Bill's Beer Garden is a good place to grab some unique beers. They offer a good selection of craft beers and ample seating outside. They didn't have table service when I visited, but the bar tenders were friendly and quick with pouring beers.

The beer garden has some solid beer but by and far the reason it's so cool is it's atmosphere. It is unreal

Great place to meet up with friends and/or co-workers. Nice selection of local beers and very relaxed atmosphere. For food, one can pick up things to eat at Mark's Carts and bring them back to enjoy in the Beer Garden.

They have some good Michigan beers but what is best about this place is that you can drink in an outdoor environment. On rainy days they have these shelters that kind of covers from rain. There are fire pits as well.

For the last few Friday nights, my husband and I have gotten food from Mark's Carts (see separate review) and taken it to Bill's Beer Garden. When the weather is nice, there's no better way to start the weekend. Bill's has 3 long communal tables...More

Great outdoor hang out with a decent amount of beer options... The only thing I didn't like was a few ciders were a little misleading.... One was listed as fruity and sweet but was more bitter and a bit like kombucha.... Wasted $6. All in...More
