One of the many things that make our community so great is the abundance of locally owned restaurants. Over the last year BTS managed construction on some of the hottest new establishments: Bass Street Chop House, Tribute Bar and Tangled Wood. If the pandemic taught us anything it’s the importance of supporting our community, especially local business. Read on to learn more and be sure to plan a trip to try them out for yourself soon.

Combine: A Bass Street Restaurant located in Moline, IL came back to life after a sad closing in April 2019. Since reopening they have added carry out and delivery options and adjusted indoor dining for a safe experience. You can’t go wrong with this menu whether you are ordering a salad and flatbread or celebrating with their Ribeye and expanded drink menu.

Tangled Wood in Bettendorf has something for everyone. Try the Goomballs to start and finish with their Cast Iron Milk & Cookie. Come for a classic dining experience or sip one of their classic draft beers their firepit or for on the go options try one of their Take and Bake meals to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. At Tangled Wood there is literally something for everyone.

Tribute Bar is located in Coralville’s Iowa River Landing. Their name and menu reflect classic esthetics and tribute to the local community. Good Food for Good Company is their motto and it lives up to the hype. Classic sandwiches with a twist and specialty menu items like the Smoked Gouda Mushroom Mac & Cheese are sure to please. Be sure to pair either with one of their signature cocktails. We asked Dan Blum, owner, for his experience working with BTS and he shared “Working with BTS quickly turned into a partnership. What we found particularly valuable was the consistent communication along the way. Corey went out of his way to act like a partner in the business and helped us evaluate opportunities and costs savings.”

It was our privilege to work with these local owners. Stay tuned for more updates on our current projects with other Eastern Iowa restaurants and don’t forget to call BTS for all your construction management needs.
