Some of the best food around, and wonderful ice cream. Our kids enjoy a trip to the area just to go and eat. Across the street from the State Park beach and campground. Good prices

Mussel Beach is a long-time establishment here in Bay City. Inside dining is limited, food is great. Close to walking/biking trails and the State Park.
