Barrel Back Restaurant

This incredible eatery will impress you, not only with the view of Walloon Lake but with the extent and breadth of the food and drink menus, as well. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week, there’s not a time of day that you won’t enjoy the experience here. The food is so special because of the wood-fired oven, grill and rotisserie smoker, which create dishes that are outstanding in both flavor and quality. This family-friendly restaurant has a lot to offer, so be sure to stop in on your way through Walloon Lake.

That French Place

At That French Place, you will be delighted to find crêpes akin to the ones you would buy at a crêpe stand in

the streets of Paris. Though you sit and enjoy your crêpe on-site, the crêpe cones in which we serve them are designed to allow you to stroll through town, to the park or the beach while savoring this authentic French fare. You will find more than just a sweet snack here, you might also really enjoy one of their savory crêpe choices such as spinach, mushroom & feta, and bacon, egg & cheese. Plus, the coffee at this spot is a hit as well, so be sure to stop in for a pick-me-up on your way through Charlevoix, Michigan!
