Wonderful Beards used to be a tiny brewery down an alley with a small taco bar. Recently they opened in a large once busy restaurant. Have been there a few times. Beer great and lunches good, fish and chips, sandwiches. Recent went with wife and friends. I had Pho. Very good. Friend said better than in any Vietnamese restaurant he had been to. Pizza was wonderful. Used to think it was beer and snacks. Go for food first Emmet county has three breweries all with good food and beer

Thank Richard S

A large space, great menu, and several types of artisanal draft beer, served to perfection. If you are looking for great moment, this is the right place.

Beards has done a good job on renovating an old and dated restaurant. Opened it up and added an upper floor to take advantage of the view. They are still working on the exterior and adding an outside patio. There is a proliferation of breweries and it will take more than a building re-do to outlast the competition. Service was ok, not outstanding. Large selection of beers and my companion enjoyed them. The food however needs a lot of work. Almost every selection was covered in some type of Fustinis Oil and or Vinegar. It was difficult to taste the underlying meat. The pork in my sandwich was good, but after scraping away the over seasoned slaw, there wasn't much left. The new way to serve food seems to be on sheet pans and Beards jumped on the bandwagon. Not my favorite as I find it very awkward and messy. I'm hoping they settle in, work out the kinks and improve the food and service. Will give them another try.

Stopped by this place as sort of a hit and run on a flight of beers while passing through. Had few IPAs that were really good. The building looked very new and the service was excellent. Didn't try the food as I did not have time but would like to stop here again some day.

Great casual atmosphere, honest staff, great selection of beer, and the French fries were some of the best I've had!
