Craft Beer Destination 🍻

The pizza and beer is amazing. Current beer listed on their website and changes regularly. Menu is fresh and gourmet bar food. Decent pricing. Kid and large group friendly. Busy on weekends and holidays. Put your name on the list and they will text message you when your table is ready. The wait can be up to 1.5/2 hours long. However, it’s worth the wait and allows you time and ability to shop downtown while you wait for your text message announcing your table is ready! Other times you can get in right away (Like 3pm on a Sunday.)

Well, if you boat to Torch Lake you're going to float by it! You can actually dock right there and eat in or get food to go! Either way it's a great location with a beautiful view of the Lake and sunsets! Great spot for Torch Lake gear! Family friendly!

Pizza! Only place that delivers nearby. It will have long delivery times in the peek summer hours. I recommend calling in your order and driving 5 minutes to pick it up. It can take one to two hours on a busy weekend evening. Worth it!

Great place to sit outside and people watch at the craziest intersection I've probably ever driven through. Classy little coffee shop & bakery in the morning. A restaurant with night life in the evening! Lake Bellaire Latte!!!!

Wineries

Torch Lake Cellars has an amazing view of the lake and you can actually see our house. It's tiny, but it's there! Wine is wonderful. They now have an outside bar, tent and outdoor games. Beautiful vineyard. My favorite thing is the bucket of golf balls you ca hit off the hill into a bucket to win a bottle of wine. I follow them on social media and I am shocked multiple people have actually won bottles. It's not easy as the bucket is WAAAAAAY down the hill!
