    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.

    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.

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

    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

    Monte python holy grail ale, and a Winchester burger is perfection. Add awesome open mic with Lucas Wilson....always a great atmosphere.

    The Winchester Bar Cheese is amazing...and make sure to check out the daily dinner specials! Unique and delicious!

    Don't order the sausage and kraut special. It's more like an appetizer than a meal. 1 sausage and a 1/4 cup of kraut for 11.00, really?

    Took me 30 minutes before I realized it shared the same name as the Shaun of the Dead pub. Also good food and nice staff.

    Located in the trendy SoGay (South of Gay) area of Grand Rapids, they have a delicious menu featuring locally grown foods..

    Outdoor seating is fantastic. Great beer selection. Wings are very good but actual wings, not like BWW wings.

    Benjamin Blackmer · August 7, 2014

    Upscale pub in urban environment with great atomosphere, food and outdoor capability in warmer months.

    Menu and beer list changes frequently. Everything is great! Sit at the bar. Have Dara as your Bartender!

    Great place for a Saturday afternoon...service, chicken meatballs and of course, beer, were all fabulous!

    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...

    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.

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

    Awesome bean dip and the egg sandwich is so good! Great service and great bloody marys!

    I'm always a fan of Vandermill Cider and the Ginger Peach is awesome! Get it while it's on tap.

    Everything and anything is amazing. Seriously. Make your own mimosas and the grilled cheese blt are great!

    Winnie the Pub is a great place for craft brews and food. Good Happy Hour prices.

    Alex George · August 29, 2011
  • Ryan N.

    The deviled eggs have more mayo than an entire Jimmy Johns sandwich in one egg.

    Ryan Nosler · September 24, 2013
  • Katie D.

    BYO Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar on Saturday and Sundays, $5 food menu!

    Katie Dangerface · November 3, 2011

    Explore your inner foodie. Pass on the hummus for something more adventurous. Tonight (12/16) was lengua and beets. Fantastic.

    The Mecklenburglars Bicycle Gang meets here weekly on Wednesdays. Bike there and have a drink. Meet some peeps.

    Food is way over rated here. Seems like the place to be if you are into eurotrash

    Monique Eckert · September 26, 2010

    French dip is to die for . Along with ginger peach beer. Heaven 🙌

    Order the Winchester chips & Salsa in an outstanding atmosphere.

    Jeff Ripley · February 11, 2012
  • Dan G.

    Get the Naan club for lunch or dinner. This is my grandwich.

    Dan Gibson · October 5, 2011
  • Dana H.

    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.

    Dana Harshbarger · December 16, 2012
  • Kellysue H.

    Can get very busy but good food and good beer. Not to pricey.

    Kellysue Hornsby · October 29, 2011
  • Mark G.

    The chips are great, but you have to get the yucca fries!

    Mark Grevengoed · December 27, 2009
  • Chris A.

    Kristen is sure to sit in her section.

    Chris A · September 20, 2013

    $3 bloodys and $5 foods. Definitely the place to be on Sunday!

    Food good, but inconsistent, servers seem disinterested if you ever come back.

    Specials are really hit and miss. Mine was miss.

    Try the Braised Bacon sandwich. You won't be disappointed.

    The bacon cheddar meatballs are awesome.

    Arika Smith · August 2, 2013

    Tim Boelman · April 29, 2010
  • SuperDre

    I don't even like beer but the blueberry apple cider by VanderMill is amazing!

    SuperDre · September 24, 2011
  • Katy

    Get a burger and cry about the naan club being gone forever. Yes, I'm still upset.
