We actually walked out before sampling the food or beer. Very unfriendly staff who couldn't be bothered to welcome us. It's real hard to tell where the food is being made, so the menu wasn't very appetizing. The beer we wanted to try wasn't on...More

This was our second visit to Boatyard. The owners are great guys, very fun, and they seem to enjoy interacting with their guests (unlike other breweries in the area). The beer is phenominal ! Cannot wait to visit again !

Boatyard was our third stop on our West Michigan Beer Tour. We were greeted at the door with a beer and Michael gave us a brief brewery tour. We enjoyed the popcorn and getting such a great variety of beer samples!
