I recently attended a concert at Van Andel and this gem of a restaurant is tucked in right next to the arena. After a 45 minute wait (They were upfront about this and we agreed) we were seated in the patio area with comfortable couches and coffee tables. This made enjoying the company of our friends easy and relaxing because it felt like home and there was little "bar" noise.
The food was outstanding, we all had one of the burgers and many appetizers to try most of the menu. The mussels with Bacon and cream sauce is a sleeper hit and I would highly recommend them.
The beer selection is huge and our server was unable to give quality suggestions so we were left guessing. With any craft beer, the alcohol content can be high so pay attention when ordering your favorite style beer and take it into consideration. We ended up with a couple IPA pitchers and were happy with our choice.
There are a lot of cheaper restaurants in a two block radius but if you have never been to Hopcat, spend the extra dollars and check it out!
