Wonderful meal and awesome customer service

I went over in my wheelchair to pick up our meal. The owner asked if he could help me take the meal back to our room at the motel next door! When the hill got steep, he handed me the bags of our meal and pushed my chair instead. He saw me to our door and carried the meal in... read more

I think the first impression here is one of "oh wow, the 70's want their stuff back." But don't let that fool you---sit down and enjoy a great meal. From lobster to burgers to the bread....we had a great time and enjoyed the food. We will definitely be going back and when we have friends in town, will be taking... More

Wonderful midwest pork chop at least an inch thick and very tender. My husband had prime rib smothered in grilled onions and mushrooms - yum. The au gratin potatoes were to die for. Light and flaky popover. The house wine was good too. Very friendly and helpful server. Decor is like being in a lodge complete with fireplace.

The Cedars has a very northwoods feel, complete with a roaring fire, which made it perfect for a nice dinner on a cold winter night. The food is traditional supperclub style, including perfectly prepared steaks. Not inexpensive, but a decent value for what you get.

It is a pleasant, rustic dining room. The service was very good and the food was delicious. I will be going back next time I'm in town.

We always know that we will have a great meal when we eat here. 90% of the time I order their prime rib, and I'm never disappointed!

We've been here many times. The menu is typical, and the food is good. Try the clam chowder. It's probably some of the best I've ever had. It's in need some of some sprucing up, but it's still a nice place to eat. The servers are very friendly, and everyone is very friendly. It's a very nice place to go... More

The food is pretty good, selection is okay. Steak and fish is wonderful but everything is a bit spendy, the ambiance is really nice, dark and comfortable. They are a busy place :)

When I was younger, I really looked forward to coming to Grand Rapids and getting to go to the Cedars! Now as an adult it is my go-to-place for celebrating anything. I love the Walleye-a-la-ritz. it is my favorite from anywhere I have had fish and popovers (oh so so yummy popovers) If you have kiddos, I suggest going eat... More
