The Breezy Point Bar & Grill Sep 16, 2008
You don't need a boat to get to the Breezy Point Bar & Grill but if you have one, you can. When I approached by kayak, its portable dock rested on-shore and the waters were rocky and shallow so if you do arrive by boat it might be wise to check on conditions beforehand. Otherwise, the Breezy is located about two miles north of Ford River on Michigan Highway M-35 and three miles south of the Delta County Airport in Escanaba.
Its sprawling grounds slope to the Lake Michigan shore with a nice view of Portage Point and the distant Stonington Peninsula. The spacious yard has a large wooden platform where bands play on weekends (weather permitting), several picnic tables, a small gazebo for DJs, and plenty of grassy grounds to mingle or dance under starry skies or enjoy a fine casual meal on sunny afternoons.
The roomy building has a dozen or so island tables and a full bar that overlooks the lake. The menu lists a wide variety of home-cooked meals and chalkboards announce daily specials. The atmosphere is country and its friendly staff make it a popular spot for locals and visitors alike. Whether passing through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan by land or water, the Breezy Point Bar & Grill will make for a memorable stop.
