I will be in northern Michigan this weekend. Any restaurant suggestions in Alpena or Rogers City?

    It's been years since I was there, so don't hate me if these are no longer good...

    In Alpena, Al's Diner used to have excellent, simple, cheap lunches.

    In Rogers City, The Pavilion Grill was always pretty good (used to be owned by a friend's parents, don't know if they're still there or not).

      The place I was going to try was not open, so after consulting with a local, I went to Kelly's 2nd Venture Inn was on 23, just south of Roger's City. A small town bar serving inexpensive good food. I had
      their only fresh fish, deep fried Walleye. Pretty good, as was the clam chowder that was the soup of the day.

        In June 2002 I had the fortune of discovering Lud's Hamburgers in Alpena, at 1223 State Street (US 23) south of downtown. It is on the west side of the street. The restaurant is on the Web at .

        I even have a shirt from there!

          Not a restaurant, but there's a great meat market in Roger's City called Plath's They do a big mail order business for their bacon and smoked porl loins. Well worth a stop or an order.
