Hungry for an artisan sandwich and milkshake at the local ice cream parlor? Or maybe a slice of authentic Italian pizza or classic spaghetti and meatballs. Cocktails on a deck overlooking the sunset on White Lake might be nice. And perhaps a 50s inspired root beer float for dessert? You can take your pick because all of these amazing dining experiences are waiting for you just minutes from the Weathervane Inn!

The Montague and Whitehall area boasts some of the best dining in West Michigan. From a meal of hotdogs and fries at Dogs ’n Suds—a 1950s-style drive-in right across the street from our lakeside inn—to the fine dining experience of The Lakeside Inn, there’s something for everyone’s palate here.
