Mike's on the Water
Mike's on the Water was opened in 2011 by Michael LeFevre in the old clapboard bathhouse in Michigan Harbor on Nautical Mile. When Mike first saw the building in 2010 it was love at first sight. "I said "burger bar," LeFevre recalls. It reminded him of the East Coast and Key West, a theme he has cultivated inside and out. Mike’s on the Water began with a bar, some booths and additional tables in a three-season patio. Over the years an outside deck bar was built, offering grilled food outside so as to not overload Mike’s small kitchen. Boat Wells so boaters can pull right up the Mikes. In 2017 a Roof Top Deck Bar was added offering views of Lake St Clair.
As for entertainment Mike's features one or two-man bands performing what LeFevre calls “Jimmy Buffett-style" music.
