Pumps on 12: Quality food on the east end
A wonderful stop for lunch. It reminds you of the early days of American travel. Well, that might be a bit early for most travelers today, but the food is excellent. A wonderful atmosphere that provide a feeling of comfort and class in a very casual setting. Don't be put off by the oversized 1920's (wooden) gas pump out front, it's a class eating establishment, not a gas station.
Favorite Dish: I've only been once, but have heard from many people about their meal. There doesn't seem to be a bad item on the menu.
Smokey's Southern Barbeque: Good place to eat in the east end
Pleasant restaurant set along side US 20. It's convenient, pleasant and one of a few places in the east side of the lakeshore to get a meal.
Favorite Dish: Any of the Pulled Pork meals/sandwiches
