Good food is available in towns up and down the Lake Michigan shoreline. There are surprisingly few restaurants on the waterfront, so if you have your heart set on a water view during your meal, make sure to look for "waterfront" or "overlooking the water" in our description. We've arranged our list running from south to north, from New Buffalo up to Whitehall and Montague. You can easily see what's available just up the road in a nearby town.
