The Great Lakes Shipping Company was founded in 1971 and is recognized as one of the finest steak and seafood establishments in Western Michigan. The Shipping Co. is privately owned and holds itself out as being the only restaurant in Grand Rapids that still hand-cuts every steak it serves. The Shipping Co. is located on the corner of Breton and Burton and is accessible from all highways entering the city of Grand Rapids. The restaurant features a nautical theme with brick walls, pictures of Michigan lakeside landmarks and fireplaces that adorn the entire dining area. An ample outside deck and lounge area are available for the lighter side of the menu by which customers can watch their favorite sporting event or enjoy a beautiful summer day. The dining room menu as created by Chef Thomas Verlin is priced from $14.95 to $28.95 for everything from a Sizzler to out finest Filet and features such specialty items as Pan Fried Walleye, Macadamia Nut Orange Roughy, Filet of Beef, New York Strip, and a Chicken Oscar. Separate cocktail service and a tasteful wine cellar are trademarks with both smoking and non-smoking seating areas available. The Shipping Company accepts all major credit cards, suggests reservations, and welcomes anyone who wishes to join us at what has become a dining tradition in the Grand Rapids area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Prime rib was supposed to be rare bur came out medium and was sent back and came back medium rare. Rather than send it back again again, because the rest of the party had already finished their dinners, it wasn't sent back again but really wasn't right and not to then liking of the guest who ordered it.
