Stopped by around 2pm so they were not busy. In my opinion the best time is during off hours like this. The large open indoor area becomes rather noisy when the crowds increase. I really like the way the porch area flows with the interior. You are outside yet feel close to the bar with the big garage doors open in the warmer months. The food is above average and they have a nice selection to choose from. The feel is very laid back and not rushed. If this place was closer, I would be there every day. A must stop when in Michigan not just the area.

Incredible beer of any style from Stout to IPA. I have yet to have a beer by Founders that I disliked. All day IPA continues to be my daily drink, and will be for the foreseeable future.
