I had there 12" club grinder and it was awesome. It was all I could do to finish. They use only fresh meat and vegetables. And yes, it is in the Admiral gas station.
Seriously, this place has the best Grinders around, I love the pizza's, nachos, Creamy Chicken Alfredo and my personal favorite is the Calzones, 'man those are good'. I highly recommend this place. Matt Ploof

Sozo Coffee Roasting

576 N State St
Ionia, 48846
Reviews:
Still ever so fond of Sozo! The more I learn about coffee, the more I love this place. Although I do have to complain that I don't like cheap coffee as well as I used to. Looking forward to all of the updates they're doing on the building in 2014!
I'm from out of state and visiting family here. I've heard a lot of good things about Sozo and finally I get a chance to check it out myself. Well my visit did not disappoint. I was excited to see that they roast their own beans. My drink was made perfectly and the espresso was smooth and not bitter (A +++++)! The owners were working behind the counter and were very friendly. The space is laid out nice and with plenty of outlets, free wi-fi, a mix of tables/chairs and soft-seating. There's also a room for private gatherings. I look forward to visiting at least once more before leaving town.
Love this place good coffee and a quality staff. If you're a coffee junky it may not be the "hippest" place around but it will more than get the job done. My favorite roasts are the "beast from the east" and "the Mexican". Also their cinnamon rolls are phenomenal with a couple other baked goods as options as well. Thumbs up

El Mariachi Mexican Grill

3192 Commerce Ln
Ionia, 48846
Reviews:
The food was was excellent, authentic taste, generous portions, and the food isn't spicy or overpriced anyone could eat here. Wait staff was very nice and very attentive I would highly recommend this place to anyone that wants a little taste of Mexico.
I wanted to give this place 4 stars but I couldn't the red salsa tasted like pizza sauce extremely gross I don't think it's home made, the carne asada tacos were good but the meat tasted old not moist like TJ tacos they need to put some guacamole on them, and what's up with the chips they give you like 5 chips. Now for the good part the green salsa was great the pastor meat was seasoned very well delicious!!!! I liked the rice the beans were good but very dry looking but still good. I would go back for the pastor meat and the green salsa. I plan to go back soon to try other things on their menu if they worked on the salsa taste and carne asada it needs to be moist I would give them 5 stars. I know I said negative things but I think everyone should try this place out they do have great Mexican food.
Wonderful Authentic Mexican food. The owner is rely nice. They offer a lot of gluten free options. The wait staff is young, so they are kinda slow. During the day at lunch they are fast.

The Alibi Bar & Grill

1394 E Riverside Dr
Ionia, 48846
Reviews:
I have eaten breakfast lunch and dinner at the Alibi. Gala and the wait staff are extremely attentive to their guests needs. The food is always fresh and well prepared. The menu is a original, and the taste is delicous. Highly recommended for a quiet evening meal, or the end of the trail from a long day of motorcycling.
A delightful place to eat & drink. Whenever I'm in the Ionia area I make plans to stop by the Alibi. Good food, good drinks, good service & a great value. Ask for Gala tell her Augie sent you!
I used to go here when it was called Gregory's Tavern. Now it has a new owner and a new name, but I can't tell much difference, which for me isn't a problem because I liked it before and I like it now. They have a slightly better on tap selection than Gregory's, but with the craft beer revolution, most places have upgraded their beer offerings in the past few years unless they want to appeal only to people who wear Depends undergarments. The waitress was trying to tell me Gregory's had more of a bar atmosphere and that the Alibi is more of a restaurant, but I tell you, to me it's 95% the same. This is a good small town bar and grill without the superficial trappings of a chain place. Sometimes, even though most chains serve good food, I just can't handle the fake enthusiasm of the staff of such places when I just want a beer and a burger without enduring the formulaic fanfare

Reviews:
Used to be much better for lunch when they had a buffet. They have very good strombolis & I love the Italian sub, but now if you want to get in and out in less than an hour your only ordering option is soup & salad if you're not doing take out.
Love this restaurant the food is great and the people are always so friendly . I'm so glad that they are coming to Portland
Great place , the place was open late on a Sunday in a town with not much, and it was top notch, a menu with a bunch of great choices and they got all the bases covered. The food came out and it all looked and tasty, we were all happy. So glad we found this place with the help from yelp, definitely a good choice.

