Order the Dirty South burger with crawfish and aligator if you want to get your Cajun on! This food is better than most and a perfect stop on the ped mall in downtown Kzoo.

The Union is always a fun atmosphere with great food and service. I've been here several times and have always enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended if you're looking for an upscale place to eat in downtown Kalamazoo. Good for date nights or a night out with friends/family.

We visited The Union in downtown Kalamazoo for food and drinks with friends on New Year's Eve. We were there for the 7pm seating which I would highly discourage to anyone in the future. The restaurant simply couldn't handle the onslaught with another seating for dinner planned at 9:30pm. The staff were visibly rushed, the kitchen behind and by the... More

We went on monday night. It was nice because members get 30% off food and half off martinis. Not bad. This menu is varied with a host of options. I did not have an appetite but I ordered the lobster fondue and a purple haze martini and it was delightful. The music could be better, the guy was on the... More

I have eaten here several times and enjoy the staff and atmosphere. The have a variety of live music every night and the service is always great. The manager Adam and the bartender Cortney are spectacular and provide top notch service. They are also right on the mall so it's a short walk from the Radisson or the Kalamazoo House.

Quality food at a good price, decent wine list, good selection of beers. Sat outside in and enjoyed all the foot traffic passing by. Live music inside was very good as well.

Set on the historic Kalamazoo Mall, the Union is a great mix of food, drink, music & fun. With an enticing menu, many craft beers, a solid wine list & creative cocktails, it's a draw for locals & visitors. Through a relationship with WMU, an ever evoling stream of musical talent plays many nights. It makes for a great fill... More

Andrew was our server; he was top notch. The food was good, in particular there was a nice selection of gluten free choices. I got the brisket, buttermilk mash and red beans and rice. Everything tasted good, but we chose to eat outside. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but the temperature dropped, and then the food... More

My husband, daughter, and I had a great time at The Union when visiting Kalamazoo. We went to hear the live entertainment, so took our time drinking and eating. Our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive, drinks were good, food was good, entertainment was awesome! We'd definitely visit again if ever in the area.
