The Bear Lake Tavern, referred to as the Muskegon BLT is known for its perch dinner and massive burgers. Their burgers weigh in at almost a pound each (3/4) and are guaranteed to fill even the biggest of bellies!
BLT Muskegon is located on a channel that connects Bear Lake to Muskegon Lake, then onto Lake Michigan and is the perfect place to dock your boat and fill up with food and drinks.
There is a hometown feeling to the tavern that puts one at ease the minute you walk through the door and staff are as friendly as they get.
The Bear Lake Tavern is once again under new ownership. Restaurant Partners, Inc. purchased the BLT and also own Alleyways (home of the deep fried burger) and made a number of changes. We visited the tavern soon after it opened and the food was good and the manager was on top of everything making sure the service was top notch.
I always say, the best restaurants always seem to be the establishments where then owner is personally involved. Although I didn’t see the owners running the shop, the manager had a handle on everything and after talking with him, found that he was just as concerned with the successful operation as the owner would be; it is more than just a job to him, something you don’t usually find. The Bear Lake Tavern has great food and great service; stop by Muskegon’s BLT and test them out for yourself, the price is right and you’ll love the food!
BLT used to offer free wireless service and I’m unaware if that service is still available.
If you see a sign that says 4gr8food on a billboard, that would be Restaurant Partners, Inc promoting their tavern.
