The Catch and Cook Program

The Landmark Inn will be collaborating with the Day Break Charter fishing guides to offer a unique opportunity titled “Catch and Cook”. Participants will take part in a chartered fishing excursion, after which the Day Break Charter crew will transport the catch to the Landmark Inn to be prepared by their renowned chefs. The fishing adventures include offshore fishing trips to the famous Stannard Rock which is about 60 miles off shore from Marquette.  If you are more interested in fishing closer to shore  there is also the opportunity to fish for species such as Lake Trout, King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Steelhead, and Brown Trout. The beauty of the Marquette area surrounds you and fish are usually found within 5 miles of shore. All fishing tackle and gear is provided for you with every trip and your catch will be cleaned and packed for you upon arrival to land. Read More

Heading to the Beach? Stop at Coco’s!

Marquette has lots of great restaurants. Some occupy prime locations, whether at a key intersection downtown or a highly visible plot on Highway 41. But few have what Coco’s has — a truly world-class location opposite Marquette’s most popular beach, and great food to boot. Let’s see why Coco’s has become a Marquette institution in the few short years since its opening.

What a Location!

Coco’s is located on Lakeshore Boulevard, just across from Shiras Park and Picnic Rocks. As you might imagine, the restaurant is super-popular during the summer months, especially on warm, sunny days that beg for a trip to the beach. Fortunately, Coco’s is a pretty casual place, so it’s not uncommon to see folks in beach skirts and towels making their way through the parking lot. What better way to get out of the sun for an hour and refresh with a light meal and/or an expertly crafted cocktail?

Even if you’re not pairing your Coco’s experience with a trip to the beach, this restaurant is super-easy to get to. Just take Lakeshore Boulevard north from Washington Street or south from Wright Street. It’s easy to reach by bike, too, via the multi-use trail that runs along the lakeshore.

What’s on the Menu?

Coco’s is open from morning until late night, so you can get pretty much anything you want here. For breakfast, try the buttermilk hot cakes, corned beef & hash, or breakfast crepe. Come lunchtime, rock a Greek salad, California turkey sandwich, or any of the paninis on the right side of the menu. For dinner, tuck into a heartier burger plate. The Jack Daniels, mushroom Swiss, and Southwestern burgers are all fan favorites. Oh, and Coco’s caters too! If you’re planning a big get-together or event in Marquette, keep them in mind.

Don’t Forget the Drinks

Like many a beachfront restaurant, Coco’s caters to folks looking to relax and unwind with a flavorful drink. It has one of the most comprehensive drink menus in the city of Marquette, including many classic cocktails that aren’t readily available elsewhere. Here’s a small sampling:

  • Cream drinks like the Banshee and Grasshopper
  • Rum drinks (it’s the beach, after all!) like Cuba Libre and the Brass Monkey
  • Whiskey drinks like the Rob Roy and Manhattan
  • Vodka drinks like the Bloody Mary and Greyhound

Coco’s also has a formidable array of shooters, from the Alabama Slammer to the Purple Hooter. Unless you’re a regular at beach bars, chances are good you’ll find a few unfamiliar ones here.

When to Visit

Coco’s opens at 11 on weekdays and 8 on the weekends, typically closing at 9 PM. Weekend afternoons and evenings tend to be busiest, especially during the warm season, though Sunday breakfast is popular as well. If you’re planning on heading to the beach, consider eating a light lunch here beforehand. You can always return for dinner!
