Review of The Red Geranium

The Red Geranium
Ranked #50 of 996 Restaurants in Grand Rapids
Description: The Red Geranium Café is one of 16 restaurants owned and operated by local restaurateur Jeff Lobdell. The original location was on Michigan St. in beautiful downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. Responding to a growing demand in local flavor, Red Geranium soon expanded south to the Wyoming and Kentwood areas. We pride ourselves on our delicious food made from only the freshest ingredients daily. Stop in and see what the local chatter is all about!

great place to stop in and grab some really good food. This place is always very busy but there never seems to really be any sort of wait. Would highly recommend it.

We occasionally eat at the Red Geranium. We've had excellent food and service, especially lunch. When you get a burger which is great, you get a mountain of fries. But for an Eggs Benedict lover like myself, someone needs to help them out a bit! First of all, toast the English muffin, please! The ham was good but, and here's the kicker, poach the eggs, not fried over easy!!! The beauty of and Eggs Benedict is the velvety yoke when poached properly. Disappointing to say the least! So my words of advice, order anything but the EB, because everything else I've had there was great!

Stopped in with a friend of mine--had never been in as it is in a weird strip mall location. However, I WILL BE BACK. Had a phenomenal breakfast. Huge portions. Great prices. Great options. Family-friendly. Service was great--even for it being as busy as it was. Would love to return during warmer months just to sit outside, but again, it's in a strip mall so I'd be overlooking a parking lot.... Hmmmm... But give it a try. You won't regret it!!

Portions are huge and they continuously refill the coffee. Haven't had a bad breakfast here yet. Would be perfect if not for the bathrooms.

Icame to this restaurant with a coworker for a early lunch. Place was packed and we had a group of 10..Service was immediate and friendly, portions were more than enough to get you full. Definitely will be returning soon.
