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.

Country Vegetable/Island Salad?

Ordered Salad of Baby Kale, Mango, Feta, Sesame Seed, with Citrus Dressing. Arived with no feta at all, about six sesame seeds and spring mixed greens. I though the wrong salad was delivered. It returned with an over kill of feta added. Everything was of good quality and fresh except the mango... read more

My husband and I went here tonight for a much needed date night, we have never been here before but we will for sure be back! My husband ordered a bone-in ribeye price was about 43.00, he loved it, caramelized just right and done to his liking. Probably between 24-28 ounce portion size. He ate it all. I had the... More

Attentive wait staff. Steaks cooked well to our liking. Average size side portions. The plating of the meals looked strange, steak and small side on a GIANT LONG plate all spread out, hum....,.

This place makes you feel like your truly on vacation. We enjoyed eating in the area where the doors opened to the outside view of the Grand River. The staff was friendly and the food a tasty.

This place is DELICIOUS. I got the salmon and my son got a steak. Both meals we have a 10/10. Server was quick and friendly. Little pricey, but well worth it!!

We chose the grill room for our final dinner in Grand Haven. We were also celebrating our daughter's birthday. We were a party of 11, including one child. We ate early and the service was excellent for the first part of our meal. About half way through, it was poor. Dinner plates and food was left on the table when... More

My most recent visit was the fourth or fifth time I have visited them over the last several years. The location is ideal, the decor is modern, and the food is good. The prices on the menu had been raised noticeably this last visit, making me wonder if we will return. Our waitress was very good.

This hot spot is in the middle of all the action downtown Grand Haven. It's one of the only places around that will accept reservations, another nice feature. A la carte menu is great for some but not all. The knowledge from the service staff was quite extensive of both food and drink. We opted for appetizers, entrees and ended... More
