It means cold beer with no pretense, real drinks with booze you can taste, and even a shot with your friends if you're in the mood. It's music you can sing along to & the kind of people who don't mind if you're a little out of tune. So when they ask you, "What is the Grand Rapids Garage Bar & Grill?" Tell em it's real food, real drinks, real people, and no BS. Or just tell em that we "run a good party."

Located in the Boardwalk Condo building, historic site of the world renowned Berkey & Gay Furniture Factory, JD Reardon's is a friendly hideaway for beer and food lovers alike. Offering 24 taps of only the best craft beers from celebrated breweries all over Michigan and the U.S., there is always something to satisfy even the most discriminate beer lover. Our food menu offers pub-style food crafted by hand and elevated to something that surpasses "pub grub" while holding to our pub food roots. JD Reardon's interior is a warm, inviting, relaxing alternative to many downtown bars and the perfect spot to meet with friends or family. We also boast one of the largest outdoor patios in the city with a view of the Boardwalk Condo landscaped courtyard, pool and fountain. Surrounded by five floors of condos, the open air patio takes on an almost resort-like feel.
