We went for dinner when passing through the area. We didn't order a drink or beer, but there is some thing they do during Happy Hour. Our waitress Payton was very peppy and friendly. Our meals were good., fries were an extra $4, quite pricey for what we received, and had to ask to get the pickle spear. I assume too many people waste them so that is why you have to ask.

We were in Kalamazoo for an orientation for my son. Looked up on trip advisor a spot to grab a bite to eat. Staff looked and acted frazzled as there was a mid-size party when we were there of 25 people. Stick to the hamburger as it was good, the dish with the mashed potatoes and chicken was not impressive at all.

We visited for dinner before catching WMU's Rocky Horror Picture Show at the State Theatre. It was very busy on homecoming Saturday but the place is large and a fun location. Get the cheese curds!

A really neat place with an extensive menu for both food and drinks. The food was excellent and the service was equally as great.

Fried pickles were huge. Street corn could have been warmer. Stuffed burger was superb, & sweet potato were yummy. Buddy love his chix sandwich & hand cut fried, & friend enjoyed her smash burger patty with onion dip & chips. Beer was good. The market exchange on beer doesn't start until 6. So unfortunately we drove 2 hrs, & missed out on that experience as we popped in around 4. Due to covid the games can not be used along with the pool tables.

My wife and i parked in downtown Kalamazoo and found this place on trip advisor. We could have parked at the restaurant, but it was an easy walk from where we parked. The place has a good vibe inside and is clean and well decorated. The wait staff was timely in getting to us and taking our order. The beer choices were varied and offered something for everyone. They have mixed drinks as well. The food was a typical bar food type menu, and we both ordered burgers. They were both very good and well prepared. The pickles on the burger tasted like homemade pickles my aunt used to make on the farm. They were amazing and had just a little kick to them as well. For a quick lunch, it turned out to be a great dining experience. We definitely enjoyed every minute of it. Would recommend to anyone.

Son and daughter-in-law moved to Kalamazoo so we needed to check out the local restaurants. I've never seen "stock market" beer pricing anywhere else so it makes it kind of fun. Because it was not busy we could actually be a "market maker" with our buys. The food was very good; from sandwiches, to kabobs, to home style meat loaf. My only gripe, and this is generic for all craft breweries now days, I wish they would just name the beer after the style instead of all the cutesy names. I hate having to do a bunch of research to figure whether "Bouncing Betty's Hawaiian Dreamsicle" is a weissbier, a red ale, or a stout. It has gotten to where the waitstaff has to go back and ask because they don't have it memorized either. Apple pie dessert was a special plus. This was a C-19 affected Tues night but I bet it is packed on a weekend in normal times. The arcade on the bottom floor looked fun too.

My wife's salmon was a little fishy (yes I know it's fish). I had the lamb it was fair, the Mexican grilled corn was good. Beer selection was good service kinda slow.

The beer exchange is a great place to grab a bite to eat. Also to partake in the beer drinking! Love the atmosphere and how the beers trade like the stock market! The food is great as well!

The experience of this place was awesome! There are pool tables and pinball machines in the lower level bar. The "stock market" theme is amazing, the market crashed twice while we were there making our drinks super cheap. The food is excellent as was the service! I really hope they open a Beer Exchange in Macomb County one day!

We got snowed in and needed a spot for food and beer. KBE was amazing! We ended up with a spot at the bar and the service was stellar. Aubrey was amazing behind the bar, she gave us all the beer profiles we needed and was on the spot with our food orders. Travis did a great job stepping in when we needed it, he was just as knowledgeable about the entire beer list. All in all a great visit, would highly recommend for anyone.

Have eaten here numerous times over the years. Service is ALWAYS good. You can't say that about other restaurants in Kzo. This was a business lunch for two. We ordered from the special lunch menu which I wish I took a pic of. Some of the most unique combinations of food. Cheeseburger soup was great - not greasy not grainy not rubbery - balanced and unique (when was the last time you had lettuce on top of soup?). The bar chips and onion dip are super stars and don't miss the opening bell at 5:00, they do a cool thing with the patrons who are present. Sadly, our lunch didn't last until 5!

I've been here twice recently to meet friends for a casual meal and chat, both times during the day. You can actually talk here; the background noise is minimal and the music is audible but not overwhelming. I hate having to shout over din, and that isn't the case here. The food is quite decent, but it's the ambience I really like: very open, lots of light, exposed brick and several levels. The waitstaff is efficient and friendly. Try the pulled pork sandwich. Also, there is something called "cheeseburger soup." It's a little weird; basically, it's cheese soup with some lettuce, tomato and chopped bacon thrown in. A friend had it since it's gluten free and said it was good.

This place is in a cool building with a nice bar area. Food is very good. The beer selection is decent but the pricing is hokey. Can’t really tell if a good deal or not.
