Stopped by for a drink during chili cook off

Had a drink at the bar during the chili cook off. Even thought they were packed with a mostly non-customers, the staff did a great job. I had the bacon Bloody Mary. Great Bloody Mary with a slice of high quality bacon.

We really enjoyed the night. Drinks were reasonably priced. Good service. Loved the Cochon Fries. Amazing! My husband got the sausage plate with greens and whipped sweet potatoes. Yummy too!

As someone who works nearby, we eat here pretty regularly, especially on Tuesday's. Each day of the week has a special promotion, but on Tuesday all burgers on the menu are $6.95 with chips or fries and a pickle. The burgers are HUGE and far better than anything you could get from a burger joint. Of course there are other... More

There's nothing particularly wrong here, but not much to recommend it either. Service has always been spotty. They rely a lot on college students for staff, and the results are often disappointing. They do have music in the evenings.

The food sounds like it is going to taste great! Fried portabello mushrooms, butternut squash soup, etc. But I think it is being cooked by culinary school dropouts. At least half of the food I have ordered there has been inedible. I am not that picky. I mean I like cold cut combos at Subway, I like a nice ribeye... More

Was a little hesitant as they seem to be the perfect place, and advertise too, the college age group. We were quite pleased with our visit. Our server, Megan, was lovely. As a ex-server myself I have pretty high expectations when dining out and she was on top of her game. Never made us feel like it was a chore... More

We went to The Union to take advantage of Kalamazoo Restaurant Week. Well, special didn't start for lunch on Monday, but for dinner that evening and all noon hours Tuesday-Friday. That didn't spoil things at all. We selected an appetizer of rib tips, excellent choice! They were perfectly cooked with just the right amount of char. Six flavorful sauces come... More

great place for a quick lunch. Lots of good beers to chose from and always good service. I really like the burgers too, especially the loaded southern burger. But absolutely order the portabella fries.

This is certainly one of the better Milliennium Restaurants. Interesting and tasty menu. The serive is very nice. Smiles and helpful staff was there on all levels. The grilled apple salad was a hit. Also really liked the blackened chicken pasta. Burgers were also good.
