On Deck at the Boone Docks
By Ross Boissoneau
People in Glen Arbor know where to go for the action. And for twigs and a brush pile too.
Those are actually two of the items on the woodsy-themed menu at Boone Docks. If the twigs (toasted black bean spring rolls) or brush pile (French fries with bacon, cheese and tomatoes) arent for you, then maybe youd prefer the battered bear toes (mozzarella sticks), or a pile of wood chips (a.k.a. nachos).
That woodsy theme extends to the décor, with knotty pine and stone predominant in the friendly, casual interior.
And if youre looking for live music and a lively atmosphere, then the exterior is the place to be. You can join the revelry from the deck nightly in the summer.
Weve got live music every night, said Boone Docks owner Bob Ewing, between serving drinks and watching out for the little ones scurrying around the deck.
That combination lively music, festive food, and a family atmosphere encapsulates Ewings philosophy.
Were a fun, family restaurant, Ewing said. You look at the deck, and youll always have eight or ten kids running around.
Some places might not appreciate that, but thats what were all about. In some restaurants, the kids get antsy. We love it.
