Had dinner here with friends, and it was a really great place. Whether indoors or out, it's a nice bar in a great location. The staff was exceptional. Great menu items, huge selection of beer. It was nice dining on patio. I was slightly underwhelmed when my food arrived. It wasn't bad by any means, but it did rate lower... More

I think The Griffin is probably the most popular downtown hangout for my little city. Its a great place to meet friends and have an ale or cocktail, and I think its full menu / full bar combination separates it from two of only three other downtown locations open after dark. So if your in town and looking for the... More

Griffins is a pub ... With a plus. I really enjoy their breakfast. I meet family weekly for breakfast and eat there for an occasional lunch. The food is good and the price is fair.

Price is on the higher end, but the food is decent. I have been in here a half dozen times, and the service is always slow. It does seem to get busy and be popular with the locals as it has a nice location on one of the main drags downtown with ample parking.

Good place for simple but nicely prepared meals. Also serve breakfast with the usual standard fare. Occasional live entertainment. A bit on the noisy side, but happy noise but is sometimes difficult to have a conversation, especially in the main room.

My husband and I decided to hit the Griffin patio after we sent our son off to prom. I really enjoy the fish tacos and my husband had a huge and delicious sandwich. They had Long Island Ice Tea as a drink special and it was very well done.

Outstanding staff and food. We come to Battle Creek 2-3 times a year with a big group of baseball players. We will make Griffin Grill a permanent stop every time we are in town. They treat you outstanding unlike Arcadia Brewery, where they make you feel like your group is an inconvenience.

Thank Kurt I
