Welcome to MetroGuide.Network's Traverse City DiningGuide, a directory of restaurants and related restaurant information for Metropolitan Traverse City, Michigan. Use MetroGuide's DiningGuide service to find Traverse City restaurants by location or cuisine.
The proximity of downtown Traverse City to Grand Traverse Bay affords many waterfront dining options, many with a European flavor characteristic of Michigan cafes. The abundance of cherries and other produce during the summer months, and locally produced wines available year around enable many area restaurants to offer a fresh, seasonal menu with paired wines as elegantly as any in northern California, and there is a good selection of small, out of the way organic and vegetarian markets and restaurants. Locally caught fresh water fish are featured on most area menus. The more touristy Mackinaw City area is a great place to shop for unique food items and treats, including cheeses to rival any in Wisconsin, and sweets of maple sugar and other Michigan products.
DiningGuide Traverse City is part of MetroGuide Traverse City, offering guides to hotels, entertainment and more for the entire region.
