At the suggestion of a very dear relative, we tried this place out, and were pleasantly surprised. Yes, there are a lot of screens showing many sporting events and is somewhat noisy, but that is part of the atmosphere and gives it an upbeat feel. There were plenty of older people there (besides us) who were enjoying their meals and... More

Sports bar with outdoor dining, sand beach, lake, lighted volleyball courts, gazillion TV's, 100+ craft beers on tap and the usual bar menu, Burgers, pork, chicken, ribs, salads, pizza, etc. Live entertainment. Oh, Real palm trees, gives a tropical ambience. Food was average but the service was excellent. Great place to go and have a good time. Will be back.

The outdoor atmosphere is fabulous however, I am a regular customer and the table service is always poor. Food takes too long, cold food, server not attentive, wrong orders. On busy weekends the table staff is rude. The bar staff is better with a few bartenders that are very good with seated customers however, the outdoor self service bar is... More

One of the greatest Sports bars anywhere. They have over 100 beers on tap. The draft system is worth the trip just to look at. It's behind a big glass wall. In the summer they bring in tons of sand and palm trees and have an outside bar and seating area in the sand. They have three volleyball courts (... More

With just one night in Grand Rapids we had a lot of options for dinner and drinks. Our local hosts suggested The Score and we appreciated the choice. Almost too many TVs - and they were happy to switch one of them to the MLB game we wanted to watch. The service was pleasant and fast. The food was hot... More

Went for drinks. Ate some fried pickles. Watched the palm trees sway (yes they have them and they are real). Good bands. Volleyball court and lots of sand to walk in. Extensive beer (107) list and some daily specials.

You're at the beach when you dine outside at The Score Restaurant and Sports Bar. There is wonderfully soft sand, palm trees, live music and a view of the water. There are also sand volleyball courts. The night we went, the weather was great and the place was packed. We had about an hour wait, but we got drinks and... More
