Alot of hype – Cold food and smelly elevator to the Pearl room.
enjoyed this place – i flew out on business and found myself headed to Mc Faddens and honestly i had a great time, the staff was friendly and i was well taken care of... never once did i have issue with anybody there not even a patron, good times and when i return to Grand Rapids i will definitely be going back to Mc Faddens, food is good too!
An embarassing and humiliating experience – This bar embarassed and humiliated me this weekend. For some reason I was singled out and refused service for over half the night after arriving as part of a group that had made special arrangements to come to this bar on a bus from East Lansing. Due to arriving on a bus, I was unable to leave the bar, so I attempted to reason with the condescending and rude manager Mike Vandenberg. Despite being unable to produce a staff member or specific incident that led to my being refused service, he continued to support it. I was NOT INTOXICATED at this time. The only thing I could think of was that I had accidentally knocked over an empty beer bottle with my elbow and then apologized and picked it up. So I guess I wouldn't go to this bar if you're not coordinated or if you ever accidentally bump things. I was treated at all times like a huge inconvenience and had to walk around on eggshells, afraid that I would be asked to leave for a similar arbitrary reason. I had a drink that I paid in the downstairs bar taken away in the upstairs bar and was never compensated. Also there was broken glass and evidence of throwing-up in the bathroom so apparently they do serve some of their customers well past the point of intoxication.
Don't come to this bar, especially if you've paid to be part of a group and are basically trapped there.
This Is Where The Boys Are – There has not been a single Thursday night that I have been to McFaddens and it wasn't full of boys. Upstairs, downstairs, beautiful yummy smelling boys!!
