I went to a private party at the Bull's Head Tavern. The staff did a great job of making sure everyone was happy. The venue is very comfortable, lots of wood like an old time tavern. I would highly recommend.

Bull's Head is a wonderful downtown place - good food, great for lunch. Good food for value and a wide selection of options on the menu. Ambiance is nice, and drinks are reasonably priced. Very busy and very popular. Great taste of Grand Rapids!
