Outdoor Dining

Outdoor Kitchen

You don’t have to go far to get that memorable, dining al fresco vacation experience. It’s right here in Bettendorf!

Our ever-changing menu is comprised of items we can cook up quickly so that you can preserve your outdoor seats and continue enjoying music or showings on the big ass TV! For now, we’ve set up a tent to cook you up a handful of delicious menu items. In the very near future, we’ll have a more permanent outdoor kitchen. Both of which are perfect for accessible, grab-and-go food and drinks!

We have plenty of outdoor seating. For anyone enjoying our paved patio area, you can either enjoy food on the grill from our limited outdoor kitchen menu – OR – order from our full menu via our waitstaff. For anyone enjoying time on the lawn, you have full access to our outdoor kitchen menu at your leisure.

Outdoor Bar

The barstools might not say Margaritaville on them but you’ll have your own little slice of paradise in our outdoor bar. Enjoy the Midwest breeze with a cold one on a hot day. Warm up with the heaters and fire pits in the lounge area on a cooler night. When the outdoor bar is open, we’re serving up our full 60+ beers on tap and other libations for your gathering or just a casual stop after work.

Pizza with lots of toppings and thick crust, and a hand pulling a piece out with a serving utensil.

Wood Stone Pizza

If you haven’t tried one of our wood stone pizza pies, you haven’t lived! Whether you choose outdoor patio dining or eating indoors, this is a must-try with that unique smokey flavor only a wood stone oven can create. Choose from two crusts on our indoor menu and one crust if you’re dining outdoors.

Your Destination (Voted #1 Outdoor Dining by Locals Love Us)

We can’t thank you enough for voting us the number one outdoor dining spot in the Quad Cities (via Locals Love Us)! We were in very good company with great local restaurants and even a marina so we are humbled by this honor. When we built this patio oasis dining and drinking destination, we set out to make it something special for you and it’s great to know you’re enjoying it. The next time you want a getaway without the packing, planning and finding accommodations, come spend the day with us at The Tangled Wood!
