I've had bad experiences here before but thought I'd give them another chance. That was a mistake. Like before, the servers here were beyond rude. We tried 5 or 6 beers and none of them were even average. The only redeeming quality is their food,...More

The location is perfect, beer quality is on par with Grand Rapids' legendary Beer City status, incredible food, and the atmosphere fits almost any social situation in which one could find themselves. Have also visited for their brunch - 10/10
