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.

Grand Haven and it's many great shops and restaurants are quickly becoming our favorite end of summer getaway before the lady goes back to school. This year we dropped in at the Kirby house for a quick dinner. Waitstaff was great, food was good and prices were reasonable.

We had a good meal, a bit overcooked with the vegetables. The atmosphere was nice, and the wine list OK.

Definitely go and sit outside if the weather is nice. The food was wonderful. We just got hamburgers with fries. They were cooked just right. Our appetizer was wonderful too. Maybe it was weather and family that made this so great. Who knows but I will visit again when I'm in the area.

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, which was canned and cubed into nibblet sizes... More

We are sorry to hear that your salad did not meet expectations, and that there were inconsistencies with both the salad and chicken. We are sorry if the manager made you feel like he dismissed your input. If there is anything more you would like us to know or we can do, please contact our general manager, Tim, at triley@gilmorec.com.... More
