Visiting in August

We'll be in Muskegon in August to watch the ponies at Great Lakes Downs. Based on previous postings here, we'll book lodging at the Hampton Inn, and visit Hobo's Tavern for a dinner. Any advice on where else to "dine" to get a unique taste of the city? I'm gonna emphasize "unique" because we don't do chains. We do love diner food, and local pubs. Hoping for some enthusiastic recs here!

Our trip to Muskegon is expanding a bit...

We'll probably be driving up and down the lake shore during the day, before hitting the track. If we have two days (say, 9 AM to 4:30 PM,) to do the tourist thing, what is recommended as must sees-must dos? Again, food and drinks are on our radar too.

Thank you for your help.

Take a side trip south about 10 miles and check out the Grand Haven water front. Kirby Grill has great food and offers a great deck view.
