We had an Austin boy with us and the hut was a good place for him. However, The hut was a little warm. The food was great.

Love the friendly service, love the food and love the outdoor dining. This is our new favorite spot in Muskegon. We’ve tried a number of the items on the menu over several visits but still haven’t ordered a platter because of the price. I do appreciate the canned cocktails coming in a glass with ice. Hope you can keep using the outdoor dining in the winter with a reservation system. Or maybe it’s time to find a bigger location soon?

We reserved a spot outside in the heated huts and it was so fun!! Great staff, atmosphere and the food was incredible. We had people ranging from 12 to 71 at our table and we all loved everything! We might have stolen off each other’s plates!! Can’t wait to go back!!

Awesome BBQ, sides, drinks and service. Take it from a BBQ snob who travels the country searching for the best Q and at home smoke my own - Dr. Rolf's is worth a trip. Ummm!

Great experience! We were excited they accepted reservations and held it on time too. Sat outside in the huts and food was amazing. My wife and I split the 3 meat platter and had food left over. Cornbread waffles were delish and pulled pork was perfect.

We had an amazing experience with our family of six! I emailed to make sure it was ok to have six people in a hut and I was warmly accommodated. We went to celebrate my birthday and it was perfect in every way! The server was excellent and the food very tasty. Nice ending to receive a free birthday waffle and extra utensils to share! Highly recommend Dr. Rolf's!!

We loved our first experience of dining. The only reason the overall experience was rated a 9 instead of a 10 was because we were looking so forward to the outdoor dining. We tried it for 5 minutes, but it was too cold to be enjoyable even with the heater on, so we chose to come inside, and we were graciously accommodated. It was a very cold night, so we understood the difficulty of the temperature. looking forward to outdoor dining in the Spring!

The quality of the food specifically the taste was a 10. We dined outside on a cold evening and sat under a tent. (It did have heaters though so we were warm.) So, I gave Ambiance an 8 which I feel is really good for a tent. The service was good but there were a couple of times we went a while without seeing our server. Again, an 8 not a 3. I have been to Dr. Rolf's four times in the last month since I discovered it sharing my find with friends and family. Everyone loves it. Keep it up guys!
