Specializing in everything from steaks to shellfish, the dockside-themed Great Lakes Shipping Company has been a Grand Rapids favorite for more than 30 years. Red brick walls embellished with photos and prints of lakefront scenes, along with strategically-positioned fireplaces, combine to foster a relaxing, almost homey setting. House specials include Atlantic salmon, prime rib, fried walleye, or prime rib. A patio dining area, open in the summer, offers an attractive option for those seeking to escape the crowds.
