Great craft brewery in a cool location. Was crowded but still managed to sit at the bar. Bartenders and the locals were real nice and friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

I've been here several times and always had a good experience. Sometimes its drinking a few beers with friends, other times dinner with friends, family, spouse. If you are not aware, it is a Belgian beer bar. which means unique yeasts and flavorful tastes. I'm glad that the menu has expanded over the last few years.

This is only a one night experience, but i will share it with you nonethless. This was a late dinner get together with some friends and the place was busy. I ordered the duck nachos which came highly recommended from some foodies i know. These things were not worth $5 let alone $17. There was hardly any cheese sauce and... More

Soups are made from scratch. Delicious. Unique and varied menu with special menu items featured frequently. Use of fresh local ingredients in food prep. Fine cheeses & organically grown vegetables. Knowledgeable staff. Friendly atmosphere in beautiful old building with original stained glass windows. A divine experience!

This brewery is located in an old church. It is an experience to go here. The food is very French and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is lovely and so different. You must try the ice cream dessert here as it is simply wonderful.

My husband and I were on a spontaneous craft brew weekend and decided to stop in on Saturday night. The place was PACKED. Normally, this would send me right back out the door, but we hung out for the 30 minute wait with the very friendly gals at the hostess stand and are very glad we did. In spite of... More

You'll feel like you stepped back into time inside this gastropub as it's inside a historic funeral home (more like a chapel) in a funky corner of Grand Rapids. The beers are delicious! We love IPA's and found them very drinkable. We both had the clam and chorizo soup, which was spicy and filling. The dense chocolate cake was surprisingly... More
