“Holland, MI Tulips”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Our pie-loving friends saw the sign for Crane's on the way to Holland, Michigan, which made it a must stop on the way home. I loved the Curry Chicken Salad with Nan bread. Others had salads with delicious raspberry or apple muffins. All bought pies to take home to share with their families.

The antiques filling the restaurant and even the washrooms offers lots of memories.

“Great Family Food in a Wonderful Old Timey Setting!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Simple fare for the hungry. You will find some great french toast and sandwiches and some really awesome warm apple cider donuts! What you won't find? Deep fried or carbonated drinks! The apple cider is delicious all year round and of course the pies are not to be missed!

“Best pie”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

I saw other reviewers dissin' this pie and I don't get it. I have had the apple, the peach, the fruit mince, the cherry and a chocolate pie and every one was worth eating again. Fruit fillings are the right combo of sweet and tart, and crust is great. The bakery sells delicious apple butter, apple butter bread, the spiced cider and also tried the cherry preserves which are excellent. The restaurant has a limited menu, but we had a couple of good sandwiches, and MORE PIE, and then bought more pie for home. The restaurant has a collection of every antique you ever saw in your great-grandmothers house if you grew up in Michigan.

“Down-home atmosphere, quality food & baked goods”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

This trip to SW Michigan, I was lucky enough to sample 8 different Crane desserts- sometimes warm with vanilla ice cream. Yum! Yum! You may have meals and/or desserts in the restaurant, but also just order from their bakery. Pies and more can be purchased baked or frozen. I also got fresh cider from this orchard. Our sandwich supper the day after Thanksgiving was delicious; we saved room for blueberry pie a la mode. U-pick blueberries in season, and other happenings during the growing season. Definitely worth a stop, even if you are just passing through the area.

“Quaint, Country, and a great value”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Nice restaurant - we like that the money stays local. Food us very good, soup was great. Sweets are very good - pie crust left a little to be desired, but cobbler was Great!
