About the restaurant
The Heritage is one of the many classroom/laboratory facilities operated by the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education at Grand Rapids Community College. The restaurant is staffed by students in the culinary programs and is under the direct supervision of Chef and Dining Room Professors.

During lunch, your meal will be prepared and served by first year students. The meals represent International Cuisine with modern and classical touches. In the evening, The Heritage reopens to feature a relaxed atmosphere, more Continental Cuisine, and our second year students will serve and prepare your meal.

The Secchia Institute for Culinary Education restaurants and kitchens are classroom settings. We take pride in them. Our students prepare our meals daily with the finest seasonally available ingredients including freshly baked artisan bread.

About the restaurant
Set in a historic 19th-century Victorian, once-turned-local hospital. Now a vibrantly restored dining atmosphere, a wonderfully appointed Bed and Breakfast.

The Kirby Hotel & J. Paul's Dining Room features a fresh, bright menu with something for everyone's taste and price point. Carefully crafted cocktails, an array of award-winning wines, and a culinarily modern, yet classical take on food await your evening. Given multiple awards for its outstanding dining and service.

The staff and Chef LaBelle give a friendly and personable approach to your dining experience. Fresh Locally sourced products are used at their prime. The Prime-aged Prime Rib and Duck dishes are signatures, there are always fresh fish and seafood options as well as vegan and vegetarian options. We cater to all dietary needs.

In the summertime, we offer outdoor seating on our wrap-around porch or our beautifully landscaped back deck overlooking a large pond with a fountain with often-seen wildlife

About the restaurant
Coast 236 takes reservations for tables of 1-6 guests only. Sorry, service animals only.

TABLES CAN ONLY BE HELD FOR 15 MINUTES FROM ORIGINAL RESERVATION TIME.

Every coastline brings with it an air of freshness and wonder, an inspiration in every ebb and flow. Coasts can be recognizable and new … predictably unpredictable in a way that can surprise or delight. But no matter the geography, there is a familiarity and a connection. At Coast 236, the rhythm of familiarity and freshness is our inspiration. Sourcing meaningful ingredients from water and land, we passionately craft approachable coastal inspired fare with unexpected details.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Poquito. Here, our food is more than a culinary experience, It’s also a cultural one. Our tapas are based on the shareable dishes that originated in Spain and then found their way into other Latin cultures and beyond. The plates are small because they’re meant to be eaten communally, creating space for more flavors, conversations, and memories. In true Spanish and Latin American fashion, there’s no need to rush the meal; though we recommend 3-4 dishes per person, they can be ordered all at once or chosen slowly along the way. So gather your friends, and start sampling.

The food was exceptional. This was easily one of the best meals I have ever had. The scallops appetizer was amazing, but then came the steak, lobster mac, and brussels & belly. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves immensely.

About the restaurant
Crazy Horse Steakhouse and Saloon in Holland, Michigan has received the "Best of Michigan" award for 18 years in a row now. While it's obviously a steakhouse, there is so much more at Crazy Horse Steakhouse and Saloon to enjoy. For nearly 25 years, the menu here has also featured ribs, sweet marinated chicken and lots of seafood options.

There are some great sandwiches and burgers at Crazy Horse Steakhouse and Saloon, too. The bacon cheddar burger, boot kicken' bleu burger and Zeek's classic burger are just three specialties worth considering. If you like barbecue, try the big pig. You'll get a plate of slow-cooked pork barbecue piled high on a home-style bun.

My mom recommended Crazy Horse for my husband's birthday and she was not wrong! Fabulous food with great service! Even amongst the bustling we felt we were being cared for. I had the balsamic steak salad while my husband had a new york strip and both were cooked to perfection! Will be coming back!

It was another great RC experience. The service was perfect, the drinks, food (filet and salad) and ambience were great, and everything went as we have come to expect from this outstanding chain. Kudos to all at RC and of course, we’ll be back! Keep up the great work!!
