The Top 21 Michigan restaurants to visit in 2021

154 min read

We know.

Dining rooms in Michigan restaurants aren’t open right now because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

But some day, things will change. The sooner the better.

That’s why Michigan’s Best decided to compile a list of the Top 21 restaurants to visit in Michigan in 2021. You might not be able to use it right now, but hopefully better days are around the corner for all these hard-working owners and employees.

This year’s Top 21 features a little bit of everything that Michigan has to offer. From pizza to burgers to fine dining, and from Houghton in the Upper Peninsula to St. Joseph, Detroit, Bay City and Grand Rapids, we give you some of the state’s best.

Most of these restaurants are doing take-out right now. Some are seasonal. And a few are closed for now, awaiting the reopening of dining rooms.

Over the weekend, my Michigan’s Best colleague Amy Sherman released her list of favorite things to eat in 2021. It made me so hungry! Check out it out. It’s a great list.

Now, let’s get to my list.

Top 21 Michigan restaurants to visit in 2021

The Inn at Harbor Shores is home to a championship golf course, a hotel, and Plank’s Waterfront Restaurant, all located along the shores of the St. Joseph river.

Michigan's Best Day in St. Joseph

Enjoy the waterfront view, and the whitefish at Plank’s, located at the Inn at Harbor Shores.

Plank’s Tavern on the Water

One of the joys of 2020 was getting to spend some time in Benton Harbor and St. Joseph. We filmed a Michigan’s Best Day video, and we visited many familiar places like Lark’s BBQ, North Pier Brewing Company and 12 Corners Winery. But we also filmed at Plank’s Tavern on the Water, located at the Inn at Harbor Shores. It’s right on the St. Joseph River where we paddled on the Harbor Hopper Cycleboat, operated by Southwest Michigan Cycleboat. You can propel yourself on a two-hour cruise down the river with your own food and drinks. After the tour we had dinner on the patio at Plank’s overlooking the river. The service was attentive, the drinks fun and creative, and the food spectacular with pan-fried whitefish made to a flakey goodness. It would be a great weekend getaway. The Inn offers 92 luxury guest rooms, a full service spa, and both indoor and outdoor pools. And a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course.

MeXo Tequila & Mezcal Bar and Restaurant

When we did the search for Michigan’s Best Mexican Restaurant in early 2018, MeXo had just opened in downtown Grand Rapids so we didn’t get a chance to stop in. It’s a “pre-Hispanic” restaurant, meaning that ingredients and popular dishes all date back to a time before the Spanish conquered Mexico in the 1500s. Everything is homemade and fresh, and they use ingredients partially sourced in their own greenhouses. Since we did not visit, Chef Oscar Moreno has invited us several times to come and experience their truly unique experience. I finally stopped there in late October for tacos and appetizers with a friend. On that day, Chef Oscar told me he was excited to launch his Weekend Brunch, which didn’t get a chance to fully take off because of the second shutdown. Even though I didn’t spend much time there, I was impressed with his huge flavors, authentic homemade corn tortillas and the Baja fish tacos. They are Mexican beer-battered mahi-mahi tacos topped with a variety of salsas. We also tried the Pulpo Ceviche with grilled octopus. I can’t wait to return and get the full experience, including a fight of Mezcal.

Daddy Pete’s BBQ

Owners Cory and Tarra Davis make a wonderful team. Heck, they met at church, which somehow means their destined to be blessed with good fortune. Their business has just taken off. We first met them a few years ago when their food truck was in downtown Grand Rapids for ArtPrize. And again on our search for Michigan’s Best BBQ. They offer a great variety of meats and sides, including lip-smacking-good BBQ like brisket and ribs. Their top seller? A BBQ sundae called the “Hot Mess.” It’s served in a funnel cake during the prime summer months, and it includes smoked baked beans, a layer of six-cheese mac and cheese, pulled pork and coleslaw. You know you want it!

Sindbad’s Restaurant and Marina

This legendary Detroit restaurant decided to fully close during the second Michigan restaurant indoor dining shutdown. They’re also not doing carryout until restrictions are lifted. They posted on Facebook: “We will update everyone with a date of reopening once we have more information. Thank you for your continued support, and we can’t wait to see everyone again very soon!” Well, we can’t wait to visit soon! One of our Top 10 picks for Michigan’s Best Waterfront Restaurants in 2019, Sindbad’s has been a staple for the boaters and those just looking for a great dinner for more than 70s years. They have a great selection of seafood, of course, steaks and a variety of other entrees, too. Their famous clam chowder is thick, chunky and full of flavor with the original recipe that dates back to the 1950s. It’s a must. We recommend the mussels drenched in a classic white wine butter sauce and the fried calamari. You can even get frog legs that are either fried or sauteed in a garlic butter sauce. Of course you can’t go wrong with Lake Michigan perch or the Surf and Turf. And the service is the best. Not to mention the stiff drinks. It’s just a piece of Detroit history that’s not to be missed.

Michigan's Best Chili Dr. Rolf's BBQ Muskegon

Dr. Rolf’s BBQ in downtown Muskegon was picked by John Gonzalez and Amy Sherman as Michigan’s Best Chili in November of 2019. They serve three distinct chilis: red, white and green.John Gonzalez

Dr. Rolf’s BBQ

They make three kinds of chili at Dr. Rolf’s BBQ: Great, greater and the greatest! Seriously, we fell in love with this Muskegon barbecue joint in 2019 on the search for Michigan’s Best Chili. They indeed have three chilis — Green, Red and White — on the menu all the time. In fact, you can get a flight to see which one is your favorite. I picked the Red, which is made with smoked brisket, black and pinto beans, and spiced with poblano peppers and green chiles. Amy picked the Green, made with chunks of smoked pulled pork and combination of Hatch chiles, tomatillos and jalapenos. All are made from a local Doctor, who doubles as a pitmaster. Cooking and barbecue have always been a passion for Dr. Rolf Hissom, who grew up in West Virginia and brought with him the culture and cooking influences to West Michigan. They recently opened a second location in Grand Haven. In addition to the awesome chili, you will find brisket, ribs, pulled pork, and a variety of tasty sides such as butter beans, mac and cheese, cornbread waffles and so much more. Oh, be sure to try the “Chicken Things” — grilled chicken tossed in buffalo sauce.

Bennethum’s Northern Inn

This beloved Northern Michigan dining destination has not been on any of our Michigan’s Best searches, but I discovered it with some friends while visiting the Gaylord area many years ago. It’s in a rustic wooden setting, but also leans toward white tablecloths for those who want to be casual, yet experience fine dining. The specials change monthly, and ingredients are locally sourced as much as possible. They are known for their perch, which is lightly dusted and flash fried, and walleye, which comes with a crispy Parmesan and panko crust. They also do Italian, steaks and a Black Forest Schnitzel with house-made Spätzle. Throw in a great wine list, creative cocktails for all seasons, craft beer, a dimly lit ambience, great appetizers and you have a perfect setting for date night. Unfortunately, they are not doing takeout during the pandemic. But put them on your list for later this year.

Weston’s Kewpee Burger

This one-of-a-kind place with a history dating back to 1923, Weston’s Kewpee Burger is best known for its Olive Burger, which took the title of Judge’s Choice at the 2019 South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s Burger Bash. It was also part of our search for Michigan’s Best Burger in 2020. Their signature burger is topped with chopped olives and mixed with loose burger or what they call “crumble” burgers.” It is still family owned, and originated in Flint. “It’s the nostalgia, and the years of tradition” that keeps people coming back, said current owner Autumn Weston. “We love what we do.” Along with the Olive Burger, they offer traditional burgers and other sandwiches. It’s a great destination if you’re visiting downtown Lansing or need a break while passing through.

