Their basil pesto pizza was fantastic& we loved the Caesar salad. A little pricey, but delicious, & we are on the deck outside where there were heaters, which helped since temps had dipped down.

This used to be our go-to place, as my review from a few years back attests. However, as others have correctly noted, Piper is on a slow-but-sure downhill slide. After dropping close to 60 bucks for two dinner "specials", we came away less than impressed (food was lukewarm and fairly blah) and less than full (why do we still have... More

It had been several years since we were up in the Holland area for leisure so we decided to have dinner by the lake. We requested a table by the water and the restaurant accomidated, which was a good view of the pier. I had the crushed almond crusted walleye and my husband had the steak hash. Both were perfectly...

The restaurant sits on the shore of Lake Macatawa in Holland MI, and overlooks the harbor that leads into Lake Michigan. We ate here several years ago when it was called "The Sand Piper". As I remember, the food was quite good during that visit. I called to make reservations, and was told without hesitation, that there was seating available... More

My wife and I were in Holland to get away. The hostess at the bed and breakfast suggested we try Piper and gave us a coupon for a free dessert. We did not have to wait long for a table. We did not know about the option of sitting outside and took an inside table. The view as incredible. We... More

The Piper has a great atmosphere... Especially the outdoor seating. Staff is nice... Service is pretty good. Food is Ok and a little expensive but the views and sunsets are very nice. Happy hour is nice... A drink gets you a piece of pizza... Nice.

We attended a wedding at the Piper and the setting was great for a small but well attended service. After the service we all went into the reception and were guided to our seats and promptly told that dinner wouldn't be for another hour and 45 minutes. HUH...??? When the wedding party and guests were eventually served (1 hour and... More

Even though the Piper staff worked many hours to please the Bride and Groom, we certainly fell short of your expectations.This wedding required more staff hours than any other event this summer. Staff was on call from 8 am. to accommodate the various activities. Becky, the event manager, worked with the bridal couple on all details including the dinner service... More

We sat outside on the balcony that overlooks the harbor. The food was wonderful, but the service and the views really made our visit excellent!

We had an early June dinner at the Piper and absolutely loved the prolonged sunset and view of the marina. Steelhead dinner and service were excellent -- This is a new favorite among many waterfront places in Pure Michigan. Elaine

We have always lived the Pioer, so we were excited to bring my best friend from San Francisco to experience it. Wow, underwhelming. The location and ambience us still great, but the attention to detail had gone the way of an ADHD middle school boy. Wrong cutlery, no fresh pepper, missed timing of entrees, crappy pat butter, not what you'd... More
