This place deserves only a 2 star because of its location which is a convenience to those of us living in motels like Grand Rapids Inn or America's Best Inn. As for cleanliness and decent morality, it deserves no stars. I am being polite folks. My husband and I tried this place because when it was the Friends Restaurant it was actually a lot better than what it is now. It's a shame they left. First off, no one seated us and it took about ten minutes for them to even realize we were there. There was crusty food sticking to the dishes, no sugar or basic condiments were even at our table. They don't even have all the food listed on the actual menu. Then to top it off, we left in a hurry because our taxi was there because they had taken so long to get our order to us, We only paid for the drinks and it came to $3.46. I gave the waitress a $3 tip which was very polite considering she really only had to get us our drinks. She decided to be deceitful and took a $5 tip for herself. Luckily we were able to get the bank to reverse the charges. But if I were you, I would go to Denny's or Ihops for morning breakfast. These people should be closed down!

Rumors Night Club
The most recent review on YellowPages is from 2010... please take mine into consideration!!!I went to Rumors last night and it was FANTASTIC. Everyone is super friendly, very nice service, and I felt very safe: lots of security, no fights broke out, etc. It was very controlled. I went on a Saturday when it was a suds night (Foam Party) and it was so much fun. Yes, there will be people who dress down, but there will be others who dress up and keep it classy. if you don't enjoy, don't look or simply leave. Everyone is welcome, straight or otherwise. My biggest sore spot is the $10 cover charge for people under drinking age (21). $10 seems like a lot IMHO, but that's my only complaint. :) Love it here, would go back in a heartbeat. Great variety of music, too!

Teazer's Bar & Grill
Before I started eating and drinking @ Teazers I was a lonely geek, I went from spending weekends absorbed into online dating and self-help seminars to actually enjoying my weekends. Wether it is a supremely radical band playing a set, enjoying a totally awesome game of pool, or tearing into one of the many deliciously gnarly menu items, I know when I am at Teazers I am the ruler of my galaxy and there isn't anything that can stop me. The food is always good, the staff is top notch, and the atmosphere is what other bars in town try to manufacture but can't. When I want a break from jumping my motorcycle over fire and/or pools full of sharks, I go to to Teazers.... the best place in Grand Rapids. BOOM!!!

SpeakEZ Lounge
GR has been missing a place like this!It is comfortable, the food is amazing, and the drinks are wonderful.We really like the fact that they have live music once or twice a week. There is such a large talent pool in West Michigan, that it's nice to see "our own" represented. The ambiance is undefined, so if you're looking for a 'Speakeasy', this isn't it. Don't get me wrong, I really love the decor. As I said, it's comfortable. It's a nice blend of rich deep color, dark woods, and classy touches. There are a lot of bars out there, and this really is a step up - a lounge. We appreciate that they are a bit more up-scale (bathroom door signs) and the details show it.

Pub 43
Not sure what this other person is talking about?!? Sounds like another intolerant homophobe who unknowingly walked in to a gay bar. Sad that people are this crude. The Pub offers a laid back experience at a much more affordable price than most spots downtown. This dive offers exceptional service and some wonderful fried food! The staff is bar none! If you go in a few times they will know your name!

I have ordered take out from this place a few times. The food is okay, not poor nor spectacular. My major annoyance is that you are not allowed to substitute soup for their homemade chips or fries. I don't think they are taking a loss by simply offering this option. I hope the management reconsiders this in the future. Until then, they have lost my business.

Buffum Builders
I am currently building a home with Buffum Homes, and the project manager and team has been nothing but helpful! I love the home so far, they are great listeners, and you can truly tell that they care about the people they build for. Definitely feel I can trust them, and am excited to move in in the next few weeks!

This place actually has excellent food and many different options. The service is fast and friendly considering there was only one waitress working the whole place. Its a shame that the owners dont realize if they updated the place and the decor they could probley double their business.

Teazer's Bar & Grill
The food is always awesome, great place for lunch. Happy hour is always a good time, and the evening entertainment usually rocks. Hard to beat the friendly atmosphere. If you're expecting to be waited on like a 5 star restaurant, or your just stuck up....stay home. This is a fun place.
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