Comensoli’s Italian Bistro & Bar

It looks like a tiny restaurant on the outside, but inside you will find big flavors inside this hidden gem among the hidden gems. Owner Peter Comensoli is proud of what he has created over the last decade – a casual dining restaurant serving homemade Italian dishes. It even has a touch of the Upper Peninsula. His wife, Nita, is from Ishpeming. You will find a very tasty Cudighi & Pepper pasta dish on the menu, as well as a Cudighi supreme, thin-crust pizza with homemade sausage. The recipes are from the Northern region of Italy, which means creamy sauces and polenta. In fact, we loved the Cream Chicken and Polenta, as well as the Exotic Mushroom pasta dish with red onion, truffle oil, cream, white wine and Fettuccine. A finalist on our search for Michigan’s Best Italian Restaurant in 2017, we can’t wait to return soon.

Amaya’s Fresh Mexican Grill

One of the restaurants I have been craving since our search for Michigan’s Best Mexican Restaurant in 2018 is Amaya’s Fresh Mexican Grill. The Amaya brothers make it a “must” destination if you want authentic Mexican cuisine that pushes the boundaries of what you consider “authentic.” Chef/owner Faustino Amaya and front of the house manager/owner Marc Amaya bring all of their influences from Texas and Mexico to come up with this diverse menu. Faustino was trained in Dallas where the family moved after years in the Monroe area. Originally, they opened in Toledo, but moved to Monroe about six years ago to open their fresh grill menu. Produce and meats are sourced locally. The salsas are made fresh each day, and menu items like burritos, tacos and even burgers (try the Chorizo Burger with a 50-50 blend of beef and chorizo sausage) are a notch above greatness. Oh, and they have their own pastry chef who makes the best desserts. Don’t leave without ordering the flan.

The famous Tostada Pizza at The Ambassador in Houghton, Michigan.Fritz Klug for MLive

The Ambassador Restaurant

One of my favorite restaurants in the Upper Peninsula has a lot to do with the food, and a little bit do with the history you find in the murals featuring Gnomes in various forms of celebration. They date back to the early 1900s when an artist was commissioned to do the murals for Bosch Brewery in the Keweenaw Peninsula. They ended up in The Ambassador in the late ’40s or early ’50s, and remain a fixture today. You can find the history online or in a poem in the menu. Now, if that’s not cool enough for you, how about a Tostada pizza, great subs, a spectacular view of the Portage Lake Lift Bridge between Houghton and Hancock or a fish bowl? Let’s start with with the yummy Tostada pizza — homemade crust and tomato sauce, taco meat, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and taco sauce. Pre-pandemic they were selling more than 20,000 of them a year. It’s made The Ambassador a Top 10 for Michigan’s Best Pizza in 2013. Along with a full menu of pizza and other dinner entrees, the restaurant crew also makes great sub sandwiches on a French bread made from a proprietary recipe. We loved the Submarine Traditional, which features six meats, two cheeses and served hot. Also, make sure to try garlic toast with house made Ranch dressing. It’s addictive. And, The Ambassador is also known for its extensive list of Fishbowl drinks, served in 25 oz. glasses. A must stop while in the U.P.

Crow’s Nest

Pre-pandemic, the Crow’s Nest is one of those places parents love to take their college students. It’s quaint. It has charm when you walk up to the restaurant’s second-floor setting. And the food is spectacular. Consider it an upscale diner that features breakfast, lunch and dinner menus all day. In addition, Crow’s Nest also caters to vegetarian and vegan appetites. It was one of our Top 10 picks for Michigan’s Best Breakfast in 2013. The menu has continued to progress and get more creative over the years. Just last week they were offering a Cuban Benny special on focaccia bread from their own bakery, and piled high with ham, pulled pork, sautéed onions, swiss cheese, pickles and their house-made mustard blend. Oh, and it was topped with two over-medium eggs and hollandaise. What’s not to love about that! The current menu has popular items such as biscuits and gravy, a breakfast burrito, French toast and pancakes, a variety of scrambles, burgers and more. There is even a kid’s menu. We also loved the Queen Anne’s Revenge scramble with zucchini, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, red onions and a vegan basil walnut pesto.

The first time I stepped into Crust back in 2013 while on our first search for Michigan’s Best Doughnut, I knew I was hooked. First, they were a bakery making everything from scratch. Secondly, the ownership group cared deeply about customers, community and employees. Thirdly, they make the best peanut butter and jelly doughnut on the planet! It didn’t surprise me that in 2018 we named them Michigan’s Best Bakery. They do everything well, including cinnamon rolls, sandwiches, pies, breads and on and on. It’s a gem of a place that you need to discover. Oh, and if you find a better peanut butter and jelly doughnut, let me know. I’m ready to do that search tomorrow!

Cedar Springs Brewery Company

In November of 2015, I remember standing a few steps away from owner Dave Ringler and his family as he was cutting the ribbon to open Cedar Spring Brewing Company. It was a big day for the community, and his friends and family. I had purchased a mug club membership online a few months earlier, knowing he would make great beer because of his passion for German beer, as well as his historical knowledge. He was a Top 10 pick for Best New Brewery in 2016. And I picked his Marzen as one of my Top 10 beers of 2020. What I didn’t count on was the quality of his food. With Bavarian and American menus to satisfy every thirsty drinker, he is nailing the cuisine on both sides of the table. Whether it’s his crunchy fried chicken, ribs and mac and cheese on the American side, or his variety of schnitzels on the Bavarian side, the menu stacks up there against any other brewery in the state. In 2017 he was a finalist for Michigan’s Best French Fries, making our list of best chili cheese fries on the search. Oh, and they have a heated outdoor patio that has been very popular this winter. It’s time to visit Cedar Springs.

Sometimes you have to see it to believe it. Or, when it comes to food, maybe “eat it to believe it.” When I first heard El Barzon in Southwest Detroit was having success with two menus, a Mexican side and an Italian side, I said, “Now this I gotta see.” It’s true. We have been there twice, once for Best Mexican Restaurant, and the other time for Best Italian Restaurant, of course. We absolutely blown away each time by Chef Norberto Garita, who is a native of Pueblo, Mexico, but was classically trained while working in New York City. We also stopped late one night on a recent search to check out his new place, La Noria Bistro, a wood-fired pizza place next door that is equally as good. On the Mexican side we loved the seasonal chile relleno, which was stuffed with pork, pears and peaches, then covered in a pecan cream sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. Also, you can’t go wrong with the enchiladas, barbacoa or anything on the menu. Equally, we loved everything on the Italian side. If you want white tablecloth dining, this is must trip. In the summer months you can dine in on a beautiful patio.

The Peanut Barrel in East Lansing, Michigan, is known for its signature Olive Burger, which is topped with a blend of green olives and mayo, and served on a pumpernickel bun. The Peanut Barrel was a stop on Michigan’s Best College Eats tour in 2018 with Amy Sherman and John Gonzalez of MLive.com.John Gonzalez

The Peanut Barrel

The Peanut Barrel has been a favorite stop for Michigan’s Best for many years. We stopped there in 2014 for Michigan’s Best Neighborhood Bar, returned for Michigan’s Best Fries in 2017, and made it a top destination for best “college eats” in 2018. And they have an awesome burger, too! But when faced with a pandemic, what’s your local neighborhood bar to do? Owners Joe and Jennifer Bell decided it was time to “have fun and make you smile.” They put eight “survival kit” specials exclusively on their take-out menu late last year, including discount offers for Long Island Iced Teas and olive burgers. “We thought this would be a fun way to do it,” said Jennifer Bell, whose husband has worked at the bar since it opened in 1973. The Olive burger is its top seller. It is made with fresh, never frozen, beef delivered daily and gets pattied by hand in the kitchen before hitting the griddle. The chopped olive and mayo blend make it a salty good complement to the rich beef. The pumpernickel bun is a good choice, too. Other popular offerings are the Rueben sandwich, hand-cut French fries and the Tuna Melt. And don’t forget a Long Island Iced Tea.

