Steakhouse | Midland, Northern Michigan

We loved the painting of the periodic table on the wall on one side and the wine cellar and garden display on the other in your private room for our mom’s 90th birthday. I would just remember to have the cellar door closed to keep the warm air in and appreciate bringing in two space heaters! The food, wine and cake were delicious. Thank -you. 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!
