Second time visiting this restaurant so it must have been good the first time to go back again. I had the Wet Burrito the first time we visited and then the Tavern Steak the second. Both times the meals were really good. My son had the Maui Chicken sandwich and said it was really good as well. The portions are... More

We went there with a group of friends for a retirement dinner. Food was good, portions good. The server, Alex, was excellent. He was efficient and funny. Made the whole evening enjoyable.

I had the steak; I had better at Texas Roadhouse. The portions are small. The food isn't bad, it's just what you'd expect from just another average steakhouse.

Since were not in town because of WMU, we felt lucky to have stumbled across this place while exploring Kalamazoo. The smoked chicken pasta dish was great! Clearly fresh ingredients, just the right amount of bacon and alfredo sauce - not too rich and "spot on"! Fun decor. Excellent, super-fast service. If we were in town longer we would have... More

At a recent business meeting a group of 18-20 of was handled by one waitress. We had one tab for meals but alcoholic beverages needed to be on individual tabs. The waitress took all the orders including dessert orders while we conducted a business meeting. She was quick, pleasant, and handled everything calmly which made the food and the meeting... More

Always make a stop for Perch when in Kalamazoo, never disappointed in the meal. They have a wide variety of meals to choose from. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

I had a business meeting at the University Roadhouse. The food is very good. Service was very good. It is recently remodeled. There is outdoor seating. This is a deservedly popular restaurant. Limited choice of vegetarian options. I did not like the music which was playing, both the volume (too loud) and the choice of music (too recent?).

University Roadhouse is a local favorite dinner place. Located on Western Michigan University's campus, you can enjoy daily drink specials, appetizers and entrees!

This restaurant is located close to the campus of Western Michigan University and indeed to a certain extent, caters to the students. None the less, it is an excellent place to eat. We were a group of 10 people. I asked all members of the group about the meals they had. Each said their choice was very good to excellent.... More