Yankee Rebel Tavern

Mackinac Island has many great dining options during the summer season. The Chippewa Hotel Waterfront is known for its Boursin Chicken, Mission Point Resort for its popular smoked whitefish dip, the Island House for its Ice House BBQ and the Mustang Lounge for pizza, wings and burgers. Oh, and then there’s the Grand Hotel, of course. But the Yankee Rebel Tavern is a place that sometimes gets overlooked because it’s not on Main Street. It shouldn’t. Co-owners Steven and Patti Ann Moskwa are known for having a variety of nightly specials, a decent wine list, cocktails and possibly Michigan’s Best Pot Roast. It’s a classic homemade recipe of tender beef braised with carrots, parsnips, pearl onions and Yukon potatoes. It takes you back in time. If you’re just doing drinks and appetizers before a bike ride around the Island, you can always get the pot roast sliders to share. Fresh fish such as walleye and whitefish are always on the menu, as well as steaks, sandwiches, salads and more. Oh, and you’ll love the Island history in the “Yankee Rebel” name. It is named after Ambrose R. Davenport, who arrived on Mackinac Island as a military enlistee from Virginia and later became a wealthy fur trader. While a prisoner of war during the War of 1812, Davenport refused allegiance to the British, proudly declaring, “I was born in America and am determined, at all hazards, to live and die an American citizen.” He was held at Fort Detroit for three years, Moskwa said, and the British referred to him as the “Yankee Rebel.”

Michigan's Best Burger 2020

D’Angelo’s in Bay City is known for great pizza, wings, an extensive vegan menu and award-winning burgers. We tried six, and each one was spectacular.John Gonzalez

D’Angelo’s

Opened in 2009, we first met owner/chef David Baranowski in 2013 on our first Michigan’s Best Pizza search, and then we stopped again in 2016 for Best Pizza Round 2 (yes, he made the Top 10 both times). We also visited in 2017 for Best Wings. On every visit, Baranowski would say, “I can’t wait to have you back for burgers!” Now we know why. He made the Top 10 for Best Burgers, too! In addition to great pizza and wings, and an extensive vegan menu, Baranowski is most proud of his burgers. Located in an unassuming takeout space in a row of houses and bars on Columbus Avenue, D’Angelo’s makes some of the most delicious and creative burgers in the state. We tried six of them on our recent search, and each one was carefully conceived and prepared by this chef who wears his heart on his sleeve. Ground fresh daily from Jack’s Meat Market on Le Bus buns, Baranowski starts with a quality blend that is seared and seasoned on his flat top grill. The Ultimate Burger, topped with crispy hashbrowns, over easy egg and American cheese, and oozing with maple butter sauce, was a mouthful. We also loved the Tokyo Roadhouse with a spicy-sweet Asian garlic slaw and sauteed mushrooms. New items are expected in 2021 with the help of his business and life partner Kellie Berry. They are only doing takeout now. Check their Facebook page for updates.

Top 21 Michigan Restaurants in 2021

Sibley Gardens

I’m learning a lot about Downriver Detroit thanks to my Michigan’s Best colleague, Amy Sherman. She’s originally from Wyandotte, and over the last several years she has introduced me to many of her favorites in the area, including Sibley Gardens. It was a Top 10 pick in our 2019 search for Michigan’s Most Iconic Restaurant. Established in 1935, a trip to Sibley Gardens is a step back into a different era of dining. A time when regulars sat in the same tables and booths on their weekly visits, ordered their favorite cocktail, an appetizer and made an evening of it. It’s old school, which means they have a big menu (more than 45 items) and you either order one of the specials or “the usual.” Frog legs are regularly on the menu with plenty for everyone at the table to share. (And we have done so on more than one occasion.) If it’s your first visit, the wonderful wait staff will take you through the menu and make recommendations. They love making it a night you will remember. Our favorites items? The Steak Sammy has been on the menu since day one, and is still the top seller. It’s two or three medallions of beef tenderloin sauteed with wine, garlic and parsley. Oh, so good. We also loved the Veal Roberto, made of thinly-pounded meat, dressed with roasted peppers and a lemony broth. Salads, seafood, chicken and veal, and pasta specialties are also on the menu. A throwback experience.

Michigan's Best Diner - M-29 Diner

The M-29 Diner, located in Ira Township, in the southern part of St. Clair County in Southeast Michigan, was picked as Michigan’s Best Diner in 2019. John Gonzalez and Amy Sherman of MLive loved the extensive breakfast and lunch menu, homemade soups, desserts and daily specials. The M-29 Burger is the top seller. It is owned by Chris and Martin Hart.John Gonzalez

Michigan's Best Diner - M-29 Diner

The M-29 Diner, located in Ira Township, in the southern part of St. Clair County in Southeast Michigan, was picked as Michigan’s Best Diner in 2019. Along with the extensive menu, all made from scratch, John Gonzalez and Amy Sherman of MLive loved the M-29 Burger, which is the top seller. It’s a half-pound burger topped with bacon, BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese and onion rings.

The M-29 Diner

It was fun to surprise owner Chris Hart with the award for Michigan’s Best Diner in 2019. She calls herself a “home cook” with no formal training, who puts every ounce of energy into her business. She does everything to make her customers happy and take care of her employees. It’s a thankless job, even though she’s not looking for thanks. “I have no business model whatsoever,” she said when we made our visit. “I just want to serve a product that I’m proud of … . We serve food the way we would make if you came over for dinner.” Opening the restaurant in March of 2017 in St. Clair County’s Ira Township, the diner is almost too good to be true. Everything is made from scratch. Every bite is as savory as the last, whether you’re having breakfast, lunch or dinner or baked goods and desserts. For breakfast try the Southern Benedict, two poached eggs topped with thick sausage gravy over homemade biscuits and served with meaty potatoes, or the Irish Omelette with tender corned beef, green peppers and onions, all wrapped in a thin-layered fold. And our favorite, the Banana Bread French Toast, homemade bread with a light egg coating and sweet walnut/raisin sauce! Lunch? Indulge on deep-fried Reuben egg rolls or the best-selling M-29 burger, a burger patty topped with onion rings, bacon, cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce. Dinner? How about the Meatloaf Bowl, which is two slabs of hearty meatloaf over mashed potatoes and gravy and served with peas on the sides and onion rings on top. Or husband Martin’s special recipe for the tender Pot Roast that melts in your mouth. Some items are only available on certain days, so check their Facebook page. And please save room for her homemade desserts, including cookies, cupcakes and pies. See you soon, Chris.

