Got the Nutty burger for takeout. Didn't have time to wait for a table. Upgraded to the Cajun potato wedges for a $1.49. Total out the door was $10.15. No drink for me. Well worth it. The patty was thick. (See photo of my fork beside patty). Peanut butter and bacon a weird combination, but very tasty to say the... More

This place is delicious. Wide variety of choices in the burgers. They have a kids menu that was kid approved with my family. Nice staff and good Location. Food came out in a timely manner and was great. Will be coming back the next time I'm downtown for sure.

This is a popular downtown eatery especially for lunch and breakfast and people really like the breakfasts. I thought it was a bit pricey for the size of the cranberry salad and chili that I had for lunch.

Went here for breakfast and was not disappointed! Must try the homemade blueberry pancakes! Pancakes are pretty ginormous so plan to share

If you are looking for a local eatery that has great food and amazing service [as well as local art on the walls] look no further than the studio grill. The owners are local and often meet and greet those guests as if they were friends coming over for a meal. Not only is everyone so friendly but the food... More

From perfect omelettes and pancakes to every imaginable burger concoction (haven't tried the burger with peanut butter, but hey, there's still time), The Studio Grill gets it right. Vegetarian dishes and salads, too. The owner typically stops by to check with his customers to make sure "everything is just right." Fun, funky atmosphere adds to the pleasure of this eating...

As a Kalamazoo native, it marvels me that I had not been to Studio Grill before. After doing a little bit of research, I discovered that this restaurant sells the #1 burger in Southwest Michigan. Naturally, I had to try it. Upon arrival, the space is relatively small and seats only about 15 parties. We were greeted instantly. For a... More

We stopped for lunch (luckily the crowds had just thinned out, as this is a small place) and shared a Kirby Burger. Excellent! Lots of good choices on the menu.
