I have been quite a few times. The staff is really nice and helpful. The beer and wine though not vast is always on point. the bands are always good and fun for the crowd. The seating around the stage is really neat. Great for you and a date if you want to see a band on the weekend.

Great food selection and the prices are reasonable. I recommend the electric goat cheese and any kind of mac n cheese they have on the menu. Try the green tea martini as well, you won't be disappointed.

Recommended by the host of my lodging, The Union offered a broad menu and nice selection of Michigan craft beers. Sitting at the bar I enjoyed the almost undivided attention of the bartender as the place was kind of slow on this Tuesday evening. I started with the seafood chowder which was a bit thin but full of flavor. The... More

Great service and excellent food. Our large party had plenty of room and never waited for our waitress whom was very attentive.

We had dinner/drinks here on a Thursday night. This is nice place to meet up with friends/family to socialize. It is a casual atmosphere. Not too loud but not totally quiet either. My dinner choice was the brisket. It was an above average portion and it did taste good. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Also there was a... More

The Union is one of my favorite restaurants/bars in kzoo. It's just a fun place to be. The live music never disappoints and neither do the drinks. They have some great menu options for food too.

My party appreciated our servers' desire to please but we were disappointed in the quality and presentation of food. Soup for our party of 3 served lukewarm and lunch sandwiches were C at best. Seems more like a drinks and live music venue but not a quality lunch stop.

I must apologize up front. While I have eaten here many times, the Union has become a specialty dining place for me. Now from my experience all of the food served here is delicious, but once I discovered their pulled pork sandwich that is all I have ordered. It comes either a soup and half sandwich (try this with a... More

Order the Dirty South burger with crawfish and aligator if you want to get your Cajun on! This food is better than most and a perfect stop on the ped mall in downtown Kzoo.

The Union is always a fun atmosphere with great food and service. I've been here several times and have always enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended if you're looking for an upscale place to eat in downtown Kalamazoo. Good for date nights or a night out with friends/family.
