....not so much for eating with all of the great eating options in GR. Appetizers were ok for pub fair, entrees were mediocre at best. Convenient to DeVos and open until 2 a.m.

Just jumped in and enjoyed a Barbacoa sandwich. Basically a French dip with great kettle chips. Well priced, local tap beers, great friendly service.

Great food and service with friends during our visit to Art Prize. If you like chili you have to try their version!

Z's is a really nice place to go have a drink after work or one evening with friends. They have really good bar food and great drinks. They even play good music and pool tables

Four of us stopped and had appetizers for lunch. Looking on-line at their menu, we were drawn there looking for their brats and sauerkraut.

This was the only place open after midnight. We ordered the smothered tater tots. They weren't tots at all but more like deep fried mashed potatoes. Primarily a karaoke bar so if you're not into loud drunken college kids, you might want to skip this one.

Nice place across the street from the JW. We are on the Friday of Labor Day weekend at 830 walked in and sat at a booth next to the bar (no waiting). Next to the bar - every table is next to the bar because the bar is the entire length of the place. The menu is small which makes... More
