I have been to Founder's three times. When I am in Grand Rapids for an event, most recently a Grand Rapids Griffins hockey game, I stop here for the food and beer. Since I can get the Centennial IPA, All Day IPA, Breakfast Stout and occasionally a few others in the local store, I get something different. This visit it was the Imperial Stout. A very good stout that poured dark, almost black.
The food has always been good and this time we got a beer cheese dip to share and I had a ham sandwich they were featuring. Sorry, I do not recall the name. All four of us liked the sound of it but I was the only one to order it. What scared everyone else away was that it had potato chips on the sandwich, yes on the sandwich. We thought they would be stale/soggy but the were kettle chips and they held up well with a good crisp crunch in every bite of the good sandwich.
The place is large just having expanded. A very large open dining room and a smaller area to the right as you walk in that has high top tables and a pool table and an additional bar. There is also a covered patio outside with heaters in the roof to make it very comfortable to sit out on a picnic table as we did last year. Watching snow floating down having a great sandwich and beer was very relaxing. A beer garden was another addition with the expansion.
