Though Marquette is probably best known for our mining history, beautiful lakeshore, and myriad of outdoor activities, our scenic hillside community also has a wide variety of culinary opportunities for foodies to enjoy.

Whether it’s fine dining, local freshwater fish, artisan baked goods, pub grub, authentic ethnic cuisine, or just a good sandwich, we are ready to serve you. Though by no means exhaustive, the list presented here exemplifies the locally owned, independently operated gems you can find in our Eastside Dining District.

Enjoy!
