*OUR SUGGESTIONS FOR DINNER IN THE AREA ON FRIDAY NIGHT
In Beaverton, there’s Juicy Bone on Dale Road. In town on M-18, there’s the new Smokin’ Bob-B-Que and new A&W. The Doherty in Clare is our favorite place!
The Riverwalk Grill and Piper’s Pub in Gladwin are both great choices. You’ll find just about any kind of restaurant you like if you’re staying in Midland.
