“Staff is wonderful.”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

I scooted in at 5:40pm for the fish tacos. The sign said they close at 6:00 pm so I wasn't sure what reception I would get. The staff was warm, friendly and accommodating. Two more parties came in after I did and were treated in the same manner. Mahi-mahi tacos with beans and rice were a nice change of pace.

“Fantastic pies”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Crane's pies are fantastic! The pastry is wonderful and the fruit very flavorful. We have ours served warm with ice cream! Truly yummy! We also enjoy their sandwiches, but the pies and apple dumplings are the reason we keep going back. The atmosphere with the old brick walls and high ceiling is fun too. Enjoy!

“Great Food! Casual Place”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

We stop at Crane's in the City whenever we are in town. It's consistently great, fun seasonal decor, and in the middle of 8th Street. I usually get the chili ( year round) and my husband loves the pesto panini. Their cider is great too. Don't expect anything formal; very good prices for a mid-day lunch or treat.

“Worth every delicious penny”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

When Crane's in Fennville announced that they were opening a satellite store in Holland many people were thrilled because not everyone had the time to make it to Fennville. Ever since they moved in and started selling their goods it's been a welcome sight for downtown.

Try the apple dumplings or get a few of their pies to take home. It's all worth it!

“A treat for lunch!”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Stopped in for soup and to split a sandwich ~ great little place, food was great, service fantastic. I don't think the soup was really "homemade" as it tasted like everybody else's Broccoli cheddar soup, but the sandwich was very good - HSP - ham, swiss and pesto. Didn't try the pie, but will be sure to do so next time. Cute atmosphere, everyone friendly - a real treat!
