I miss the old menu. My husband ordered a club wrap, and he couldn't eat it. The sauce and chiice of lettuce ruined it, plus the quality of meats was cheap. My buger was fine. Kinda weird choice of cheese for a mushroom buger. Wouldn't order it again. Had cheesecake, but it had no crust. Again weird.

The food was cold the first time it came out, and the second time it came out the good news is only half of it was cold :). They also had extremely minimal choices for food and it was outrageously over priced. Would never go back there for those few food choices that were cold and overpriced!

Great spot to hit before downtown events if you want simple food and great service! We had burgers and the Turkey Wrap. All were good. The fries were the star - two of us had regular fries and one had the sweet potato fries. They were delicious and could have been our meals. They really should think about jumping on the poutine bandwagon as they have the perfect fries for it. Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. We will definitely be going back.

We were disappointed in the menu. Not a lot of options. I’m a vegetarian and my husband doesn’t eat red meat. This is the first time we didn’t find a lot of choices to choose from

Good food for a sports bar including the grilled cheese, appetizers and apple pecan salad. Restaurant was busy and not necessarily staffed for it. Our server seemed to have too many tables and struggled to keep up. Fun place to watch a game though.

Good food and a great atmosphere for watching the big game! Sweet potato fries are a must as well as the apple pecan salad. Dessert is good too! Where else can you go to watch a game where champagne and beer drinkers can both be happy! Would recommend a few additional salad options to go along with the many burgers and sandwiches.

We had reservations for 8 and we were seated at a table for 6. Very noisy but understandable as it was a sports bar. Food was ok but not outstanding. Service was good considering it was very busy.

After making reservation a few days out...I stopped in the day of reservation to confirm everything and make sure table was where we wanted. Then when we arrived for reservation they didn’t have me down and should of made a reservation? They scrambled to set up some tables. I was with my 2 owners and in charge of getting everything set....embarrassing to say the least

I needed to make a reservation for a large table and there were not many options downtown that night. I chose GP Sports because it was across the street from the concert venue we were all going to. Our reservation was for 8 people. Four of the people ordered the same thing, each one got a Caesar salad and then they shared two plates of nachos. Three of the remaining people got almost the same thing, a bacon chicken wrap, but two of them asked for no tomatoes. We all laughed about how easy of an order it was. However, once the food was delivered, the nachos contained chicken, which they had asked for it to be "no chicken" and the two wraps without tomatoes still had tomatoes on them. So, almost half of the food at our table had to be taken back to the kitchen. I appreciate that they were willing to accommodate a large table, but they sat us directly in front of the entrance, so it was impersonal and still a little crowded. A sports bar would not be my first go-to when choosing where to go, but, as I stated above - it was due to proximity to our destination and the ability to reserve for a large group. I would still recommend it if in the future I needed something similar.

Next to Amway Hotel and DeVos Center for performing Arts. Stongly recommend making reservations in advance, especially if there is an event at the DeVos Center. We were there 15 minutes before the lunch crowd around and they were VERY busy! Menu isn't very large, but if you want a burger, it will do the job.

This was the absolute worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. It took 35 minutes to get our drinks. It took 40 minutes to get our food and 4 of us didn’t get our food for another 25 minutes. We had 2 birthdays and one of the birthdays meal was not even put in. The server was absolutely horrible. She was extremely forgetful and unapologetic for the restaurants performance. I would never recommend anyone ever go to this restaurant and I will never go back.

Edit to OP
Gp Sports made it right with our party.

Service was great.
We ordered salads and a pizza.
Pizza arrived before we were even half finished with the salad.
In addition the pizza was cold. Good flavor but I like my pizza hot.

Worst experience ever. This place was very understaffed. We waited for everything and was on a time limit needing to get to a concert. I had to find someone on three different occasions. No service for at least 10 minutes when we arrived..place our drink order and I had to track someone down for that. I even had to chase the waiter down to get the the bill. Bad experience

We called ahead and asked if they could help us with a gender reveal. They were very helpful! The host and waiter took the envelope, gave it to the chef and they brought out a beautiful and delicious dessert with "It's a Girl" written in chocolate syrup. It was simple and sweet. Our little ones loved it! It's a great place for kids because you can hangout in the hotel while waiting for food if your kids are energetic. Thanks!
