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

Gumbo gets a C+. Couldnt find the jumbo prawns in it. Caesar salad a B. Scallops and tuna were very small and not worth the price. See my picture. Tuna was raw. I had to send back. The waitress said they serve it rare to medium rare. There is difference between medium rare and raw. Upon being seated i asked... More

Weather was nice enough to sit outside and watch the sailboats head out to Lake Michigan. Special was a sockeye salmon that was very good, but we went there for desert! I had the Sticky Toffee and T had the Campfire Cheesecake. Both worth the trip!!

The panoramic sunset view at the Piper Restaurant is worth the 15 minute drive from downtown Holland. The food was pretty decent, but not nearly as upscale and fancy as the prices would suggest. It was seasoned well and the portions were large but I was expecting more. We were here on a Monday night and the service was painfully... More

Service was great. Went there with three colleagues and sat outside. I had the Ginger Prawns and it was very tasty although the portion could have been a little larger. The view looks over many docked boats and the sunset is nice.

I am very picky about restaurant and do not give 5 stars out easily, but Pipers was a very solid 4+stars. Both my friend and I had delicious entrees (duck and tuna/scallops) as we enjoyed the waterfront view.

While staying in Holland, we were introduced to this wonderful spot just outside of the city. Top drawer service, an excellent meal ( I had their newest menu addition the duck breast, delicious) and a surprise sunset over the harbor. It was a recommendation that surpassed our expectations. We have put it on OUR favorites page. A reservation is a... More

Heard so much, and read the reviews, on how great this place is. Maybe another time but certainly not with our party. We took our Mother, who is 92, there for a family dinner for Mother's Day.We arrived early so we knew we would wait but never expected to have to stand up and wait. We were offered stools at... More
