The best prime rib we've had in Grand Rapids. This is a local restaurant, no sign of corp chain here. They have good specials, a full bar, friendly wait staff and bartender, roaring fire in winter, steaks that are very good.....a warm an inviting place...More

This restaurant has become a favorite of ours. We've always had exceptional service and food. The ambiance is wonderful, with the fireplace in the middle of the restaurant. Every meal we've had has been above expectations, as well as generous serving sizes. Everything from the...More

This restaurant has gone downhill. Mediocre crab cakes, green olives on a " traditional" patty melt, salad bar moves from both ends so people run into each other at center but different items on each side so lines get muddled up.

Kind of "throw back" style. Like ship's galley. Great prime rib and walleye. I go back for the food, but I hear they have a really good bar. Go casual but...give it a try.

My husband and I dined on a Saturday night. Service, atmosphere, and food were A+++. We had a group on which made the visit even better.

Got a walleye fish. It tasted OK. It had good services, but felt the price was a little high, based on the environment and dish quality.

Our food was excellent, served hot and attractively plated. I believe the prices are inflated to make up for all the coupons they offer. The furnishings are very worn and the restrooms definitely need updating. We had reservations, but wound up waiting more than 30...More

My wife and I dined at Great Lakes Shipping Co. last night with another couple. We liked it thoroughly, just as we always do. The service, food quality and ambiance are all reliably good. This is not a five-star dressy tea room. It is a...More
