Ambiance is like a fast food joint and the pork dishes were horrid.

Broasted chicken is awesome; have had that in the past as well, this is by far their best item on the menu. Tried the pulled pork for the first time, not bad, but didn't float my boat. I personally didn't like the spare ribs, seemed chewy and way way way too much sauce; plus the sauce was so spicy it overpowered any meat flavor.

They were out of the beer I wanted, the main entree I wanted and one if the sides I wanted. They also had no desserts available.

Great Beer !! Grand Rapids embraces good beer! Really need to make it more like a true Brew Pub! The choice to go into a old fast food place and the location is not good. Would love to see this place succeed put you need to get into a better location ( and create an environement people will drink - a true bar). Love the place up in Big Rapids ! Good luck - leverage the good beer you have - GR is with you.

From Our Editors

January 30, 2013 was a big milestone for the team at Cranker's Restaurant & Brewery. The date marked the release of their first-ever bourbon-barrel-aged beer, appropriately titled the Barrel #1 Bourbon Porter. But Cranker's taps were no strangers to innovative beer or the high-pitched squeals of happy pint glasses. The brewery had already racked up awards at the World Expo of Beer for their Professor IPA, Crankenstein Amber Lager, 5th Voyage Coconut Porter, and Honey Kolsch.

That last brew, the Honey Kolsch, is the beer of choice when ordering a basket of Cranker's fish and chips with homemade tartar sauce. Indeed, the bartenders and servers are always happy to make beer-pairing suggestions for their homey entrees. For Detroit-style coney dogs, for instance, they recommend their Bulldog Red Irish Ale. Or if diners show up early, they pour Oakenshield Stout to go with eggs, sausage, and other breakfast staples. They also have the perfect substitute should diners want a less potent beverage: a cool glass of homemade root beer, either served by itself or as a float.
