"Good Food Along With A Warm & Interesting Ambiance"

This was the third time I had eaten at Mama Compton's and I am finding it to be consistently good. I'll admit once I find a restaurant that serves a great grilled cheese sandwich, which Mama Compton's does, I'll go back there. The sandwiches are served with homemade chips, which are excellent... read more

The service was fast and the staff was extremely friendly. The restaurant itself has interesting decor - definitely a cool place. My fiance and I shared the adult grilled cheese and egg salad sandwich. Everything was delicious and fresh. The grilled cheese came with a lot of cheese (it was too much for my stomach) but well worth having one... More

I would not recommend this place! We have been there several times now and have never been impressed! There are much better places to eat at in downtown Rock Island! Don't waste your money here….

Don't waste your time with this place. I went there for a lunch with my coworkers and was sorely disappointed. The food was acceptable, but pricey for what it was. What was intolerable was the wait. We had phoned ahead to let them know that we were coming. We told them that we were a largish party of about twenty.... More

Was excited to try this place as it sounded interesting with the decor and menu. Didn't care for juggling around the large garbage bins on the exterior after we parked. Maybe we didn't find the front entrance? Decor was eclectic and different. We stopped for lunch around 12:30 on a Saturday because we were headed to a home show. We... More

A trip to Mama Compton's is a must do if you're in the area. It's a family owned and operated establishment with an interesting decor and wonderful staff. Psyndi is great and the food is prepared for you as if you were a member of her family. The burgers on the menu are the best and will not disappoint.

A very good restaurant. Looks small on the outside, but quite large on the inside. If you want to get the warm home feel and get a meal "home cooked" and "just like sitting at the dinner table at home", this is it. Nothing extravagant, nothing amazing, just hearty,tasty, and good food. I went on a Monday and had the... More

This is a cute restaurant with very good wraps, soups and salads, and great desserts. There are often community events, such as Gallery Hop artists, and massages.

A nice atmosphere and a friendly welcome. Our table top had been wiped, but not dried. This was addressed quickly. Mama's offers a nice menu of standards and novelty sandwiches, plus soups both hot or cold. My rueben was super, even if my request to put the mustard on the side was ignored by the kitchen. It was meaty and... More

Great little find for breakfast. Large window overlooking the river, very friendly service and great prices. Will be back next time we are in the area.
