Bob's review

Have not been disappointed with any meal, until I had the scallops. Service staff is good and 4 other dinners were very good.

In town visiting friends. First visit for us, but not friends. Made a reservation for dinner. Great location. Too cool for outside seating but had a window seat. The young man that waited on us was excellent. When we were waiting to be seated heard people talking about happy hour. When we were seated and asked if we wanted drinks... More

Currently living on a similar latitude line to Sioux City, I've resignedly come to no longer expect fresh food, even when dining up "upscale" places this far north. Bev's however, didn't disappoint in the least - I think I dreamed about my meal it was so good! The wine list is decent, the martinis well made and the atmosphere on... More

Dinner was expensive for the quality. My wife had a great duck entree. My Hawaiian fish, flown in fresh, was a bit off. My daughter had the ribeye . Ordered medium rare came almost well done and tasteless. Our appetizer, the seared ahi, was the best of the meal. Service was excellent for the young staff they have. Cudos to... More

Great looking place in a tremendous location. Pricey, as you might expect from the setting and the atmosphere. The service was excellent - but the food was only so-so. I had ordered a steak and found it to be ... chewy. Might just have been an off-night for the chef, but I would caution you to keep your expectations reasonable... More

We've eaten at Bev's several times, usually for the Sunday brunch. They have a nice selection of foods, with smoked salmon, shrimp cocktail, and the usual brunch choices. We did have one bad experience with slimy oysters or mussels and have had a hard time going back. But, we'll give it some time and I'm sure we'll be back again.... More

Food was okay, pricey. If the weather is nice and you can sit outside it is a definite plus. Light up menus are new and helpful since the lights are turned low during evening hours

This is a restaurant for large groups. It has a nice setting but is looking a bit tired. Service was good and food tasted as though nothing was actually prepared in the kitchen but all comes from pre-packaged pre-prepared food.

We would have loved to have been able to spend Valentine's evening at Bev's but were late to request reservations. Always a romantic evening at Bev's.

Great atmosphere, you will love the great views of the river and outdoor seating. The food is mediocre at best. Service is inconsistent. Hope you get there on a good day.
