Kid friendly dinner stop. You can schedule a tour of the brewery in the basements. The SS badger goes by, so you can time it to be out on the deck when it's coming in or out of port. This has become a Ludington tradition for our family.

Jamesport is a higher end type restaurant although you can dine for less if you go with a salad or burger. You shouldn't miss their entrees, though. Attractive surroundings if on the loud side, friendly, great selection of beers. Favorite entrees are Crusted Lake Perch (I mean, this is Lake Michigan), Cherry Bourbon Sirloin (let's see - Cherries Yes, Bourbon... More

Food was good, too bad it was cold. Blueberry beer delicious!!! Server was slow as can be. Did not pre-bus and never refilled water or pop.

After a week of camping we stopped in town for a restaurant meal. Absolutely fantastic! Perch was fresh, chicken piccata good and the the French dip was the best of them all. Waitress Chrisa was friendly and made excellent recommendations from the menu. Will return next year :)

This is a fun little pub and brewing company in Ludington. It has the best JBC beer battered fish and chips which is accompanied by great service and our server Haley was the best. Tried the dry stout ale and it tastes just like Guinness. Loved our visit!

From the moment I arrived, I had a great time. Was greeted by a cheery young woman who asked me what kind of table I wanted. Inquired about the outside tables - which I highly recommend - and was brought outside to sit with a view of the sunset over Lake Michigan. I came to sample their beers - and... More

On a sunny day. The deck is on the west side of the pub and the setting sun is blinding. All of the tables have holes for umbrellas but there are only two available and cannot tilt so they do little good. I only docked one grade for this, but if someone in management reads this, it Needs to be... More

Always love checking out different brewery restaurants and this one did not disappoint. Of course were busy so we checked in and found a seat at the bar. Before even finishing our first drink we had a table. Great waitress, very friendly. She felt bad because they were quite busy and service was slower. We did not mind because it... More

Had the lake perch two ways - fried and sautéed. Both were fresh and excellent. Clean. Staff gave us a number of ideas about things to do in the local area. Very surprised how "up" on the touring scene they were!
