In its own simple way, the Great Lakes Bay caters to the true foodie.  You may not find it in overpriced small plates drizzled with truffle oil or expensive cuts of steak, but you'll find it in the stories and passion of the people who make our culinary scene alive.                          

Our restaurant owners aren't just owners.  They're entrepreneurs.  And, more often than not, they're the chefs who are in the kitchen dreaming up the next great item on their menu.  That's because we're home to hundreds of independent restaurants, cafes, and pubs that care about where their food comes from, and how it makes you feel.

The result?  An eclectic blend of dining experiences, from innovative Thai & Lao food served in an old firehouse, to an Old Town restaurant with one of the most impressive wine lists in the country.  No matter what style of food you're looking for, you'll find our local options to be mostly casual and totally cozy.

While you're here, don't forget to taste-test your way through some of our world-famous dishes and favorite foodie hotspots and follow it up with a visit to one of our craft breweries or wineries.
