Serious food in SW Michigan--The Rock at Big Fish Lake, Marcellus, MI
Often go see the inlaws in Cass County, MI. Love the people, the lakes, the scenery, but there's never been a restaurant that didn't feature the same sysco food thrown in the deep fryer or the local mom and pop version of a "wet burrito" (sorry, I'm from TX and I have declared these limp and sad on a good day, and downright frightening on a bad day). I'm so happy the situation changed. Had destination-worthy food at The Rock at Big Fish Lake. Kids loved the perch in brown butter with capers, Husband enjoyed his salmon with avocado sauce, and I had heard the locals rave about the fried chicken so had to try--amazing! Crunchy, juicy, not greasy, and LOTS of flavor. Go to Big Fish Lake for the sailing and fishing and stay for the food---yummy!!!
