A beautiful location. With the marina, open waters of the lake emptying into a channel, sailboats with their colorful spinnakers going by, lots of lush and lovely flowers and a green lawn for the wedding itself, things could not be more perfect for a ceremony and reception. Add to that wonderful service, helpful staff, and fabulous food. We couldn't have asked for more. Oh wait--we got it! The price was extremely reasonable, and not one venue we researched could beat what we paid in the end!

My husband and I had our ceremony and the reception at the Piper in early July and it was absolutely wonderful! The ground were gorgeous and were the perfect backdrop to a beautiful ceremony. We had 90% of our guests from out of town and wanted to "wow" them with the venue, which we definitely accomplished.

The reception was great as well. The staff was so attentive and did a great job. The bar tenders were awesome and kept everyone's glasses filled, and most importantly the food was excellent! It far exceeded our expectations. We have been to many weddings, and the food is always terrible; therefore, we honestly weren't expecting much. We were so surprised at the quality and freshness of the food, and had many compliments on how excellent the food was (we served white fish and beef).

My reason for a "3" out of 5 on the responsiveness is that it wasn't always easy to get a hold of the coordinator and there was the occasional delay in email response; however, when she wasn't available, there was always someone to back her up, which was nice!

All in all, it was a perfect night. We are happy that we chose Piper to make our night unforgettable and would highly recommend this venue.

Over the past few years now I have done numerous wedding receptions at the Piper and it is a great location for a wedding reception. The food is always great with a very attentive staff, and not to mention the location of the venue over looking lake macatawa provides great views.

As a professional photographer we feel this is one of the greatest places along the lakeshore to book your event. A very professional staff and a spectacular view. We look forward to working with the Piper Restaurant every year. Ron & Jen Moore Photo Op Studio Holland, MI. 49423

A perfect venue for lakeshore loving couples, The Piper Restaurant is a classy place with wonderful food and exceptional service with a spectacular view of the water through its very large windows. It is a place you and your guests will love. Since it is not only a reception venue but a full service Restaurant you will be sure to revisit this gem for many anniversaries to come!

This is the best place to hold an event and go out to eat! The food is delish with a staff that is professional, courteous, and friendly! The event manager Julie Harkema is wonderful to work with and accommodating with your request for any event you want to hold there. Great view of the marina and atmosphere!
