Great Grand Lake Places to DineWednesday, October 21st, 2009
We all know that Grand Lake is a great place to have fun, relax, make memories, and do all kinds of water sports but we also have several unique dining spots for both lunch and dinner.
In Grove for lunch we enjoy The Backporch Cafe at the gate to the Harber Village musuem. Here you won’t find fine china but you will enjoy gormet sandwiches for all tastes and nothing like a fast food joint will offer.
Another day you might enjoy Raggedy’s located on Hwy 25/10 as you go east out of Grove. Raggedy’s will have sandwiches, salads, soups, and deserts for all tastes and like no other place you have been.
For a great lake view while dining for lunch or dinner try Light House Grill at The Landing Shopping Center at the foot of the Honey Creek Bridge on Hwy 10 going south out of Grove. The Light House Grill has food for all tastes you will enjoy. I like the pecan crusted chicken salad. The mashed potatoes and chicken fried steak are another favorite of many.
For Mexican food, I would go downtown to La Casita De Hoovers just west of 3rd and main street. Here you will find authentic Mexican food that will really hit the spot. Shrimp and fish tacos are a favorite here. I don’t think you will go wrong with any entry on this menu.
The Rib Crib on main street is the favorite place for good barbeque with a chopped barbeque beef topped with hot links a wonderful choice. Of course, if you like ribs, this is the place to be also.
Royal Bay, at the base of Sailboat Bridge at the north entrance to Grove is a dinner spot you will enjoy. Steaks, seafood, and chicken will be found to delight you.
My Place at the intersection of hwys 59/125 is rustic looking but the food is out of this world with great barbeque, hamburgers, steak, fish or about anything you might want.
On Monkey Island, I would go to Shebangs for food and fun with fish, pasta, or pizza items on the menu and selections from casual to elegant, this is a great place to enjoy the evening dining with family or friends.
The Roadhouse is my favorite for steak on the entire Grand Lake area. The salad with blue cheese crumbles and french dressing is great and a just right baked potatoe to go with the meal. You might also enjoy the cocunut shrimp or one of their nightly specials here also.
Teramiranda Resort cafe is nice to dine in or on the deck if the day is pretty and look at the water. You can enjoy burgers, sandwiches, breakfast all day, or I like their grilled shrimp on a stick over rice with the salad bar.
The Artichoke on hwy 82 just north of Langley is a favorite on South Grand Lake for steaks and seafood or chicken for nightly dining.
Pensacola Pizza and Pasta just before the Grand Lake dam in Langley is a nice spot for lunch or dinner. They have pasta and pizza out of this world along with a good sampling of all kinds of good food. They also will deliver to the boat docks by the dam if you wish to pick up by boat.
There are more great places to eat including for members the Cherokee and Arrowhead Yacht Clubs. So the next time you think Grand Lake especially for fall and winter think Grand Dining and visit one of the above choices. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
