First stop for this year's West Mich BA Gathering. A really nice family spot that I bet can turn into a good drinking atmosphere later on at night. Good amount of open space, decent lighting, and a nice little video game, pool area in the back room. About 10 beers to choose from with a few that you won't be able to find in bottles. All their beers seem to be decent to very good nothing terrible and nothing exceptional either. I didnt really like the whole mason jar for glasses thing though. Food is big in size, very well priced, and very good. Most of the people here during this time (around noon) were here for the food and not the beer. A very nice place to eat and drink and then maybe drink some more. I liked it a lot.

Decent selection of beers on tap as well as their beer selection. Food was excellent. Atmosphere was pretty typical for a brew pub. Service was personable and polite.

Will definitely eat there again.

This was my introduction into the world of craft beer. I'm a Hope College graduate and when I was living in Cook Hall these guys were literally on the other side of the road. I enjoyed plenty a stein night here and had my first sour ale as well.

This is my favorite brewery to visit. They have a great selection of beers available only at the pub and the usual suspects. The food it what sends it over the top, great pub fare (meat and cheese tray is a must). And the setting in downtown Holland is great for summer strolls.

I liked the feel of this place. My daughter and I went for a late night dinner. Not too crowded, so we got seated right away. Nice size menu with a variety of items. The only bad part of our experience was our waitress. She was very slow to bring us our drinks. The place wasn't that crowded. I had asked for a second beer when I was halfway thru my dinner. She came back when we were both finished and ask if she could get us anything else. I asked for my other beer. She had completely forgotten about it. My husband came here on another night and thinks he had the same waitress because he had the same issue with his waitress. I would go back.

We stopped in on our way to the UP. We had 3 families and several kids. They accommodated us well. It was hard to see what they had on tap because the menu did not have an up to date list on it. Out of the 5 adults, I think 2 had been happy with their order. The others each had a menu item that had their slaw on it in some way. It was bad and ruined my BBQ sandwich. The waitress said that she thought it was bad and did not know why they still served it. That left me puzzled. the kids menu items are overly small and would not fill a 3 year old. This left the many kids disappointed. Now that I vented, the grown-up bar looked nice. The tap list on the other side (that we did not see) looked great. The place looks great and has a nice vibe. We bought some nice beers at the bottle shop next door. I would like to go back without the family and rock the bar.

Amazing food, add any of the pizzas and the meat plate to your order, you won't be disappointed. Their flights are perfect, the glasses are awesome and come in a cool metal holder. The bar is super chill, even when busy, and everyone is extremely friendly. Go to hatter days and make sure you check out the bloody mary bar the next morning.
