Lakeside Bowl rolls out a smorgasbord of family fun with 16 lanes snaking past a restaurant, lounge, and 18-hole outdoor mini golf course. Quartets don alley-appropriate footwear before sending globes careening down pristine sphereways during a duo of athletic showdowns. An automatic scoring system tallies strikes and spares, freeing competitors from calculating totals via pen and paper or trying to find a signal for WiFi-ready abacuses. Refuel launching arms with a large deluxe pizza crafted amid the casual restaurant's cerulean walls and suspended TVs, or sink like a sentient anchor into the lounge's homey booths, nestled between emerald walls and a timber-topped bar.
Boasting a robust menu of quick, classic, and fresh fare, Railroad Cafe’s historic home in the renovated Pere Marquette Depot welcomes visitors into a warm, wood-accented eatery.

Situated in a quaint building in downtown Niles, 3rd Street Pizzeria bears a name that makes it an easy find for dine-in and carry-out orders and a menu that features hot subs, specialty pizzas, and stuffed calzones.

Though they're a long way from Europe, the winemakers at Hickory Creek Winery draw inspiration from the centuries-old spirit of crafting European-style wines. The locally grown grapes are crushed and pressed before making their way to steel tanks or French oak barrels, eventually emerging as semi-dry riesling, cabernet franc, or a zero-oak chardonnay?just to name a few of the wide variety of styles.
