    Grand Rapids Restaurants

    Two unique factors make Grand Rapids dining extra special: We're located in the middle of one of the world's best growing regions. And we're home to one of America's finest culinary schools. The result is an astonishing variety of fresh, farm-to-table cuisine for every taste and budget - downtown, around town and along the lakeshore.

    Michigan restaurants are currently permitted to open for indoor dining service beginning February 1 – but limits on capacity and operating hours continue to impact their bottom lines. Many restaurants continue to serve guests through outdoor dining and carryout/delivery service. We encourage you to check with an establishment directly to confirm hours of operation, takeout services, and outdoor dining availability.
