Great place to day drink! Great bands in the summer on the roof top. Waitresses are spot on. Make sure you try a VooDoo bucket. You can thank me later!

Having been to this locale before when it was more of a dive bar than a restaurant, I thought for a minute it hadn't changed- when you enter near the bar area, it reeks of smoke. But once you escape into the newer dining area,...More

Hidden surprise. Dining inside and on deck which is right on lake Michigan. Casual dining. Also have tiki outdoor bar. Have a sandbox and small playground for young children. Dogs are welcome. Also have a sand volleyball court on the property as well.

The views from the patio are wonderful. The staff was helpful and friendly. Prices are on the expensive side but you have to pay for the views.

My chicken sandwich was awful, it tasted like rubber. I took two bites and was done. My impression is it is good place to get a drink but I don't recommend eating there.

Michigan City's premier destination near the marina, beach, outlet mall and casino boat. Big menu with good variety and great prices -- you'll never leave hungry. Three bars with different atmospheres allows you to barhop without leaving the parking lot. Our service is second to none.
