Wheatberry Restaurant & Tavern


Shrimp po’boy and mac and cheese

It’s hard for me to believe that I haven’t yet written a post about Wheatberry Restaurant and Tavern in Buchanan, Michigan. It’s one of my favorite places to go in the area for a delicious lunch or dinner in a trendy, yet casual environment. While I enjoy many of the items on Wheatberry’s extensive menu of small plates, sandwiches, salads and entrees, it is hands-down my favorite place in the area to get barbecue. The slow-smoked, free-range barbecue chicken as well as the pulled pork are awesome. Pair them with sides of macaroni and cheese and sweet potato fries and I’m in heaven. The garlic fries are also excellent. End your meal with the Michigan Blueberry Crumble or the Texas Sheet Cake.

Wheatberry is constantly hosting special events. Last week was Lobster Fest and nearly everyone in the restaurant was eating the lobster special. Since I’m not a lobster fan, I enjoyed a yummy shrimp po’boy. I also love that they bring you a plate of cornbread when you sit down and they have an awesome beer menu.

Wheatberry is located in a beautifully wooded area along the St. Joseph River on Red Bud Trail, just north of Buchanan. It’s about a 25 minute drive from South Bend. You need to go!
