MUSKEGON, MI – Great food, good people. It’s an easy motto to remember and the staff at Getty Street Grill have practiced what they preach for over two decades.
Breakfast, lunch, an early dinner or a piece of delicious homemade pie: whatever you’re in the mood for, owners Ron and Collin Veihl have something for all customers at their downtown Muskegon diner.
For the last 23 years, and counting, Getty Street Grill’s employees come to work each day with a smile, cheek to cheek.
Lindsay Broadbent, the restaurant’s manager, said there’s something special about the service her staff provides at the eatery, located at 1572 S Getty St. in Muskegon.
“I have never loved working at a job as much as I do working here,” Broadbent said. “The customers are the sweetest people. I have a really good relationship with a lot of them. They feel like family.”
Out in the diner each morning, servers can be spotted in any direction delivering one of the restaurant’s popular breakfast dishes: stuffed hash browns.
The meal is a hash brown loaded with cheddar cheese, bacon, ranch on the inside, onions, mushrooms and peppers and prepared with a side of toast ($7.75).
It’s a meal that Broadbent said locals love and out-of-towners must try.
Another hit during breakfast time is the Grill’s three-egg farmer’s omelet filled with American fries along with ham, onions, peppers and served with a side of toast ($8.50).
“We do a lot of teamwork here,” Broadbent said. “Everybody helps everyone, and our customers notice that.”
That teamwork transitions as the crew shifts from breakfast, which can be ordered all day, to lunchtime. A customer favorite, the chicken Waldorf salad, recently returned to the Getty Street Grill menu. The meal is served on a first-come, first-serve basis every Wednesday.
This salad features fresh apples and grapes, topped with chicken and a special dressing ($9.75).
If you have room after your big meal, or want to grab a piece beforehand, Broadbent recommended a slice of the one of the Grill’s homemade cream pies.
“You can get them by the slice or buy an entire buy,” Broadbent said.
Getty Street Grill is open 7 a.m to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays. The restaurant can be reached at (231) 773-6388.
