We were great fans of Reds at their old location which, despite a rough start, became one of our favorite restaurants. We dined there 2 days before they shut down for the move to Thousand Oaks and had a very pleasant evening. Last night (July 12, 2016) was our first opportunity to visit the new location and we had high... More

I love ALL the food here. Everything from the salads to hamburgers to pastas is delicious. They add nice little touches like the "attached" paper doily coasters on the water glasses. The wait staff is attentive and helpful(especially the well spoken young man in his 20's). We always have a very good meal here. I hope the restaurant continues to... More

We had lunch at the Acorn Grille on a Saturday in the fall. It was not busy. The server was very knowledgeable about options and ingredients. The food was presented well and was very tasty. There were "specials" for the day, but not unique to lunch. Fairly expensive for lunch unless sticking to traditional lunch items.

Have visited Acorn Grille numerous times in the past and have always been satisfied. On this visit we enjoyed friendly, efficient and knowledgable service from John, tasty dishes (steaks were cooked perfectly) as well as the Fall colors from our windowside table. One disappointment- the bar had just traded out a Seasonal (Pumpkin) Brew for Bud Light!?

Nice place to eat, summer or winter. There is a nice deck with music where you can sit in the summer, overlooking the golf course. Inside during the winter, there is a nice, cozy fireplace. Regardless of the season, the food is always good.

We were looking for a half way point to meet family who live in Kalamazoo and we live in Lansing. After reviewing a variety of options the Acorn Grill at Thousand Oaks Golf had the best price for a brunch in the area plus the ratings of the grill were high. We decide to give it a try. We were...

A small group of us tried AG because of their "$5 Burger/Beer Monday night special. Positives: Nice atmosphere, friendly staff & $5 special. Negatives: Extremely slow service, beer was too cold and burger was decent but tasted you made it your self on your grill without any seasoning. No need to return.

This restaurant is within walking distant to our home. It is our go-to location for great food, at reasonable prices. Service can sometimes be a bit slow depending on how busy they are. The food is always well prepared and tasty. We especially like their salads and often have that for a dinner entree. They have a good wine by... More

My wife and I dined at the Acorn Grille in late December. Previously, I have enjoyed my dining experiences here. Unfortunately, not this time. I will begin with the positives: My wife and I thought that the decor was very nice and appealing. In addition, my wife's broiled walleye with crab was well prepared and very delicious. Also, the homemade... More

Had the Tuna for dinner and my wife had the scallops. Both meals were good and the service was also. We were there on a Tuesday and they were busier than I would have expected. We had a nice seat by the fireplace. The service was good and overall an enjoyable meal.
