Was randomly looking for a place to stop for dinner with my girlfriend on our way back from northern Michigan to Chicago. It just happened that we stopped in Holland, Michigan. Knowing that I enjoyed the beers from New Holland was definitely a draw, but I didn't realize that it was a restaurant too. Maybe I was bias, but I was like a kid on Christmas walking into this place. It was really cool to see all of the brewery (and distillery as I learned) where some really solid brews are made. It had an old warehouse like feel to the place, done intentionally to give it quite a lot of charm. The quality of the place was top notch, for a brewery like it was it felt like a neighborhood sports bar which was really cool for me. The service was pretty good, our waitress knew good recommendations for food and drink. If they made the beer, they had it. In fact it was so hard for me to choose I ended up having the whole sampler tray for my drink. It was well worth it. It turns out that on Tuesday (the day we were there) it was half priced non-high-gravity growlers. So I got myself a growler and was more than content with my visit. My girlfriend had some of their rum in a mixed drink and let me tell you it was some damn good rum. The foods that we had were excellent. The food was not particularly expensive at all it was reasonable and if it had not been for the purchasing of a growler and a bottle of the rum we would have not felt like we spent too much there at all. Both of us agreed we'd have no problem "randomly stumbling" back to this place on a return trip to Michigan. (1,585 characters)

Did the brewery tour for $10, not the brewpub, so ratings are for that. Great tour of the (ever expanding) brewery and distillery. Nice slow pace, 4 samples of 4 oz pours, plus tiny tastes of their spirits. And a logo'd pint glass at the end. Well worth the price for sure. (273 characters)

Hands down my favorite brew pub in Michigan. The service is fantastic and they also make a bunch of tasty spirits that they like to have you sample. I went back and bought many bottles of beer and knickerbocker gin and zeppelin bend whiskey. I highly recommend this place to everyone. (284 characters)

Great vibe to this place. I've been several times and the atmosphere and look it the bar/eatery area. Lots of polished wood give it a clean feel. I'm always a fan of being able to see the brewing equipment when I visit and eat at a brewery. I went last over St. Pats weekend so it was packed inside. The noise was still not over powering and there was plenty of room for all. The only knock is the limited parking downtown.

Service was spectacular given how busy they were. We got seated at the bar, ordered a few beers and food. The beers came quick and the good about 15 min after. Again being packed to the doors this was fantastic work from the kitchen area.

They had several seasonals to go along with the mainstays. They also offered 4 different cask selections as well. Dragons milk was available on tap and on cask! Very cool to see a wide variety of styles and presentations.

Overall a must visit for beer folks headed to the west side of Michigan. (963 characters)
