The Kirby House is the place to meet and eat in Grand Haven. A community favorite for excellent food, live entertainment, and simple relaxation with friends and family. Formerly a historic hotel of note, The Kirby House retains its old world charm, while providing all the pleasantries of new world fare and hospitality. Within walking distance of the shores of Lake Michigan, The Kirby House transcends the level of simple restaurant, and is the destination in Grand Haven for all things fun. The primarily American influenced menu is incredibly diverse and is exemplary in its attention to culinary detail and passion. Good times and laughter are located within.

Chicago style steakhouse

Ambiance is wonderful. Great menu and fun bar area. Whether in a booth or seated at high tops it is casual elegant. Family, couples, business all are suitable.

The band was great, lovely mix of customers, everyone seemed to be in a fabulous mood, bartenders were friendly, close to everything downtown, drink prices were a bit on the higher side

My wife & I ate at the "Kirby Grill Room" on Dec. 8, 2014. Understand that the Kirby Grill Room is in a separate room in the Kirby Grill. Much more upscale than the Kirby Grill area. We had the lamb shank and a manhattan steak. Both were great, cooked to perfection. The waiter service was also the best. A... More

The Grill Room is a high end dining experience compared to Kirby House. If you are looking for something nicer and good chops this is where to go in Grand Haven. The food is prepared well and the service is excellent. I have been here several times and it never disappoints.

The specials are generally the best value, so each of us had one. My wife's risotto was average: not hot enough, and a bit bland. My fish was excellent, light and flaky with a nice tropical salsa. The server was good, and very polite. He was a little too busy, though, and spent more time on his large tables, making... More

We had a wonderful dining experience at the Kirby this past weekend. We sat out on the back porch and watched the traffic and people go passed as we ate.

Really enjoyed the food. Liked sitting in the back area where sides are opened and exposed and you can feel the breeze from being outside without the worry of the sun beating down on you or getting wet if it rains. Great sangrias!

Dinner for 4 adults in very cramped booth. Other party member's food was mediocre. Mine was awful. Steak was over cooked to shoe leather.

We are sorry to hear about your poor dining experience with us. We work hard to prepare food how are guests ask. Sorry to hear that we didn't do that with your steak. We would also never want someone to feel rushed. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. More

We had dinner here last night. Lovely restaurant, fine dining. Even though it was a Monday evening, not usually a busy night, the restaurant was full. Great buzzy atmosphere. Good place for family, couples, and groups. Lovely food- a more European menu than many American restaurants- a nice change. Very good service too. Highly recommended.

Avoid this restaurant. The bouncers are not trained. A bouncer dragged a woman up two flights of stairs who was carrying a glass of water coming out of a bathroom on August 1. The police were called and the woman suffered multiple bruises. The bar is too crowded and the staff is not trained to manage guests nor knows how... More
