We visited this restaurant for a special occasion. From the start, service was slow. Our waitress would disappear for long stretches. Ordering, drinks, food, everything was slow. She told us two different times our food would be "right out." We finally received the food 20 minutes after the first time and a good 10 minutes after the second time she... More

Travels_Mucho Wow, we really dropped the ball on your special occasion, and we are sorry. I can go through a lot of explanation to say why our usually excellent food was found to be undesirable, or why our exceptionally great service was lacking, but that would not erase your negative experience, and surely not replace the fact that you chose...

Loved the view. We sat right by the big window that overlooked the marina. The food was delicious with interesting options!

Had 5 in our group for the brunch which was a set menu; nice but pricey. Our starting drinks too a while and were messy / spilled on the outside..no apologies or offer to correct.; just an additional cocktail napkin. Food was tasty, the lasagna and egg dishes were ample and good. The lamb was skimpy...; fish was cooked to... More

My wife, daughter, and I use the Piper for all of our special occasions, and we are never disappointed. We had a great table overlooking the icy harbor at sunset on a Saturday night at 7:30. Our waiter, Adam, had an excellent demeanor and was always there at the right moment to respond to our needs (he did forget a... More

Went for dinner with some of my friends to celebrate my birthday. Not the friendliest hostess but was cooperative in adding to the our reservation. The drinks and appetizers were served in a timely manner. Appetizers were good. I ordered the steak for my entre and unfortunately it was over seasoned - way too salty and surprised that it was...

We arrived by boat late in the season, and again, we had a wonderful meal! The lamb lollipops are some of the best we've ever had and the daily specials are wonderful! Now for the but part. We arrived by boat while it was still light out, docked and headed up to the restaurant. After our fabulous meal, we went... More

One of the best views in Holland/Macatawa, Michigan. Indoor seating and in the summer they have deck seating as well. Nice selection on the menu from Pizza to Fillets. Nice selection of wine too. for a special evening or a quick meal the piper has been my go-to spot for years.

Excellent food for very reasonable prices here with a good view! Definitely worth a visit. Unique foods as well. Just an overall good restaurant nestled on the lake.
