Situated along Red Arrow Highway, an
historic stretch of road that winds along Michigan’s Southwestern shoreline, the
Red Arrow Roadhouse still has the inviting appeal of roadhouses once found while
touring the countryside in the 40’s and 50’s.
With its stucco exterior and arched doorway still intact, the building is a
reflection of years past. Inside the restaurant guest are greeted by a charming
dining room with knotty pine walls, mounted game, antiques and memorabilia.
Rustic hardwood floors and quaint tables are as inviting as the crafted wood
bar, which originally graced Chicago’s East Bank Club.
Though the curb appeal and atmosphere may be the draw for first time patrons,
the food keeps them returning. Menu items include pasta, steaks, ribs, hearty
salads, homemade soups, and the nostalgic 'broasted' chicken dinner, which has
been a menu item for over 30 years, through several owners.
Accompanying the many tempting menu offerings are a wide variety of bottled
beers and a sophisticated wine selection. Noted by Travel & Leisure magazine as
“Harbor Country’s Hot Spot”, and featured in Midwest Living, the Roadhouse
becomes the place to be on weekend evenings for locals and second home owners
arriving from Chicago.
The Red Arrow Roadhouse is open for dinner nightly from with lunch served on
Saturday and Sunday. Weeknights (from September to May) feature discounts.
