I don't understand how this place doesn't get more reviews. By far the best place for breakfast in Pentwater. It's set up old general store style... Kind of like stopping in at a friend's for a meal. Aside from great sandwiches, the owner, Meg, pickles all sorts of yummy local veggies... Makes great gifts.

House of Flavors Ice Cream

Reviews:
Was in Pentwater for the homecoming parade and knew I had to have ice cream after standing in the heat for a couple hours. I got two scoop cone--birthday cake and Mackinac island fudge. Oh how I miss Mackinac island fudge! They don't sell that stuff in Cali! Both flavors were good, but I'm thinking I should have traded the birthday cake for cookie dough. The sis had cookie dough and it was pretty incredible. The waffle cone didn't wow me, but it was good and I hear they are homemade. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Michigan in the summer!
Spent the day in the quaint town of Pentwater and stumbled upon this place while waiting for our dinner reservation at the Village Grill. Atmosphere is small town ice cream store style, booth seating, with white picket fence and photos of locals on the walls as well as a collection of pigs (bc you may want to pig out on ice cream....). Lots of families were eating dinner here. Girls working the place are very nice and even made a fresh pot of coffee for me since there was no coffee shop open in town. Good selection of ice cream and scoops are very generous. Pirate's treasure and moose tracks -- YUM! Great before dinner treat! Will return if in town again!
Yummy place for ice cream or a Chicago dog after a day at the beach!

Best Coffee in Pentwater! We have been going to VG ever since it opened, and we look forward to sipping their coffee every time! Their espresso specialties are fantastic, our favorites are the Mocha and Caramel Creme Latte (similar to Starbucks Caramel Macchiato but a million times better). If you're in town, be sure to give them a try. Grab one of their loyalty cards too, but 9 drinks get the 10th one free :)
Great coffee and scones. They even made extra sure to put real honey in my coffee. And while they had no organic fare. What they DO have tastes great. :)
Best coffee shop! Great variety. Great coffee. Great service. Our go-to every morning. And some afternoons as well. Donut holes are delicious!

This place is charming and delicious. This morning for breakfast we are outside in the garden and had a very friendly and attentive server, even though we were outside. I ordered the Basile Omelette which has cream cheese and scallions. This was unique and amazing - highly recommend it. The toast is served with a homemade strawberry jam (made every other day) - great touch. Highly recommend for breakfast.
One of the best omelettes I've ever eaten. Good service, comfy seating. We drove there when leaving Mears State Park, but it's definitely within walking distance to Park. Will definitely be back.
We used Yelp to find a breakfast restaurant in Pentwater and landed at the Cottage Garden. We could not have been happier! Lajean took extraordinary care of us, making local suggestions to ensure a fun day. My husband had the Supreme Omelet with smoked salmon, capers and cream cheese, and I felt traditional and had French Toast and Sausage. We will definitely be back!

Food is always delicious. Service is pretty slow at times; it almost seems as if they're understaffed. Yet, The Antler Bar has a wonderful atmosphere.
Wonderful food and service! It can get a bit busy during the summer so you may have a bit of a wait. Menu offers a large selection of appetizers and entrees. Pretty extensive menu for a bar! Full bar service. Fun atmosphere. They have a music box, Pool table, and a couple televisions that typically show sports. The staff is friendly and helpful. They do see some bar merchandise too. Highly recommended - one of my favorite spots in Pentwater.
Had not been in the Antler for years due to a bad experience way back. Decided to give it another chance tonight, a Wednesday. Arrived 7pm, got seated in under 5 minutes, drinks ordered within another 5 minutes. Service was top notch! I had the Antler beef burrito which was very tasty. Wife had a Mexican veggie rice bowl and loved it. My Bell's Two Hearted ale was nice 'n cold. We're putting the Antler back on our list. We were fed and back on the street by 7:45.

The Brown Bear

278 N Hancock St

Reviews:
LOVE this place. I have to get their deep fried cauliflower!!! I don't know what they use for their ranch, but it is awesome!! All of their food is great!
The single most delicious cheeseburger I've ever had in my entire life. This is worth a serious roadtrip from just about anywhere. I don't know what they use, Lawry's? The best ground beef ever on a well seasoned grill? Whatever it is, these burgers are fantastic. Wait as long as you have to (although it's usually not all that long) and come from wherever you have to. Get this burger. It's available in three sizes- Wimpy, Cub, and Bear. The Bear is a true showstopper. And the Bear with all of the ultimate fixings (including a giant slice of ham!?!) is as big as a dinner plate. Oh man, I'm starting to get a hankering, but make mine Cub sized...
A disappointment !!! I ran into a lady while camping in Mears, she made this place sound wonderful and informed me that they have the best burgers hands down. Well, after trying them I've come to the conclusion that I was chatting with a crack head. The staff was good, the portion size was good , however the burgers were average. I had their homemade chips that lacked any flavor and were burnt. The rest of the family had their french fries and stated that they were " just ok." Definitely not a place I would try again.

Dockside Restaurant & Pizzeria

Reviews:
One star only because my companions thought their food (calzone and chicken fingers) was OK. One of the worst meals I've had in my recollection. After ordering a chicken Caesar salad the server off-handedly informed me that they didn't have romaine lettuce, was that OK? I thought about it and decided to accept the salad with iceberg lettuce because how bad could it be? (Never mind that it isn't a Caesar salad without romaine.) When my salad arrived I was appalled. The iceberg lettuce was less than fresh and practically shredded. The chicken was weird-looking but plentiful and it tasted OK. Surprise, there were no croutons, which, along with romaine lettuce, was listed as an ingredient on the menu. Obviously this salad should not have been on the menu. There was no apology, either for the lettuce or the absence of croutons. They didn't ask how my food was. I should've sent it back but frankly, there was nothing else on the menu that i wanted to eat.
I am a Chicago boy who protects the standard of quality pizza as my sworn duty. In Chicago this place would be a 3-3.5. Considering the competition, Dockside is an easy 4-4.5. I'm sticking with this group as my choice for pizza when in the area.
We stopped in here for breakfast. The food was fair and the service was good, however the bathroom was extremely filthy! It really turned me off amd made me never want to return.

Have you ever had Little Caesar's or Pizza Hut? Go there instead. Pizza lacked any substance, crust was rubbery, double cheese was a basic layer of cheese, sauce could have come from a jar. I called the wrong place by accident.... I should have called Dockside again.
So happy to have this place here. They're quick and friendly oh and the food is spot on. I'm a huge fan of most of the grinders and a huge fan of the BLT pizza, don't knock it until you try it!
Great pizzas, sandwiches, and fries. Located downtown in Pentwater, with a nice outdoor patio that you can see the town from. Every trip my family takes to Pentwater isn't complete without at least one meal here.

The pizza was actually good. I was very hesitant, but the pizza places in town were closed, I assume for the winter. Good pie for a reasonable price.

Village Cafe-Village Pub - Pentwater

Reviews:
The waitress was really nice and the place looks good from the street. Very average burger and chips. Would have given 3 stars but was just really dirty with a sticky layer over everything and the ketchup bottles look like they have been refilled for years since last washed.
The location was great, nice view of the water. All the servers were hanging out by the door which seemed odd, maybe a slow night. I ordered the Tuscan chicken and my husband the steak. The chicken dish was tasty, but mostly because of the wild rice and vegetables. The actual grilled chicken breast was dry with melted mozerella, very bland. My husband liked his steak, and the sweet potato fries were very good.
The food is good but our service was AMAZING! My husband was born and raised here so he'd never brought me here- I made him today- well worth it he and I both agree... Nothing like the lake, beer, GREAT service and good food-- nice job Heidi