Hack-Ma-Tack Inn Cheboygan

Michigan’s Most Iconic Restaurant: The Hack-Ma-Tack Inn & Restaurant was selected by John Gonzalez and Amy Sherman as the winner. It was was built in 1894 as a hunting and fishing lodge. It is located on the Cheboygan River at the mouth of Mullett Lake. The Redding family have been the caretakers of the Hack-Ma-Tack Inn since 1979.John Gonzalez

Whitefish Almondine at Hack-Ma-Tack Inn and Restaurant in Cheboygan, Michigan.Amy Sherman

Hack-Ma-Tack Inn & Restaurant

Our winner for Michigan’s Most Iconic Restaurant in 2019, this restaurant made of tamarack trees dates backs to 1894 and is definitely off the beaten path. It is located along the scenic banks of the Cheboygan River, right at the mouth of Mullet Lake. From decorative wooden canoes to an eclectic collection of decor, the inn glows with warmth and charm. Factor in the floor-to-ceiling windows that invite a sunset view or natural beauty and you know you’re in a special place. Servers know the regulars, as well as those who stop in for the first time to experience fine dining in Northern Michigan. Their goal is to make it a memorable night. Owned by the Redding family since 1979, they endured a challenging 2020 like the entire restaurant industry, but overall weathered it well because they’re a seasonal restaurant and avoided the second shutdown. They’re ready to welcome you back in 2021, as guidelines permit, of course. (Check their Facebook page for opening dates.) The menu is diverse with everything from prime rib and salads to Whitefish almondine to buffalo steak. We recommend the lightly smoked whitefish dip as an appetizer. And any of the homemade desserts, especially the coconut cream pie, if it’s available. Call it a night with one of their signature hummers, which are creamy little booze bombs that will definitely have you coming back for more.

Albion Malleable Brewing Co.

It’s always been about “community” for the owners at Albion Malleable Brewing Co. In fact, when co-owners Ben Wade and Charles Moreau first met five years ago, they said, “Albion should have a brewery.” Little did they know after opening the brewery in 2018 that they would not only have a great brewery of Belgium-inspired beers, but they would be home to Michigan’s Best Burger in 2020. From the gourmet Signature Burger with shredded lettuce, cheese and a special sauce to a house-made veggie burger, we were impressed with everything. Locally sourced ingredients in a scratch kitchen are so important to their mission that they decided to grind their meat in house with a mix of brisket, sirloin and chuck. That’s dedication to a mission. The burgers are seasoned and charred beautifully on a flat-top grill. The overall taste is over-the-top good. Whether you’re a fan of traditional greasy bar burgers with American cheese or gourmet burgers with adventurous toppings such as roasted poblano peppers, Albion Malleable Brewing Company has it all. Oh, and their hand-cut/crispy/fluffy fries would rival anyone in our Top 10 of Michigan’s Best Fries. Also, brewer Ben Wade’s Belgium saisons, dubbels and tripels are some of the state’s best.

back to 1923, Weston’s Kewpee Burger is best known for its Olive Burger, which took the title of Judge’s Choice at the 2019 South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s Burger Bash. It was also part of our search for Michigan’s Best Burger in 2020. Their signature burger is topped with chopped olives and mixed with loose burger or what they call “crumble” burgers.” It is still family owned, and originated in Flint. “It’s the nostalgia, and the years of tradition” that keeps people coming back, said current owner Autumn Weston. “We love what we do.” Along with the Olive Burger, they offer traditional burgers and other sandwiches. It’s a great destination if you’re visiting downtown Lansing or need a break while passing through.","_id":"ZM3YDY4FP5GHVAK3HKIKTZM7UU","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892481,"content":"RELATED: These are the 10 best burgers in Michigan","_id":"USJUGCHIRZCFHFOIJEIM5BTO5I","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892482,"content":"RELATED: 30 Michigan burgers you have to try","_id":"Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY","additional_properties":"fullSizeResizeUrl":"/photo/resize/kJx2mTjR9bUCCYPf7KIu8EXpK-0=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","galleries":[],"ingestionMethod":"manual","iptc_job_identifier":"MER86169658a420c9f113c148a422ad0","keywords":[""],"mime_type":"image/jpeg","originalName":"00-com-Michigan_s Best at Comensolis.jpg","originalUrl":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","owner":"[email protected]","proxyUrl":"/photo/resize/kJx2mTjR9bUCCYPf7KIu8EXpK-0=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","published":true,"resizeUrl":"http://thumbor-prod-us-east-1.photo.aws.arc.pub/kJx2mTjR9bUCCYPf7KIu8EXpK-0=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","restricted":false,"takenOn":"2017-10-23T23:23:07Z","thumbnailResizeUrl":"/resizer/F5IAvqRjzGxuszfLiyxhDLg4gdE=/300x0/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","version":0,"template_id":7,"comments":[],"_id":"CF53FAL34BFMJP2W5APMO7YAOY","address":,"caption":"Comensoli's Italian Bistro & Bar in Kalamazoo, Michigan.","created_date":"2021-01-19T04:18:58Z","credits":"affiliation":["name":"Kayla Miller","type":"author"],"by":["byline":"Kayla Miller","name":"Kayla Miller","type":"author"],"height":2000,"image_type":"photograph","last_updated_date":"2021-01-19T04:18:58Z","licensable":false,"owner":"id":"advancelocal","sponsored":false,"slug":"Michigan_s Best at Comensolis","source":"additional_properties":"editor":"photo center","edit_url":"https://advancelocal.arcpublishing.com/photo/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY","system":"photo center","subtitle":"Top 21 Michigan Restaurants in 2021","taxonomy":"associated_tasks":[],"type":"image","url":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","version":"0.10.3","width":3000,"syndication":,"creditIPTC":"Kayla Miller","resized_urls":"original":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","large":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/jK3OkseAdMDQc8NkzP8JtaL6g_8=/1280x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","medium":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/N7I-z8u5-pSIE7eAGwuhkGCiMLg=/700x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","small":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/26wfLV2BGRfb-soFqjFSq795kdo=/450x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","x_small":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/GT7pkDSQTeIvpqXpGrdeK2R1dTQ=/180x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/Q23GL3TXJBBBBBYVPW4EQ2XGJY.jpg","_id":"FVKLRASEHJCH7HQRHEPDX3RHSA","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611051582504,"content":"14.

His wife, Nita, is from Ishpeming. You will find a very tasty Cudighi & Pepper pasta dish on the menu, as well as a Cudighi supreme, thin-crust pizza with homemade sausage. The recipes are from the Northern region of Italy, which means creamy sauces and polenta. In fact, we loved the Cream Chicken and Polenta, as well as the Exotic Mushroom pasta dish with red onion, truffle oil, cream, white wine and Fettuccine.

