Local Restaurants
Docker's Restaurant

Our neighbor, and a great summer/fall restaurant that is walking distance from The Pidge Inn. Take a shortcut around the marina for excellent food, views of the harbor and Harbour Towne Marina (and The Pidge Inn!).  Music during the summer on Friday/Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons.  Please note that the directions below take you the “long” way. If you sit at the bar, ask for the ‘bar top special’. Located at 3505 Marina View Point, Muskegon, MI 49441.

Distance: 0.4 Miles - 7 Minutes Walk
The Deck

This summer and fall restaurant is located directly on Pere Marquette Beach on Lake Michigan.  Tons of outdoor seating, great food and music on most evenings and Sunday afternoons.  Have dinner and cocktails in one of their pontoon boats!  A good choice is to walk from The Pidge Inn, down the channel past the Silversides submarine, to the Coast Guard station, and down the beach to The Deck for a sunset dinner.  It’s a beautiful 15 minute walk each way, and if you come back after dark, watch out for deer. Located at 1601 Beach St, Muskegon, MI 49441.

Distance: 0.7 Miles - 15 Minute Walk
Lake Bluff Grille

Opening summer 2022.  When we are in the mood for a little more upscale dining, with great food and service, the Lake Bluff Grille is our choice.  It is located at the Muskegon Country Club, est. 1908 on 130 acres of dunes, and the dining room overlooks the beautiful golf course.  While you are there, see if they will let you step out onto the banquet hall deck.  You’ll get a great overlook of Muskegon Lake. Located at 2801 Lakeshore Dr, Muskegon, MI 49441.

Distance: 2 Miles
Frosty Cove

No matter where you go, on your way back to The Pidge Inn, make sure to stop by the Frosty Cove and get some ice cream.  Our only hint is that you should probably order the small cone, as it is larger than most larges from other places!  It’s seasonal, so get it while you can.  Located at 2565 Lakeshore Dr, Muskegon, MI 49441.  A second location is now located in the snack hut on Pere Marquette Beach.


Distance: 2.3 Miles
Lakeside Cafe

The breakfast is great, priced right, and served all day.  They also have great sandwiches, and if we get the craving for a BLT, they have the best one in town.  They work great with those who have special diets.  Open for breakfast and lunch.  (Door Dash) Located at 1384 W Laketon Ave, Muskegon, MI 49441.


Distance: 4 Miles
The Glenside Pub

Local restaurant, has really good food, great service.  They are known for their pizza but their Cherry Chicken Salad is awesome. (Door Dash) Located at 1508 W Sherman Blvd, Muskegon, MI 49441.


Distance: 4.2 Miles
Hanks Tavern

Have you ever had a restaurant that you go to so often you feel bad, thinking you really should go somewhere else...but it is so good every time, no matter what you get, that you keep going back?  That is Hank’s Tavern.  If you sit at the bar, the bar top special is a great deal.  Located at 2536 Henry St, Muskegon, MI 49441.


Distance: 5.2 Miles
Mr. Scribs

If we are out of town for a while, the first place we go to get pizza is Mr. Scribs.  You can eat there, but consider bringing your pizza back to The Pidge Inn and sharing with the management!  It is a Muskegon classic and open late for those late night cravings.  (Door Dash) Located at 3044 Henry St, Norton Shores, MI 49441.


Distance: 5.7 Miles
Toast 'N Jams

Another great breakfast and lunch destination in a really cool retro-diner atmosphere.  We have always had great service at Toast ‘N Jams, and feel like we might be related since we worked with the same architect for our remodel.  (Door Dash) Located at 211 Seminole Rd. Muskegon, MI.
