Description: Our menu reflects classic English dishes that have been influenced by the days of the British colonies in India; where colonists learned to appreciate the many spices and curries that soon worked their way back to England and onto the supper tables. So sit back, relax, have a pint and prepare to experience a menu for which the Brits would gladly cross the Atlantic!We have a main floor with a bar that is first come first serve seating and we also have an upstairs dining room that takes reservations Wednesdays through Saturdays. We have a large outdoor deck on the ground floor and a small balcony deck on the upper floor that each offer seating for dining.Saturday and Sunday we open at 10am for Brunch which is served until 3pm.Every month we have a new monthly menu on top of our everyday core menu. We also offer Daily Soups, Daily Chef Specials and a Dessert!Every month we host a beer and food pairing dinner; 39 seats available for $35/person, 5 courses all focused on one brewery!!!!

Honestly, we just stumbled into Graydon's Crossing with no foreknowledge or preconceptions. We were speeding from Mackinaw City to Chicago and queried Google for some drive-by lunch suggestions... and this place was only two minutes off the Interstate. Worth getting off the four-lane? Suffice it to say we'd come back to Grand Rapids just for another meal at Graydon's Crossing. The menu is a whimsical, quasi-throwback English-Indian swirl. The chef's specials that day included a sausage, kale, and wild rice soup I still think about... and a fresh, complex-seasoned, bounteous fresh fish sandwich that was the highlight of the whole roadtrip. The tap lineup is gorgeous in itself, with a smartly curated mix of Empire ales and brews and local craft product, and the darkly-wooded interior atmosphere puts you in mind of a London pub. Top marks for setting, imaginative food and drink, and welcoming service. We're envious of Grand Rapids!

I love visiting Graydon's Crossing in the Creston Neighborhood. The customer service is excellent and weekend brunch is a satisfying experience. The house made Bloody Mary is spicy and flavorful. Breakfast selections are unique. I had the Shirred eggs, grilled asparagus and toast with strawberry jalapeño jam. Very tasty! My friend had the Graydon's special with scrambled eggs, beer bacon, sausage, potatoes and toast. Huge portions and flavorful. I recommend the White Sangria. Very refreshing! My only negative comment...I miss the potato pancakes! Why did you drop these from the menu? Please bring them back!

We are locals in area. Our second time patronizing Graydon's Crossing. We sat at bar to order lunch and received terrible service. Female bartender too busy selling festival tickets and first waited on people who wanted to purchase drink tickets. Shame on owner of establishment not to have staffed properly for a neighborhood event and ignoring restaurants customers! We had a poor experience at Graydon's Crossing restaurant/bar and as locals will patronize the other establishments in the local area.

Haven't been to Graydon's in a year or so. My wife and I hit them up on a Thursday. They had a brisket taco special we tried...which may have been called overcooked roast beef tacos. You know - the kind that basically just all gets stuck in your teeth. It was rough. We have previously loved their fish tacos - but they were pretty darn hot. This new recipe - just bad. The nachos remain killer though. Nachos and beer there and you can't go wrong.

Graydon's has become a regular stop for our family. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. The menu contains creative dishes that are delicious. Highly recommend it.
