This place reminded me of the almost extinct Supper Club. Great menu choices and the food was excellent. A must stop if in Grand Rapids.

The dining room is comfortable, the cook is experienced and takes great pride in the dishes presented. The overall atmosphere is low key and welcoming. Try anything from the menu, but the Dover is exceptional!
