Lots of choices hubby had apple pie ice cream in waffle cone I had just a scoop of peanut butter brownie and that hit the spot.... More

It was one of the best burgers I have eaten. We also had their onion rings, which were freshly cooked and not greasy like some places. The handcut fries were very good and the portion size was awesome. My daughter couldn't even eat all of her fries with her 10 piece wings. The prices were very reasonable. Unfortunately we didn't...

This is a nice little ice cream shop a nice little walk or bike ride away from the campground, beware though that they are cash only. Our first time going there we didn't have cash just credit cards and had to go to find an atm.

Do yourself a favor and stop by Mussel Beach as often as you can. We stopped for breakfast and enjoyed a 3 egg meat lover omelet, pancakes and bacon and scrambled eggs with ham and home fries. It was all wonderfully prepared and served with a smile. It is such a comfortable and welcoming place. Can't wait to go back!!

We were staying a night in Bay City and, after doing some research, decided on Coneys, a stuffed cheeseburger, and onion rings from Mussell Beach for our dinner. Their Facebook page stated the hours as 8:00 am -8:00 pm, but they should have specified this is for ice cream only. We arrived at 7:35 pm, only to see 2 closed... More

Hidden little gem of a restaurant. Right next to the railtrail bike path and Bay City State Rec. Area. Not fast food! Great food at reasonable prices. Wonderful stop off for ice cream lovers. Open all winter which is a big plus for us! Can't make a mistake if you stop but don't miss the opportunity if you are in... More

We love Mussel Beach! We live only a few miles away, so it's great to be able to ride bikes down there from our home. The place is packed on hot summer days with people waiting in line to get ice cream. The ice cream is very good with a wide array of choices. I had a brownie bowl and... More

After having seen Mussel Beach written up in the local news papers for being the top in the state for coney dogs, we finally had a chance to try on our holiday weekend visit to Bay City. The dogs were quite good. The onion rings were wonderful. The gentleman who waited on us was super friendly and very attentive. We... More
