Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Northern Michigan's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
The staff was very professional and we had great service. The food was amazing. My steak was overcooked but it really didn't matter because the flavor was still there. The only real complaint we had was that it was a tad bit chilly in the restaurant. Otherwise this was a great experience and we'd happily return. MoreOpenTable Diner -
This is a gem in Ellsworth. We had a starter of Brussels sprouts that were outstanding. My husband had the duck and I had the pasta and both were excellent. Wine was picked by the wine person and were also wonderful choices with our food. Topped it off with the white chocolate brownie and homemade ice cream. Delicious! This is by far one of the best restaurants in northern Michigan. Highly recommend. MoreOpenTable Diner -

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!
