We love to eat here because of homey atmosphere and kind attentive
staff. Food is so so and concentrates on ribs and beef, not much here for vegetarian
minded folks which is to its negative.

We had eaten at the Steakhouse several times over a 20 year period, but had not returned during the past few years. About mid afternoon, I went online to read the menu. Sounded great as always.

Two of us ordered the small sirloin and broiled walleye. The walleye was very good, but the steak was tough and tasteless. If that cut was actually sirloin, I would be amazed.

Perhaps this is what has become of one of the reliable "go to" restaurants in Grand Rapids, but I prefer to think not. I'm always willing to grant a restaurant an off night. On the other hand, it will be a while before I will return to check out that possibility.

I might add that our server, David, was great. Thoroughly enjoyed hearing about his educational pursuits, and his presence was very professional.

Great place to stop! Enjoyed a nice lunch both times we stopped there while passing thru the area.
Waitresses and receptionist very accommodating and pleasant. Food was good as well as the decor.
One criticism would be for them to update their men's bathroom a bit.
Restaurant was busy as others must find this place a great place to eat.
Overall, would recommend as good place to stop.
