be a good place to go. Fortunately my wife made reservations so our table was waiting for us when we arrived. We all ordered something different and everyone was pleased with their order. We also sampled the 8 brews and then ordered beers that we especially liked. There... More

After a college visit to SAU we stopped at Front Street for lunch. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I was expecting your standard pub fare, which it had, but also had many menu items not found at your typical pub. We had the poutine, bahn mi, duck confit tacos and a steak sandwich. The only...

I was driving from Chicago to Iowa for an upcoming football game. Being a big fan of craft beer, I was hitting breweries along the way. At some point I knew I had to eat some food. I sat at the bar and had Lewis as my server. They had a pulled pork sandwich for nine dollars which I thought... More

We stopped for a Friday night dinner with friends while staying at the Isle Casino. We all chose different beers and all were very pleased with them. Three of us had the cod fish fry and one of us had the whiskey chicken. All three with the fish thought it was average. The breading was soggy. The tartar sauce (they... More

I stopped at Front Street Brewing to get something to eat and received a very very good cheeseburger. It was cooked exactly as I ordered the burger, medium rare. Hey know how to cook a burger there. PS. The beer is as good as well.

My wife and I ate dinner on a Saturday night here. We arrived with no reservations but had a seat within 25 minutes. We shared a flight of all 8 beers on tap. The beers were all very good. The Cherry beer was my favorite, great cherry taste but not overly sweet. We started out with the beer mussels that... More
