Muskegon County offers diverse and delicious options for eating out. From healthy and seasonal, to ethnic and specialty, the options are limitless. Waterfront views are bountiful, patio dining is plentiful and Muskegon restaurants have claimed numerous accolades. To name just a few: Best French Fries in West Michigan, Best Mexican Restaurant in Michigan, Best Chili in Michigan, Best Doughnut in Michigan and Best Beach Bars in America.

Patios a’ Plenty!

Muskegon businesses have been allowed to “stretch out” into the open areas for dining, drinks and shopping. Stretches along Downtown Muskegon’s Western Ave have taken on a “festive” feel with umbrella festooned patios, cozy outdoor seating, tiki themed areas, live music and food trucks. Downtown Muskegon has closed the following streets/alleys in the city center now through October 31, 2020, to facilitate increased outdoor dining capacity:

  • Western Avenue, entire street between 4th and 5th Streets
  • Western Avenue north alley, between 4th and 5th Streets
  • Western Avenue, north side of the street between 2nd and 3rd Streets

In Midtown you can find Third Street lined with picnic tables and happy diners enjoying fare from Only Canolli, Hamburger Mikey, Naan Pizza and Curry Kitchen.

Some guidelines to make your dining experience more pleasant: 

  • Be especially patient and kind with the staff. The restaurant business is a high stress business under normal circumstances, and the workers are doing their best in anything but normal circumstances. Many will be figuring out how to run things best by trial and error
  • Be prepared for your server. Know what you want to order and try to keep trips to your table to a minimum
  • Bring your face mask. Guidelines require anyone moving about the restaurant to wear one; once seated at your table it may be removed 
  • Call ahead. Hours are varying and many restaurants are requiring reservations
  • Do not forget to tip, and tip well
  • Help the establishment turn their tables by not lingering. Running at 50% occupancy requires a faster turnover for restaurants to be successful
  • Maintain and respect the required 6 feet of separation between yourself and anyone not seated at your table
  • Remember restaurant staff are REQUIRED to wear masks. Do not share your opinion on the matter with them
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19
  • Wash your hands often and try not to touch anything that is not necessary.
