DINING AND FOOD

Harbor Country features restaurants of all calibers. Some of the top chefs from Chicago own and operate restaurants in this area to get away from the bustle of the city and to take advantage of the fresh fruit and produce.

PRICE (average entree price): | $: 8-14 | $$: 15-20 | $$$: 20+

BENTWOOD TAVERN - $$/$$$

A favorite of ours! From pub fare to gourmet pizzas, steaks, seafood and roasted chicken. Outdoor marina seating.

600 W. Water Street; New Buffalo | MAP | (269) 469-1699

In the summer season, be sure to make a reservation online or calling in…then get their early, register with hostess, grab a drink at the bar and take the lobby elevator up to catch the breeze and marina views on the rooftop patio. For lunch or casual dinner, definitely try the Prosciutto Fig Pizza.

TIMOTHY'S RESTAURANT AT GORDON BEACH INN- $$$

Romantic, great food!

16220 Lake Shore Road; Union Pier | MAP | (269) 469-0900

Make a reservation on an evening that you don't mind having a leisurely without the kids. A romantic location, but with a smaller kitchen, meals take a bit longer than at most establishments. The mouthwatering menu selections make it hard to select just one appetizer or entrée. If your reservation is before dusk, avoid the temptation of sitting out on the porch as the setting sun really heats the area up.

ROMA PIZZERIA - $/$$

Voted the Best Pizza in Harbor Country! Casual, Italian Dinners. Dine In, Delivery, or Take Out

17600 Red Arrow Highway; New Buffalo | MAP | (269) 469-3698

When feeding a large group, order their Party Pack which is cut in squares and comes with a 2 liter of pop. They also have one of the few carry-out licenses for alcohol. A favorite of ours is the Veggie Pizza or Tomato Bread. Mention that you're renting with Jason and we'll throw in an extra Cheesy Bread appetizer.


ROADHOUSE - $$

Fantastic, lodge atmosphere, family friendly

15710 Red Arrow Highway, Union Pier | MAP | (269) 469-3939

You'll feel like you are eating at a lodge in northern Michigan. This is a great place for kids (louder atmosphere) and can accommodate larger groups. Be sure to order the Blue Cheese Chips as an appetizer.

THE STRAY DOG BAR AND GRILL - $$

All-American Food, able to accommodate large groups, live music on roof-top deck!

245 N. Whittaker Street; New Buffalo | MAP | (269) 469-3939

Climb up the rear stairs to the rooftop for one of our favorite social spots. Happy hours, sunset views and live acoustic music on the weekends. The indoor lower level also turns into the New Buffalo nightlife providing live entertainment and animated bar staff.

SOE CAFE- $$$

Eclectic menu of foods with regional influences!

12868 Red Arrow Higway; Sawyer | MAP | (269) 426-4878

Climb up the rear stairs to the rooftop for one of our favorite social spots. Happy hours, sunset views and live acoustic music on the weekends. The indoor lower level also turns into the New Buffalo nightlife providing live entertainment and animated bar staff.


BREWSTERS DELI AND CAFE- $$

Great Italian Food! Lunch and Dinner!

11 W. Merchant Street; New Buffalo . | MAP | (269) 469-3005

With a quaint ambiance, request a table in the outdoor patio which is open through late fall with heaters. If you're in the area during our winter season, they have 4 tables that border a small stone fireplace. Here you will find great Italian selections. I recommend ordering and the Queen Margherita Antipasti for lunch and splitting the 4-course "Dinner for Two" entrée for dinner.

DUNELAND BEACH INN- $$$

Quaint, great food, "on Central Standard Time"

3311 Pottawatomie Trail; Michigan City, IN | MAP | (219) 874-7729

The Inn and restaurant is situated in a beautiful, forested residential neighborhood only a couple blocks from the beautiful Lake Michigan. Be sure to grab the GPS or click here for driving directions because its very easy to get lost with all of the twists and turns. I recommend trying the seared Ahi tuna appetizer which is crusted with black sesame and seared to perfection – perfect rare - with an Asian noodle salad and dipping sauce

CASEY'S BAR AND GRILL- $$

136 N. Whittaker Street; New Buffalo | MAP | (269) 469-5800

Head to the back of the restaurant and exit out the patio door to a hidden beer garden with live acoustic music on Friday and Saturday night.

FITZGERALD'S- $$

Casual indoor/outdoor dining. 8 minutes from New Buffalo down Red Arrow Highway.

5875 Sawyer Road, Sawyer | MAP | (269) 469-3489

Great urban-patio for outdoor seating. They offer different menus depending on indoor/outdoor seating


SKIP'S OTHER PLACE- $$

Wide variety, good family place, delivery available.

16710 Lakeshore Road; New Buffalo | MAP | (269) 469-3330

The atmosphere is a bit dated, but the meat selection is the best in the area. I suggest you sit in the Pub area if you want to eat out, but you can't go wrong with having a prime rib meal delivered right to your cottage. I recommend ordering the Rib Eye and would suggest ordering up a level than what you normally would (they tend to keep on the rare side). They run a special on a Rib Eye meal Monday-Thursday which includes soup, salad, and potato. I also recommend the Cream of Mushroom soup which is made from scratch.
