My wife loves the sweet pepper crab soup so we make the hour drive once or twice a month to get it.

We were in for dinner tonight and it was pretty busy. I wanted to give a shoutout to our server, Rhys. He did an amazing job, was kind, and made sure we had everything we needed. As a former server, I could tell he was giving his other tables the same great service. Thanks, Rhys!

Only down side is they got ride of the steak fries. But the chili is still the best in the west!

The restaurant was full, but the service was outstanding (thanks, Quinn!). The white chicken chili was outstanding as always, and the blackened salmon was excellent. The wet burrito was very good as well.

We have been wanting to come here ever since they remodeled. The place looks great! Our server was attentive and on top of it. The food was meh at best. We were expecting them to have stepped up the menu with the remodel. It's exactly what I would expect from a small town bar.

Wonderful service, cool old Grand Haven decor and the food was phenomenal! Dad loved his wet burrito and will be back again.My Chimichurri burger is something I'll come back for the next time I am in Michigan. Washed down with a tasty cold Short's lager and I'm a happy man tonight. 😋 I wish that I had taken photos, but it smelled so good, I started in right away. Definitely will take them next visit.

We stopped here on a whim as our day trip came to a close. We got seated right away, despite the fact that the Coast Guard Fest was going on. It’s small, clean and very friendly. Service was prompt professional attentive and helpful. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu items. Because of this I tried the Sweet Pepper Crab Soup and my adult beverage. I had the Creamsicle (adult beverage) and it was absolutely delicious. Very smooth, creamy and I could not taste the alcohol despite the fact that it had 3 shots of vodka. My husband had The Coastie from Grand Armory Brewery in GH. Our waiter told us that a portion of the sale went to memorial fund for a Coast Guard member that had passed . We were more than happy to contribute. I had the Sweet Pepper Crab soup. It is a cream based soup with generous chunks of crab and red pepper. It’s served with a soft French bread slice and crackers. We shared the Traverse City Cherry Salad. It’s loaded with lots of goodies (dried cherries , toasted pecans, feta cheese crumbles, and rings of red onions) and fresh greens. My husband had Applewood Bacon Cheddar Burger. It looked delicious and apparently it was. Our server was prompt with our bill and items were reasonably priced. The food is fresh and high quality. They also have a nice outdoor seating area. It’s off the beaten tourist path and truly a hidden gem to tourists. We will definitely add it to our list of favorite restaurants. We highly recommend!!!

This was only my second time here simply because I always forget that this little gems is tucked in the corner. I brought my parents here to try it out for their first time and they are some picky eaters but loved all their food! Our waitress was speedy and efficient. We never once had an empty glass, nor did we have to ask for refills. She was on it! The food was all delicious, my mom finished her entire sandwhich and I haven't seen that happen in 15 years! Definitely will be returning here more often!
