BBQ Restaurant

“You can't beat this place if you are willing to drive. This is where we go for our Anniversary. Great food, great bourbon and beer selection and the most amazing view of Lake Superior. We usually sit on the beach afterwards, find great Lake Superior rocks, and last year there was live music on their deck! My favorite place in the U.P. You have to make a reservation or sit at the bar (we have experienced the bar full too...only about 6 barstools).”

“As long as you're not on a time frame, the Michigan House is a great option for dining in Calumet. The Michigan House burger or club wrap are delicious options; the fries are cut potatoes and to die for.”
