Marquette, Michigan is a cute tourist/college town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Sitting on the shore of mighty Lake Superior, it’s a destination for outdoor activities during summer and winter alike.

1. Border Grill

Border Grill has become somewhat of a Marquette legend for its delicious Tex-Mex cuisine. They have a delicious tomato-based spicy orange salsa – aptly named Border Salsa – that is to die for. Apart from that, literally everything they make is good! Try their burritos, tacos, quesadillas, or salads – you won’t be disappointed.

2. Rice Paddy

Another Marquette institution, the Rice Paddy, serves up homemade Thai food out of a little building on Presque Isle Ave. If you’re looking for a cheap and flavorful meal, this is the place to go.

If you are on social media at all, you may have seen the below meme floating around – it’s about The Rice Paddy! The “little old lady” owner and founder Aoy recently retired, but the restaurant continues to crank out delicious food.

NOTE: The Rice Paddy DOES NOT accept credit cards. They only accept cash and local checks, so make sure to be prepared before you order.

3. Jean Kay’s

I couldn’t make a list of takeout food in Marquette without including pasties! Personally, I don’t like them (move along) but obviously, they’re a huge thing in the UP. If you’re visiting or are new to the area, pasties are kind of like a hand-held casserole. It’s a pocket of beef, potatoes, onions, and rutabaga wrapped up in a delicious savory flour crust. They’re often dipped in ketchup, gravy, or topped with hot sauce.

In addition to homemade pasties, Jean Kay’s offers subs, salads, wraps, gyros, and giant baked desserts that are perfect for a picnic or dinner when you just don’t feel like cooking.

Current hours (as of 7/13/21):
Monday – Friday 11am – 9pm
Saturday – Sunday 11am – 8pm

4. Togo’s

Togo’s is my favorite hometown sandwich shop in Marquette! They have many satisfying subs, both hot and cold, that are definitely my top pick to bring with you on any outdoor adventure. My family grew up on the family-sized #16 on wheat (no tomatoes per mom’s request!).

Their bread is baked daily, and they have 4 sizes of subs ranging from 3 inches up to 24 inches. In addition to their classic pre-built sub options, they also offer a “make your own” menu where you can pick what you want on your sandwich.

5. The Pasta Shop

The Pasta Shop offers fresh homemade pasta made daily, ready to take home in only 15-20 minutes! This is a great option when you don’t want to go out for ~fancy~ Italian food, but still want the comfort of cheesy, saucy carb-loaded goodness.

My favorite dish is the Spaghetti Bread – yes, that’s garlic bread topped with saucy spaghettie and melted cheese, yum. But, you truly can’t go wrong with anything else on the menu – like spaghetti, gnocchi, lasagna, tortellini, or a delicious Italian sandwich.

6. Third Street Bagel

Yes, it’s a bagel shop – but you can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Third Street Bagel. In addition to their bagels that are scrumptious just plain or with cream cheese, they offer hot and cold sandwiches, soup and salad.

One of my favorite traditions as a kid was getting bagels and cream cheese from Third Street after church on Sundays. Toasted with butter, toasted with cream cheese, not toasted with nothing on it – you can’t go wrong with their bagels! Their sandwiches are absolutely delicious and filling for lunch, as well.

Current hours (as of 7/13/21):
Monday – Friday 6:30am – 4pm

7. Main Street Pizza

Pizza! You can never go wrong with ordering pizza. Main Street Pizza sells both single pizza slices and whole pies to go (there’s no room to sit anywhere, so plan on eating your slices elsewhere!). In addition to pizza, they have subs and nachos. I’ve never tried them, but according to some of the online reviews, the nachos are some of the best in town!

Their menu is pretty straightforward – no crazy pizza combinations here. But in my experience, simpler is better. There are two locations – one on 3rd St. in Marquette, and one out in Harvey.

Current hours (as of 7/13/21):
Monday – Thursday: 11am – 11pm
Friday – Saturday: 11am – 12am
Sunday: 12pm – 11pm

8. Rotations Deli

Rotations Deli is a newcomer to town. I personally haven’t actually had a chance to try their sandwiches yet, but word on the street is they’re worthy of making it on this list. This very small hole-in-the-wall location on South 3rd Street is run by one guy and he cranks out fresh-made deli sandwiches, tacos, and gyros.

Current hours (as of 7/13/21):
Monday – Friday 11am – 6pm

9. Aloha Grill

Another newcomer to Marquette is Aloha Grill. It’s authentic Hawaiian! I wish I would’ve known about this place the last time I visited home, because it looks absolutely wonderful. They are a bit “off the beaten path” on Washington Street in the basement of the Masonic Building. This means you can’t see their storefront from the street.

Aloha Grill offer authentic Hawaiian “plate style” BBQ, with options of several different flavored chicken, shrimp, or beef. In the summer time, they also have an additional location on 3rd Street selling shaved ice! The only downfall is their limited hours, so it might be best to plan your meal a little bit in advance.

10. Aubree’s Pizzeria

Although labeled a “pizzeria,” Aubree’s offers a lot more than just pizza! They have excellent salads, appetizers, and sandwiches as well. If you’re looking for well-made American or pub food to eat at home, I highly suggest ordering from Aubree’s.

Their pizza is great, too! As I mentioned above, Main Street doesn’t offer many irregular topping combos, but Aubree’s has a well-rounded selection of non-traditional toppings, such as their Tuscan Sun pizza or Spinach & Feta Pizza Rolls. Either way, whatever you decide to order from Aubree’s, you won’t be disappointed.

Current hours (as of 7/13/21):
