Michigan Travel Guide

About the Restaurants

The love for local, family-owned farms shows on Michigan restaurant menus, where it’s not uncommon to see dishes centered around the state’s cherry and blueberry crops in summer and fall—slices of freshly baked pies are de rigueur in most diners. Attire is casual for most Michigan restaurants: blue jeans, a clean shirt, and weather-appropriate shoes (sandals in summer and closed-toe shoes in winter). Businesses kept in the family for decades are the norm, with a few franchise and chain restaurants, dishing up everything from classic American cuisine to ethnic family recipes.
