Lunch spots

Hello! Looking for recommendations for a good, preferably local, in main area of downtown TC spot for lunch. Looking for somewhere we could get a good local beer or walk to grab before or after lunch, as far as food - looking for on the casual side (we will be passing through from our stay at sleeping bear dunes and on way to charlevoix) so not looking for anything too “nice” where we couldn’t just wear our daytime weekend clothes. Looking for somewhere with good fish, fish tacos, anything that is a must visit or try while in the area. Also any great local shops to stop in. From what I’ve seen it seems that Front street offers a lot?

My family really enjoys Amical but not sure it ticks your boxes. It’s always tasty though!

You might enjoy the Little Fleet food truck round up. It’s a nice spot with a bar and fun food options.

Front St for shopping.

Rare Bird and Warehouse breweries are my two favorites for casual lunch in a family-friendly brewery with in-house beers. Check them both out!

We had lunch at Bubbas twice while we were recently in town. We walked to the shops afterwards!

Hi there!

Here is a fun blog post on our website about places in (or near) downtown to check out: https:/…

Also would agree with comments above that Bubba's, Little Fleet, Rare Bird and Workshop Brewing are all great options that are both casual with great food and drinks!

Thanks for the correct... Workshop Brewing in the Warehouse District. My bad. Worth a visit either way. :-)
