Went here for a work function and had a group of twenty. Had the sirloin which was ok and broccoli was not totally done. Had mussels for appetizer which was very good.

Perhaps my expectations were set too high, but the first four attempts at ordering a cocktail were met with "we are missing X, Y or Z". Once we stuck to simple drinks like beer or wine, all was OK. Nice interior and friendly service staff.

We were staying at the Amway Hotel across the street for a convention. It also happened to be our anniversary. We ordered the tomato bruschetta with little slivers of almonds. It was delicious! Since prime rib was the feature for Friday night, we ordered that along with broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes. It was simply divine! haven't had prime rib... More

I really enjoyed the food here. Even though it was busy on a Friday evening I never felt rushed or unable to carry on a conversation. It seems to be a very popular bar/restaurant. I would go back here again.

We have been coming here for years. Every time we go to an event at Devos it is our first choice. The food and service have always been good to excellent. But after tonight, we will not be able to return or recommend it. Four people waited 1 hour for food. Yes there was a large party ahead of us,... More

Wine list was decent but was expecting more red wine glass options. Service pretty good but was expecting specials or recommendations. Appetizers out of this world delicious: trout dip and bruschetta. Pork chops entree great portion size but taste of pork itself was average. Would definitely come back.

Two others had a wrap and they had to take home half there was so much food. Two others had the club sandwich which... More

This is my go-to bar/restaurant when I travel on business in Grand Rapids. The food is great, everything I have ever ordered has been wonderful. Service is good. I travel solo and have sat in the bar area and restaurant. From salads to soup- all great. Wonderful pork chop and greek salad. If you want a nice dinner that wont... More
