Description: Our menu reflects classic English dishes that have been influenced by the days of the British colonies in India; where colonists learned to appreciate the many spices and curries that soon worked their way back to England and onto the supper tables. So sit back, relax, have a pint and prepare to experience a menu for which the Brits would gladly cross the Atlantic!We have a main floor with a bar that is first come first serve seating and we also have an upstairs dining room that takes reservations Wednesdays through Saturdays. We have a large outdoor deck on the ground floor and a small balcony deck on the upper floor that each offer seating for dining.Saturday and Sunday we open at 10am for Brunch which is served until 3pm.Every month we have a new monthly menu on top of our everyday core menu. We also offer Daily Soups, Daily Chef Specials and a Dessert!Every month we host a beer and food pairing dinner; 39 seats available for $35/person, 5 courses all focused on one brewery!!!!

Go for a pint and stay for dinner. Both lunch and dinner selections are London fare - and all pretty good!

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The menu looks great, but the food was terrible. It's now 5 hours after I ate there and my stomach is still upset. Ruined my entire day and now probably my night too.

“Support Local, Eat Fresh and Delicious, Drink Heartily”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

So tonight I had my 3rd meal at Graydon's Crossing. We have been there for dinner and brunch, but this was special. It was part of a cooking class by GR Cooking and it featured the Chef Mike who showed us how to butcher a pig, make bacon, told stories, but also made an amazing meal. His philosophy at the restaurant is British Indian Fusion Pub Fare. He strives to buy ingredients local and fresh and organic as possible. Even though he loves to cook BACON, that's what a pig is, he also caters to vegan appetites as well. Tonight's dinner started out with a salad made with spicy greens, fresh cherry and pear tomatoes, crispy croutons from the Schnitz bakery, a beer and mustard vinagrette and pork belly. It was delicious. The second course was a filet of pork loin that had been lightly breaded with a cornbread coating seasoned with a bit of meyer lemon on some chunky applesauce. The main course featured pork loin wrapped with pork belly garnished with chocolate mole bacon bits on a bed of fresh MI potatoes mixed with chard greens, also with some baby carrots. For dessert we were treated to a huge bread pudding that incorporated several types of beer for the sauce including a porter and it was delicious. It was tremendous, and the highlight was learning about Mike's passion for quality local raised ingredients and totally preparing the meals on site. The pig was local Creswick Farms grass raised free range pig. On top of it the wine and beer list is HUGE and high quality. As for atmosphere, when you walk in it's like being in England. Great wait staff and great ambience add up to a very fun place to get a great meal in Grand Rapids.

“You have to go here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

This place took me by suprise. I was a little iffy about the Indian-Colonial theme, but everything I've had there has blown been fantastically prepared and beautifully presented. They're very accommodating to your needs and have a huge beer selection for those of you who enjoy a good brew. I'd suggest saving room for their Dragon's Milk bread pudding.
