    The naan club and the appetizer mushrooms. Both tasty and ample portions. But the real game-changer was Jessie, our server. We'll return if we can have her take our table. She deserves a raise!

    Steak and eggs is the best dish on the brunch menu, closely followed by the Green Eggs 'n' Hamms. Skip the Royal Bee cocktail, it's overpoweringly gingery. And I love ginger.

    Most delicious caprese ever-- Thai caprese salad, with heirloom tomatoes. Ruby red grapefruit added extra kick!

    Best local food and Beer in Grand Rapids. But the Mimosa and Bloody Mary Bar for Sundays is a "must go"

    This gastro pub uses homegrown herbs and veggies, and has tons of great local beers, plus great burgers! Be sure to sit outside on the patio

    Blue/Bacon burger was really good. Not the best in the city, but still excellent. Get some fries with their amazing Ranch dressing too.

    The menu changes all the time, so ignore all the tips that recommend a specific dish that no longer exists. This place has a creative kitchen, so try whatever looks good.

    Everything is great here, but must mention that the music is better than a playlist than I'd have at home. Props to the dj or pandora station.

    Servers recommend hovering by tables as they're finishing if you want to grab one. Slightly awkward but when it's busy you gotta do what ya gotta do...

    Don't ask for a French 75. Apparently the bartender doesn't know what it is and doesn't know how to look it up.
