Barley & Rye Bar

Reviewed By NikaNumber1

Bowl ($6.99 base price) with pulled chicken ($2.49) all of the free toppings and avocado with sriracha sauce. I ordered the nachos ($7.99 base price) with pulled chicken, all the free stuff, plus guacamole ($.79), cheese sauce ($.99) and sour cream ($.49) adds. Don't think the guacamole is made in house since the waitress wasn't sure if it was, but wanted some with my nachos. The tops of both the barrel aged sriracha and Zach's hot sauce were so sticky and left residual sauce on my fingers as I tried to open either of them, nasty. Our waitress with the purple highlights in her hair appears to be new, she didn't know if their guacamole was fresh and if they had Dos Equis beer or not, she took a bit to put in our order even though we had ordered about 5 minutes or so before. My husband had a blueberry crush beer, on draft, it was decent. The barrel aged sriracha was tasty, doesn't taste like the standard sriracha of course, but still good. Zach's sauce wasn't my favorite. The bowl was on the small size, the nacho came on a long rectangular plate and would have been enough for two of us to eat. My husband helped me with my nachos since it was too much to eat alone and it was piled high and smothered and covered with toppings, leaving little nachos exposed. There was a lot of yummy pulled chicken and I am happy to report the guacamole appears and tastes house made fresh. The nacho dish was longer than my forearm. The nacho meal was more bang for the buck over the bowl for the amount of food and toppings on the nachos versus content in the small bowl. Do beware the tables on the sides aren't clean, my jacket cleaned off some residual sauce from the side of the table. Argh.

Four of us enjoyed an ample meal—fried perch, whitefish, and chicken entrees, a lamb gyro, salad bar, and fried mushrooms as sides. Homemade bread with butter and jam was a nice surprise. No reservation, quick and attentive service, Main Street location. thank you Cathy!

The Q Smokehouse

Reviewed By ruth4005

I've been to the Q twice to eat this summer--once actually in the restaurant, which is small, and once for take-out. It then became the choice for our family's mini-reunion (35 people) in Ludington. The beef brisket and pulled pork were a hit, and the sides, especially the baked beans, were great. Everything was hot and packed up carefully for the drive. We got way too much sauce, and could have had more beef brisket, since that was the favorite. But everyone was very happy with the taste and quality of the food.

Although we visited the roof top bar during a rainstorm, we remained dry and had an excellent lunch. Our server was attentive and very helpful. The lobster nachos were amazing. I'm not a fan of the rooftop view (commercial/industrial rooftops, no lake view), it was comfortable despite the rain.

Cafe 106

A true Ludington secret located just a half block off of Ludington Avenue. Specializing in made from scratch, American fare for breakfast and lunch. The place is small so come early and beat the crowds

Reviewed By Loup407

I stopped by for breakfast recently. “Over easy” eggs were over cooked. The hash browns were undercooked. I asked for “no toast” and got toast anyway. Right downtown, great location and easy parking. I would eat elsewhere, next time I’m in town.

Chef John's Bakery & Cafe

Reviewed By 629ashleyr

My husband and I came here for breakfast and were not disappointed. We’ve been coming to ludington for years and never tried this restaurant. The wait for the food was quite a while, we had to ask for silverware, but the staff was friendly, and our food was AMAZING! We’ll definitely be back to try the other goodies they offer and lunch sometime. We came for breakfast this visit. They are closed on Sunday’s. But definitely worth checking out. I got French toast, my husband got the breakfast sandwich.

Table 14

Local Chef brings southern flair to Ludington. Chef Howard Iles has spent most of his career in South Carolina and has returned home to Michigan with some delicious recipes.

Reviewed By larrywatsonl

We spent the night in Ludington before taking the SS Badger to Wisconsin. We saw Table 14 as we were walking around town. We called and left a voice mail to make a reservation, which is highly recommended since they only have 14 tables. They called us back a little while later to confirm, and to suggest we come in a little early if possible. When we arrived we were greeted and seated quickly. Our server was excellent and a lot of fun. I had the buttermilk fried chicken and my wife had the mussels with fettucini. Simply said, this was some of the best restaurant food we have had in ages. We live about an hour and a half from Ludington and may very well do an overnight trip just to eat at Table 14 again.

Great craft beers and nice friendly staff. The food was good not great. Beer cheese soup was like paste it needed more flavor and more liquid. Cottage pie would be better with fresh vegetables. Salads were good. Stick to pub grub

This is a pizza place.

Reviewed By MAR319

Pizza was really good, it took over an hour for the pizza to be made, longer than the estimated wait time but the pizza was pretty good. Just have to plan ahead depending on how hungry you get lol. Building was small and incredibly hot inside, that was the only other downfall.

Bortell’s Fisheries

Fish market specializing in fresh, smoked and fried fish. Open May thru Labor Day weekend 11am-8pm Tuesday thru Saturday 11am until sold out on Sunday Closed Monday

Reviewed By DayBreeze

Had to try this based on past reviewers but we found it to be overpriced and overdone. Our perch basket was dry. Everything deep fried. No inside eating here. No ice or glasses for beverages.Our fish market has a giant mural painted on the front of the building. In great big letters right above the door it says "Hot Fried Fish To Go". You are disappointed everything is deep fried, there is no inside seating and no glasses for beverages. Wish you would have seen our T-Shirts, they say "you don't look so hot yourself".
