Hopcat is one of my favorite places to eat in Grand Rapids.  I had my first drink for my 21st birthday here and their crack fries are phenomenal.  I have introduced many friends to Hopcat and they have forever been converted :)  Well worth a visit if you're ever in the area!  Awesome brews, great food, and an awesome location!

Incredible selection of beers, lots of variety

    • 5.0

If you like beer, you need to go here... end of story. The variety is enough to ensure that you will never get bored and always come back to try something else. The food is also quite good, especially the crack fries! A must-try if you are in the area.

Great beer and food

    • 4.0

This place is one of the best I've ever been to in terms of beer, both draft and bottle. They have an awesome selection of Michigan beers and have some harder to get stuff often. The food is not as amazing as the beer selection, but there are some good choices. The crack fries are particularly good.

 

The location is great and parking isn't terrible. The only downside is that they don't take reservations.

Worth the stop!

My friends and I stopped in here after a show we saw one evening and it was a great decision. This is a pretty notable place in the area and I'd say it lives up to the hype. A large selection of drinks along with some great food.The staff was extremely nice to us and helpful even when my friend spilled her beer. They got her another one free of charge and helped us clean up. The cracked pepper fries with cheese was amazingly good for something that seemed so simple. I'd highly recommend this place. Also, prices are reasonable. What you'd expect.

Beer, beer, and more beer! Burgers too!

Beer, beer, and more beer! Burgers too! The selection is remarkable. Making it very hard to make a choice. Luckily the staff was very kind. They helped us decide what was best for us. Really went out of the way to make us feel welcome. Burgers were on point. So succulent!

286 miles of the 500 miles needed to add to {{insert supercharged fun work car here}}. So glad we finally got to try hopcatgr so we have something to compare to when hopcatd opens Nov '14! Amazing beer selections and CRACK FRIES? Hell.To.The.Yes. But can we talk about these burgers? Does anyone think these brioche buns were too thick and untoasted. Blasphemy! I got the Mushroom Burger that had Porter braised mushrooms, Swiss cheese, haystack onion rings with blue cheese-black pepper mayo. DF's Cowboy Burger had fried poblano peppers with housemade BBQ and cherry smoked bacon. And if you're a creamy Velveeta Mac & Cheese fan you'll like this! gr

I can tell we're gonna be friends.   gr

I love this place! They have a large selection of wonderful craft beers and a good menu to suit. This place can get pretty busy on some nights so don't be surprised. I'd recommend their cracked fries with cheese as an appetizer. It's simply amazing! All and all it's a worthwhile stop with a good atmosphere.

Hopcat in Grand Rapids, MI is an amazing Pub/Brewery. Their beer selection is top notch. A lot of domestic, international, and craft beers are available to choose from and at an affordable price. Even better than that is the food they offer. Amazing wraps (Can't recommend the Black Bean Burrito wrap enough), delicious burgers, and their signature "Crack Fries" will astound and delight any palette. The service is prompt and friendly but if you're going on a weekend be prepared to wait, it's a very popular restaurant and can be busy at times.

I always enjoy my experience when I go to Hopcat. The location is great, the nice is great and so is the food. The burgers that I've had here are amazing, due to the high quality of beef they use. And of course, their 'crack fries' are a Hopcat classic. If you are visiting Grand Rapids, I would definitely recommend trying Hopcat.

HopCat of Grand Rapids is a must for anyone who likes great food and great craft beer. I often dream of their Loaded Crack Fries. They also have one of the best beer lists and are consistently at the top of “Best Bars in Michigan” lists. The atmosphere is laid back and the service is always great. I cannot say enough good things about this Grand Rapids institution.
