Service was a bit slow but food was great, the entertainment made everything all right. The tables were very close together. But we still enjoyed the evening.

We dined on a Saturday night, and the restaurant was very busy. Service was a bit slow, but as busy as it was the waitresses were doing what they could. We have dined here before and the menu is quite varied, and have tried a variety of dishes in the past. However, the mushroom medley pizza caught my eye, so... More

Great food in downtown Grand Rapids! If you are looking for a quaint restaurant that is close enough downtown to be special, but still avoid the crowds, look no further!

If you have a weakness for local, non chain, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere restaurants that also have delicious food from a diverse but simple menu, above average service, and hands on long time family owners then you do not want to miss this wonderful establishment! Our party of 7 ordered a range of menu selections from soup & salads, pizza,... More

We ate outside today on a sunny Sunday while visiting ArtPtize. The food and the service we're very good. We talked with the owner while we viewed art on display at the restaurant. He showed us a very interesting hanging he purchased several years ago because he couldn't part with it when ArtPrize ended. Our lunch was well prepared, nicely... More

Good food, clean and waitstaff was spot on. Did have to make a quick change to my food as the Cook didn't read or remember a food allergy request. I'm positive waitress told them. I saw it in her pad.

We've only been here for lunch. Food is decent. Had a rubin.....it was OK. Bar is also decent. We returned a couple times, most recently about a year ago. Nothing special, but dependable with good wait staff.

I live just up the street but it was my first visit. I googled the menu & was disappointed that the Sunday menu is very small. There seemed to be only one waitress, but she did a pretty good job. I got the house burger. It is basically an olive burger. It was the best I've had in quite awhile.... More

We were looking for a Sunday brunch after church services todsy. The most popular restaurant had a line of people that wrapped around the building. So we ventured off to downtown Grand Rapids to try to find a place to eat. We came across this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Boy were we completely pleased at what... More

I asked the waitress what was "olive sauce" on their One Trick Pony Burger. It is their homemade mayo made with olive oil. What a unique and tasty change to regular mayo. My son had the mushroom burger and loved it too.
