This place has closed permanently. Too bad because it used to be good. Apparently being converted into condos and maybe office space?

Drove in from Toronto returning to Chicago. Last ate here August of 2014. One of the best places in Holland to eat. Drove up to eat only to find a sign saying they have closed. Checked around and unfortunately it is permanent.

We just had dinner at the Piper a few weeks ago. It was beautiful and so peaceful to sit outside on the lake. Dinner was OK, service was slow. We returned on Tuesday hoping to sit outside again. They have closed after 31 years.

Saw lots of mixed reviews on this place so I was a bit nervous about going because we were celebrating a special birthday, but I was very happy with our whole experience. The food was delicious, service was outstanding and we sat outside and the view was simply beautiful. The owner came by and was very gracious. From our experience,... More

This restaurant promised a lot but only delivered on some. The location and view is spectacular. We waited a little longer for an outside table and weren't disappointed. The view was beautiful. However, the menu didn't impress. There weren't a lot of options and the prices were high. We wouldn't visit again.

The only thing this restaurant had going for it was the view over the habor and the sunsets. The food was mediocre at best, even though they claim to have an award winning chef. They were clearly understaffed and the owner was obviously flustered. When we arrived for our reservation we were told that it would be a 10 minute... More

We have dined here when in Holland before, and always had a good experience. We were meeting friends and arrived just before 5:00, when the restaurant opened. We wanted to eat on the outside deck, which has limited seating so we were the first ones to arrive so we could be seated outside. The hostess proceeded to tell us that... More

Great recommendation by our bed and breakfast hosts to celebrate our anniversary at Piper Restaurant. Without advertising our special day, our waitress was more than accomodating by placing us at a table right at the windows overlooking the marina. My wife ordered the filet and I had the Walleye. Both prepared properly and delivered steaming hot. Piper also offers and... More
