This is the kind of legit food that you're not going to find at those places with proprietary birthday songs. No. There's nothing in the Clarkston Union Bar & Kitchen that isn't thoroughly real. The oak. The pews. The stained glass. The beers. The dressings. The tattoos on the servers (you do not want to try to rub one off). It's all about delivering the real, the coarse and the authentic in a world that is often only packaged to deliver food as honest as this. It started as a promise to dish out the kind of handcrafted grub that you'd have expected to find on Main Street back in the day when parking lots had horse posts in them.

This is a restaurant that was built on the cornerstone of authentic American comfort, served up one cheese-strewn noodle at a time in a hot dish that bubbles up a chorus of a thousand Michigan memories. OK, we're getting a little out of hand there; but when it comes to Mac & Cheese, digging deep comes naturally to us. Why? Because it's the stuff of legend. It's that rare combination of the totally expected and the happily surprised. And it's what you'll find at an 1840's church on Main Street in Clarkston, Michigan. Please make yourself at home.
