Michigan Brewers Guild founding member and B.O.B.'s Brewery brewmaster John Svoboda has a passion for crafting batches of flavorful Michigan-made beer. At the brewpub, friendly servers dole out frosty drafts of specialty beers such as Robert the Barrel bourbon-barrel ale, Wit Rabbit Belgian wit, or the Full On IPA. Guests pair their mugs of ale with hearty gourmet pub fare such as smoked pork shoulder, Angus-beef hot dogs, and ale-battered onion rings, garnished with housemade mustards and hot sauces.

Brick walls and fireplaces surround the nautical-themed dining area of Great Lakes Shipping Co. Restaurant & Tavern. During warmer months, the casual steak and seafood house opens its large outdoor deck that allows diners to pair meals with the melodic tweets of nearby birds. Executive chef Thomas Verlin's menu showcases fresh lake catches such as breaded perch alongside oceanic fare such as Australian lobster and Alaskan king crab, often accented with simple sauces, pastas, and cue cards that let the entree speak for itself. Thomas also lassos hand-cut slices of prime rib, new york strip, and tenderloin fillets onto dinner plates and wrangles juicy burgers and sandwiches to satisfy lighter appetites.

Shining its spotlights on everything from live concerts to cage fights, the Orbit Room morphs to handle intimate concerts and packed dance parties alike. A two-tiered design lends ample room for more than 1,600 swaying fans or 800 three-legged racers, with an open ground floor and loge resting below a seated balcony. Five bars adorn the two floors, quenching fans' thirst before they hop into the mosh pit or stretch their legs in the balcony.