craving since our search for Michigan’s Best Mexican Restaurant in 2018 is Amaya’s Fresh Mexican Grill. The Amaya brothers make it a “must” destination if you want authentic Mexican cuisine that pushes the boundaries of what you consider “authentic.” Chef/owner Faustino Amaya and front of the house manager/owner Marc Amaya bring all of their influences from Texas and Mexico to come up with this diverse menu. Faustino was trained in Dallas where the family moved after years in the Monroe area. Originally, they opened in Toledo, but moved to Monroe about six years ago to open their fresh grill menu. Produce and meats are sourced locally. The salsas are made fresh each day, and menu items like burritos, tacos and even burgers (try the Chorizo Burger with a 50-50 blend of beef and chorizo sausage) are a notch above greatness. Oh, and they have their own pastry chef who makes the best desserts. Don’t leave without ordering the flan.","_id":"FJCHJSGB5JB7HCKYNDNFP3LSIA","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892497,"content":"RELATED: These are the 10 best Mexican restaurants in Michigan","_id":"2XCARYOYWJFX3LJFXNDAXOG2AA","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892498,"content":"RELATED: 41 must-visit Mexican restaurants in Michigan",{"_id":"ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE","additional_properties":"fullSizeResizeUrl":"/photo/resize/loaEQnvtolM4RSf4J_GFilu7wKI=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg","galleries":[],"ingestionMethod":"manual","mime_type":"image/jpeg","originalName":"00-ambassador-amy.jpg","originalUrl":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg","owner":"[email protected]","proxyUrl":"/photo/resize/loaEQnvtolM4RSf4J_GFilu7wKI=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg","published":true,"resizeUrl":"http://thumbor-prod-us-east-1.photo.aws.arc.pub/loaEQnvtolM4RSf4J_GFilu7wKI=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg","restricted":false,"thumbnailResizeUrl":"/resizer/Ipq6cC2IxbILHWcOVzFeynUQ8gg=/300x0/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg","version":0,"template_id":7,"comments":[],"_id":"LU5TBACH2REVBPXPX6BDYRDO4Q","address":,"caption":"The Ambassador Restaurant in Houghton, Michigan.","created_date":"2021-01-19T04:18:58Z","credits":"affiliation":["name":"John Gonzalez","type":"author"],"by":["_id":"jgonzale","type":"author","version":"0.5.8","name":"John Gonzalez","image":"url":"https://s3.amazonaws.com/arc-authors/advancelocal/7c9ef45c-6fc6-48d6-80f8-38c6adebeb7e.jpg","version":"0.5.8","description":"I'm a Michigan's Best reporter for MLive Media Group where I travel the state looking for the “best of the best.” I also cover entertainment, food, travel, the craft beverage industry and more. https://www.mlive.com/michigansbest/ ","social_links":["site":"email","url":"[email protected]","site":"facebook","url":"https://www.facebook.com/GRGonzo","site":"twitter","url":"https://twitter.com/michigangonzo","site":"instagram","url":"MichiganGonzo"],"socialLinks":["site":"email","url":"[email protected]","deprecated":true,"deprecation_msg":"Please use social_links.","site":"facebook","url":"https://www.facebook.com/GRGonzo","deprecated":true,"deprecation_msg":"Please use social_links.","site":"twitter","url":"https://twitter.com/michigangonzo","deprecated":true,"deprecation_msg":"Please use social_links.","site":"instagram","url":"MichiganGonzo","deprecated":true,"deprecation_msg":"Please use social_links."],"additional_properties":"original": [email protected]","firstName":"John","lastName":"Gonzalez","twitter":"https://twitter.com/michigangonzo","education":[],"mt_author_id":"5448","podcasts":[],"last_updated_date":"2019-04-17T14:37:26.554Z","books":[],"facebook":"https://www.facebook.com/GRGonzo","image":"https://s3.amazonaws.com/arc-authors/advancelocal/7c9ef45c-6fc6-48d6-80f8-38c6adebeb7e.jpg","awards":[],"email":"[email protected]","instagram":"MichiganGonzo"],"height":959,"image_type":"photograph","last_updated_date":"2021-01-19T04:18:58Z","licensable":false,"owner":"id":"advancelocal","sponsored":false,"source":"additional_properties":"editor":"photo center","edit_url":"https://advancelocal.arcpublishing.com/photo/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE","system":"photo center","subtitle":"Top 21 Michigan Restaurants in 2021","taxonomy":"associated_tasks":[],"type":"image","url":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg","version":"0.10.3","width":1280,"syndication":,"creditIPTC":"John Gonzalez","resized_urls":"original":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg","large":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/ZZIFqaMe2TZ8hebk8szUfE4GlZw=/1280x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg","medium":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/rpNqsgNViN7Oz6RGu4SyTJOg7gs=/700x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg","small":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/J2nisSbSwf4pEpzdOPu3jSax0to=/450x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg","x_small":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/WTERej-YWKAfD0sixpNsPy-OWLs=/180x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/ZRGHMLEXBRAEBAKEZYEFII23KE.jpg"},"_id":"2AFWX2V6IJFS7MMJZQGU4OOHHQ","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611051582524,"content":"12.

They date back to the early 1900s when an artist was commissioned to do the murals for Bosch Brewery in the Keweenaw Peninsula. They ended up in The Ambassador in the late ’40s or early ’50s, and remain a fixture today. You can find the history online or in a poem in the menu. Now, if that’s not cool enough for you, how about a Tostada pizza, great subs, a spectacular view of the Portage Lake Lift Bridge between Houghton and Hancock or a fish bowl? Let’s start with with the yummy Tostada pizza -- homemade crust and tomato sauce, taco meat, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and taco sauce. Pre-pandemic they were selling more than 20,000 of them a year. It’s made The Ambassador a Top 10 for Michigan’s Best Pizza in 2013. Along with a full menu of pizza and other dinner entrees, the restaurant crew also makes great sub sandwiches on a French bread made from a proprietary recipe. We loved the Submarine Traditional, which features six meats, two cheeses and served hot. Also, make sure to try garlic toast with house made Ranch dressing. It’s addictive. And, The Ambassador is also known for its extensive list of Fishbowl drinks, served in 25 oz. glasses.

It’s quaint. It has charm when you walk up to the restaurant’s second-floor setting. And the food is spectacular. Consider it an upscale diner that features breakfast, lunch and dinner menus all day. In addition, Crow’s Nest also caters to vegetarian and vegan appetites. It was one of our Top 10 picks for Michigan’s Best Breakfast in 2013. The menu has continued to progress and get more creative over the years. Just last week they were offering a Cuban Benny special on focaccia bread from their own bakery, and piled high with ham, pulled pork, sautéed onions, swiss cheese, pickles and their house-made mustard blend. Oh, and it was topped with two over-medium eggs and hollandaise. What’s not to love about that! The current menu has popular items such as biscuits and gravy, a breakfast burrito, French toast and pancakes, a variety of scrambles, burgers and more. There is even a kid’s menu. We also loved the Queen Anne’s Revenge scramble with zucchini, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, red onions and a vegan basil walnut pesto.","_id":"74YW5QMLFVBBXMTQVAACVKODEQ","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892514,"content":"RELATED: Michigan’s Best Breakfast Joint 2013: Our Top 10 list, and more!","_id":"Y2SESXGMFJBKLAUR32DW7NPK6Q","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892515,"content":"RELATED: Local Eats: Crow’s Nest in Kalamazoo serves up breakfast favorites, vegan options", MLive.com","resized_urls":"original":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/NGQVZH5VKVH3JOLXRVVZBR2CVI.jpg","large":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/hSM_l-A72Dbhi7uLSdxoqWjaAec=/1280x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/NGQVZH5VKVH3JOLXRVVZBR2CVI.jpg","medium":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/Pdb3-m8EEZ3w7ucuUmkr3PTdtOw=/700x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/NGQVZH5VKVH3JOLXRVVZBR2CVI.jpg","small":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/LKvdU1Fb9IwJGXaEQDkcYDDRaQc=/450x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/NGQVZH5VKVH3JOLXRVVZBR2CVI.jpg","x_small":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/spq_OL8TWQjWJDSMKCGehhOvM18=/180x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/NGQVZH5VKVH3JOLXRVVZBR2CVI.jpg","_id":"36FRBL6TRFD33PZCT2O6IQHVTU","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611051582545,"content":"10.

