Captain’s Table in Moline under construction

MOLINE, Illinois -The Captain's Table in Moline is about to be rebuilt from the ground up after a fire destroyed the restaurant in 2018.

Construction began Wednesday, August 28 but most of the heavy lifting will begin the next week.

Officials say the goal is to have a structure in place before winter comes so that crews can keep working.

So far the city invested $2 million in the project.

Officials are saying the hope is for the restaurant to be back in business by April.
