In the Radisson Hotel, this is a busy, typical college town bar. Great Burgers and pick-up spot. Lots of young, loud patrons who are enjoying life to the fullest. A good down town spot!

A great place to wine and dine. A bit pricey. It has been there many years and we have many good memories. A very popular gathering place. The food/desserts are great. Staff very pleasant.

I stayed at the Radisson in Kalamazoo recently and went to this place for dinner one night. The waitress took a very long time even to fill up my water, and the steak I ordered was pretty bland & fatty. Next time I will try Webster's or Zazios in the same building. Probably best to avoid this restaurant, there are... More

Great place for lunch or dinner with friends or family. Excellent menu (especially burgers and sandwiches) and terrific drink menu. Always a pleasant experience. Only downside is it gets a little noisy and hard to have a conversation so not a great business meal option.

My husband and I enjoy eating out. We also admit to watching Restaurant Impossible on Food Network and agree with Robert Irvine that there are specific areas in restaurant management that are priorities...quality service, quality personel, quality food for money spent and cleanliness. Unfortunately, last night our experience at Burdicks was disappointing. It was great that we didn't have to... More

We were among 3 couple traveling together and staying at the Radisson. We lunched at Burdick's after our arrival. All 6 of us enjoyed the various soups, salads, and sandwiches we ordered. I had a wrap that was terrific. Later in the evening we noted that this spot was a popular one for watching the MLB playoff games...plenty of TVs.

Old Burdicks is a real nice option in downtown Kalamazoo if you are looking for a casual place to grab some food, have a few drinks and watch a game or two. The menu contains the standard bar food fare with more than a few surprises and/or twists to traditional favorites. The food was solid but the servings were a... More

Food was wonderful. Only complaint was I got my dinner right after I got my appetizer. Otherwise, I would have given five stars. The staff was helpful and the food was DELICIOUS. I would definitely eat there again

We met here for our reunion because we as lays knew burdicks as accommodating to large parties and decent food. The service was sub par. She had an attitude the whole time like she was ready to leave her shift. She dropped our food and got part of the order wrong. I know accidents happen but it all added up.... More

My friends brought me to Burdicks for my birthday. They had a special menu for college students with discounted prices. I had their Reuben, it was amazing. The corned beef was thick sliced and tender. It came with truffle fries, which were equally as good. Great service, great food.
