Lauded as "a destination worth discovering" by Tour Lake St. Clair, Tryst Food and Spirits entices diners to its waterfront eatery with heaping portions of seafood and steak-house-style cuisine. Chefs pair calamari with homemade amogio sauce, adorn charbroiled, 20-ounce rib eyes with sautéed mushrooms, and top homemade ricotta gnocchi with homemade meat sauce. Guests can enjoy their meals in a glass-walled dining room with stunning lake views, upon a spacious three-tiered patio deck, or at an outdoor tiki bar right on the waterfront. An outdoor stage hosts frequent live entertainment, while a fire pit keeps guests toasty until 1 a.m. every Wednesday through Saturday. Along with Tryst's roomy parking lot, the docking area's 26 deep-water wells accommodate boats or saddled marlin anywhere from 15 to 50 feet in size.
The cooks at Dan Good Pizza understand that everybody has their own favorite style of pizza, so they load their menu with seemingly limitless options. They start with a base of five crust varieties: thin and crispy flatbread, hand tossed traditional, round or square pan pizzas, Chicago-style deep dish, or gluten-free. They then decorate the dough canvas with sauces and any combination of their 34 toppings. Tried-and-true creations come in the form of specialty pies, including the Mediterranean, which is topped with spinach, red onion, marinated tomatoes and feta cheese. To complement their pizzas, they offer cheddar and bacon bread sticks with a garlic and herb cream cheese spread and jumbo bone in butter-parmesan and jamaican-jerk wings, which come by the piece for convenient sampling.
