Great Location - Good Food

Located within walking distance of most downtown attractions. We eat there when attending The Civic Theater. Food and service is consistently good. Parking is available in nearby lots or on street. Open on Sundays with a brunch menu.

The staff was friendly, even on a van Andel concert night, the dinner choices are not too many, but excellent. I had the BBQ prime rib and it was awesome. Great flavor, cooked just perfect, a slight BBQ hint to it, just perfect. Horseradish sauce was great too, I really liked it. The inside is fun and rustic, the door... More

Had a lovely pre-concert dinner with Dan and Lisa. Sat outside, love to see the variety of people in our great town of Grand Rapids. Jeff and I split the walleye - even better than we remembered! Beautifully crusted walleye sitting atop julienne veggies and fingerling taters....yummy! Not only do they cater to the local music scene several nights a... More

Great location, great food, great vibe. We sat outside and it felt almost like a European cafe. Fantastic, personable and quick service.

We knew that this restaurant had mixed reviews, but it is so close to St. Cecelia, where we were heading to a concert. So we ate here anyway. That will be the last time. Our server was pleasant and polite, but she was overworked, as were the chefs. The service took forever. Granted, it was a busy night. We ordered... More

I've walked by this place a thousand times on the way to the Cottage Bar. (Also a great place.) Today we thought we would give it a try. This place was very good. The burger was good, "very good" a direct quote from my lunch companion . I had the Cuban which was also very good. We had an appetizer... More

Historic old building in downtown area, good food, great service though nothing over the moon. Well worth the stop if touring thru Grand Rapids .

I had a gingerbread Martini for a drink and it wasn't that great. The appetizers were okay. Chicken nachos were good. Calamari was okay. We went with another couple and they ordered a martini with out vermouth. The vermouth was added so it had to be remade.
