Ate here on the 4th of July with several friends. The food was really good, but the temperature when it was served was barely warm. I wanted to send it back, but didn't. The service was good and the waiter was happy to answer all of our questions. Overall, one of the nicest places to eat in Grand Haven.

Food and service was great. We had a table of 8 and there weren't any issues at all. The ambiance was fun and the place was packed!

Nice place to grab a salad or dinner. I enjoyed the salad with salmon and my friend enjoyed the medallions of beef [although it did not come with any sides choices].

We went out to Grill Room without the kids. The place is nice we felt like we were the only table our server had. He was right there when we wanted him and wasn't around while we were talking. The food was great. We finished with a bananas foster for desert.

This is the second time I visited this restaurant. As soon as I walked in, I tried to remember why I did not like it the previous time. I ordered the Chopped Greek Salad. It was fresh and fabulous. Then, I remembered why I avoided this place for a few years - very poor service. It does not matter how... More

We go to the Grill Room for special occasions. Last was for wife's 60th birthday. Our party included my wife, myself, and son and lady friend. The food was good the service was very good. Prices are a little high but it is the only real steak house in Grand Haven. The Kirby does offer a meal voucher for use... More

This is NOT the night to evaluate a restaurant which is preoccupied with more than one seating and having every meal served and cleared before the clock strikes 12. But it is also perfect test. The Kirby staff did an excellent job of balancing the interests of those who primarily wanted to drink their dinner and those who wanted to... More

We had a nice dinner at the Kirby house. The staff was friendly. The food was good. I expected a little more. All was above average, but not over the top.

Disappointing. Food was good, but overly salted. Service staff was attentive though the atmosphere was spoiled by a group of four men acting like they were at a bonfire... loudly swearing in every sentence and making farting noises while we attempted to enjoy a romantic dinner. It was a VERY expensive dinner to be forced to tolerate inappropriate behavior seated... More