Lamplight Grill

314 W Main St
Ionia, 48846
Reviews:
Members of my family occasionally meet in Ionia for dinner - it is about the halfway point between East Lansing and Grand Rapids, hometowns for the fam. We decided to try someplace local this time instead of meeting at Applebee's like we usually do. It was a mistake. Seriously bad meals for all 5 diners in our party this evening. Just crummy cold food, very disappointing and a waste of $80. We are going back to Applebee's on our next meet-up. It is consistently good, and way better than this place. UPDATE on 8/18/2014: Upon the initial posting of this review, I was contacted via email by the Lamplighter Grill so they could understand my concerns about our Lamplighter experience. I was really impressed by the effort made by the manager to understand what went wrong. I give them kudos for this proactive effort to correct deficiencies. It speaks well of the business.
The food is not consistent here. The line for the buffet (lunch time during the week) is not set up in an efficient manner. I also think it's overpriced for what it is. I was charged extra for a side salad instead of fries and 2.50 for a drink! The servers are very nice!!
Great food and nice staff! I wish some of the buffet items were labeled. It's kind of dark in there and I'm not always sure what is under the lids.

Pizza Hut

347 Dexter St. N
Ionia, 48846
Reviews:
First ones to come in when they opened. Found the place dirty, tables not washed fully, floors with food on it. Inside looks as if they was aiming at more of a sports bar look then a family eatery. A out side order from a other party came in an got a order of 5 or 6 pizzas as we have been sitting over 30 mins. Note there is no one else that has stopped in to eat here when we was waitting. Last time I go to the Pizza Hut in Ionia.
I must be getting old because I'm running out of tolerance for incompetence, either that or there is so much these days, I'm running out of patience. I eat almost exclusively every meal out (at least once daily) and I never complain nor send my food back, I just suck it up! Tonight I ordered a pizza from Pizza Hut in Ionia. Here is the chain of events: I observed the driver driving up and down my road, even though my light was on and my house number is clearly visible. He was looking at his phone (probably checking his GPS instead of looking at the house numbers). I ran outside in my bare feet and flagged him down. I paid him and then gave him a tip. He never thanked me for the tip and looked at me as though it wasn't enough. I then opened my pizza and find that it was a stuffed crust pizza, not what I ordered. I detest stuff crusted pizza, as I'm "Old School", I want a traditional pizza. I ordered it on line, therefore, I thought I ordered the wrong pizza. I called Pizza Hut; the clerk asked me what was the number on the box. I inspected the box and told her that there was no number. She insisted there was a number and to look on the side and bottom of the box, which I did, to no avail. No number existed. She looked up my order and concurred that they made a mistake and sent the wrong pizza. She said they would have the correct one in 20 minutes. I waited an hour, no pizza. I called back. She said it was on the way. About 5 minutes later I received a call from the delivery boy who was lost and wanted directions to my house. At that time I was over having pizza about 2 hours into the event. I told him to take the pizza back and have his manager call me. Again, to no avail, she never called. After about an hour I called her. I explained the chain of events. She said that she would send me a coupon for a free pizza next time I ordered. I laughed to myself (does she think I'm ever going to order another pizza from Pizza Hut!) I told her never mind I will call the General Manager on Monday. Pizza Huts spends millions of dollars advertising to get customer's. But it's fruitless if they cannot manage their operation (I'm speaking of the Pizza Hut in Ionia). My point is, this is a microcosm of our society. Very poor quality, bad management with adsorbent prices. This was the demise of the auto industry.
