When I am on vacation I don't want a big meal every night, but I do want good food and a pleasant atmosphere. Crane's in the City is a place we go to when we are in Holland, MI. I had the City Christo. My wife had a salad and we shared cherry crip ala mode. Enjoyed an outside table... More

Love the City Cristo sandwich and the chicken noodle soup. Nice quaint place on the main downtown drive of Holland. Good looking pies for later too.

Wonderful food and excellent homemade pies. The inside seating area is very small so finding a place to sit was a problem but worth every calorie.

We stopped in for a late lunch and were very satisfied with the both the food and the service. The salad with dried cherries and grilled chicken was excellent as was the coffee and the apple dumpling. We will certainly return to Crane's when we visit Holland.

As a local, I highly recommend Cranes in the City. The staff is fantastic and the food is great. And let's not forget what Cranes is known for: PIE! Also the cider donuts are excellent. I highly recommend this cute little place.

Crane's is unofficially the official place to go for delicious pies .... Especially the cherry, blueberry and apple. They also have sugar-free pies if you are diabetic. Crane's has several locations and you should also try their country barn location outside if Holland in the way to Sagatauk.

Stopped in here for lunch and the food was great! While standing in line to order, one of the girls working had a friend come in behind us and decided to take her order before ours. Although not a huge deal, it kind of annoyed us. Luckly, the food made up for it. Had the City Cristo and a slice... More

The whole family liked the food, the music, the homey place settings and table. The stuffed pepper soup was good.
