Description: The Kirby House is the place to meet and eat in Grand Haven. A community favorite for excellent food, live entertainment, and simple relaxation with friends and family. Formerly a historic hotel of note, The Kirby House retains its old world charm, while providing all the pleasantries of new world fare and hospitality. Within walking distance of the shores of Lake Michigan, The Kirby House transcends the level of simple restaurant, and is the destination in Grand Haven for all things fun. The primarily American influenced menu is incredibly diverse and is exemplary in its attention to culinary detail and passion. Good times and laughter are located within.

Another of the Gillmore Collection restaurants - my least favorite. Grill Room Interior is old school traditional. While nothing is bad - it wasn't what I expected. Steak was dry and over cooked. Sides unimaginative. The Kirby House also has an upper deck with a lighter menu and a narrow view of a canal offering music. A far better place to eat than the grill IMHO.

Coast Guard Festival week is hectic, so it was nice to enjoy Attentive service and a good burger. If you like cold soups, the golden beet bisque was wonderful.

The food is NOT cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for! Steaks are great, especially the fillet. The "wedge" is an outstanding salad, and the bisque is always good. The specials tend to be the best values. If you like your martini strong, there's another plus...

Thank BBTA1

Went there on Saturday evening for dinner. We were told by employee earlier in the day that we would not need reservations for a 6:30 pm dinner, this was bad information and we should have made reservations. My wife had the prime ribs which was very good. I had the ahi tuna special which was not do great. Very thin piece of tuna and only half was rare, the other half was over cooked. The entertainment and conversation at the bar was enjoyable.
