This is my second attempt at visiting Arcadia. Last year on my way through they were closed for remodeling. This attempt was a success. I rolled into Battle Creek around 3:30pm EDT on a Tuesday afternoon. I entered and peered to the right where there was some cans of beer stacked for sale. There was also a giant glass cooler with the brewery's output of beer. To the far left was a wood fired pizza oven. I passed through the dining area and bellied up to the bar. The bar was a little less than half full.

I tried four of the beers listed on the chalkboard, Allymon, The Big Finish, a nut brown ale, and Hopmouth on cask with citra nugget hops. I liked the fact that they had 10 ounce pours so I could get a decent sample of these beers. They also had pints, and I believe a larger size. The beers were separated into tiers with Tier 1 being the cheapest beers and Tier 3 being the most expensive. I found the prices to be reasonable. I also happened to be there during happy hour which meant $1 off the listed price.

I ordered an appetizer. It was called Devils on Horseback. It was dates with some type of pepper cream cheese wrapped with bacon and dipped in a honey Worcestershire sauce. It was fantastic! I would go back just to have this again. I ordered another appetizer that was a lamb roll. It was skimpy on the lamb but good.

The bartender was not overly friendly, but she was adequate and answered the few questions that I had. I chatted with a regular who recommended the Allymon. The beers were decent, but nothing was great. I have had most of the bottled beers from Arcadia, so I was happy with the selection of different beers at the pub.

Overall, I enjoyed my visit. I absolutely loved the Devils on Horseback, and the beer was pretty good. It seems to be in a decent area. Plus it makes a great stop between Marshall and Kalamazoo.

I always make sure to stop by Arcadia when I'm in town. There is always a nice selection of beer of various styles (it's not quite as heavily English influenced as I think they claim to be, but that's a good thing to me). Their pizza is great and I've only once ordered a sandwich which was a bit of a letdown by comparison. Service was friendly but a bit slow at times.

Brisket was outstanding. Bartender was knowledgeable and place was clean and non-smoking. Two rooms separate dinning from drinking.

Reviewing from a trip I made last summer, but still have a memory of how great this place was. Great beer (quality, selection of tap and bottles to go), great food (had the Cuban sandwich. Awesome.) and very friendly and helpful staff. It's even easy to get to and easy parking in parking garage across the street. Nothing but good about this place!
