Armored Gardens – BBQ, Brews, Fun!

Armored Gardens, located at 315 Pershing Ave, opened up in downtown Davenport in late October of 2017. After being open almost a year, it has quickly become a fun hotspot for all types of people, for many reasons.  Armored Gardens features craft brews, with over 100 beers on tap, and BBQ but with a few delicious twists.

Customers order their beers at the bar by number.
