Comfort food. We all have our favorites. When I need my fix I go for a plate of meatloaf and mashed potatoes, turkey and dressing or an open-faced roast beef sandwich with gravy.

If you follow the popular social media page, QC Take out and delivery group that was created in the beginning of the pandemic, you've seen this restaurant mentioned many times for it's famous comfort food.

Stout's Irish Pub and Grill,2352 Valley W Ct, Clinton, is mentioned in the popular QC Take out and deliver social media group so many times, it should win a prize. Known for their giant award winning tenderloins, the restaurant also boasts one of biggest comfort food menus around.

People say it's totally worth the trip to Clinton, but if you're not up to a 20 minute drive outside the Quad Cities, you're in luck. The restaurant is opening a location in Bettendorf on the corner of 53rd Street and Middle Road.
