We enjoyed their special burger. Try the cherry pie. There is a nice water view. The history of the hotel Butler is interesting.

I went with my husband and had a delicious lunch. I got the pepperoni pizza and my hubby got the portabella sandwich with beer battered onion rings with a bowl of spicy chili. Everything was delicious and perfectly cooked. The waitress was excellent and we had a very enjoyable time.

Girlfriends arrived for a late-night dinner on a Saturday. Waitstaff was friendly (despite our arrival 5 min before kitchen was to close at 10pm) & efficient. Food was prepared very well & priced fairly. Good wine selection. Crabcake appetizer was outstanding.

Stopped here for lunch and were seated immediately. Started off with a couple of draft IPAs for $5 each. Then we had cups of soup (beef/potato and Kalamazoo Chowder) for $3. We ordered the Crispy Chicken Salad ($12.50) and the Taco Salad for $12. The Chicken Salad was good but the Taco Salad was a little dry even with the... More

The food is ok and the service is good. The prices are reasonable. You can sit by the window and look out on the harbor which is pretty. I would go back but it is not my favorite place in town.

We had dinner here for the first time. We have had the wonderful burgers for lunch, but this is the first time we had dinner. My husband had the prime rib and I had the sirloin. Both were very good. The citrus salad dressing was so good I bought some to take home. The view of the bay was outstanding.... More

The food was amazing. Best prime rib I have ever had. Crab stuffed mushrooms the size of golf balls. The service was slow but it was the dinner rush so it should be expected. It is right on the water so you have a nice view while you eat. Check it out.

Wife and I went here on Saturday, September 13 for lunch. We did not have reservations but were seated immediately. Service was good, view of the Lake was great. Food was good as well. Would recommend the place.
