Excellent selection of drafts with many good flights to support sampling. Great food and service with a pub atmosphere. A bit outside of downtown, but worth finding.

Probably more of a restaurant than a bar, but itís a restaurant with a very outstanding tap list. everything is available in flights also, which is awesome. kind of an odd location, but worth finding.

Final stop on a recent trip to Grand Rapids with nicktbm and our better halves.
Atmosphere: classic and pristine British pub, long wooden bar, numerous comfy booths, tap handles loom over the restaurant area, chalkboard shows all draught and cask offerings, hilarious posters in the washrooms, table-side lamps add a unique touch.
Service: staff seemed a bit withdrawn on this lazy Sunday afternoon but our waitress did a commendable job of describing the beers and everything arrived in reasonable time. She also gave us plenty of privacy in between drinks.
Selection: had an Arcadia Whitsun Wheat Ale with Hibiscus on cask and a North Peak Diabolical IPA out of the bottle. Both beers were in top form and my girlfriend enjoyed her pint of Delirium Tremens. Other standouts were Avery 18th Anniversary Ale, Blue Point Toasted Lager, Ommegang Belgian Saison, and Lagunitas IPA on tap. Very well-rounded menu.
Food: remarkable fare that exceeded our expectations. Ordered the House Salad, Chicken Tikka Masala, Bangalore Quesadilla, and Mackinaw Island Fudge, all of which were phenomenal. Each dish had an immaculate presentation and the free papadum was a nice surprise. They really nail the "England meets India" theme.
Overall: Graydonís is an archetype British pub that I will gladly revisit on future trips to the city. The attention to detail - from the pairing suggestions to the food descriptions to the style classifications on the beer list - is second to none. I highly recommend this bar.

I fell in love with this place right away. Iíd heard Graydonís Crossing had a good beer selection, but I wasnít expecting 48 taps! Good stuff, too. Delirium Tremens, Breckenridge Vanilla Porter, Left Hand Fade to Black, Stone Arrogant Bastard, Lagunitas IPA, and more. By my count, 21 of the taps were Michigan beers. They maintain a very nice bottle selection, too.
The food was more unique than the average bar, with a heavy emphasis on English and Indian dishes, and a good value for the amount on my plate.
itís a quiet setting, designed for good conversation with friends.
The bartender was prompt and courteous, and never left me sitting with an empty glass. I didnít test her beer knowledge, so Iíll give her the benefit of the doubt until my next visit and update this as appropriate.
...and there most certainly will be a next time.

I feel this place is severely underrated. More beer than one could ever dream of, good food, plenty of games for entertainment, sizable beer sampler platters, etc. Our first time here was amazing. Bar staff was exceptional and helpful. The beer and liquor menu was massive. Loved it!

Great little bar. Awesome selection, the food is very bar-oriented, prices are a little high, but still a great place to hop over too if given the opportunity!

Easy to find location notrh of downtown. Clean parking lot next to building. Remodeled building with entrance in the front and bar on left. Tables on the side and back for food. New patio on south side of building. Friendly staff. Good selection of beers on tap. Good upscale lunch menu. I had a sandwich, Very good. Well worth the visit and I will go again.
