“40 taps to select from!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

The Clam Lake Beer Company is a warm inviting place to get together with friends, family or business associates! Not only is there a fantastic craft beer selection, the food is also very good and all at reasonable prices. The view of the City park, fountain and Lake Cadillac from the back room is wonderful.

“Great place for dinner and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We stayed in Cadillac 10/10/2013 and after a long drive from SE Michigan were looking for a place to have a cold beer and watch the Tiger game. The woman at the front desk of our hotel recommended Clam Lake Beer Co. and we couldn't have been happier with her recommendation. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly, the pizza was delicious and the beer was cold. We counted over 40 beer taps on the wall!! The interior design of the restaurant was very comfortable and trendy. There were plenty of large flat screen TV's for watching the game. We will definitely be back the next time we pass through Cadillac.

“A Casual Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Attempted a visit on their opening night. We expected it to be busy, which it was. After standing by the "wait to be seated" sign for about 10 minutes I got the attention of a waitress. She informed me that I would have to walk towards the bar to find "the woman in a red shirt" who had a waiting list. Customers should not have to search for a hostess. Irritated by this, we left. We stopped back in the next day before the Craft Beer Festival and was able to get a table. We only ordered beer. The selections of beer were great. The service was good but could have been quicker. I will return at some point to try the food.

“Terrific New Addition!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We're frequent campers in the Cadillac area and were delighted to come upon this new offering on our latest trip. Located right downtown, the parking is easy enough and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Lots of stainless steel made things seem sleek and clean, while the tables/booths/chairs were warm and comfortable. Our sandwiches came with homemade potato chips, which we really enjoyed, and everything was very tasty. Our one disappointment was that they seemed to be out of a number of their draft beers. Since they're a "beer company", that was pretty surprising. Maybe they're having trouble gauging what they need, since they're new, or maybe they're just cutting back because the busy summer season is over. Nonetheless, we were able to find something we liked. The service was friendly, though it could have been quicker. Our server seemed to know some of the locals, so she spent more time visiting than might have been appropriate with other customers waiting at the very next table. We'll certainly be back and will recommend it to friends.
