Mediocre breakfast accompanied by offers of free bibles and Fox News blasting from every TV monitor. Great atmosphere for some; not so much for others. I prefer my dining experience to be free from religious/political commentary regardless of the persuasion. I won't be back.

Biggby Coffee

Reviewed By rjrjj - Hudsonville, Michigan

Biggby's coffee beans are really delicious, so try a regular cup of coffee once in a while! Tip: If you are going to order the fancy coffee drinks, look for the BOGO coupons -- they come often in emails and in local flyers! Delicious coffee, always perfect!

Love the ice cream. Disappointed in the service the last two times I was there. Usually the staff are very pleasant and quick. the last time I was there, I left without getting my order. No one in sight to fill my order, waited approximately 5 min or more at window,

Main St. Pub

Reviewed By 5motozickis - Allendale, Michigan

The food is nothing special. It's your generic Gordon's Food Service bulk delivery food that is simply portioned and warmed up. Tried it a couple of times because it's local but left each time feeling like we can get much better locally for the same price.

The smoked Turkey and Swiss sandwich is so. good. I like that there are healthy meal options. The tea is delicious, of course. Sometimes the cashiers are unsure of themselves so they aren't the most helpful and it can be kind of awkward/uncomfortable, but hey, it's all good.

Peppino's Pizza

Reviewed By tcresidentTc - TC

A very average sports bar, but they do have a good supply of TV's and can find games. However, a disengage wait staff and bar staff is pretty lame. Waitress's have very little interest in you and/or their service. Not much smiling, just 'do-in' their jobs. Food was pretty greasy and you will wait for drinks. Lots of time for wait staff to chit-chat with one another, but very little time spent on serving customers.

Aroy Thai

Reviewed By Gary F

Those who enjoy Thai and oriental food will love Aroy Thai, and people who haven't tried it need to start here. With a varied menu of dishes from savory to spicy, this restaurant will teach you what umami is all about - or take your tongue and perhaps your memories right to Bangkok. Prices are very reasonable, service is excellent, but most of all the food is far above the usual take-out restaurant. Dining available both in and out.

El Aztecas

Reviewed By Carol K - Allendale, Michigan

It took an hour and fifteen minutes to even get our food, and even then they brought the wrong food. On too of that they charged us for the more expensive item they brought instead of the one I ordered. It's expensive for the food you get. I live in Allendale and will NOT be going back. It's worth the drive to go somewhere better.

Our family goes to Get The Scoop often in the summer. It has indoor and outdoor seating. I like this ice cream place better than any other ice cream place in Allendale. They have hard and soft ice cream. I normally get their flurries. The reason I rated it Very Good instead of Excellent is because I think their arrangement indoors is kind of awkward. After you order, there isn't a good place to stand and wait for your ice cream, so you stand in the way of the other people in line who are trying to order. Other than that, I don't have any complaints.

The morning after a night out with friends in GR we went to Grand Coney for breakfast because we heard it was the best place around for breakfast. I was surprised once we got there how minimal the breakfast menu was. The food was good and the service was decent, at a decent price. It wasn't bad, but nothing special.
