American | Petoskey, Northern Michigan

The 1911 Restaurant at the Terrace Inn in Petoskey is a charming setting for dinner. A small but very good menu awaits - quality over quantity. The food is exquisitely prepared and presented, especially the planked whitefish. Service is very attentive and personal. Great wine selection. A hidden gem located off the beaten path in the Bayview Association neighborhood. Well worth the stop for a date, anniversary or as a group! We were there with friends for a ski weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and food. Definitely coming back. More

American | Harbor Springs, Northern Michigan

Dan, the owner, greeted us, seated us & made every step of our dining experience wonderful! The brussel sprouts (Chile Lime Agave roasted) were the best I’ve ever had & the filet was phenomenal - perfectly prepared & accompanied by the famous “Detroit zip” sauce & pave potatoes that blew me away! If you are in Harbor Springs, run, don’t walk to Willow for a dining experience you’ll alway remember:) We’ll definitely be back! More

Discover Northern Michigan

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is a heavily forested region rich in game. This area features plenty of outdoor activities and a short but produce-rich summer season. Multiple wineries dot Northern Michigan, offering tastings and dining options paired with the intense and fruity wines made from short-season grapes. Freshwater fish, both cooked and smoked, are abundant and prepared to perfection. Fans of craft beer will enjoy both the beverages and the views of the surrounding lakes in the gorgeous country north of Lake Michigan. If the chill is hard to shake, you can warm things up in Marquette with a Cajun dinner. Be sure to save room for dessert. The Upper Peninsula is rich with wild berries, and you can't leave without trying some pie!
