When I visit Grand Haven, I was always disappointed with the restaurants. However, today the service and food were outstanding. My server Patrick was as good as you could get in any top notch restaurant. I also met the manager Rob and it was clear that he made everything run smoothly, this is the first time I was impressed with... More

I visited the Grand Seafood and Oyster Bar on 4/19/2017. Had heard some really good things about the place but never really made an effort to visit. What a great surprise!. I only had appetizers but they were excellent. First, I had the Thai soup (Guoi Tiao) and it was some of the best I have had. Noodles were perfect... More

Always a selection of oysters (at least two) in season. Good oysters. Nice to have in this region. Very good rolls - Pete's Cruncy roll is always good. Good bar staff and friendly service.

A good friend suggested the Bar for dinner as we had never eaten there and it was really, really fabulous. Fresh oysters on the half shell as if you were at a restaurant on the coast, a Thai noodle soup as good as one in Bangkok, fresh delicious sushi and the seafood risotto was to die for. Friendly, efficient staff,... More

We are crossing Michigan celebrating my wife's birthday and stop in grand haven. We decided to try grand seafood. My wife enjoyed the catfish. I ate the seafood pasta. The food was good but not spectacular. The service was good. The atmosphere was good for a Wednesday night, there are two additional restaurants connected to this one, with a different... More

Maybe it was because of the bar, but the restaurant was too dark, as far as I am concerned. Other people might like it dark. I think there must be a government regulation regarding the minimum lighting requirement in a restaurant. That is because of sanitary and food safety issues. There was live music by a group of three. It... More

The Grand Seafood and Oyster Bar had a pretty chill environment when we arrived. It was laid back and had a lounge type of feel to it. Unfortunately this was interrupted a bit by the live band that started playing next door. The food is good though and consisted of an asian flare. They have things from sushi/rolls to burgers...

Stopped in for a burger and beer. They have market based beer pricing which seemed high. Server was slow to get to our table after seating. Typical bar food. Burger was tasty not frozen. Old building with tin ceiling. Tvs with sports.

We came with friends for dinner. We ordered sushi for an appetizer which was quite good. Our friends' entrees were good. My husband ordered the catfish with rice and I ordered the catfish with onion rings. When our order arrived we had one order only. The waitress brought us ONE large piece of catfish on a bed of onion rings.... More

Grand haven is a great summer town and this restaurant could be really good, but it is too dark inside. The food was good and the beer selection was decent -- could be better with all the local Michigan beers. It's an old movie theatre with nice ceilings and walls, and could be much better with better lighting.
