    House made chips! But other than that, average food.

    Pretty good, seems a little overpriced for what u get

  • Jasmine C.

    I had the gouda pasta and caramel salted apple pie, it was really good. Not too sure on our server...she was ok.

    Love the atmosphere here. Good menu selection and some reasonably priced wine. Get a seat upstairs if you can!

    Nice spot in downtown GR. Good selection of local beers and the food was delicious. Had the chicken Gouda wrap - try it. Sit on the patio when the weather is nice and have a couple pints.

    Not open until 4pm on a beautiful Saturday during Festival. Major fail!

    Butternut squash soup. Great on a chilly day.

    If you order the buffalo burger, be sure to tell them to cook it medium at most.

    Awesome place. There is the part below where its louder and upstairs where its quiet and romantic. Their food and menu is awesome. Deserts are killer. Stuff u don't get anywhere else.

    Always delicious! If the downstairs is too noisy for your taste, the upstairs seating is very quiet and secluded. Great servers and decent prices. I recommend the gouda chicken pasta!

    Watch how you speak with the hostess, most likely will get glared at and not spoken to.

    Best place to get a reasonably priced steak in town.

    Grab the Ostrich burger when they're running it as a special!

    The bar is slanted... use a coaster.

    One of my favorite places in Downtown GR. Try the Spinach Artichoke Dip and the Smoked Gouda Chicken Pasta... both to die for!

    The red pepper hummus is amazing, definite recommendation.

    Ben Johnson · April 21, 2010
  • Jeremy K.

    Good selection for food and martinis - and food came out real fast. Service can be hit or miss, but with it so close to DeVos it is a good option before a show.
