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.

The atmosphere at the Grill Room is superb. The staff is attentive and friendly, and we were quickly shown to our booth. There was ample time for good conversation, as the dining experience was not rushed. My lamb shank was good, but not great. My wife's filet mignon was grilled perfectly. Tasty accompaniments were artfully adorning the plates. Our guests... More

Took forever to get our food and when we did, 2 out of 4 meals were wrong. This used to be a go to place, not so much anymore.

My husband always enjoys their tender prime rib on his birthday and paired it with crunchy brussel sprouts and bacon. I started with a sweet Thai Chicken soup that I loved so much, I'm... More

We ordered a couple of pizzas upstairs at K-2. The vegetarian pizza was a joke. There wasn't enough chicken on the BBQ chicken pizza and the crusts have way too much black cornmeal on them. Stay home and start the oven, or get a pizza from Porto...much better pizza there for the price!!

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.
