We went at 4 pm on a Saturday- packed- both floors. Put our name on the wait list and sat and didn't have to wait long. We went upstairs. Nice- both floors are loud but we were okay with that. 3-4 TVs. Nice menu. I'm a Guinness girl so I tried their nitro that had coconut in it- AWESOME!!! Had... More

Small place but we happened to get a seat at the bar which was cool. Didn't eat there but the nice lady sitting next to us ordered what looked like a type of Stromboli, a steak and cheese, and it smelled and looked FANTASTIC!!! Forgot the name of the stout we had but it was so good, we took home... More

Pizza sampler is a great option to sample all of the great combinations the Mitten has to offer. They have expanded their beer offerings and the ciders are very nice. Sit at the bar and learn a lot from the bartenders. You can also avoid the wait if you can find a spot at the bar.

It seems that many Michigan breweries (and there are many) are mostly located in touristy downtown areas with their hipster throwback chic. This place is in an actual neighborhood and while it is Hipster, it is genuinely so (can you be genuinely Hipster???). Dog-friendly if you eat outside. In October this was a little unusual because they did not have... More

Parking is limited but we arrived just as another couple was leaving so we were able to get a parking spot. The wait staff were friendly; the hostess, bartender, and server. There was historic Detroit Tigers and other baseball memorabilia displayed everywhere and the building itself was interesting. I heard it was an old fire station. The beer & pizza... More

We decided to stop in after reading good reviews on Mitten. We were seated upstairs and the bartender took care of us. We got six samples of beer which were only $1 each. Not bad. We also got the pizza flight were you pick 6 different types of 5" supreme pizzas that they put on a big wooden board. I... More

Went there for the first time last night and has a very good time. The pizza options are unique - and the pizzas themselves are great. We even ordered a gluten free crust, and it was delicious (Mediterranean with chicken). The atmosphere is pretty cool, too. They've done a great job maintaining the look of the original building while also... More

Took a while to get a parking spot but once we got in the pizza and beer were excellent. Try the milk stout if you like a good dark beer. Nice ambiance in an old fire station. Reasonable prices.

This brewing company makes an excellent product - not only craft beer but the food is also very good. They have a number of gourmet pizzas, and if you cannot make up your mind you can get the "pizza flight" and have a serving board with 6 different little pizzas. Fun with a family!

Amazing stop on the Grand Rapids Beer Trail. Beer was delicious, pizza was outstanding and our server DREW was amazing, he told us all about the old firehouse and how generous the business is in giving back to the community. It was the highlight of our trip to Grand Rapids! A must stop if you are in the area or... More
