I went here a couple of times during a weekend stay in Grand Rapids.
Atmosphere is nice and tasteful. I was here during the lunch hour and had ample seats available. I was also here at night where I couldn't find a seat to save my life. I read previous posts about this. I would agree it can be annoying, it is only if I can't get a beer. This wasn't the case. I got one right away by going up to the bar and immediately a bar tender took notice and served me. Issue resolved.
The beer selection is very good. While I respect a bottle selection and tap selection, I respect bars that showcase the local. This does that.
I had several of the house beers, all range from so so to excellent. The food here is the hidden gem. Maybe one of the better food and beer places here. Crack fries and mac and cheese are great as well as the burgers.
We didn't drive but there is ample parking in GR. Staff was polite and accommodating to my 1year old.
One suggestion, with such an extensive list of foods and beers, suggest some pairings. Only my opinion.
