Bobcat Bonnie’s: A New Place to Eat and Drink in Grand Rapids
I always get excited when I hear of new places to check out in Grand Rapids, especially if it's a place where I can get good food and drinks.
A Detroit based restaurant called Bobcat Bonnie's is now open here in West Michigan. They are located at 1968 Breton Road on the southeast side. (The building used to be the home of Houlihan's restaurant.)
According to their website, their mission is "to provide high-quality, inviting service within a clean, fun, and welcoming atmosphere while serving fresh, upscale food at a friendly price. Our goal is to be your neighborhood spot."
It all began in 2015 with the original Bobcat Bonnie's in Corktown, near Detroit. Their building was near the old Tiger Stadium They now also have restaurants in Wyandotte, Ferndale, Ypsilanti, and in Clinton Township.
WOOD TV-8 sat down with owner Matt Buskard earlier this year to talk about the opening of the Grand Rapids location...
The restaurant is known for their brunch. Back in 2019, their Corktown location was selected as one of the 24 Best Brunches in America. It was the only restaurant in Michigan to be mentioned by Thrillist in their search for the Best Brunch.
Buskard is no stranger to the Grand Rapids area. He is originally from Allendale.
Bobcat Bonnie’s Grand Rapids’ current hours are 11 am-10 pm Tuesday & Wednesday, 11 am-11 pm on Thursday & Friday, 4-11 pm on Saturday, and Noon-8 pm on Sunday.
The restaurant is planning to add hours on Mondays and soon will be offering a weekend brunch. I'm looking forward to checking that out!
