Have visited Acorn Grille numerous times in the past and have always been satisfied. On this visit we enjoyed friendly, efficient and knowledgable service from John, tasty dishes (steaks were cooked perfectly) as well as the Fall colors from our windowside table. One disappointment- the bar had just traded out a Seasonal (Pumpkin) Brew for Bud Light!?

Nice place to eat, summer or winter. There is a nice deck with music where you can sit in the summer, overlooking the golf course. Inside during the winter, there is a nice, cozy fireplace. Regardless of the season, the food is always good.

We were looking for a half way point to meet family who live in Kalamazoo and we live in Lansing. After reviewing a variety of options the Acorn Grill at Thousand Oaks Golf had the best price for a brunch in the area plus the ratings of the grill were high. We decide to give it a try. We were...

A small group of us tried AG because of their "$5 Burger/Beer Monday night special. Positives: Nice atmosphere, friendly staff & $5 special. Negatives: Extremely slow service, beer was too cold and burger was decent but tasted you made it your self on your grill without any seasoning. No need to return.

This restaurant is within walking distant to our home. It is our go-to location for great food, at reasonable prices. Service can sometimes be a bit slow depending on how busy they are. The food is always well prepared and tasty. We especially like their salads and often have that for a dinner entree. They have a good wine by... More

My wife and I dined at the Acorn Grille in late December. Previously, I have enjoyed my dining experiences here. Unfortunately, not this time. I will begin with the positives: My wife and I thought that the decor was very nice and appealing. In addition, my wife's broiled walleye with crab was well prepared and very delicious. Also, the homemade... More

Had the Tuna for dinner and my wife had the scallops. Both meals were good and the service was also. We were there on a Tuesday and they were busier than I would have expected. We had a nice seat by the fireplace. The service was good and overall an enjoyable meal.

Acorn Grille is an outstanding eatery. The food if plentiful and superbly prepared, and the service is first rate. Whether it is for a birthday or anniversary or just a dinner out, the staff at Acorn Grille will make it worth your while. The steak tortellini is fantastic. The complete menu has something for everyone.
