I was visiting Holland Michigan for a weekend training seminar and the class took the Saturday evening meal at Piper (about 10 of us overall). We tried scallop appetizers as well as goat cheese toast, and then a mix of seafood linguine, walleye, and steaks, and really, all the plates were polished clean at the end. Very tasty, nicely proportioned... More

This resturant is off the main street. It was very loud and made it hard to talk or hear the people you were with. The food was good, but I expected more flavor. What I choose - the beef enchilada's were bland. The guac was made table side and was good. The staff was very friendly! Large portions of food... More

We were celebrating my wife's birthday, and had a very nice time. I love the view, and the quiet relaxed atmosphere here. The food and service are never terrible, but never excellent. My wife loved her shrimp linguine and would order it again. I tried to order the Cajun pork chop, but I wanted to vary the side, and the... More

One of my favorite restaurants in the world - truly! I am amazed at the wonderful creations of this Chef. I order the special combination of the evening - 25 times in a row - and have always been pleased. Also, excellent wine selection. And, of course, there is the view - overlooking the marina and channel with sunsets over... More

Wonderful location for a dinner but I would suggest making a reservation. The fish and duck dinners were superb.

My wife and I and another couple have vacationed in Holland each of the past five years. Each year we eat at Piper and it consistently proves to be the best meal of the week. This past weekend was no exception. We started with the butternut squash soup which was just fantastic. The almond-fried walleye was one of the best... More

My wife and I try to get to this restaurant once a year; twice if we're lucky. It's best in summer and even better when we go there in our boat. The food is outstanding and so are the servers and the view and the atmosphere. The owner should be very proud of such an accomplishment.

We went to Holland to bike around for awhile, and then looked for a nice place to relax and eat. Someone told us about the Piper, so we went there and checked it out. Very friendly staff. It was a nice day, so we went out on the upper deck that overlooks the marina on Macatawa Lake. It was a... More

Located by a marina on Lake Macatawa and within walking distance to the Holland Lighthouse. Outdoor seating. Good food and drinks. Service was friendly and attentive.

My husband and I have enjoyed cocktails and dinner at The Piper for many years, starting back in the early 90's when the restaurant was called The Sandpiper. The location at Eldean's Boat Yard, overlooking Lake Macatawa is beautiful. The food and service, however, are mediocre at best. This is a good spot to stop for a drink and a... More
