Have been here many times. The food is outstanding and their jalapeno pizza is to die for!!! Best staff around and they have a great selection of brews on tap from many Michigan breweries.

The bird is definitely a dive bar....it felt like one in every aspect. But, in the early afternoon of a summer weekday in a college town, it ended up being a great spot for lunch. There was a good beer selection, which helps, of course....The food prices on the menu were very reasonable, especially for the portion sizes. And...the burger I thought was excellent! One of the better ones I had in a while. Flavorful, big, juicy....a great dive bar lunch!More

In two years ago for a comic con at the casino , we like to hit the bars in the area. We were told to head downtown, the first place we hit was the bird. We were not disappointed, it is your local college crowd,...it was very busy . The service was great, the drinks are a good size , plenty of beers on tap, including several local. Next trip in to town I would like to try the food , Pizza looks good.More

What a great place to hang out. It gets very busy nights, Thursday-Saturday for sure. Still super fun, if you like to have your drinks in a bar with some awesome character, and not pitch black dark. They also have great food, it’s a favorite...burger and beer joint of mine on a afternoon. I’ve been going to the Bird for about 20 years now!More

We were in town for a show at the casino on a Saturday and decided to try the Bird for dinner. Never having been there we weren't sure what to expect and our first impression when we walked in was dive bar but by the...end of our meal we quickly realized it is a diamond in the rough. It's your typical college bar filled with pool tables and dart boards, booths and tables scrawled with graffiti, and loud music. We were greeted right away by a friendly server who took great care of us. My husband ordered a bacon cheeseburger with fries while I ordered a 10" pizza, and of course we had to try an order of moon bread after reading all the reviews about it. The food came out quite quickly and everything was delicious and piping hot. The pizza was fantastic, hubby helped me eat it and he commented more than once on how good it was. He said his burger was cooked perfectly and the moon bread lived up to its hype....so soft and cheesy. Very reasonable prices too, all the food we ordered plus 2 Cokes was $23 out the door. By the time we left the place was starting to fill up with college students so if that's not your crowd I would recommend going there before 8pm. We will go back to the Bird again whenever we are in Mount Pleasant.More

We met here on a Monday to chat and get together with friends we haven't seen in awhile. They pour a nice drink and have peanuts for everyone. We love their burgers and pizza! Great to eat there or carry out and enjoy at home!

The Bird is my favorite bar! They have 14 Michigan beers on tap, and they change often. The pizza, baked subs, and burgers are amazing! The place is family owned and the staff try their best, even on the busiest nights to provide fast, friendly...service. Oh, and the prices are extremely reasonable:)More

Stopped here for dinner during a brief visit to Mount Pleasant. This is a local college restaurant/bar but the food was delicious and the service was great. We had one of their baked sandwiches (calzone) and it was awesome! Can't wait to go back some...day!More

We met a couple friends here to watch them play darts. Guess we got in before the crowds, about 8 on a Monday, and it was not busy at all. We ordered breads pizzas and beers. The pizza was good. Very cheesy. Would have preferred...a little more zest to the sauce though. Plenty of toppings. The crust I felt was above average. The moon bread was delicious. Would like to try the others. We all agreed we will be back!More

We stumbled upon this place after a wedding rehearsal dinner and was pleasantly surprised with the beer selection, friendly bartenders, and people. Apparently, this is a popular college bar but it was summertime so it wasn't overly crowded. Glad that we found this spot since...the rest of the town was pretty quiet for a Friday night.More

I used to frequent The Bird as a student at CMU. The best thing The Bird had going for it was the lack of "bros" and "Ke$has" that would be more likely to hang out at The Wayside or O'Kelley's. The crowd was very hipstery,...but I never really ran into someone I didn't like. As far as drinks are concerned, the bar offered standard cheap beers for students (PBR, Miller Hi-Life, etc), but it also had some better beers on tap. The bartenders were hard workers and pretty friendly. As far as food, I'd highly recommend the pizza, but the burgers were also pretty good. The downside of The Bird is that it's very crowded on Thirsty Thursdays. The lines to get in are often very long, and the bar becomes loud and uncomfortable. As bars go, though, The Bird was probably my favorite in Mt. Pleasant.More

The Bird is town's number one place to get some reasonably priced drinks and bar food. They have a ton of different beers and run specials every night. The crowd is usually college kids, especially during the weekends. Staff are very nice and attentive -...great place to make new friends and have drinks in a good and friendly atmosphere.More
