Came in for a brief snack and there was hardly anyone there. Within 10 minutes the place was hopping. Sandwiches are good. Appetizers are average. Atmosphere was fine. Wait staff was excellent. REal value

Nice atmosphere with live music, but too loud. I've had a tasty kajoon rib. Very good value for money.

Nice place for a quick bite. The burgers and fries are pretty good and they have a wide choice of local Michigan beers.

Busy place and good options for all sorts of food. They have live entertainment at times which really makes it busy. We enjoy sitting next to the windows to watch everyone walk by. Good for a casual meal, family or date.

We stumbled upon this place which has changed over the years we have visited Kalamazoo. The food was pretty good, not outstanding. But the night we went, there was a jazz group with enjoyable music and there was NO COVER! Glad we went there.

Mediocre visit and on a Monday. My BBQ was serviced with spicy sauce, but not enough to warm it up to a reasonable temperature. College aged staff was acceptable but not stellar.

Average food, great spin dip! Good service. Was there mid day so unsure of how busy it gets during the evening, would go back to give main dishes another shot.

Very convenient and good food! My only complaint is the wine selection isn't as good as other local restaurants. It has entertainment on weekends and that makes it fun! They do have an outside area where you can dine and that is a nice for...More

TERRIBLE SERVICE ASSigned waiter had both outdoor and indoor. Waited way too long for everything. Management should be fired. No effort to compensate for delay of actually calling from inside restaurant. WOW Millennium group needs to step it up.

The place has a nice atmosphere. There was supposed to be live music but there wasn’t. Gumbo was good but brisket melt was dry and lacked flavor. The waiter was really nice and took good care of us.

Not sure if the Union has a private room. The Wine Loft in Kalamazoo might, and Zazios has a private section that would probably work well.
