Ambiance is great. Wooden cozy feel with some nice artwork and some nice views of the brewing equipment with it not being too in your face.
Service is great. You can go to the bar or someone will come around and help you out. Plus two bars, plus, and thank you Jesus for this one: they have a dedicated space at the bar for walk ups. Why donít other places do this?!?!? Wish they have a waiting system for tables rather than first come first serve... gets a little intense some times.
Selection is amazing both for beer and food. A great mix of prices, styles, and one-offs for the beer. The food menu is mostly sandwiches but there are many different kinds.
See above for details on food. The food is amazingly tastey. The only problem is the bread is sometimes too toasty so it cuts your mouth... first world problems.
Value is great for beer and food. The beers go by the tier system with tier 1 and 2 being priced perfectly at a little less than you would find them outside the brewery. Tier 3 seems a little overpriced.... ok like way overpriced.
Overall this is the place by which all others are judged. Why did I have to start with such an amazing place... now everything else seems lame. I would go out of my way to travel here if I didnít have family in Grand Rapids. Go during the summer so you can also check out the beach. Or maybe during Art Prize... I miss Grand Rapids.... :(

An excellent brewpub with loads of offerings, sound dampening, outside areas with heat lamps, very solid pub grub.

Stopped here on a brewery road trip. The place is huge. The draft selection was awesome, at least 5 beers Iíd never seen and the prices were lower than I expected. The bartenders were very friendly and helpful. We didnít eat here and I think that was a mistake. The food looked and smelled awesome. Defiantly check them out.

Went before/after big "remodel." Love that there are multiple bars now--helps ease any lines for service. Only one food window, still--might have a 5-10 minute wait in line just to order food occasionally, and it wraps around the place. Food options are decent--good bar food. Ambiance is awesome. Not too loud, beirgarten is fantastic (with fire pits for when itís colder).

Gotta visit if you are in GR. Limited food selection, but the beers make it all worth while. A bit of a hipster place, but who cares, the beers are worth it. If you are in town, you must go here.

Founders is a pretty sweet place. Typically it is a little crowded, as in you might not be able to get a table right away. The people that work there are very friendly and helpful. They always have a good selection of beers and specialty beers as well. Their food is limited to sandwiches, but they are some really good sandwiches. Overall this is a great place. They have bands occasionally too so if you like that sorta thing.
