Great late night venue with live Entertainment.

We enjoyed a night cap after midnight with local friends. The jazz music was exceptional with two drummers bantering back and forth in a solo of at least 20 minutes. The drinks were cold an well mixed. We were hankering for a snack, but it was 12:20 am and was told the kitchen closed at... read more

Server did not bring fries with one order.waitress did not ever refill our water or soda. Chicken wrap was overwhelmed by too much dill... More

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

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.
