I can understand why this place has such a high rating. I can hardly say a bad thing about it, other than that itís too popular (and therefore crowded). Good value for beer on tap, though the bottle collection is a little pricey. Very cool that you can get any of the bottles to go (though theyíd be very overpriced compared to a bottle store). Extremely friendly staff - top notch! Food was pretty good, though not the absolute best. Wonderful atmosphere - a big collection of trophy beer bottles all over. And then thereís the selection: 49 beers on tap, 150 bottles, just great.

A nice long bar with all sorts of seating options. Service was pretty decent, but nothing spectacular. Selection was large, but after only a couple I found it hard to find anything interesting. Food is pretty good and hearty pub/burger fare. I can understand the popularity, but now with so many good options, it just isnít that unique.

Stopped in on a cold Thursday mid afternoon. Had to park a couple blocks away at a meter. The place was very busy. Only one table was available and it still had the last visitors remnants on it. Needless to say, service was pretty slow. Our waiter seemed good, but was overloaded. It took a long time to get a beer, but the fries we ordered came right out. Prices on most beers seemed overly inflated. The crack fries were good. All in all, donít think I would want to come here again on a busy day.

Stop #3. Really awesome looking place. It was a bit crowded but we got a table quickly. Great selection of bottles and taps. Food was really damn good, and they had good music and a nice lively atmosphere.

This review is for the Grand Rapids Hopcat. This is a good place. Good ambience, good beer selection and good food. A fun place, nice physical plant in an old GR factory. A complete package. Canít wait until they open their Ann Arbor location.

Cool spot. Big, open room that looks kind of like an industrial church. Big selection of beers plus 5 of their own brews. Food was awesome as well. Definitely hit this place up.

Oh goodness. Certainly on the very short list of best craft beer bars in America. Terrific draft list with a strong regional emphasis. Lots of rarities. Loaded with character. Helpful staff. Feels like home. The food could use a wee bit of an upgrade (itís typical bar foody bar food), but... meh. Still great.

Awesome tap list, awesome bottle list (expensive), awesome menu. Sometimes a pain in the ass to get a table, especially during busy times & on the weekends. But worth the effort. Get the "Grand Royal" if youíre hungry. Itís a sloppy joe literally covered in thick, cheesy beer sauce. I donít mean the meat, the ENTIRE sandwich is covered in it. Service has varied from acceptable to good, I think it depends on how busy they are. All in all, a must-stop if youíre in Grand Rapids.

Cool place in downtown area with easy parking nearby. Sat at the bar on a Wednesday night, probably found the last seat in the place. Fast, helpful service. Great beer selection and served well. Good food - crack fries were awesome. A little pricy but otherwise a nice place. Would go back.

On November 2013, the place was crowded, service was slow, the selection was nice but a bit pricy. Every time someone was getting out or in we were freezing big time, so we move further near the bar and there we were losing an once of our precious liquid every time some one was passing by. So we went somewhere else.
