Question: What’s a gastropub?
Answer: A gastropub is a pub with a focus on serving high-quality food and beverages, often innovating new menu items. At Waverly Stone Gastropub, we serve bar food with global influences for food lovers, using as many house-made ingredients as possible and cooking dishes to order. We also have curated craft beer, wine, and liquor lists.
Question: Does your menu change?
Answer: Yes! With two chefs in the kitchen, we’re always trying new things to surprise and delight our customers. We make regular changes to our menu, adding new items and updating current items according to the season. Our specials also offer regular guests the chance to try something new every time.
Question: Do you have vegetarian and vegan options?
Answer: Yes! We have several menu items that we designed for vegetarians and vegans and even more that can be altered to accommodate your preferences. When you visit, be sure to ask your server about the vegetarian and vegan menus, and let them know your dietary restrictions.
Question: Do you have gluten free options?
Answer: We understand the challenges facing those with food allergies and sensitivities, and we offer a gluten-free menu. Because we are passionate about offering fresh food with high-quality ingredients and cooked to order, our daily kitchen operations may involve shared preparation and cooking areas. We have processes in place to minimize cross contamination including using clean utensils, work surfaces, and gloves when notified of a diner’s allergy. However, even with these practices, we cannot guarantee any item will be completely free of allergens. If you are allergic or highly sensitive to gluten, nuts, shellfish, milk, or other allergens, please advise your server so we can do our best to protect you.

Answer. Owners of Waverly Stone, the Westerlunds, also owned Macatawa Ale Company (MAC).
