After golf at Crooked Tree we had to get our fix at KJAB. Great sandwiches, fried perch and cold Summer Shandy. Fun to look at the big boats docked at the Yacht Club after the meal. Sit outside!

This is a good restaurant in an exceptional location. You can pass the time looking at the marina while enjoying typical bar food. It is reasonably priced and if you have kids they can play around in the lawn.

Our first visit to Knot Just a Bar we ate inside due to rainy weather and we enjoyed the food and the sea worthy casual environment. We ate outside our second visit and enjoyed the patio music, good fiod and a pleasing sunset.

Nothing overall special about the food - standard burger and sandwich fare. But a fun setting right off the dock. We had a friendly server for our large group and we enjoyed the vibe the evening we visited.

We have savored four visits to the Knot Just a Bar location in Omena, MI and found the famous perch basket perfect every time (OK, so I love Lake Michigan and am happy to have perch as often as possible...). The location was only so,...More
