Food was wonderful. The staff was very pleasant. I had several great salads. They have many vegaterian meals and gluten free. The beer itself is enough of a reason to come in. The area it is in has many other brewer's and small stores.

Eclectic food menu. Very disappointing! I'm a big scotch egg connoisseur. Try them everywhere I go. This was by far the worst one I've ever had, and twice as expensive as any one that I've ever had. Go for the beer, eat somewhere else.

The Brewery Vivant is in a very trendy up-and-coming neighborhood and is located in a renovated old church. It's venue is all about microbrews and very trendy, unique, food choices.

One of my favorite breweries - I love Belgian beer! It's sometimes a little chaotic, and rather noisy, but a fun time nonetheless.

My travels have brought me to Grand Rapids, making Michigan the 39th state I have visited. On my first night here, I had the culinary delight of eating at Brewery Vivant. I ordered a dark beer called the Undertaker... one of the best I've had. For my main course, I went with a local favorite called Poutine. Sounds and looks... More

For a quick snack, a beer with friends or a gathering for work friends, Vivant is a great choice. The patio and the area inside the "chapel" are beautiful and as intimate or engaging as you want to make them.

Loved the back patio here for beers... Plus it's with it to come see the redone church. Can't beat the beer selection however. Didn't eat but others food looked good.|

Love everything about this place. Loved their beer and fries. Everyone there was so friendly. The place being an old church was very interesting.

We brought our friends from out of town for late afternoon dinner and they were highly impressed! Delicious appetizers, kids meals, and perhaps the best burger in town! Beer flights are a great way to sample the many delicious brews! Very friendly and knowledgable staff. We'll be back - highly recommend!

For a brewery this is a unique place. The inside looks like a church. The atmosphere both inside and out are really nice. My husband said his beer was good. I had cider & it was average, not bad just nothing special. Our food was really good. We would definitely visit again.
