Ludington Area
Dining & Restaurants

Most restaurants in Ludington are easily found on the US-10 corridor or in and around the downtown region. Choose from fine dining, pizzerias, ice cream parlors, cozy cafes, pubs, coffee shops and good old fashioned family restaurants. Each place comes with small-town, friendly service that makes your dining experience complete. During the busy summer months, it may be wise to call ahead to see if the restaurant you're planning to visit takes reservations.

More and more restaurants are taking advantage of locally sourced food to better serve their customers. Here along the lakeshore, you will find produce farms that practice sustainable, organic agriculture, poultry and meat producers that raise free-range and grass fed livestock without the use of hormones or antibiotics, homemade, preservative-free bakeries, as well as cheese and dairy farms. Eating fresh and healthy is easy to do here in West Michigan.
