I have eaten at The Union several times since relocating to Kalamazoo in the spring (it's a popular lunch spot with coworkers, particularly on "Burger Tuesday"). They have live music most nights of the week and run daily specials that save a few dollars. The draft list is fine (not exceptional, but then Kzoo is a beer town and expectations... More

We stopped into the Union before heading over to the Kalamazoo Valley Museum. I had the leftovers sandwich which was excellent. My kids had the mac n cheese that disappeared quickly. My wife's wrap was a little dry, but service was friendly and good

The music was good, the atmosphere was good, and the draft list was good too. I ordered the brisket, which was ok. Not very brisket like however. It actually seemed a little more like pot roast. I had collard greens and corn bread and the sides were both great. My gf had Mac n cheese, which was average. The place... More

My girl friend and I tried both kinds of ribs. I liked the Kansas style ribs with the sauces to dip in. The Mac and cheese side was very good.

This visit came as the artists and crafts folks were packing up after our long day of festivities - a doo-day parade, grandson's graduation party and looking at dozens of booths filled with creativity. The Union staff made sure our group of eleven could sit together on their outdoor mall dining space. We shared wonderful appetizers - salads, shrimp, goat... More

The staff was friendly, and the restaurant was clean. The food and drinks were great, but kind of pricey. It cost about $40 for two of us to eat a chicken wrap, hamburger and two drinks.

My wife was in the mood for BBQ so we stopped by Union. She had the ribs and I had the Gumbo and a piece of pie. The food was adequate, and the service was ok. The place is pretty cavernous and it was hard to hear each other. Can't imagine what it would be like if the live entertainment... More

This is one of the best places in Kalamazoo to eat. Since we have kids we do not stay for the live entertainment (it starts after bed time), but this is a nice bonus.

Have not been here in the evenings, so can't judge their dinner menu. It is fairly quiet at lunch time and the selections are good, a bit different, and priced right.
