GRAB: The Landing

10231 Ferry Rd., Charlevoix | The Landing Website

Two favorites on this coastal-inspired menu: beach fries and lobster rolls. The fries are topped with Old Bay Seasoning and paired with malt vinegar sauce. For the rolls, fresh lobster meat is brought in from Portland, Maine, and you’ll also find Mary- land blue crab, Alaskan sockeye salmon, Hawaiian bigeye tuna and shrimp from the Gulf. Place to-go orders online or call 231.547.9036. Don’t have a boat? The Landing’s waterside deck is absolutely fabulous.

& GO: Oyster Bay

With warm waters and several shipwrecks, shallow Oyster Bay is a great spot for swimming and snorkeling. Find it on the northern shore of Lake Charlevoix, about 3 miles from downtown, or 3.5 nautical miles from The Landing.
