“A locally owned and operated cozy pub in the heart of Glen Arbor that features American bar food & beer along with an outdoor patio for people-watching. Known for their burgers, tater tots, and great service. Make sure to try one of the local beers from Short's Brewing Company. It is cash only - ATM located at the shop next door. ”

“French food, close to Red Gate Farm, cozy and yummy. This is definitely a special occasion restaurant, though they do have a patio out back if you just want wine or dessert. Book early to make sure you get in to sample Chef Guillaume's wonderful cooking!”

“Right next door to Lake Ann Brewery you'll find this family-run restaurant. You can get a seat outdoors at the brewery, order here to-go, and they'll bring it to your table at the brewery. Great pizza and salads, and the best Chicken Jalapeño Soup you'll ever taste.”
