A YEAR-ROUND BENZIE MAINSTAY
STEPS FROM BEAUTIFUL CRYSTAL LAKE
Established in 2000, The Roadhouse Mexican Bar & Grill is a year-round mainstay in Benzie County. Chef Miguel draws on his childhood in northern Mexico and love for its food to develop exclusive recipes that attract visitors and locals to dine at The Roadhouse again and again.
Located on US-31 at the top of the hill in Benzonia, Michigan the Roadhouse is just steps away from beautiful Crystal Lake. Our restaurant is easy to access from Crystal Mountain Resort, close to Frankfort on Lake Michigan and a short drive from Traverse City. Free parking is available on the street and in back of the restaurant.
Our cozy restaurant and newly renovated bar is open year-round for indoor dining. Returning guests are greeted by our friendly staff, ready to make every visit a great experience. The seasonal outdoor cantina offers a separate bar and expanded dining under the umbrellas, with acoustic music four nights a week.
We pride ourselves on fresh, not fast, food that is hand-prepared daily. We make our own salsa, fry our own chips, and use the freshest herbs and spices to assure that you experience some of the best-tasting food in northern Michigan. Our knowledgeable staff is there to guide you through dinner menu decisions or offer cocktail suggestions.
Looking for a way to take some Roadhouse home with you? You can find our fresh salsa in the deli section at Shop ’n’ Save in Benzonia and Honor Family Market.
The Roadhouse Mexican Bar & Grill and owner, Gretchen Bookeloo-Nahnsen was named 2017 Outstanding Business of the Year by the Benzie County Chamber of Commerce. We are proud to support the Benzie County community and honored by the recognition.
