Blue Cow is one of the better restaurants in Big Rapids. Easy street parking or lots nearby. Very nice atmosphere and ambiance inside. The staff is very well seasoned and responsive. Full bar and huge wine selection. Reservations are accepted. My wife and I made a reservation to celebrate our anniversary on this particular visit. When we arrived we were greeted quickly from the always friendly staff. We were given a great window table which we really liked and appreciated. Our server was quick in taking our drink order and returned soon after to take our orders. We both ordered the ribeye steak which came with their house potato dish and vegetable. A side salad was added which was fresh, crisp and served quickly and was generous in portion size. The main course was delivered in a timely fashion. This is where the however comes in. The food is normally always of 5 star quality, but fell slightly short on this occasion. The casserole potatoes were only slightly warm and the steak was slightly overdone. A rare miss for this fine establishment. Did not find it necessary to actually complain, as the meal still was quite good. Service was impeccable throughout. If you're in the mood for a fine upscale dinner while in Big Rapids, don't hesitate to visit Blue Cow!
We went here for a lunch after a baby appt. The food was great. Had a lunch menu and all day dinner menu. Which was nice. The prices were fair for the quality of food. The risotto was def amazing. We will be going back. Would like to try the steak. The setting was nice as well. Felt comfortable. Our serve was very nice and friendly food was a bit slow coming out. With an hour before we got the main. But it was one girl serving and she did great in my opinion. 1# thing to try is one of their lemonade. Or refreshes I think they called them. Amazing
Shared the salmon crepes with a friend, they were fine. The risotto that came with them was over cooked and gluey. We also shared a piece of the cheesecake the waitress gushed over and it was also over cooked but not quite to burnt. I guess i expected more from a place considered fine dining. With higher prices i expect better quality food and cooking.
Nice atmosphere, we were seated next to the fireplace. Beautiful decor. The food was better than anticipated. Waitress, Lauren, was spot on. A friend suggested we tried this, did not disappoint ?
My wife and I were in Big Rapids at lunchtime and found the Blue Cow on Google. The online info looked good, so we tried it and are so glad we did! The server was very helpful. Since we had never been there, we had several questions which were answered thoroughly. We asked for a couple recommendations and they were right on the money. The food was fantastic. My wife had the steak salad and loved it. The steak was cooked as she requested, the salad was fresh and had just the right amount of dressing. I'm had a Greek wrap that was delicious. They had a great selection of drinks as well.
Wonderful staff! We walked in from Ferris State?s graduation without reservations and they were more than accommodating with getting us a table! The food was top-notch and the drinks, I cannot rave enough! I especially enjoyed the salmon crepes!! The Mexican and raspberry chocolate martinis were delicioso!! Our graduate had the Moscow Mule and loved it! Anyway, go to The Blue Cow!
Very good, flavorful, and filling food. Great ambience and decent service. Super friendly wait staff. Prices are a little high though Overall, highly recommended
Was staying overnight in Big Rapids and wanted something other than fast food or causal restaurant. Happen to find Blue Cow on google and looked decent. We ordered the ribeye, champagne chicken, penne and the French onion soup. Soup hit the spot since it was cold outside. The champagne chicken was ok, but felt too rich for us. Penne was cooked well and nice taste. The star of the meal was the ribeye. I?ve had steak across the world and also at very high end restaurants and the ribeye at Blue Cow could hold its own. Great flavour and very tender. Will definitely come back to Blue Cow!
