I love this place! It is the best kept secret in Grand Rapids. The food is excellent -my fave is The Godfather pizza. My husband loves their burgers. They have a large selection of Beers on tap, many of our favorite Michigan brews. We have always had great service -friendly and attentive. A good Happy Hour 3-6 -love that it offers half off wine and appetizers!
Absolutely a great place to enjoy a summer evening on their patio. Attentive staff, great food and drinks in a very relaxing atmosphere
Great beer selection, delicious menu and awesome staff! Check out the Bloody Mary bar on the weekend and the huge deck over the summer.
Good place! Decor is beautiful, owners are lovers of books and it shows in its unique library theme. Curious to see how quickly Yelp! Edits out this review. If it doesn’t, I’ll say how the owners are always there, they make bar food from scratch. No it’s not cheap like a chain restaurant, but you’re having a relaxing evening in a beautiful space and supporting a local business. That’s a win for me.
JD Reardons was wonderful! They hosted my graduation dinner this past weekend. They opened the patio early for me and my guests, 20 of us and we had a wonderful time. Even though the weather was questionable that day, the owner came in and made sure the beautiful patio was open and they had staff to accommodate us. My family was very happy with everything and I was surprised to learn that the whole “bar food” menu was made from scratch. Thanks for making my special day wonderful!
Well, we are in Grand Rapids for business and staying at the Marriott downtown. So glad we asked for a recommendation on where to have a few drinks that showcased Michigan beers. This bar was relaxing by the fireplace and had so many Michigan beers on tap I didn’t even know where to start. We weren’t even thinking of eating, but I’ve never been to a bar where everything is handmade, so we tried the shag hai mozzarella stix, which were amazing. Gary was our bartender and he was great in telling us about the special half off pricing and explaining the beers to us.
Great burgers! (Angry Reardon & Aye Carumba are both very tasty). Fantastic selection of Michigan draft craft beer. Out on the outskirts of downtown GR, so you can typically get in on a Friday/Saturday night without a wait. Appealing entrees on the menu beside the burgers, but I’m kind of stuck on the burgers
The food was delicious with fair prices. The atmosphere was great and the staff was very friendly and upbeat, I will go back!
We are frequent patrons to Reardon’s and have always enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, and the unique menu they offer. When family from out of town is here, they often request stopping at Reardon’s as well. Looking forward to this summer and sitting out on the patio.
Interesting venue. Definitely not your typical ho-hum chain atmosphere. Good and creative food and good variety of beer and drinks.
I have visited JD Readon’s several times. Each time I have been impressed with the beer variety and quality. The food I thought of as okay bar food until my last visit. The menu has taken it up several notches. I had the caprisi sandwich. The bun was perfect texture, fresh, delicious. The mozz cheese slices were THICK, and the tomato was full of flavor. The dressing complimented it just right. I noticed a section I had not noticed before. A stuffed chair area. I have mentioned this to friends, and we may be down there to hang out for an evening, soon.
Love coming to JD Reardon’s! They have a great beer selection, and the menu is expansive. I have never been disappointed. The burgers and sandwiches are excellent, as are the appetizers… (I’ve probably tried them all!)
When you’re in the mood to get out and be downtown… this is the place to be. I have never had a problem parking, or getting a table.
