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

My wife, daughter, and I have been using Piper for our anniversary dinner for the past nine years, and we are never disappointed. (We also frequently take advantage of their takeout pizza.) We started with the blackened scallops, which seemed a bit on the rare side but still tasty. I had the combo with a frisée salad and the sockeye... More

Each year we visit the piper, it's a nice restaurant with a stunning view of lake Macatawa. This year the food was much less thrilling than in years past. It was just okay - it's about $30-40 a person with a full meal and drinks so just okay is a disappointment. The best thing was an appetizer with chèvre cheese... More

The dinner was outstanding and the atmosphere was refreashing. Service was great and the waitress was full of local information.

Not what I expect for the type of price point attached. I visited the Piper on a Tuesday. As a table of 3 we did not have a reservation but the restaurant was able to accommodate us after a short wait. That was my fault but the restaurant not being on OpenTable did not help as I would have used... More
