Awesome farm-to-table restaurant in downtown Fennville (about 4 miles from our home). A little pricey, but they always have an interesting menu and delicious food. Great place for a nice night out.

The Blue Goose is a mish mash of 1970's 80's and 90's decor with 1980's pricing (2 eggs, potatoes, and toast is less than $5). Locals frequent this place as well as tourists. It's not fancy, but it's an affordable, yummy, LOCAL place for breakfast or lunch!

Chicken Scratch Farm and Bakery is an adorable small town place to pick up (currently take-out only) breakfast and lunch. Excellent homemade food and delicious pastries.

Wagoner's is the local grocery store in Fennville. You should be able to find most food essentials and more there. While there is not tons of choice like the big grocery chains, they do have a little bit of everything.

The What-Not-Inn is a rustic, mid-century, comfort food type of a place. Not fancy at all, but great service and good food. Decent prices (sometimes they have great specials). A little pricey for what it is but you can get out of there for under $40 for two including two entrees and two (alcoholic) drinks.

Cranes is an experience. It has a U Pick Orchard, a restaurant, and wine tasting (it's more of a wine tasting bar than a tasting "room"). The restaurant is a farm-style restaurant- the kind with grandma's kitchen tables and a hodge podge of wooden chairs. The decor on the walls is collectible/antique and lots of fun to look at while you wait. The food is home style comfort food (their apple cider is awesome) - sandwiches and pies. Again, a little pricey for what it is, but you're paying for well sourced food, a family run business, and a pretty cool experience. Cranes pie is "famous" in this area - try a "pie flight" if you can't decide between them all!

Fenn Valley Winery is less than 1/3 of a mile from our home - you can walk there (we do!), or more importantly, walk back after you've had some wine. They have a tasting room that is open year round (review their hours online during the off season especially) and vinyard tours during peak season. We bring family and friends to the tasting room almost every time they visit- 7 pours for $5 - $10!

Virtue Cider is a cool Hard Cider House where you can do a tasting and get an appetizer (not tons of selection, but there are a few things)! During the summer you can relax outside where they have everything from picnic tables with umbrellas for shade, hammocks, and Adirondack chairs. There are also animals on the property (a giant bunny, ducks, chickens, goats) and you can even play a game of bags if you so desire! During COVID they have required reservations, so do look online for current updates/procedures.

West County Park has a park with playground equipment and a view of Lake Michigan. In the past there were beach stairs and access to a beach area. More recently, because of beach erosion, the beach stairs and beach have not been accessible. But it's still a nice park and a place where you can see Lake Michigan.

Food scene

This is our favorite pizza in the area (that we've found so far). If you like thin crust pizza, this is your place. They do not deliver to our house, but it's a short 12 minute (7ish miles) drive!
