  • The not so happy birthday
    sydsmom01
    Dined on 9/21/2014
    I came in with my immediate family to celebrate my daughter's birthday. I had presents and cupcakes, yet our server never inquired or said anything about if we were celebrating anything, she was very disconnected. I had to send back my entrée and the waitress said that they'd get me a new one. The new entrée never came and I ended up eating french fries only for dinner. The waitress never came back to our table to check on us after bringing our meals and never knew that nobody had brought me my entrée. She came over to ask how we wanted the bills split up and acted surprised when I asked her to take my entrée off the bill. The good food wasn't worth the drive from Portage since I didn't get to eat dinner.

    My friend has raved about Burdick's forever, and I was excited to try it out. Unfortunately, I was not impressed. Apparently, the menu has changed recently and not for the better. My friend said Burdick's had the best prime rib and spinach dip, but both items are no longer available. I ordered the chicken fingers basket as there weren't many options (so many items were beer infused, and not recommended by others). My friend ordered a burger and it was raw. They did replace it with mashed potatoes per her request, and even those were dry and crusty. The worst part though was the service. While our waitress was nice, she was extremely slow and would forget to bring requested items. Overall, I wouldn't recommend Burdick's to anyone.

    It took 15 minutes to receive drinks. The appetizers that we ordered was such a small serving size that we sent it back because it was $13 . We are unsure of what they did to remodel besides new flooring. It looks the same as it always has. Total disappointment.

    Kalamazoo has a great downtown and the Old Burdicks is a great place for any atmosphere you desire. Sit down restaurant for couples or groups, bar scene with multiple large screen TVs for sports, and outdoor seating weather permitting. A very nice menu and drink menu. Full bar and brewery beer available.

    We love this restaurant! They have excellent food and great drink specials. It's our go-to-place for meeting up w/ our friends. It's quiet enough to be able to talk and yet if you want to hang out and watch the game and be in a more festive environment they have their bar area that is separate from the dining.

  • Burdicks birthday dinner
    AprilJoy
    Dined on 3/30/2014
    I had my birthday dinner here with a group of my friends and it was fantastic! We all shared their three course meal deals with an appetizer, two entrees and two desserts. Everything was delicious and delivered in a timely manner. The food presentation that they have at Burdicks is wonderful as well. We had Andrew as our waiter and he was very attentive and didn't rush us when it came to ordering. He even saw that we were celebrating my birthday and delivered one of the best brownie desserts I've had in a while. It was a great atmosphere to linger over drinks after dinner and talk. The only mildly bad thing I have to say was that the tv was a bit loud so if that isn't what you want, then I suggest sitting further away from it.

    I was with a group of 10 and we only had 1 server and she was only 4 days on the job. As expected, our service was extremely slow. When I went out to use the bathroom there were employees just standing around in both the bar and the check-in area. She apologized profusely but there seemed to be no one on duty interested in helping her out. It took us forever to get drinks from the bar and to just have her take our order.

    This review is quite overdue as my experience here actually took place in February 15, 2014. The staff was expecting me and made aware, by Open Table, that I had some difficulty walking and would likely not be able to speak with them. I had the Old Burdick's Club Sandwich (I am not all that adventurous) - mmmm. I observed that staff was kind and attentive but not intrusive for each table. Deciding to try the 'Brownie A La Mode'. I was not prepared for what arrived! It could have served three or four people! It was delicious and I was afraid that my belt would fail as I waddled out.

    The food portions are small and over priced. We were charged for a refill on Iced Tea. My wife's shrimp tacos had "2" small pieces of shrimp in each. My Club sandwich looked like it came from a childrens menu.. We live in Kalamazoo and go downtown frequently. We won't be eating @ Old Burdick's again as, this is the 2nd or third time we have had this experience. Lunch was $60 for 3 adults 1 child. "No alcohol"

    I took my grandchildren to see Santa (of whom we never saw) - It was called "Breakfast with Santa" and he was in a separate room not "mingling" as I had imagined. The food was restricted to a Breakfast Bar which 1/2 of the things we wanted were not ready or available. Certainly don't think it was worth the $29.00 I paid and the experience was not pleasant. I could have taken them somewhere else for breakfast without all the "hype" and had more fun with them. Will never take part in a Burdick's special again and am going to unsubscribe to the notices.

    Made a reservation for 6:45 on a Saturday night. We were sat promptly but the hostess forgot to grab a kids menu for our 6 year old - said she would be right back and never returned. Our waitress took our drink order and we asked for a kids menu, she returned over 10 minutes later with our drinks and still had no kids menu. I ordered guac/salsa/chips for an appetizer and she brought chips and salsa (no guac). We ordered the ribeye to share between my husband and I and it took over 25 minutes to arrive. The steak was decent taste wise, but did not resemble a ribeye and had virtually no marbling. I will say that the waitress seemed apologetic even though we were very patient and understanding.

    I happened to be visiting from Atlanta & decided to go to Burdicks at The Radison! It was lively & fun because there just so happen to be a U of M game going on! We had a blast. It is friendly & sophisticated! Our waitress was AWESOME! Her name was Nadia & she made us laugh the entire night! The food was fresh & tasty, but the menu is a little limited for my taste as a foodie, but I would suggest it to anyone, because there is something for everybody. The price point is pretty cool too! Overall, great experience.

  • Burdicks Bar and Grill
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/8/2013
    Looking on Open Table for local restaurants, we found Burdick's and decided to try it. The menu offered enough variety for the three of us and we each paired something different with a beer of choice. I enjoy a lighter beer and would appreciate some bitterness ratings but, in lieu of that, I asked the waitress. She offered a few suggestions and then came back with an awesome suggestion from the bar. I appreciate a waitress like that (and a barman who got it right). The food was good if not really imaginative. Street parking is a bit of an issue (there is a lot on the next street over, behind the restaurant, and it was a reasonably small charge). We enjoyed the evening, but there is more this restaurant could do to up its game.

    I took my parents and kids to the Superhero brunch on Saturday. We had such a good time last time this was put on. You had a great Wonder Woman and an even better Batman! However, this time Spider-Man was walking around without shoes and a ponytail hanging out (which my 5 year old mentioned he didn't want to take a pic with him). He also mentioned they looked liked $10 costumes from Target. They were wrinkled and just not what we all expected. It was a huge let down. Not sure we will do it again.

    We had a family celebration for a birthday and ultimately were 9 adults and a highchair for seating. The wait staff was very accomodating that our number had changed from the reservations for 8 plus a highchair and quickly added a table. The service was good, food was good also, although one entree was incorrect and one was overcooked and those had to be sent back. We enjoy the location of the restaurant and it is convenient for family coming from both south and north of Kalamazoo to meet for dinner. We would recommend Burdick's to others.

Everyone said, Burdicks and we were not disappointed. The food, the service and the ambiance were perfect. Mike, our server made it fun with his suggestions for drinks, food and dessert. I would highly recommend your restaurant to others and will definitely be back! Thanks!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    My only complaint is that our original table was seated too close to an outside door, which made it very cold whenever that door was opened. We asked to be re-seated, and were; but then we were promptly told we had to move again because the table we were re-seated to was reserved for another party. At that point, there were plenty of other tables for six that the other party could have been seated at, and I did not like being asked to move again. Since when can a party request a particular table? I certainly wasn't given that option when I made my reservation.
