Personally I would look at other cuisine while in TC. There really isn't anything great in the pizza world. You might try The Filling Station. It's brand a new brewery/ pizza place in the old train depot. Mancinos is my go to for pizza and sandwiches for lunch. But the restaurant business is quite diverse in town.

I have been trying to figure it out for over 20 years and I think you may be on to something. Perhaps a magical pizza ruining force field Perhaps an unwritten law similar to the one that prevents the local women from wearing bras

I wondered the same thing. Any time we go to TC we are looking for something interesting to try. They have a lot of different foods available.

And because everyone knows the best pizza is G&D's in Cadillac!

Thanks everyone for their replies. We had a great, but way too fast family trip. I didn't get to do half of what I hoped to get done, but had some great food and beer while there. And the guy at the Beverage Center was awesome! He spent 30 minutes with me showing me some of the best brew Michigan has to offer. Everyone should go there and buy their beer from him.

Glad to hear you had a good time. Did you make it to any of the breweries or wineries?

No delivery to a hotel, but Chef Charles Pizza in Elk Rapids is the best. North Peak is pretty darn good as well.

If you're going strictly for beer, Short's, North Peak and RBB are the best bets. For food, Sledder's bar is great, Red Mesa is great (HUGE tequila selection), Pearl's New Orleans Kitchen in Elk Rapids is to die for and if you really want the best beef you've ever had, head out to the Boathouse on Old Mission. Kobe beef. 'nuff said.

I don't know why everyone's hating on the pizza... Pangea's is awesome and carries some of short's brews to back it up. Give em a go if you're ever back there.

I'm actually from Gaylord. Big Buck just changed its liquor licensing so that they are a distillery and a brewhouse (super expensive, though pretty cool). The sad thing is, while their beer-cheese soup is amazing, their service is atrocious. I've waited 20+ minutes to just get my server to approach our table (with or without water even) and the place is NEVER packed or very busy in general. If you make the drive, make it for the scenery of the place and the bar. Show up not so hungry so that by the time you get service, you actually are hungry and not starving. Have low expectations about service and you'll have a wonderful time.
