I am a long time visitor of Steve's Old Time Tap and will continue to be for a long time! The bartenders are great, the drinks are delicious and you'd be surprised how good the food is!

Needs a bit of cleaning and renovation needs to have a fully stocked bar before an event so you do not run out of popular alcohol

Wanted to try some of the other items on the menu and will next time but had to get the burger in this trip. Very nice people working there. Tammy made us feel... More

I had stopped in with my girlfriend to have a drink after visiting the Rock Island District area. Great local bar to have a drink, kick back and have a conversation. Staff was willing to make whatever drinks we wanted (as opposed to simply pouring a beer and moving on) so friendliness is DEFINITELY a positive here. Nice place just... More

Always a great place to go for cheap drinks and cheap food. The food is really good too. This is a great place to go and watch sports. You definitely will not be breaking the bank.

Great little dive bar, with friendly staff & customers. You will see people in suits, just off work, bikers who stopped for a few and someone from the hotel visiting and looking for an inexpensive beer. Food is basic bar food and is good.

Loved it, a little dive bar right across the hotel , you can sit outside and catch some local flavor as you sip your drinks. Did not try food but I"m guessing it would be tasty bar food. Little place, have some games in there, locals and the odd sleeping person outside in the chair LOL. Also have carryout beer... More

It was across the street from our hotel so we asked hotel staff if it was a decent place to get a beer and they said yes. Not familiar with the area I wanted to be sure. It is small and cramped but had multiple TV's with sports running. Staff was nice and pricing reasonable. It's very small though, much... More
