We heard about Crane's and planned a stop in Holland just to eat here. The salad and sandwich we had before the longed-for pie were just okay, neither good nor bad. The disappointment arrived with the pie. Homemade? Yes? Better than packaged pie from the...More

Hmm, I'm very surprised to hear this! We very, very seldom get complaints, and I'm wondering what kind of pie you had. Also, as far as the salad and sandwich, again disappointed to hear you didn't enjoy as much as you had anticipated.

Good selection of pies (have never had a bad one), hard serve ice cream, baked fresh daily cider donuts (yum). Have a coupe of coffee, tea, or apple cider to cap off your dinner. Only thing I would suggest is for them to invest in...More

I was so glad to see a Crane's in the City. I don't get to the one in Fennville often - maybe once or twice a year. Their food is just as good and the service is excellent!

This place is small, but they don't need a lot of space for what they do. I've only ever come here for dessert and donuts, but well worth the visit!

Best sandwich ever. Chad and Mary jo only hire the best people who truly know their stuff. Get a plain cider donut and then don’t forget to buy a dozen for three of your closest friends. Downtown delectable eating. One of a kind. Enjoy.

Tulip time in Holland! We stopped in to Cranes to grab a cider donut. The place is cozy, quaint and the baked items are always the best!

Wow if you think you have a family member that makes the best pie you better think again. This restaurant has the best. No matter which one is your favorite they have it. You can buy pies to go as well and bake them yourself....More

Everyone in West Michigan knows that if you want the best apple pie or apple crisp, you go to Crane's in the City. Crane's also has an orchard near Fennville. I always get their apple crisp. It's served warm and with a scoop of ice...More

This restaurant opened July, 2010 in the downtown area. Everything is homemade with local ingredients; desserts made with Michigan fruit. Wonderful!
