Atmosphere: LIVELY Service: GOOD Prices: FAIR Food: NOT SO GOOD Our group arrived at 5pm on a Saturday and found this restaurant busy with lots of smiling customers. The staff was quick & efficient. We ordered and received our food fairly quickly with no mistakes. The appetizers were good. I had a French Dip which had a slightly unconventional flavor... More

I was here with a group of ten women, celebrating the Christmas holiday. We had a great time, and the food was really good. I ordered the special - whitefish - which is a favorite of mine. It was prepared to perfection. I appreciated that it was am ample serving - but not so huge that I was overwhelmed. The... More

I had a great meal with a business colleague. Extensive menu, craft beers. Would go back again when in the area. It's busy, which is always a good sign.

We have always dined here on visits to Kazoo. No more. We were overcharged for our drinks. Bloody Mary's were the Sunday special, $3.00. When we reviewed the bill, which was wrong the first time, we found that were overcharged $2.50 for our three drinks. When a questioned this I was told the special was only good to 5:00 although...

Great location to eat when visiting Kalamazoo College or Western Michigan University. Big seating areas to sit with friends and watch multiple games on TV. Good bar type food. Friendly service. We'll return.

My son and I eat here the first night in town based on other tripadvisor reviews. Started with the shrimp bangers appetizer. Although the shrimp were very tasty with a spicy mango slaw, $9 is a bit high. My son ordered the coconut-mango-curry chicken. There was plenty of chicken on a bed of quinoa. He enjoyed it. I had the... More

Good basic bar food. Service was good. A little strange drinks are in plastic cups! Had pizza, chicken wrap, burger and ckn tenders with appetizers. All were good. Nothing fantastic, but edible and reasonably priced.

We were on a time crunch and asked if it would be possible to be served quickly. They obviously couldn't guarantee it but said they would try. OMG - From order placed to food on the table was 9 minutes. That is stellar service! Now a different time or day of the week may have made a difference but the... More
