Mussel Beach is a long-time establishment here in Bay City. Inside dining is limited, food is great. Close to walking/biking trails and the State Park.

My husband and I came here to grab ice cream quick after we went to the beach. Great service and so many options to choose from! We need to come back and try the food sometime because I heard the burgers are delicious!
