We love eating at Ludington Bay Brewery. We have been here many times and always bring guests when they are in town visiting us. Great food. Wonderful selection of beverages. Service is always wonderful. Highly recommended.

We waited for 20 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order - the waitress blamed a shift change. I tried making a joke about it but was treated as if I was just a huge inconvenience. I had two kids with me - thinking I wasn’t exactly their pick of customer.

However, fantastic food (the jalapeño popper pizza is the best pie I’ve ever had!), the pumpkin beer was so AWESOME I brought home a 6-pack to St. Louis, and they were top notch in dealing with my daughter’s food allergies.

Bonus - they were following all safety measures during Covid and we felt completely safe!

Our server, Sarah, was very good. We were here mostly to try the beer on a nice Fall afternoon. I tried both of the IPAs on the menu and unfortunately, did not like either one. Everyone has different tastes in beers so while this particular experience was not great for me, the other people I was with enjoyed their beer so I would say give it a try!

Excellent beverages! Pizza was phenomenal and so was everything else. Outdoor seating was very pleasant. Several favorites were unavailable....but that’s understandable with the current times and COVID-19. Server was extremely busy and with current staffing issues everywhere, we appreciated her service. Great night out.

Sorry. I know these are strange (COVID) times, but we waited over an hour for the ‘famous’ shrimp tacos and when they finally arrived they were a plate of cold shrimp sprinkled with paprika, and 5-1oz plastic cups of salsa, sour cream, feta, guacamole and something else forgettable.

I made reservations for inside seating. When we arrived, we were taken to outdoor seating. I asked why and was told there were no tables inside for 6 people. I’m not sure why my reservation was confirmed, then not honored. It was very windy and not enjoyable to dine outside.

Hair in food, had to ask for a waiter after waiting 15 minutes of being ignored, made a reservation but was sat in the parking lot/loading dock picnic table section of their add-on seating vs their nice renovated more formal patio area, had to get our own high chairs after asking twice and being ignored, it was just a big disappointment.

Despite being a busy night my table was ready on time. Mask compliance was near 100% and servers reminded clients to wear masks when standing or using the restroom. Food and drinks were also outstanding. Hope they remain busy!

We were just passing through Ludington for a night on our way to the ferry, and were looking for a fun place to eat outdoors on a beautiful evening. This was the perfect spot. Coming from New York, this was actually our first dinner out in a restaurant since March. Although the indoor dining room was open as well, the spacious patio meant that we could comfortably maintain distance from other parties, and the friendly servers were all careful to wear masks, so we felt very safe. We enjoyed their selection of beers, and the food was great too. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Really good food and service. Biggest complaint was that we didn't know ahead of time that our table for 6 had to be split up. Otherwise, the dinner was exceptional.

Server was very rude, sat us at a tiny table when we ordered a flight and an appetizer at first and didn’t even barely have room to eat that and we still had food coming out, so we kindly asked to be seated at a bigger table and I apologized but I didn’t think we’d have enough room, (it wasn’t busy at all otherwise we wouldn’t have asked) and it seemed to be a very big inconvenience to our server. Also while we were there we sat at at a table by the bar and watched another customer get ignored for about 15-20 minutes when all’s he wanted was to be rung up for his to go beer, he ended up leaving without making a purchase and I don’t blame him one bit! Wouldn’t recommend this place at all, there’s a couple breweries down the road anyways to deal with this kind of behavior

Great place to take the kids while on vacation. Beer was great and service was lovely, despite the restrictions due to covid. They took their safety precautions very seriously, which I appreciated. Burgers were excellent but pizza was just ok—crust was like frozen vs hand tossed.

For a Valentine’s Day reservation, the place was busy but not over crowded. The food was excellent. Specifically the Mac and cheese and the brisket. The live band playing was a nice touch to our dinner! We will definitely be back.
