Our Favorite Restaurants In Manson

There’s no excuse for eating poorly when on vacation at any of the Lake Chelan resorts. Indulging in sensational food should absolutely be part of your next Manson escape. If you want to relax, unwind, and not worry about cleaning dishes for a night, head to one of our favorite restaurants in Manson:

Lake Chelan Brewing Company
chelanbreweryWith its new 7-barrel brew system producing five house beers, Lake Chelan Brewing Company is the place to go for a cold beer. Or even better, try the beer sampler to taste them all. The Brewing Company is perfect if you’re looking for a relaxed atmosphere to kick back and pick out a record or watch a sports game on one of the big screens. They offer juicy burgers and sliders as well as a fabulous artichoke dip, but make sure you come hungry as the portions are huge!

Winemakers Grill at Wapato Point Cellars
WapatoPointCellarsWinemakers Grill offers fine dining and top-tier service with an elegant ambiance. You can choose to dine in the restaurant or on the outdoor patio by several weeping willows on their beautifully manicured grounds. There are no reservations, so arrive at opening, or better yet wait at the wine tasting bar to pick out the perfect wine for your dinner. Friday night is the local favorite, when they serve fried chicken that’s been marinated in buttermilk batter all day.

North Shore Café

Locals love its cute décor, charming atmosphere, and warm and friendly staff who go out of their way to provide fabulous service. Everyone raves about their coffee and homestyle breakfast – you can’t go wrong with their famous Eggs Benedict!

Definitely don’t miss the renowned “Man Candy” appetizer of deep fried hardwood bacon with maple-sweet chilli and chocolate dipping sauces that keep us locals going back for more. They also offer delicious daily specials every day of the week, our favorite being the Wednesday night beef kabobs.

Blueberry Hills
At warm and friendly family-run Blueberry Hills, you’ll get to pick your own blueberries (when in season) before indulging in Mom’s delicious homemade burgers, dips, waffles, fresh fruit pies, and more. With a relaxed and homey vibe, you’ll feel like you’re and grandma’s house as you sink your teeth into one of the famous burgers with blueberry mayo, enormous Dunlap breakfast, or 400 Mile French Dip (because people drive THAT far for it). Top it off with a slice of award-winning fresh fruit pie, or if you’d like to take a whole pie to go, don’t forget to order the day before.

Troy’s Pizza

For those who love pizza, Troy’s features gourmet wood-fired pizzas with hand-tossed crust and even offers an excellent gluten free option. For an alternative option, their menu includes tasty burgers, paninis, pasta, sandwiches, and even breakfast (try their breakfast burrito – it’s famous amongst Manson locals)!
