Michigan Bar is a local favorite and you'll always find a great crowd there. You may even have a short wait on busy nights.

We visit here regularly since we live in the area. They have excellent salads! We usually gets the ribs or perch but they have great burgers too. We have never ordered anything we disliked from Michigan Bar & Grill. Sometimes the place can get a little loud depending on the people seated near you.
