Mussel Beach is a long-time establishment here in Bay City. Inside dining is limited, food is great. Close to walking/biking trails and the State Park.

We went here because we had heard about how great their fries were and they did not disappoint. The fries were homemade and delicious.

I stop here from time to time for ice cream. They have a large selection and they have about 10 picnic tables outside to enjoy your ice cream. Staff is always friendly. They also have an indoor tiny restaurant with about 10 tables. Have burgers and homemade fries and a bunch of other stuff. I think it's a great place

Ice cream is the best. Great selection for hard dip and soft serve options. Prices are moderate. Cash only.

My husband and I came here to grab ice cream quick after we went to the beach. Great service and so many options to choose from! We need to come back and try the food sometime because I heard the burgers are delicious!

We were feeling hot and decided to stop by for Ice Cream. They have great choices and make other things besides ice cream. But the out side is dirty and not very friendly and there is no shade.
