I loved the Bloody Mary Bar and the Tapas Plate but did not appreciate the staff who seemed to cater to people they knew. The bartender spent much time enjoying the company of the people she was comfortable with - never told us the specials and took a long time cashing us out because she was visiting. If you want...

My husband and I had dinner here on a Wednesday night. Our Innkeeper called in a reservation, butt wasn't necessary as there were plenty of open tables. It was mid-week in December, so understandably so. Since we were celebrating our 40th anniversary, we ordered a bottle of wine which was specially discounted. It was very good. He ordered salmon which... More

We've been going this place for years and learned about it from word-of-mouth. Pleasant atmosphere with unique foods that reminds me of New York. Love the grillled mahi mahi! The best time to go is the evening ... but it is also the busiest. Lunch is OK, but nothing compared to the evening menu.

Matt Balmer and his team offer the best of West Michigan- an impressive wine list to compliment the delicious menu options, plus a friendly well versed staff at the bar and in the restaurant. The tuna is my go-to favorite, however there is nothing on the menu I haven't tried and loved. The s'more is a must for dessert and... More

Went to Everyday People for our fourth or fifth time. Over all they have been good meals but I have never understood the hype or the lines to get in. Something has to be pretty awesome to wait in line. This last meal was one of the worst meals I have ever been served in my life let alone at... More

I am just assuming that the food is very good. They don't take reservations, and if you don't get there before they open and get in line, you could be in for quite a wait. (We arrived at 7PM on a Saturday night at the end of the season, and they told us it would be at least an hour... More

Stopped in for a late Saturday lunch on a beautiful fall day. My husband and I shared a sandwich which was so good. We had a french dip beef sandwich that had a layer of cheese and carmalized onions. It was very, very good and we added a side of excellent french fries.

Cathie and I went to Everyday People Cafe on Oct 20, intending to have a light meal, and we got a whole lot more. We started with some of their "retro specialty drinks". Cathie had a Vespers, a Vodka, Gin, and Lillet martini, while I had the Sidecar, a Brandy, Cointreau, and bar sour concoction. We decided to split three... More
