Restaurants on the Rise
Muskegon’s restauranteurs have been busy opening  four new establishments along the Lakeshore in recent weeks…

Hodgepodge Bakehouse in Norton Shores serves designer donuts, unique pizzas, sandwiches, soups and more. The Deck, located on the sands of Pere Marquette Beach with views of Lake Michigan is a casual BBQ themed restaurant and bar. The Boar’s Belly opened in the old MAC restaurant space which has outdoor seating and a boasts a bacon themed menu. Boat Yard BBQ is a full service Lakeside restaurant. This waterfront venue features southern style BBQ and a full bar.

With several other successful restaurant owners working on secondary locations and a newly approved food truck ordinance in the City of Muskegon, the community should expect even more “food news” in the coming months…
