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.

Visited on Monday this week while vacationing in Mecosta County the week of the 20th. Bluegrass music was blasting which was a bit distracting.

Quality was solid as the BBA Dragon's Milk was so smooth and easy drinking and the Mad Hatter was solid.

Service was very good. Our server was very quick and actually seemed engaged when i asked her questions about the brews.

Selection was good as there were about 15 or so house brews available.

Food was solid as the Pulled Pork was the best i have had. Da Boss enjoyed her salad and chili. The Goat Cheesecake was awesome as well as the cookie served with it.

Overall a pleasant visit, good beers, pretty servers, and a nice vibe.
