Although better known for its outdoor recreation and lively arts and music scene, Muskegon also boasts a thriving dining scene. From the acclaimed cuisine at the long-standing Hearthstone restaurant, to new additions like Rebel Pies and its unique craft pizzas, we round up this Michigan city’s best local restaurants.
With its quirky, former gas station location and a reputation for serving some of the area’s best-loved burgers, The Station Grill is certainly one of Muskegon’s most fun dining destinations. This place is the place to go for juicy gourmet burgers and ice-cold beer, along with a number of Tex-Mex-inspired dishes and its award-winning chili. Guests can choose from options like the carnival burger topped with grilled onions, green peppers and mozzarella cheese, or the California burger with Swiss cheese and spicy guacamole.

Rebel Pies attracts a loyal clientele for its unique craft pizzas. Chef Jeremy Bonjernoor sources locally grown ingredients to craft creative signature pies like the Meat Sweats (topped with red sauce, three-cheese blend, pepperoni, gyro meat, prosciutto, roasted chicken, bacon, smoked brisket and Sriracha) and the Thai-One-On (with sweet Thai chili-peanut sauce, chicken, cheese, shredded carrot, red cabbage, green onion, black sesame seeds and fresh cilantro). Wash it all down with a craft beer or two from Muskegon’s Unruly Brewing Company.
