Went there for a special night out and was so bad the only thing that made it good was bonding over how bad the meal and service was. From things coming out late, to steaks all being cooked horribly, to the flat out gross scoop of mashed potatoes, really don't have anything good to say about this. Would have been... More

The seven course meal is quite expensive but for a night of splurging we would highly recommend! It did not disappoint! The food was beyond amazing and so tasty!

Sister in law took me here for a late birthday. We got the 4 course meal. I got the Butternut Soup, Lobster Crab Cakes and Carmel Cheesecake. The soup was super good, a little thick. But very creamy. Crabcakes taste good, comes with choice of sides I got the sweet potato, it like eating butter. So smooth with a touch... More

We went to Henderson Castle to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The staff went above and beyond. There was a chilled bottle of champagne, candles and rose petals on the table when we arrived. They had beautiful piano music playing in the background, by an awesome musician (Alexis). We simply addored the matre d, he took the time to talk... More

Table had crumbs on it and wobbled. Portions for the cost were tiny and their description of the courses did not match what was sent to the table.

I do not like to give negative reviews-but have to on this one. "Presentation is everything" in this case it was. The food looked wonderful unfortunately everything was tasteless.We had a "groupon" but even with that it was expensive. We did purchase a bottle of their Henderson Castle red wine--there was good and bad about that also. The good was... More

I was so excited to try the 11-course dinner offered by the Castle but I was so very disappointed by the food, the service and the general ambience of the place. Although we had reservations, we had to stand and wait to even be acknowledged by the hostess for more than 10 minutes. Despite having made reservations weeks in advance,... More

My daughter and I visited the Henderson Castle yesterday, May 12, 2016 and we were thoroughly disappointed in the restaurant. For her 21st birthday, I made a reservation for the "High Tea", wine tasting and tour. First of all the "high tea" menu was NOT what was stated on their website and we were not informed that it could change... More

I have never written a review before, but I feel morally obligated. I got suckered in by a Groupon deal and promises of authentic French cuisine. To begin: the food is not French. That an inn, featuring an onsite French chef and food cooked-to order would need Groupon to lure customers should have been a dead give away. Maybe the... More

Description
Welcome to The Henderson Castle, the most popular inn in Kalamazoo. Whether you're local or coming from Grand Rapids, Detroit, Lansing, South Bend or Chicago, you'll find us to be the best destination for your anniversary, birthday, wedding, graduation or romantic getaway. Situated in the historic West Main Hill neighborhood, you're minutes away from the theatres, shopping and vibrant night life of downtown Kalamazoo, but secluded enough to enjoy a quiet night free from the noise of the city. When you're with us, you'll have a royal experience. Wake up to an incredible breakfast prepared by our French chef François Moyet. Get a massage, facial or manicure in our day spa. Soak in our rooftop hot tub while taking in the best view of downtown Kalamazoo that's available. Stay for dinner at our restaurant and indulge in the finest French food southwest Michigan has to offer. Why settle for a hotel - instead experience luxury fit for a King or Queen. In addition to the inn, restaurant and spa, we offer a banquet hall and ball room that can accomodate ceremonies, corporate meetings, holiday parties, family events, baby showers and more. Our lodging is available per night, for a weekend or could even be arranged for extended stay. Our daily tours, princess tea parties, murder mystery dinner party and high tea are fun things to do in Kalamazoo. If you'd like to book a room, make dinner reservations or just have a question, don't hesitate to contact us. The Henderson Castle Inn is here for every type of guest. Relax in our ADA accessible guest room, the Library Room, featuring an accessible shower with grab bars & handheld shower-head. A ramp wraps around the rear of the Castle and can be accessed by using the Gallery entrance to allow accessibility to the 1st floor. Unfortunately the 2nd and 3rd floors can be accessed by stairs only. While the restaurant is located primarily on the 1st floor, events are sometimes scheduled in the 3rd floor Ballroom.