It was a big day for the community, and his friends and family. I had purchased a mug club membership online a few months earlier, knowing he would make great beer because of his passion for German beer, as well as his historical knowledge. He was a Top 10 pick for Best New Brewery in 2016. And I picked his Marzen as one of my Top 10 beers of 2020. What I didn’t count on was the quality of his food. With Bavarian and American menus to satisfy every thirsty drinker, he is nailing the cuisine on both sides of the table. Whether it’s his crunchy fried chicken, ribs and mac and cheese on the American side, or his variety of schnitzels on the Bavarian side, the menu stacks up there against any other brewery in the state. In 2017 he was a finalist for Michigan’s Best French Fries, making our list of best chili cheese fries on the search. Oh, and they have a heated outdoor patio that has been very popular this winter. It’s time to visit Cedar Springs.","_id":"BTAWCDEYS5GQBPZVGYA7XUHZKM","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892533,"content":"RELATED: These are 4 of the best chili cheese fries in Michigan","_id":"SLTFN5WV3ZC3FLEOBEBPX3Q7HU","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892534,"content":"RELATED: 44 of the best French Fries in Michigan","_id":"QDTB7BRHGVDAJBAVPPO2677M6M","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892535,"content":"RELATED: Michigan’s Best New Brewery: Top 10 revealed (2016)","_id":"CMGRU4CJKFBYXGO7WT2ZRCAWBQ","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892536,"content":"RELATED: Local Eats: Cedar Springs Brewing Company provides taste of Germany minus the travel",{"_id":"XY7V5YJ2ZNG6XE7LO6KG2NGIPI","additional_properties":"fullSizeResizeUrl":"/photo/resize/pII0wfgvkXRSsKQA-OZrsPWT_UM=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/XY7V5YJ2ZNG6XE7LO6KG2NGIPI.jpg","galleries":[],"ingestionMethod":"manual","mime_type":"image/jpeg","originalName":"00-el-barzon-owner.jpg","originalUrl":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/XY7V5YJ2ZNG6XE7LO6KG2NGIPI.jpg","owner":"[email protected]","proxyUrl":"/photo/resize/pII0wfgvkXRSsKQA-OZrsPWT_UM=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/XY7V5YJ2ZNG6XE7LO6KG2NGIPI.jpg","published":true,"resizeUrl":"http://thumbor-prod-us-east-1.photo.aws.arc.pub/pII0wfgvkXRSsKQA-OZrsPWT_UM=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/XY7V5YJ2ZNG6XE7LO6KG2NGIPI.jpg","restricted":false,"thumbnailResizeUrl":"/resizer/d17OG8Vn_SifMzijjZUJWhjaoYc=/300x0/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/XY7V5YJ2ZNG6XE7LO6KG2NGIPI.jpg","version":0,"template_id":7,"comments":[],"_id":"37ZTA6CF75FY7E7QTFFVCD7KZY","address":,"caption":"Chef Norberto Garita at El Barzon, a Mexican and Italian restaurant in Southwest Detroit, Michigan.","created_date":"2021-01-19T04:18:58Z","credits":"affiliation":["name":"Tanya Moutzalias","type":"author"],"by":["_id":"TanyaMoutzalias","type":"author","version":"0.5.8","name":"Tanya Moutzalias","image":"url":"","version":"0.5.8","description":"Tanya Moutzalias is a photojournalist for MLive.com.

We have been there twice, once for Best Mexican Restaurant, and the other time for Best Italian Restaurant, of course. We absolutely blown away each time by Chef Norberto Garita, who is a native of Pueblo, Mexico, but was classically trained while working in New York City. We also stopped late one night on a recent search to check out his new place, La Noria Bistro, a wood-fired pizza place next door that is equally as good. On the Mexican side we loved the seasonal chile relleno, which was stuffed with pork, pears and peaches, then covered in a pecan cream sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. Also, you can’t go wrong with the enchiladas, barbacoa or anything on the menu. Equally, we loved everything on the Italian side. If you want white tablecloth dining, this is must trip.

And they have an awesome burger, too! But when faced with a pandemic, what’s your local neighborhood bar to do? Owners Joe and Jennifer Bell decided it was time to “have fun and make you smile.” They put eight “survival kit” specials exclusively on their take-out menu late last year, including discount offers for Long Island Iced Teas and olive burgers. “We thought this would be a fun way to do it,” said Jennifer Bell, whose husband has worked at the bar since it opened in 1973. The Olive burger is its top seller. It is made with fresh, never frozen, beef delivered daily and gets pattied by hand in the kitchen before hitting the griddle. The chopped olive and mayo blend make it a salty good complement to the rich beef. The pumpernickel bun is a good choice, too. Other popular offerings are the Rueben sandwich, hand-cut French fries and the Tuna Melt. And don’t forget a Long Island Iced Tea.","_id":"VYTHS5C6EZBVHABXHRVEKT43UA","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892553,"content":"RELATED: Popular bar near MSU offers ‘survival kits’ with Long Island Iced Teas","_id":"EO3VXLORNNHENHHMFY7K5NQSOE","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892554,"content":"RELATED: If you went to Michigan State, you most likely love these restaurants","_id":"MCCDVI47GVG3TFOST5GXPL23TM","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892555,"content":"RELATED: 44 of the best French Fries in Michigan","_id":"76ZCMG6O35BZPJE3A4OPD6L27U","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892556,"content":"RELATED: Michigan’s Best Neighborhood Bar: Our Top 10 list, plus honorable mentions and best of the rest","_id":"VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY","additional_properties":"fullSizeResizeUrl":"/photo/resize/FB4pq_amopWx8_ax2ZTT5it3-sQ=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","galleries":[],"ingestionMethod":"manual","iptc_job_identifier":"yKD8ZFi3M4EMdYj-LH-A","keywords":[""],"mime_type":"image/jpeg","originalName":"00-yankee-rebel-board.jpg","originalUrl":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","owner":"[email protected]","proxyUrl":"/photo/resize/FB4pq_amopWx8_ax2ZTT5it3-sQ=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","published":true,"resizeUrl":"http://thumbor-prod-us-east-1.photo.aws.arc.pub/FB4pq_amopWx8_ax2ZTT5it3-sQ=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","restricted":false,"thumbnailResizeUrl":"/resizer/qjrChVnjWYQzDv_Ho2fPRnPvfLg=/300x0/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","usage_instructions":"FBMD01000aa20100009bc40000ee050200f41d020038350200cd4003000583050045b20500eacf0500a3f0050093b80800","version":0,"template_id":7,"comments":[],"_id":"JZHGFJTJIVB3JFCSKG3JSXBYTM","address":,"caption":"Yankee Rebel Tavern is located on Mackinac Island.","created_date":"2021-01-19T04:18:58Z","credits":"affiliation":["name":"Courtesy of Yankee Rebel Tavern","type":"author"],"by":["byline":"Courtesy of Yankee Rebel Tavern","name":"Courtesy of Yankee Rebel Tavern","type":"author"],"height":1986,"image_type":"photograph","last_updated_date":"2021-01-19T04:18:58Z","licensable":false,"owner":"id":"advancelocal","sponsored":false,"source":"additional_properties":"editor":"photo center","edit_url":"https://advancelocal.arcpublishing.com/photo/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY","system":"photo center","subtitle":"Top 21 Michigan Restaurants in 2021","taxonomy":"associated_tasks":[],"type":"image","url":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","version":"0.10.3","width":2048,"syndication":,"creditIPTC":"Courtesy of Yankee Rebel Tavern","resized_urls":"original":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","large":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/LQP7JSDYo80HHIt7dqoGYRxeZaQ=/1280x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","medium":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/buor4MqWn_VY_ICwlRqI_YpSXDI=/700x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","small":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/61yQfr_1E49LSdcDnN5RwI_L3Xs=/450x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","x_small":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/Y3DtYznX3VyZ_jb2C_p9VBZTi3M=/180x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/VAPHBGC74ND5ZIXUOVMLCFWWUY.jpg","_id":"4DAKYID3VJD4ZIUOGNDBB26ALA","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611051582590,"content":"6.

