When the weather's cold, treating yourself to American fare like a burger, bowl of homemade soup, or tasty sandwich hits the spot. A variety of Midland restaurants — with food ranging from simple but delicious to more elevated flavors — are available for you to choose from.
Our REALTORS® suggest trying the following Midland restaurants:
- Aster - 134 Ashman St., Midland, MI 48640
Aster brings farm-to-table seasonal dishes to downtown Midland with a delicately crafted style. You'll find elevated American fare on the menu with dishes like Fried Chicken and Johnny Cakes, which comes with brined deep-fried chicken, bacon cornmeal pancakes, pickled Fresno salad, and radish. And if you like seafood, you'll want to try the whitefish prepared with lentils, pumpkin puree, winter berries, and fermented apple.
- Diamond Jim's - 101 E. Main St., Midland, MI 48640
Family-owned and managed Diamond Jim's serves American cuisine in a relaxing, friendly atmosphere. Burgers, salads, soups, sandwiches, and pasta dishes are all on the menu, so you're sure to find multiple dishes to love. The Original Ollie Burger is the restaurant's top-selling burger, and it's grilled with Ollie's special seasoning and topped with melted mozzarella and a secret sauce. Customers also crave the Kentucky Hot Brown — thinly sliced turkey on toast, covered in a rich mornay sauce, and topped with tomato and smoked bacon before it's baked and served hot.
- Lanny's Restaurant - 4312 N. Saginaw Rd., Midland, MI 48640
Classic American food, great hospitality, and a comfortable family restaurant environment are all on the menu at Lanny's Restaurant. Dishes aren't very fancy, but they're delicious and comforting. Stop by for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and try the build-your-own omelet, or warm up with the hot beef sandwich, which is served with mashed potatoes and topped with gravy and comes with your choice of coleslaw or cottage cheese on the side.
- Alex's Railside Restaurant - 6800 Eastman Ave. Suite E500, Midland, MI 48642
Originally located in Sanford, Alex's Railside Restaurant made the move to Midland, where it continues to serve up tasty breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes. For breakfast, the customer favorite is the Country Fried Steak and Eggs, which comes topped with sausage gravy and with your choice of potato and toast on the side. Customers also love the breaded perch for lunch or dinner, and it can be ordered grilled or fried.
- The Wheel House - An American Grill - 2909 Bay City Rd., Midland, MI 48642
The Wheel House - An American Grill has a large menu of favorites that will please almost any diner. Try Captain Dave's Kickin' Clam Chowder or a bowl of Roadhouse Chili, which is housemade and mildly flavored. If you have a big appetite, go for the Captain Burger, made with a half-pound of 100% certified Angus beef. It comes topped with lettuce, tomato, and red onion, and you can also add cheese, bacon, or mushrooms if you'd like.
- Midland Burger Company - 6800 Eastman Ave., Midland, MI 48642
As its slogan says, the burgers at Midland Burger Company are locally sourced and creatively crafted. When you order a burger, you're supporting local farmers and will appreciate its freshness. Local suppliers supply beef to the restaurant, and its buns come from local bakeries. Even the toppings are farmers-market fresh. And if you have specific dietary needs or preferences, you'll appreciate the gluten-free bun and Impossible Burger options.
