TERRIBLE SERVICE ASSigned waiter had both outdoor and indoor. Waited way too long for everything. Management should be fired. No effort to compensate for delay of actually calling from inside restaurant. WOW Millennium group needs to step it up.

The staff is very professional, pleasant, and accommodating. The food is always good, although my favorite is the sweet potato bisque. The macaroni and cheese varieties never disappoint and the live music which occurs nearly every night is quintessential Kalamazoo.

Our server was very attentive, and service was quick despite a crowded night. There was a silent auction and very good band playing at night. Glad we stopped in here.

We were just stopping by for a quick drink, but ended up staying for a few drinks and food. The waiter was attentive without being overbearing and knew his bar menu to help us pick the right drinks. He swooped in with a refill on...More

Not sure if the Union has a private room. The Wine Loft in Kalamazoo might, and Zazios has a private section that would probably work well.
