Do you like Cajun food? Then go to Pasche's Seafood Kitchen next to the new Firekeeper's casino between Battle Creek and Marshall. When was the last time you had jambalaya, crawfish e'toufee, fried oysters, gumbo, blackened catfish or a po'boy sandwich? Try the crawfish bisque with some cornbread. How about some cajun shrimp, crabcakes or some alligator tail meat! Or do you like dirty rice or red beans and rice? Bread pudding for dessert and you have all the makings of several great meals. Don't miss this one. Do not let the attachment to the hotel fool you. This is a very good restaurant

Portage has a great treasure in the West Lake Drive-In. Some say they have the best burgers around. My favorite is the olive burger. I also like the perch sandwich. Get a milk shake and a burger and watch the sun set over West Lake. They are now open for the season and are packed most nice days. My wife likes the unique grilled cheese which is on an inside out hamburger bun. They have real onion rings and good fries. Take the whole family. They do have a picnic table if you want to get out of the car. Check the guide for details and get there early! Also, let me know what you think of the burgers.

Some say this is the best burger around! You have to try the North Shore Inn in Benton Harbor. Others say they have the best mexican food. I have never had a better chile relleno anywhere. I have even gone here for a lunch burger, went to play golf and came back for a mexican dinner after golf. This place is hard to find, but worth it. They also have limited hours and do not have the mexican food all the time. Check the guide for details. If you go for the food rather than the decor, this place will be a favorite. They also have Old Style on tap.
