I love this place, the beer selection is amazing. There are 28 taps that they constantly rotate and there always getting new stuff. Also they will have a tap takeover where they will get a brewery to bring as many different beers as they brew and some special beers as well. Bells, founders, vivant, shorts, dark horse, green bush and many more have already participated. The beer is very reasonably price and it gets better if your a pint club member you get $1 off all taps all day everyday. This is my favorite local place to get a few beers and a bite.

My wife, some friends and I were in town for the Tulip Festival, and we stopped here for something to eat when the festival's 'authentic' food source was too busy for us to get in there. I'm glad we found 8th Street Grille because, not only did they have a special menu for a couple of Dutch food dishes, they also have a great tap list plus a good number of bottled beer offerings.

Our friends are not craft beer drinkers, but my wife and I were very satisfied at the beer choices. (I think it was 28 taps from mostly Michigan breweries.) It was a bonus that I got to choose the 'Pigs in a Blanket' for my 'authentic' meal, so I was happy that some Dutch food was a part of my festival experience. The regular food menu looked quite extensive, and anyone visiting this restaurant should be able to find something to their liking.

We travel to Holland frequently, so now I have a new place to visit when I'm in town again.

I've lived in the Holland / Zeeland area for over 10 years. When we first moved here the beer scene was a little lacking, with the exception really of New Holland Brewery. 8th Street Grill was a decent place to get a burger or 'pub-food' but always lacked a little in the beer with really only 5 or 6 non-memorable beers on draft.

However, about a year ago or so they stepped up the game, now have 26 taps that specialize in micro craft brews and especially Michigan breweries. The food has remained consistent as always, with a good menu and daily specials but somehow my desire to visit has increased dramatically knowing I have a great beer selection to choose from.

They also recently released their Android App which allows me to see in real time what's on draft, this making the decision process easier, which is important when trying to eat out with 2 young kids!

Great place for family meals, or to just hang out with the guys for a pint.

I was back in Holland visiting my folks and we stopped by here for dinner. Tap selection was so much better than I thought it'd be. They have a very aggressive Michigan Craft Beer concept at work, and are working it right. Top class representatives from Founders, Bells, Crooked Tree, Dark Horse as well as some one-off selections from both in and out of state. They also had some very interesting Michigan mead and cider selections that I didn't have a chance to try. Prices are 4-6 a pint for most items, and I had a Bells Hopslam for 5.50. That is great value for one of the best beers on the planet.

Food was solid, if unexceptional. Not bad, but not as solid as the craft beer offerings.

I was very, very happy with what I saw here, and look forward to coming back next time I'm visiting the family.
