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.

The wife and I stopped in here for date night on 8-15-14.
Open layout, reminds me of a old converted warehouse. Kitchen with woodfire pizza oven in the corner so you can see all.
The menu was not bar food, but real food and quite good, wish more places would follow this lead and serve actual dinners.
Along with the normal sandwichs, burgers, pizzas, there was ribs (which are awesome), brisket,chicken. Appitizers, salads, etc.
They list all there beers and put a red dot on the ones that are currently on tap, so you get to see them all - nice selection to choose from.
Our server Breeann was awesome and knowledgeable
Im hard of hearing so the open layout gave me some fits, but we will be back and highly recommend the Battle Creek site to anyone, you will enjoy.
