We went for dinner. The inside dining area is very small, but it was too hot to eat outside. However, the AC did not appear to be working inside, as it became increasingly more uncomfortable while we were there. The margaritas did a good job cooling us off, though. I thought the price to "upgrade" to a premium brand tequila was too much. The chips are good, and so were the chicken tacos. A bit high priced overall. The restaurant has alot of potential to be better if the AC could be fixed. The building is in a great location with a beautiful river view and the staff are very friendly!

The food at this place was really just average at best. Menu was pretty small, nothing really to complain about but nothing to rave about either. The views of the Mississippi are nice from the back while you eat along with the patio in front. Parking on the street is plentiful, we took a moment to walk down to Antique Archaeology (American Pickers) afterwards. The town is nice and worth a stop if for nothing more than AA but next time if there is one we will most likely try another place to eat.

picked it because of the name. wasn't sure what we would get but it was busy with locals so it must be good! was Mexican food - very good - good spice! very small seating area that was 'sticky' but had outdoor seating in front and in back! our server, Leah, was excellent! she even gave us directions to an ice cream shop not too far away.

Great location in the quaint town of Le Claire. Nice patio but the dining room needs work.
There either was no AC or it wasn't working on a hot summer day making it rather unpleasant.
I don't mind a boisterous crowd but the acoustics of the building made it impossible to hold a conversation. The food was mediocre at best.
This place has real potential but needs to to work on their shortcomings. Overall I am pleased to see what the town of Le Claire has achieved in becoming a destination.

Al fresco dining in the heart of LeClair. I would go here with friends and have drinks and maybe a snack again apposed to going for dinner. The food is decent,but do not expect it to be authentic. The chips with red and green hot sauces were the highlight. We had steak fajitas and chicken tostadas ,both a bit bland so we loaded on the red and green. Beans and rice were a bit generic , guac was good. Nice atmosphere to hang out have a drink or 10 and do some people watching.