The Chippewa Hotel Waterfront is known for its Boursin Chicken, Mission Point Resort for its popular smoked whitefish dip, the Island House for its Ice House BBQ and the Mustang Lounge for pizza, wings and burgers. Oh, and then there’s the Grand Hotel, of course. But the Yankee Rebel Tavern is a place that sometimes gets overlooked because it’s not on Main Street. It shouldn’t. Co-owners Steven and Patti Ann Moskwa are known for having a variety of nightly specials, a decent wine list, cocktails and possibly Michigan’s Best Pot Roast. It’s a classic homemade recipe of tender beef braised with carrots, parsnips, pearl onions and Yukon potatoes. It takes you back in time. If you’re just doing drinks and appetizers before a bike ride around the Island, you can always get the pot roast sliders to share. Fresh fish such as walleye and whitefish are always on the menu, as well as steaks, sandwiches, salads and more. Oh, and you’ll love the Island history in the “Yankee Rebel” name. It is named after Ambrose R. Davenport, who arrived on Mackinac Island as a military enlistee from Virginia and later became a wealthy fur trader. While a prisoner of war during the War of 1812, Davenport refused allegiance to the British, proudly declaring, “I was born in America and am determined, at all hazards, to live and die an American citizen.” He was held at Fort Detroit for three years, Moskwa said, and the British referred to him as the “Yankee Rebel.”","_id":"PUIKL5XVLZAFTDUGYRDTAWJACQ","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892563,"content":"RELATED: 14 Things to Eat on Mackinac Island","_id":"FJ7FVXNFVZB63LGLCBM6IUUE2Q","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892564,"content":"MENU HERE: yankeerebeltavern.com/menus.html", MLive.com","created_date":"2020-09-17T19:50:17Z","credits":"affiliation":["name":"Kaytie Boomer ],"by":[ MLive.com","type":"author"],"height":3280,"image_type":"photograph","last_updated_date":"2020-09-17T19:50:17Z","licensable":true,"owner":"id":"advancelocal","sponsored":false,"source":"additional_properties":"editor":"photo center","edit_url":"https://advancelocal.arcpublishing.com/photo/BJUOXW2ZENG4NAIZZBAL63LQSQ","system":"photo center","subtitle":"LOCAL EATS: Bay City's D'Angelo's","taxonomy":,"type":"image","url":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/BJUOXW2ZENG4NAIZZBAL63LQSQ.JPG","version":"0.10.3","width":4928,"resized_urls":"original":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/BJUOXW2ZENG4NAIZZBAL63LQSQ.JPG","large":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/-a6Wt0ZlAi2jS5IkBYvUJVcrZp4=/1280x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/BJUOXW2ZENG4NAIZZBAL63LQSQ.JPG","medium":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/0BCW21QhHnYYVnQ5OLsNqOoBGHE=/700x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/BJUOXW2ZENG4NAIZZBAL63LQSQ.JPG","small":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/6zN6sqtMt1wKG-5Li59lMgCa3a4=/450x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/BJUOXW2ZENG4NAIZZBAL63LQSQ.JPG","x_small":"https://www.mlive.com/resizer/XaNNoiP-Bxwiqt-s7Ef7-D_Xf-Q=/180x0/smart/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/BJUOXW2ZENG4NAIZZBAL63LQSQ.JPG","_id":"HFYN54CP3ZCI5EYPSSHKNCAE4A","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892566,"content":"5.

We also visited in 2017 for Best Wings. On every visit, Baranowski would say, “I can’t wait to have you back for burgers!” Now we know why. He made the Top 10 for Best Burgers, too! In addition to great pizza and wings, and an extensive vegan menu, Baranowski is most proud of his burgers. Located in an unassuming takeout space in a row of houses and bars on Columbus Avenue, D’Angelo’s makes some of the most delicious and creative burgers in the state. We tried six of them on our recent search, and each one was carefully conceived and prepared by this chef who wears his heart on his sleeve. Ground fresh daily from Jack’s Meat Market on Le Bus buns, Baranowski starts with a quality blend that is seared and seasoned on his flat top grill. The Ultimate Burger, topped with crispy hashbrowns, over easy egg and American cheese, and oozing with maple butter sauce, was a mouthful. We also loved the Tokyo Roadhouse with a spicy-sweet Asian garlic slaw and sauteed mushrooms. New items are expected in 2021 with the help of his business and life partner Kellie Berry. They are only doing takeout now.

It was a Top 10 pick in our 2019 search for Michigan’s Most Iconic Restaurant. Established in 1935, a trip to Sibley Gardens is a step back into a different era of dining. A time when regulars sat in the same tables and booths on their weekly visits, ordered their favorite cocktail, an appetizer and made an evening of it. It’s old school, which means they have a big menu (more than 45 items) and you either order one of the specials or “the usual.” Frog legs are regularly on the menu with plenty for everyone at the table to share. (And we have done so on more than one occasion.) If it’s your first visit, the wonderful wait staff will take you through the menu and make recommendations. They love making it a night you will remember. Our favorites items? The Steak Sammy has been on the menu since day one, and is still the top seller. It’s two or three medallions of beef tenderloin sauteed with wine, garlic and parsley. Oh, so good. We also loved the Veal Roberto, made of thinly-pounded meat, dressed with roasted peppers and a lemony broth. Salads, seafood, chicken and veal, and pasta specialties are also on the menu.

She calls herself a “home cook” with no formal training, who puts every ounce of energy into her business. She does everything to make her customers happy and take care of her employees. It’s a thankless job, even though she’s not looking for thanks. “I have no business model whatsoever,” she said when we made our visit. “I just want to serve a product that I’m proud of … . We serve food the way we would make if you came over for dinner.” Opening the restaurant in March of 2017 in St. Clair County’s Ira Township, the diner is almost too good to be true. Everything is made from scratch. Every bite is as savory as the last, whether you’re having breakfast, lunch or dinner or baked goods and desserts. For breakfast try the Southern Benedict, two poached eggs topped with thick sausage gravy over homemade biscuits and served with meaty potatoes, or the Irish Omelette with tender corned beef, green peppers and onions, all wrapped in a thin-layered fold. And our favorite, the Banana Bread French Toast, homemade bread with a light egg coating and sweet walnut/raisin sauce! Lunch? Indulge on deep-fried Reuben egg rolls or the best-selling M-29 burger, a burger patty topped with onion rings, bacon, cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce. Dinner? How about the Meatloaf Bowl, which is two slabs of hearty meatloaf over mashed potatoes and gravy and served with peas on the sides and onion rings on top. Or husband Martin’s special recipe for the tender Pot Roast that melts in your mouth. Some items are only available on certain days, so check their Facebook page. And please save room for her homemade desserts, including cookies, cupcakes and pies. See you soon, Chris.","_id":"GYIEVBAHKJB5LBK57QBYHLK2UA","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892593,"content":"RELATED: These are the 10 best diners in Michigan",{"_id":"EYXEAN4TKRA65DPU3WPIAO2YV4","additional_properties":"fullSizeResizeUrl":"/photo/resize/iEVJK6-rRMOpSMHF3YEm9o2sy2E=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/EYXEAN4TKRA65DPU3WPIAO2YV4.jpeg","galleries":[],"ingestionMethod":"manual","mime_type":"image/jpeg","originalName":"hack-dining-room.jpeg","originalUrl":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/EYXEAN4TKRA65DPU3WPIAO2YV4.jpeg","owner":"[email protected]","proxyUrl":"/photo/resize/iEVJK6-rRMOpSMHF3YEm9o2sy2E=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/EYXEAN4TKRA65DPU3WPIAO2YV4.jpeg","published":true,"resizeUrl":"http://thumbor-prod-us-east-1.photo.aws.arc.pub/iEVJK6-rRMOpSMHF3YEm9o2sy2E=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/EYXEAN4TKRA65DPU3WPIAO2YV4.jpeg","restricted":false,"thumbnailResizeUrl":"/resizer/CFrjZS_jtQPHD6vKGw_pupyqWNs=/300x0/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/EYXEAN4TKRA65DPU3WPIAO2YV4.jpeg","version":0,"template_id":7,"comments":[],"_id":"AXR4EP567JAXJFE7SOP3IGPDQE","address":,"caption":"Michigan's Most Iconic Restaurant: The Hack-Ma-Tack Inn & Restaurant was selected by John Gonzalez and Amy Sherman as the winner.

