We shared the Heirloom and Burrata Salad and it was excellent! Once again, had the scallops for our entrees and they were delicious as always…maybe even better than usual. Great experience and will be back!

We love making our food from scratch. We could not do it without our local farmers! Fun atmosphere, upscale cuisine, craft cocktails and local artist gallery as decor.

I just spent a week in Washington, DC eating at some really nice and fantastic restaurants, came home to have dinner with the husband and chose TPK. The meal was spectacular and service exceptional, rivaling any of the “hot” new eateries of the last week.

The original HopCat location is located in a historical building downtown Grand Rapids. Steps from Van Andel Arena, GLC Live at 20 Monroe, and the Grand Rapids Art Museum, our restaurant features a dog-friendly outdoor patio, oversized wooden bar, and comfortable seating.

HopCat was founded on the principles of bringing local craft beer a bit closer to the communities we love.

From burgers to tacos, our menu offers a range of delicious options.

We live the craft lifestyle - beer, cocktails, and even craft food made from scratch. With a dedication to local breweries sustainability and community engagement, HopCat offers craft beer and great food in a vibrant atmosphere for an inclusive, unforgettable experience.

No matter who you are or where you come from, you're always welcome in our community.

About the restaurant
Time counts at BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we’ve continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ’s a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ’s to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we’ve put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven’t just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it’s because of them we’re continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ’s, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.

Always wonderful food. Their Italian food additions are delicious, but the New York Strip & mashed potatoes is always a favorite!

About the restaurant
Experience the brand new version of the Wild Dog in 2024! A downtown fixture is under new ownership with a fresh and exciting look and taste. Expect expertly crafted dishes influenced by Executive Chef Rachael Lickteig's extensive experience with Mediterranean cuisine. A warm and inviting atmosphere makes this a great place to enjoy tastes of Italy, Greece, Spain and Portugal right here in Douglas. Great effort is put into the cocktails, wine list and draft beer selection to complement the food.

Great new place to eat in town! I had been there once before with a group of friends, and was so impressed by the food and service that I decided to bring my wife there for date night. The hostess had us seated immediately when we arrived, and the waiter Ari was attentive and really friendly. They have a wide variety of foods to choose from, so no matter what kind of food you like, they’re bound to have something you’ll love. Highly recommend this place!
