Diner Reviews
  • "I LOVED the shrimp lobster flatbread entre. I hope they put it on the menu. The kale salad was delicious."

  • "My wife and I had a pleasant dinner at the Thousand Oaks Golf Club Acorn Grille. My wife chose from the "Grand Rapids Restaurant Week" menu and I from the regular menu. Both of us enjoyed our dining experience and would return again."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We went here for restaurant week - but saw other things on the menu and just ordered off the menu (we were not so hungry to eat 3 courses). Started off on the screened porch - there was live music on the deck - so since we were there with friends and couldn't really talk - moved back inside. Perch was great - Meatloaf was great - I think sticking to their regular menu items or their restaurant week menu is a wonderful experience."

  • "New to neighborhood and very close by. Food is very good and great selection. We have been to Acorn Grill a number of times already joined their Frequent Diner Club. As I had received several Open Table Gift Cars through American Express and as reservation was made and reserved under the Open Table reservation sight, the Acorn Grill was not able to process payment off the AMX Gift Card ? Ended up paying via normal AMX card. Do not understand why. Overall very good and would recommend."

  • "Made reservations online for a special dinner. When I arrived, my table had been given away to another group already. When my table was ready, the waitress was not aware of our table. I had to ask for the water cup to be filled whenever it was out. The food was great, but the service and environment was average for the prices on the menu."

  • "Lori is always an excellent server, and I enjoy it when she's assigned to my table. Friendly, but not invasive, and very accommodating. The power went out just after we were seated. This made only 1/2 the kitchen operable. Lori informed us of this and what it meant to what we could and couldn't order. When it doubt, she quickly checked and confirmed the availability of items. Quality was still excellent."

  • "Fine food in a great setting. $5 burger nights on Monday are amazing. Never had a bad meal at this restaurant."

  • "We went for lunch this past Sunday. Great menu with many options. There were 7 in our party and one of maybe four other occupied tables in the restaurant and lunch took 90 minutes!! While the service was very friendly, we waited long periods in between being greeted, getting drinks and having our order taken. I would have understood if the restaurant was busy but it was not!"

  • "The Acorn Grille is a golf club restaurant. The food is decent, and the service is OK, but the reason to dine here is because of the location -- either because you are golfing or because you want to enjoy a lovely view over the links and the nearby hills. Not a place for foodies -- the menu is standard clubhouse fare and not particularly inspiring."

  • "The staff was attentive & the table selection near perfect. All in our party had the lake perch & all agreed that it was superb. It was a very good dining experience & would recommend it without reservation."

  • "We feel lucky to find this great place to bring our family to as well as just the two of us. Food was very good and everyone was very friendly. As busy as it was we felt we were very well taken care of! We brought out of town guests this last visit and they felt the same! Keep of the good work!"

  • "We have enjoyed the Acorn Grille @ Thousand Oaks Golf Club and the nightly specials they offer. It is nice to have a quiet neighborhood dining establishment so you can enjoy your meal AND have a conversation with your friends and family. Kris is our favorite server and goes out of her way to make you feel special each time you dine. The new loyalty card that Thousand Oaks offers is a great new inentive for repeat diners. Suzy is always so kind in assisting us with any special requests we may have for a specific dining spot as well. Keep up the great work and we do appreciate each and every one of you!"

  • "I attended with a small party on their 'burger and beer' night. The food was timely and great. As the evening ended, in spite of offering a very significant tip, we found as the last party in the restaurant that all of the wait staff disappeared. After a noticeable 15 minute or so absence we ushered ourselves out (the closing time of the restaurant was nearing). As we walked through the doors, they automatically closed and locked behind us. Not so much as a "thanks" or "goodbye" or "come again" - nothing....everyone had vanished. As we crossed the outer door we saw the flurry of wait staff activity apparently clearing our table. Not so sure I will return as they certainly displayed their real goal openly, "get the cash and run"."

  • "Attended the Acorn Grill for a special occasion. We ordered two appetizers, soup, salad, and a number of entrees. The spinach artichoke dip was amazing and everyones favorite appetizer. The lobster and crab macaroni was also a table favorite. We look forward to going back."

  • "Enjoyed the evening with another couple. The food was top drawer with many different offerings of the groups in surf, turf and pasta."
    Dined on 12/2/2013
  • "Kris P. is a wonderful server and when asked questions regarding the menu, she knew about all entree's and was very helpful. Beef Medallions were wonderful and cooked to perfection. Pan Seared Scallops were just okay. Puff Pastry that they are served in was a bit chewy (maybe made too far ahead). A bit more of the wild mushroom demi glace would have been nice. We've been going to the Acorn Grille since it's opening (probably have dined over 40 times) and this is the first time we walked out with one person not thrilled with their meal. Would continue to visit our neighborhood "go to" restaurant without a doubt. The only negative thing we have found is a huge draft in the Main dining room can make you uncomfortably cold."

  • "I recently had lunch at this club restaurant with a client. I found the wait staff to be very professional and helpful. The menu had enough of a variety of selections to appeal to all appetites. The tables were spaced in a way that we could conduct personal business without being concerned about privacy."

  • "All ten members found the Acorn restaurant to be a great spot for our book club. We were seated in a side room that allowed good conversation without bothering others. The food was great, from prime rib, crab cakes, salads and chocolate cake to crème brulee. We were talking about returning before we even left!"

  • "Our first visit. Waitress Kriss was patient, efficient and thoroughly attentive to our needs and preferences. I waited until age 72 to order mac 'n' cheese in a restaurant -- a major oversight, if it's always this good. I must also try the meatloaf, and the lake perch, and . . . ."
