When a late night snack just won’t cut it, head to one of these Traverse City restaurants that stay open late. And by late, we mean past the midnight hour. Whether you need a chicken gyro and a Greek salad or a really great burger, these local hangouts have you covered.
Kilkenny’s Irish Public House // 400 W. Front St., Traverse City
You’re in luck, Kilkenny’s menu is filled with mouthwatering grub. Their leprechaun balls, cheddar ale soup, and root beer pork will have you dancing a joyous jig. Don’t worry, their craft drinks and handcrafted brew are sure to improve your dancing skills.

U & I Lounge // 214 E. Front St., Traverse City
Known for their Greek cuisine, the U & I Lounge has great gyros and a killer Greek salad. Don’t forget the baklava. If you’re not in the mood for Mediterranean, their American cuisine is just as good (may I suggest “The Real Deal” Coney Dog). Wake up your tastebuds, and check out their menu.
