“Fly the Sky”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We stopped here, as we waited for a return flight.
It does need updating, but our choices were quite good.
I had a sandwich, my friend had the steak.
We found the wait staff friendly. We will be back.
To their credit they also allow folks to stay in their parking lot to await a flight to avoid QCAirport parking lots charges.

“Good food”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I did not give this restaurant an excellent rating because the place does need updating, but our food was very good. It was a bit chilly in the restaurant and it took quite a while to get our food.

“Best Prime Rib around”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

By the airport in Moline Illinois,, Bud's Skyline Inn offers great prime rib and steaks among their other fine entrees. They have a generous salad bar and a nicely equipped bar. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is very comfortable.

“My new Quad Cities favorite”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

In the Quads Cities for several days, and running out of good eating options, we found Bud's. A real down-home kind of place with character, a strong salad bar, and great food. I tried the grouper, and the portion was off the plate in size. My brother had the blackened salmon, and it was huge. The flavor of both was wonderful. The potatoes are real with lots of good variations, and there is a nice and reasonably priced wine list. Everything was so good, we went back a second night and had the ribs. Again, the half-rack was more than enough, with some to take away. I just wished I lived close enough to dine here on a regular basis.

“better but not great”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Lunch is very good, quick, and good taste. Dinner the crowd gets a little older, Catfish is good. But it feel like your eating at a old folks home, Friday night. Crowded but wait was not long