Restaurant in 2019, this restaurant made of tamarack trees dates backs to 1894 and is definitely off the beaten path. It is located along the scenic banks of the Cheboygan River, right at the mouth of Mullet Lake. From decorative wooden canoes to an eclectic collection of decor, the inn glows with warmth and charm. Factor in the floor-to-ceiling windows that invite a sunset view or natural beauty and you know you’re in a special place. Servers know the regulars, as well as those who stop in for the first time to experience fine dining in Northern Michigan. Their goal is to make it a memorable night. Owned by the Redding family since 1979, they endured a challenging 2020 like the entire restaurant industry, but overall weathered it well because they’re a seasonal restaurant and avoided the second shutdown. They’re ready to welcome you back in 2021, as guidelines permit, of course. (Check their Facebook page for opening dates.) The menu is diverse with everything from prime rib and salads to Whitefish almondine to buffalo steak. We recommend the lightly smoked whitefish dip as an appetizer. And any of the homemade desserts, especially the coconut cream pie, if it’s available. Call it a night with one of their signature hummers, which are creamy little booze bombs that will definitely have you coming back for more.","_id":"E3OJBDJNHJDBXI62J5QN67QACQ","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611057240171,"content":"RELATED: Michigan’s Most Iconic Restaurant is the Hack-Ma-Tack Inn","_id":"BY6OXKTG3BD3TA3DJTPMDS6F3A","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892602,"content":"RELATED: These are Michigan’s 12 Most Iconic Restaurants","_id":"BGBFOWFJWVFSJB7JH3PSQSYSRU","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892603,"content":"RELATED: 32 of Michigan’s Most Iconic Restaurants you must visit","_id":"APSPALYGFZDO7IIMMYK6ECABYE","additional_properties":"fullSizeResizeUrl":"/photo/resize/s3sk_StGBv9uczOxUVKrB7-tZy0=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/APSPALYGFZDO7IIMMYK6ECABYE.jpg","galleries":["headlines":"basic":"Albion Malleable Brewing Company in the search for Michigan's Best Burger","_id":"3C4EYM26QVEA7G4LQ62JWN3WFA"],"ingestionMethod":"manual","iptc_source":"Jackson Citizen Patriot/Mlive.com","iptc_title":"Staff Photographer","keywords":[""],"mime_type":"image/jpeg","originalName":"JSP_MalleableBurger03.jpg","originalUrl":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/APSPALYGFZDO7IIMMYK6ECABYE.jpg","owner":"[email protected]","proxyUrl":"/photo/resize/s3sk_StGBv9uczOxUVKrB7-tZy0=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/APSPALYGFZDO7IIMMYK6ECABYE.jpg","published":true,"resizeUrl":"http://thumbor-prod-us-east-1.photo.aws.arc.pub/s3sk_StGBv9uczOxUVKrB7-tZy0=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/APSPALYGFZDO7IIMMYK6ECABYE.jpg","restricted":false,"takenOn":"2020-03-06T13:30:47Z","thumbnailResizeUrl":"/resizer/qljaIPjOsS0uaOZw14dcbK-ln_A=/300x0/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/APSPALYGFZDO7IIMMYK6ECABYE.jpg","version":0,"comments":[],"_id":"5PC6UAL6CBBDBEMEGJT2VZ4LCE","address":"locality":"Albion","region":"MI","caption":"The interior at Albion Malleable Brewing Company in the search for Michigan's Best Burger on Friday, March 6, 2020.

In fact, when co-owners Ben Wade and Charles Moreau first met five years ago, they said, “Albion should have a brewery.” Little did they know after opening the brewery in 2018 that they would not only have a great brewery of Belgium-inspired beers, but they would be home to Michigan’s Best Burger in 2020. From the gourmet Signature Burger with shredded lettuce, cheese and a special sauce to a house-made veggie burger, we were impressed with everything. Locally sourced ingredients in a scratch kitchen are so important to their mission that they decided to grind their meat in house with a mix of brisket, sirloin and chuck. That’s dedication to a mission. The burgers are seasoned and charred beautifully on a flat-top grill. The overall taste is over-the-top good. Whether you’re a fan of traditional greasy bar burgers with American cheese or gourmet burgers with adventurous toppings such as roasted poblano peppers, Albion Malleable Brewing Company has it all. Oh, and their hand-cut/crispy/fluffy fries would rival anyone in our Top 10 of Michigan’s Best Fries. Also, brewer Ben Wade’s Belgium saisons, dubbels and tripels are some of the state’s best.","_id":"FHWOEJI3HZBB3D4EDAYHZKDO7M","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892612,"content":"RELATED: Michigan’s Best Burger Top 10 (2020)","_id":"ZOEUFCGGMZE5JIYOAWCM52VF7M","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892613,"content":"RELATED: Winning Michigan’s Best Burger instills community pride, Albion Malleable Brewing Co. says","_id":"OGUTEX6WPJBITGCTYTY62DNOQY","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892614,"content":"RELATED: See all the burgers we tried at Albion Malleable Brewing Company on the search for Michigan’s Best Burger","_id":"OWKBH42NN5GFLAWSCPND33TPOQ","type":"text","additional_properties":"comments":[],"inline_comments":[],"_id":1611026892615,"content":"RELATED: Owners hope the revived “Albion Malleable” namesake can serve as a beacon of economic prosperity in the town again.","_id":"OF64ZQB2JNCFZGQVIBSZIUEAZQ","additional_properties":"fullSizeResizeUrl":"/photo/resize/oGaNsWN1urXfQrZZ3wz0b0rpk00=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/OF64ZQB2JNCFZGQVIBSZIUEAZQ.jpg","galleries":["headlines":"basic":"Albion Malleable Brewing Company in the search for Michigan's Best Burger","_id":"3C4EYM26QVEA7G4LQ62JWN3WFA"],"ingestionMethod":"manual","iptc_source":"Jackson Citizen Patriot/Mlive.com","iptc_title":"Staff Photographer","keywords":[""],"mime_type":"image/jpeg","originalName":"JSP_MalleableBurger25.jpg","originalUrl":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/advancelocal/OF64ZQB2JNCFZGQVIBSZIUEAZQ.jpg","owner":"[email protected]","proxyUrl":"/photo/resize/oGaNsWN1urXfQrZZ3wz0b0rpk00=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/OF64ZQB2JNCFZGQVIBSZIUEAZQ.jpg","published":true,"resizeUrl":"http://thumbor-prod-us-east-1.photo.aws.arc.pub/oGaNsWN1urXfQrZZ3wz0b0rpk00=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/OF64ZQB2JNCFZGQVIBSZIUEAZQ.jpg","restricted":false,"takenOn":"2020-03-06T17:06:54Z","thumbnailResizeUrl":"/resizer/Tr-K-l7W6gYdFYwqXidLDlZPQBM=/300x0/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-advancelocal/public/OF64ZQB2JNCFZGQVIBSZIUEAZQ.jpg","version":0,"comments":[],"_id":"ODUNT7W6URF5FBOCCZMN3MZRUU","address":"locality":"Albion","region":"MI","caption":"Taste tests of the many beers at Albion Malleable Brewing Company in the search for Michigan's Best Burger on Friday, March 6, 2020.
