I thought the food was pretty good for a bar but, IMO the beer prices were pretty high for a bar.. The service was extremely slow but, The bartender did mention that two waitresses hadn't shown up yet. I was in town for a week on business but, I never went back to see if the service was any better.

We went first to the fancier place across the street. There was a long wait and we saw Toivo's across the street. There was no wait and we got right in.the prices were very good. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Food was excellent.

About 40 of us met for breakfast after the Memorial Day weekend. We had reservations so they were ready for us. Food was excellent.

Enjoyed a fabulous brunch at this place celebrating the grandson's high school graduation. Family owned place with great hospitality. Extensive buffet line and an omelette station (build your own) along with meats, eggs, potatoes, chicken, pasta, etc. Our server was very attentive and the atmosphere was just plain good "hometown feeling"! It's located in the center of Grand Rapids and... More

We were invited to a surprise party at Toivo's. The service was good. A full bar is adjacent to the eating area so you could relax before or after your meal as well.

No complaints about our recent visit, because we didn't go expecting a fine dining experience. Expected lots of deep fried options, and was not disappointed. The server was polite, and attentive as she could be with a full house and one server. Food is good, just don't expect to read any reviews of the place in Appetite.

I went here at 9:30AM this morning - 1/13/16. WHAT A JOKE! There were two waitresses on duty. One was sitting at the bar chatting with someone else. I made eye contact with both waitresses. I waited for 15 minutes and not one waitress or employee acknowledged that I was even there. When I called to complain and state that... More

We had eggs, eggs benedict, bacon, sausage, ham, pancakes, waffles, egg bake, Swedish meatballs, wild rice hotdish, fresh fruit, cottage cheese, variety of desserts, and the price was very good. We will return the next time we are cruising thru town and try... More
