I don't drink so I can't speak to that but I really like the food here. Farm to table as much as possible, many healthy options if you are into really healthy eating. It is in a fun location, other good restaurants nearby if it's too busy here, a nice little neighborhood to walk around, very comfortable. I love the... More

A few of us ate here while in town for a conference. We'd already tried the much-recommended Marie Catrib's and Electric Cheetah and were eager for a 3rd great meal. We called ahead at 6pm on a Saturday night and were told it would probably be an hour wait for our group of 5. Which turned out to be true.... More

great place for evening out, slightly overrated... nice variety, the not so typical fare. Packed in summer - go early for spot on patio

Stopped in for lunch- waitress was very helpful with menu selection. Had a great bowl of soup and split a Cuban sandwich! Really a good meal.

I love the wait staff, food, and outdoor seating here but when busy indoors it's very loud. Not the spot for a quiet night and maybe not even with friends if you want to catch up with each other. Great drinks though.

Fresh, locally sourced salads make this a place I'll return to. I didn't try the micro-brews, but my lunch companion was a fan. The tomato bisque was quite possibly the best I've had.

The drinks and meals in this place continue to unusual, yet good. It always is busy, with good reason. I recommend eating at the bar, as the bartenders give great service all the while demonstrating great command of their trade.

My husband and I stopped in for dinner the other night and really enjoyed it. We started with the calamari fries which were nice and light, baked instead of fried? Not sure but delicious with the aioli. I had the Korean braised beef noodle bowl and hubs had the seafood boil. Good portions for being off the 'tweener menu. Both... More

Seemed a little over priced for what it is. The food was average at best. Visited during weekend lunch. The vibe was busy and the layout felt cramped and awkward. For $17 a plate and $6 a pint of beer you can find better in Grand Rapids.
