Beer is is right on and priced just right. Food is so so..not much bang for your buck...if you want good quality beer, and various styles to choose from, you picked a good place. Real close to Lighthouse mall and the Beach..meets the location, location criteria.

Always wanted to try after driving by it a couple times. Friendly place from moment we walked in. Able to get seated immediately however there was a wait about 10 minutes later. Busy place. Beer was very good, they were having their anniversary sale going on. We started with a side of pierogi's. They were very good. We both had... More

I gave it a 3 just because my tacos were amazing. But we sat in the family area because it was the only thing available. We felt like we were being punished and put in a back room or something. Just such a quiet bare room with nothing to look at, no tv like the other area, just blah. My... More

We had been here years ago, and not impressed enough to return. College son loves it and wanted us to give it a try. Wow, we went for lunch on Sunday and everything was awesome. We had burgers, tenderloin, and pastrami sandwiches. Server, Eddie was attentive and really personable. Had a couple different beers, including beer of the month, very... More

This is our second visit to Shoreline. Visited late afternoon, good service and good selection of food and beers. Food was just okay, nothing too special.

We started with the 6 beer sampler ranging from light to dark. My husbands favorite was the Sesh - light, citrusy, low hop, non-bitter drinkable beer. My favorite was the Don't Panic - lightly hopped, almost nutty characteristic. Our third favorite was the Singing Sands - the darkest of the sampler. Nice chocolate notes and creamy. We chose to share... More

We were looking for someplace to eat in Michigan city and stumbled upon this place. From the outside it doesn't look like much but this is a hidden treasure. The food selection and combinations are what you would expect in a larger city. I had the pulled pork sandwich. The pulled pork had the best flavor I've ever had. I... More

This place has such potential, but the service the day we were there the service was pretty bad. We were told it would be 20-30 minutes for a table - it was 45. By the time we were seated, they were out of pretzel buns and TENDERLOINS! I will say the pierogis were delicious, and the Bloody Mary's were amazing!

Very good food every time we go and of course the great beer. It's no wonder it is rated number 2 in all of MC
