Let me start by saying my husband is in the ANG stationed in Grand Rapids. We spend ALOT of time there. Sundance is a little gem we discovered a few years ago, and we try to go at least once everytime we are in town....We went there on Friday morning March 8, 2024 with my daughter and her boyfriend. We arrived at about 10:10am. Stood at the door waiting to be seated for over 10 minutes, several servers and bartenders looked at us and went on their way none of them acknowledging us. Finally after 10 minutes my husband went up to the bar to ask if we were supposed to seat ourselves, and a VERY rude server who was just standing around talking told him that there was a hostess but she was very busy and he would have to wait. There were about 6 tables in the whole place with people at them. About 10 minutes later a hostess came up and took us to our seats. Server was quick only taking about 2 minutes to get our drink order. Which FYI they no longer have fresh squeezed juice. She came back quickly with our drinks to take our order, we all ordered the pancake platters (pancakes,bacon,and eggs.) Except my husband ordered corn beef hash, and my daughter go a giant cinnamon roll. This was about 10:30 at this point. About a half an hour later the server came up and told my husband that they were out of corn beef hash. Which is about 5 things on the menu. She proceeded to tell him that they have been out all week. (Should have said that from the beginning) so he ordered the pancake platter also. Another half hour (11:35) went by and they finally brought our food out. I asked for crispy bacon because I don't like it limp. They forgot my sons syrup, my back was BURNT I mean BLACK. My daughters cinnamon roll was easily half the size it Normally is, and was dry, with some sort of watery glaze on the plate for it. Her favorite part was the cream cheese icing which them menu sid it was. Pancakes were doughy and undercooked. My daughter asked the server about the frosting on the cinnamon roll and she said that the chef was now making his own it was no longer cream cheese, to which my daughter stated that it still says cream cheese on the menu, the server promptly rolled her eyes and said oh well it isn't anymore, and walked away. After 10 minutes of our server walking by and not stopping my husband went up to the bar to ask for a manager, I asked again another server after 10 more minutes. Finally about noon the manager came out and we told her about the issues, no one took more then 2 bites of their food. The manager smelled like she had been hot boxing on her car for an hour, honestly the smell was making me sick to my stomach. She took off some of our food and never even offered an apology. So at 12:30 after being there 2 1/2 hours we had to pay $50 for food no one ate and had to go somewhere else and actually eat. I will NEVER return and will not recommend to any of our friends. The place has really gone downhill.More

Great breakfast, great service. Large selection of coffees available or just black and still excellent. Delicious breakfast food. We are not morning alcohol drinkers but had a breakfast selection of drinks which seemed fun if you wanted.

We ate dinner here and the food was delicious! Almost everything is made fresh in the restaurant and everything tasted amazing. I highly recommend their margarita! Our server was also wonderful. We will definitely go back next time we are in town.

Stopped here for dinner during a business trip. Located close and within walking distance of a number of hotels in the area. Great menu with a wide selection of drinks and food. I had fish and chips which were great. A gentleman down the bar...from me had the enchiladas and he said they were quite good too. Friendly staff with fast service. Meals were affordably priced as were the drinks. Lots of TVs available to catch the sports action and a warm inviting atmosphereMore

The place is a really cool layout, a very comfortable bar, seating at tables, booth's or high tops. It must be a good place to work because it seemed like there was a lot of staff. We sat at the bar for drinks and appetizers,...the bar person was excellent. I had a BLT bloody Mary that is cool, 2 pieces of bread on your plate, lettuce, bacon, tomato in the Mary. A little Mayo in a cup and wa la you got the BLT. Fun and gooooood. Came back for breakfast/brunch on Sunday I had the Burrito wife had eggs bene, oh man lots of food and delicious.More

Cool inside decor. Lots of room so you are not on top on the other patrons. Limited lunch menu but breakfast all day. The Michigan Cherry Salad got two thumbs up. Classic cheeseburger was very, very juicy and tasty.

3 orders of our fish and chips were okay. not greasy. nothing special about the french fries. the waiter said each order came w 3 very large pieces of fish. actually came with two-one large and one very small. he apologized and said he would...bring us the extra fish since he had been mistaken. then, he charged us for the extra fish. the omelete was usual. there is no real place to wait for a table and the place gets to be a zoo during eating times. makes it very uncomfortable and they take no reservations. celebrating a 60th anniversary and an 80th birthday. nothing special said or done with that notification. the one on 28th street is a lot better. i won't return to this downtown restaurant. too many other choices to want a repeat.More

The breakfast is excellent! Delicious and fresh! Served with a smile by our server Emily. Ice tea was freshly brewed, and refilled with a smile. So glad we stopped. SO worth it and reasonably priced.

After being seated at the bar because there wasn't any room for five, even tho there was an empty table behind us, we were told after ordering drinks and food to speed up the process we were told we couldn't move to a table. What?!?!?...I ordered the shrimp tacos. Absolutely hands down. The worse tacos I have ever had. There was four tiny deep fried shrimp swimming in bbq sauce on lettuce, not the Nappa cabbage stated on the menu, and that was all. Nothing else, no other veggies, etc. If you are going to charge $14.00 for two tacos at least put something on them. Small sangria was $8.00! On the upside my friend's Ruben looked super. Cold French fries. Next time I'll go somewhere else. Too many other places in town to give them a second chance.More
