Do hidden gems exist in Mid-Michigan? (No worthy stops en route up north.)

Thinking a little outside of the box, do any of the country or golf clubs have decent menus? Michigan is home to some incredible destination golf courses, you'd think a couple of them would have cuisine to match, yes?

It's relatively easy to find good food in Metro Detroit, Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor and around the up north destinations like Traverse City and Petoskey. But when traveling between those locations, the options seem incredibly bleak. Are there ANY creative or worthy restaurants or dives in Mid-Michigan? Outside of the Laundry and Crust bakery in Fenton (which are both incredible), there seems to be nothing worthy of a stop on the 4hr trip north from SE Michigan. Ditto if you're making the 3hr hike north from Grand Rapids. An option or two along the way would make those long weekend drives so much more bearable.

Anything new up north (Charlevoix, Petoskey, Indian River)? v 2013

tokyo,

Thank you for the great response! Is Palette better than Twisted Olive? Bummed to hear that American Spoon didn't live up to expectations -- the menu and pictures of their Facebook page had me really excited to try it.

Anything in Charlevoix? There's a deli called Gurney's in Harbor Springs, is it that great?

Never been! We'll be hopping around from friends and family homes in Charlevoix to Petoskey and finally Sunday night in Indian River. With the weather looking dismal, there should be plenty of time to explore a few restaurants. So far I have:

- American Spoon cafe and Pallette, both in Petoskey
- Roquette Burger Bistro, Charlevoix

Help appreciated!
