Restaurants keep coming and going…a lot of my favorite ones have closed down and I miss ‘em! Some establishments were closed due to Michigans statewide smoking ban, others for different reasons entirely.

I used to dig goin’ to the Big Boy just north of Frandor…
and the Imperial Gardens in Okemos…
and the Traveler’s Club
Whaling Station
Mountain Jack’s
White Castle, and others.

Other favorites of local residents include:
Jim’s Tiffany
The Pour House
Don’s Truck Stop (dug it!)
Bill Knapp’s
Sweetwater Wharf (later Jambalaya’s)

How ‘bout ‘choo? Which closed restaurants do YOU wish were still around?
