Always a favorite when in Ludington!

I believe that Jamesport is one of the best in the area. The food is always great, service is great and the atmosphere is also very good. We like sitting in the back near the little fire stove in the winter months, and I tasted some of their craft beer made in house! Always a hit!

Always trying something new-going through the menu one meal at a time. Again, excellent service, excellent margaritas, great seasoned fries, awesome chicken cherry pecan wrap and perch. First time try of the crabby onion rings. Very rich-recommend splitting with at least 2 other people. The ginger was a tad bit overwhelming the crab flavor-but very good overall.

Four of us visited. All of us were happy with our meals. 2 spinach salads, one walnut and cherry salad, and one grilled chicken wrap. All were very good and generously sized. Special mention to the homemade kettle chips. Our service was excellent and my Alt beer was very well done. Just like Germany.

We had 2 different people recommend that we eat here during our weekend in Ludington and we were not disappointed. It was the middle of winter in a summer resort town and they were pretty busy but we were sat right away. We ordered the Crab and Bleu Cheese Onion Rings - wow! Very unique and tasty. We of course...

This is a very nice restaurant that is a little bit farther from the main downtown street, on James street, but it is one of the best there is. The food is great; try the perch! Very nice atmosphere, cozy and warm. The beers are brewed right there downstairs. We consider this a "must do" while you're in Ludington. There... More

Still our favorite Ludington restaurant. Ashley was a very friendly, attentive waitress. We arrived in time for end of happy hour (good and bad)-good: free appetizers were awesome-tender boneless chicken nuggets: juicy tasty beef strips on wooden skewers, hummus w/homemade fried pita chips....bad: we were too full to finish our delicious dinners after partaking of the free appetizers! The cherry... More

We love brew pubs. This one is exceptional. Not only is there a great selection of beers. The food is outstanding. When we visited they were preparing an art show to benefit local artists. Love their commitment to locals ..

This was our first time we visited Jamesport Brewing company. I was excited that we did not have a wait and the staff seemed fairly attentive. Kind of disappointed that the Stuffed Crab Onion rings didn't live up to their reputation.

We had some delicious sandwiches, but the crabby onion rings were amazing! I've never tasted anything like them. It was a pillar of onion rings stuffed with crab salad. Strangely satisfying! We would definitely return.
