If you are visiting Holland, you have to eat here once.

My wife and I were in Holland to get away. The hostess at the bed and breakfast suggested we try Piper and gave us a coupon for a free dessert. We did not have to wait long for a table. We did not know about the option of sitting outside and took an inside table. The view as incredible. We... read more

We have dined here when in Holland before, and always had a good experience. We were meeting friends and arrived just before 5:00, when the restaurant opened. We wanted to eat on the outside deck, which has limited seating so we were the first ones to arrive so we could be seated outside. The hostess proceeded to tell us that... More

Great recommendation by our bed and breakfast hosts to celebrate our anniversary at Piper Restaurant. Without advertising our special day, our waitress was more than accomodating by placing us at a table right at the windows overlooking the marina. My wife ordered the filet and I had the Walleye. Both prepared properly and delivered steaming hot. Piper also offers and... More

Their basil pesto pizza was fantastic& we loved the Caesar salad. A little pricey, but delicious, & we are on the deck outside where there were heaters, which helped since temps had dipped down.

This used to be our go-to place, as my review from a few years back attests. However, as others have correctly noted, Piper is on a slow-but-sure downhill slide. After dropping close to 60 bucks for two dinner "specials", we came away less than impressed (food was lukewarm and fairly blah) and less than full (why do we still have... More

It had been several years since we were up in the Holland area for leisure so we decided to have dinner by the lake. We requested a table by the water and the restaurant accomidated, which was a good view of the pier. I had the crushed almond crusted walleye and my husband had the steak hash. Both were perfectly...

The restaurant sits on the shore of Lake Macatawa in Holland MI, and overlooks the harbor that leads into Lake Michigan. We ate here several years ago when it was called "The Sand Piper". As I remember, the food was quite good during that visit. I called to make reservations, and was told without hesitation, that there was seating available... More

The Piper has a great atmosphere... Especially the outdoor seating. Staff is nice... Service is pretty good. Food is Ok and a little expensive but the views and sunsets are very nice. Happy hour is nice... A drink gets you a piece of pizza... Nice.

We attended a wedding at the Piper and the setting was great for a small but well attended service. After the service we all went into the reception and were guided to our seats and promptly told that dinner wouldn't be for another hour and 45 minutes. HUH...??? When the wedding party and guests were eventually served (1 hour and... More

Even though the Piper staff worked many hours to please the Bride and Groom, we certainly fell short of your expectations.This wedding required more staff hours than any other event this summer. Staff was on call from 8 am. to accommodate the various activities. Becky, the event manager, worked with the bridal couple on all details including the dinner service... More

We sat outside on the balcony that overlooks the harbor. The food was wonderful, but the service and the views really made our visit excellent!
