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

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.

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.

Being a University town, this restaurant is loaded with college youth quite a bit. Live Music is sometimes very "interesting," but, for the most part, enjoyable. Food is average, but the price is acceptable. Because it is quite crowded much of the time, service can be slow. Still, it is worth visiting.

I've only had lunch and chose the pulled pork each time. I liked that they did not put any sauce on it and gave me a choice of six with varying levels of heat. I just found it to be a little expensive; $24 for two sandwiches, a diet pop and a three dollar pint from a local microbrewery which... More

The Union seems very popular and I wish them the best. I'm sure they are worthy of a five-star review. I'm not a hater, but I'm posting because there are people like me everywhere who may want to see live music, but are not into the piano-bar-audience-participation when they're going out. At my visit, there was a guitarist and what... More

New chef, local specialties and upscale college town atmosphere. New cajun influence is great, try the gator mac and cheese.
