Best of GR - VOTE NOW

Welcome to the 16th Annual (and the Original) Best of Grand Rapids Readers Poll, the most-trusted source for the best food, drink, entertainment, experiences, shopping and services that Grand Rapids has to offer!

This year, voting will be offered exclusively here at Please note that the ballot closes on September 21st and you may vote only once. The selections from our readers will be revealed in the January 2019 issue of Grand Rapids Magazine.

As always, we are looking for locally-based businesses only, no national chains/franchises. We want the Best of Grand Rapids to represent places that are uniquely Grand Rapids!

For most categories, you will find a pre-populated list of options to vote from, but please do not feel limited to this list! If you don’t see your favorite listed, click ‘other’ at the end of the listed choices to write in your vote!

The ballot verification information that you provide on this page will never be shared with, or sold to, any outside party.

Local businesses: You are welcome to share the link to this page to ask for votes from your fans, but any attempt to cheat/ballot stuff (offering incentives/contests in exchange for votes, for example) will result in disqualification. Remember to use #bestofgr in your posts!

Happy voting!
