While in Michigan we ate dinner here one night. I saw their draft list and I started drooling, many things sounded wonderful. I started off the coco loco which I could have sworn would have been a safe bet but NO it was horrid, I see others like this beer maybe I had a bad beer? I don't know right from the brewery so you'd have to imagine it would be fresh. Overall I had 3 beers non of which impressed me in the least. The food was nice though, bbq and they had probably the best baked beans I have ever had in my life.

Located in downtown Battle Creek, Arcadia was our third stop of the day. The interior is British Pub themed and very wide open. The bar in the back is dimly lit and away from the large windows near the front. There was a brick oven and some tables, furniture, etc towards the center. It seemed like there was not very many tables for the amount of open space that was left. Oddly organized space.

We were basically the only people in the place that afternoon and we had a hard time pulling the bartender from his conversations with co-workers. Once we did I ordered a pint of the stout and had a seat at the bar. The selection was certainly lacking. I believe there were only 4 or 5 beers on tap that day. The notable porter that everyone mentioned to us was kicked and we had to settle. Probably my favorite part of the experience was the old bar that was covered in old beer labels; it was at least interesting to look at. I did not order food, partly because I was a bit skeptical about how long it would take and because we had other places to go.

Arcadia wasn't un-enjoyable, but it was probably my least favorite stop on our trip. I regrettably did not try the food, but I suppose I was ready to keep moving after about a half hour. Worth a visit, but don't make a lengthy trip unless it’s on your way. I don't mean to trash the place (I've only had one afternoon experience there) but it isn't somewhere I'm willing to make a special trip to Michigan for.

stopped in for lunch saturday mid afternoon. brewery is located on a desolate, almost vacant downtown street which clearly punctuates battle creek’s current economic woes. brewery/pub is an expansive space: industrial feel but w. lower ceilings, exposed brick oven/kitchen space. service is young, naive, and unprofessional. food is OK. but the bacon wrapped figs w. goat cheese are very tasty. sampled starboard stout, sky high rye, hopmouth double IPA, and loch down, b-craft, and brigid's irish red. in my opinion, the irish red was solid - but the other beers were really lackluster/average.
