“Great deals!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Went here with friends before a Griffins game and took advantage of the happy hour burger/fries/beer combo for $6. Super delish and worth it. Only wish the beer choices weren't so limited.

“A beer-lovers paradise”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

if you love beer, this is the place to go. If you can't have beer, because you're gluten-intolerant like me....you'll have limited choices. Yes, there's a full bar, and they do serve mead (honey wine).....but I'd at least like the option of a bottled gluten-free beer or hard cider.

I'm still giving this a 4-star rating, because of the fun pub-like atmosphere, the selection for beer drinkers (I have friends that love this place), and the excellent and knowledgeable wait staff. Speaking of waiting, you'll have to wait for a place to sit on a weekend night, because this place will be packed!

“A reason to visit Grand Rapids”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

My husband and I have visited twice for afternoon drinks and snacks while attending a conference. The beer choices are vast and the service is great. Next time we will come for a meal. Located in a beautiful old building.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We visited here on a Friday Night....mistake #1. After a wait to be seated we were escorted to a heated (barely) tent area with metal patio furnishings and sat in the back next to the edge of the very drafty tent....16 degrees outside....we couldn't even take off our coats....after another lengthy wait we were delivered our drinks....which were the highlight of the experience. The food was less than marginal...my burger came out totally blackened and tasted burnt. Very disappointed in our visit. With so many wonderful choices in Gr. Rapids...I doubt we will ever return to this place again.
