Great service!! Very cold! Had to get jacket from car. Would not recommend Gyro. Thinly sliced meet that was crispy. Also steak fries on the menu are not steak fries. Pretzel buns on hamburgers are good. Most redeeming quality is the great service received from waitresses.

Good food and local crafted beer! I have been here a few times. I have never been disappointed. Really good food, BBQ, coneys, soup, flaming cheese. All good! The beer is good too, you can buy it around West Michigan but they always have small batches no available in bottles. Which is in part what I was drinking. A combination... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Sunday. It must have been a busy weekend as they were out of a few menu items. Service & food were good. Just a tip-if you don't love lemon-don't order the chicken lemon soup. They don't skimp on the lemon! My husband & 2 boys ordered it and none were thrilled with it.... More

I love Crankers Brewery. Enjoyed a flight of 6 of their craft beers. Honey Kolsch is my vote. Had a wonderful Planked Salmon dinner also. Not looking for beer or an upscale menu-- head next door for a coney ! Can beat either restaurant.

Service was tops and the IPAs were stellar. The porters were a bit watered-down but I have eggs and sausage with my Professor IPA and, truly a Valhalla of the perfect meal. Great server, always smiling and helpful. I would go back for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Just had a great meal! Service was outstanding! The waitress brought us several samples of beer to try. Relaxing atmosphere made this a memorable night. Hope to make it out this way again.
