This is a place I really want to like but the food just is average. My last meal was a lobster roll and it was mediocre. Beer selection is good and service OK. I’m just not that crazy about the food.

B&P has some of the best burgers in GR! They're always busy, and it's no surprise! Their food and drink selection is second to none! My only complaint is parking, because it is right on Monroe Center, but that's not any fault of the restaurant....More
