Stopping into Pesto’s will bring you a wide selection of food that will leave you happy and full. To start, they offer soup and gumbo, with a delicious cheese-crusted French Onion being the star of the show. If you are in the mood for a sandwich, there is a large selection to choose from like the Pesto Slammer, Vegetarian Greek, Cleopatra, or Turkey Georgia Reuben. Maybe you’re in the mood for one of their pizzas? Or you may prefer an order of Sirloin Pesto Meatballs, Hurricane Chicken, or any other entrée. Whatever you choose you’ll enjoy. With delicious food and a laid-back atmosphere, Pesto’s is a place you’ll return to repeatedly.

The Draft Sports Bar & Grille offers a perfect place for going out with friends for a bite and a brew. Featuring their Draft Patio where you can take advantage of the warmer months with games of cornhole, Connect 4, or perhaps a game of giant Jenga.  Inside, they have 16 beers on tap and make all their meals by scratch. Stop in for the big games and grab a sandwich, a burger, one of their sharables, or maybe just a pizza. Try your hand at building your own mac & cheese, get some fish and chips, or tuck in with some chicken and waffles.

The Country Carriage House offers the humble atmosphere of a local diner with food that sets it far apart. You can see their dedication to their customers and their craft with the quality of their meals. Stop in for breakfast that comes heaped on the plate hot and fresh featuring pancakes, eggs, waffles, French toast, or some good old biscuits and gravy. For lunch or dinner, you can get one of their burgers, seafood, ribs, chicken, steak, or prime rib. Whatever meal you choose, you can’t lose.

Jan’s Bar is the sort of bar that you see on television – where everyone knows one another, and you’re treated like an old friend. They offer a full stock of drinks, comfortable surroundings, and the sort of comfort food you can only find in a good bar. Burgers, fish and chips, pulled pork sandwiches, tacos, and sloppy joes will all leave you full and satisfied. Stop in for the perfect meal and time spent with friends and a cold drink.

Jamie’s Place has down-home food that is timeless and unforgettable. It will be hard to resist their hearty breakfast and you’ll be happy if you don’t. Later in the day, you can stop in for a Polish kraut dog, a bowl of chicken noodle soup, a Western burger, or maybe their homemade mac & cheese. Be treated to a simple, delicious meal that will make you think of your favorite family dish from years gone by.

These are a handful of the many great options you have on a stop through Swartz Creek, but there are so many more if you still haven’t found what you were looking for. If you are in the mood for Mexican, you can stop by El Potrero, offering authentic cuisine that will take you on a brief trip south of the border.
