Toivo's is a nice local restaurant and bar. The food is excellent and the servers are super friendly. The decor is outdated, but the food makes up for that. The Sunday Breakfast Buffet is fabulous, including the best omelets and waffles I've ever had. They are both included in the price, so I feel it is an excellent value. I... More

I thought the food was pretty good for a bar but, IMO the beer prices were pretty high for a bar.. The service was extremely slow but, The bartender did mention that two waitresses hadn't shown up yet. I was in town for a week on business but, I never went back to see if the service was any better.

I apologize we let you down -- it sounds like we were short-staffed that day, and we're disappointed that took away from your time with us. If there's any chance we can make this right with you next time you're in our neck of the woods, I hope you'll consider joining us for a better time. Take care! Warmly, Nicole... More

We went first to the fancier place across the street. There was a long wait and we saw Toivo's across the street. There was no wait and we got right in.the prices were very good. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Food was excellent.

Enjoyed a fabulous brunch at this place celebrating the grandson's high school graduation. Family owned place with great hospitality. Extensive buffet line and an omelette station (build your own) along with meats, eggs, potatoes, chicken, pasta, etc. Our server was very attentive and the atmosphere was just plain good "hometown feeling"! It's located in the center of Grand Rapids and... More

We were invited to a surprise party at Toivo's. The service was good. A full bar is adjacent to the eating area so you could relax before or after your meal as well.
