Went there on November 2013. The bartender apologized on the small selection at this time. The look of the place is really nice. Unfortunately, because of the time the kitchen was close. So we took one beer and left. We have to comeback.

Had a Sunday night dinner with colleagues here - made reservations but wouldnít have needed them. Very nice draught and bottle list, with different pour sizes offered for the draughts. Server was knowledgeable and helpful without being pushy. Food was very good. Nice little place and worth a stop if in the area. Iíd go again.

The atmosphere is good, very English pub-like with lots of warm dark wood. They have tables and booths and of course a large bar. This was a refreshing change after going to a local brewery with an atmosphere much like a high school cafeteria. The beer selection is very good. They have 48 beers on tap from all over the country and some imports. Regional beers are well represented. Most beers are served in pint glasses with the "big beers" offered in 12 ounce tulips or brandy snifters. Prices are reasonable, mostly $4 to $5 per glass with some as high as $8 when I visited (2/26/11). I particularly appreciate the fact that they have many obscure and hard-to-find beers. The bartender was very attentive. The staff is knowledgeable about the beers as are most of the patrons. All are happy to discuss beers and recommend their favorites. Beer samples are available on a sliding scale price which varies from $2 to $3 per sample. In addition, they have a large selection of bottled beer on hand. I did not eat dinner there but found the appetizers good. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and will stop there whenever I am in the neighborhood.

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 Service: staff seemed a bit withdrawn on this lazy Sunday afternoon but our waitress did a commendable job of describing the beers and everything arrived in reasonable time.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.
