Jamesport is in a cool building with lots of nooks and crannies and really high ceilings.
The beer was of excellent brewpub quality. They had an alt and a dortmunder on, both of which were very nice, especially the dort.
Service was prompt, but I virtually had to beg to know which of their seasonals was on tap. A chalkboard or something would be very helpful at a place like this.
Selection was really good, solid English and German style beers.
Food was very good, particularly the fish, albeit a bit pricey. I mean, they're on the friggin lake, fish should be more reasonably priced.
Beer was a great value, food was a bit higher than reasonable. But maybe I'm just a cheapass.

We were on vacation in Ludington last week and stopped in here four times! I like the atmosphere of the place, the bar more so than than the dining room. It's in an old building like I think a brewpub should be.

I think I had almost all of their beers during our visits, by far the best one was the smoked porter. It smelled just like Schenkerla! Took me back to Bamberg. The Alt and the IPA were also good, I found the Kolsch to be a bit lacking. The other beers were all decent but nothing outstanding.

When I go to Michigan, I love to eat Lake Perch since I can't get it in St.Louis. Jamesport's was very good with a decent portion and excellent tarter sauce.

This place is worth a visit if you're in the area.

Wow a brew pub that is located in an old building that once held a old type buisness. Sorry, it just seems this is the plan for many brew pubs. This place is located just blocks from Lake Michigan and draws many tourists in the area. Slightly above average food quality and just average beer. I think they had about 6 beers on tap when I was there. Nothing outstanding but a decent place to stop for something to eat and drink if you are close by. This is a restaurant first and brewry second in my opinion.

Nice bar area with a decent number of tv's. Dining area was small, but comfortable.

Had about 10 beers on tap. I tried the IPA, Nitro Stout, and Raspberry Weiss. I would say that all were slightly above average.

We started in the bar area for happy hour, then moved to the dining area for dinner. Both servers were friendly and fairly knowledgeable about their beer.

All the food we ordered was good, with the lake perch being very good.

Overall, a really good place to check out if you are on vacation in this part of Michigan.

This is a small brewpub/restaurant in the touristy town of Ludington, MI (all the other patrons appeared to be out-of-towners as well). We sat outside on the patio that somewhat overlooked the harbor (it wasn't ON the harbor but close enough to see it). The bar looked very nice too. The beer here was ok - there were maybe 6 taps and most of them were your basic styles. The food was decent (I got a cherry pecan salad) but there is an extensive menu. Overall, it was a nice place to chill with a pint and some food.

Stopped here after hearing from some grand rapids locals that it existed. My fiance and I had a few of their beers and lunch.

The beers were great, not to hopy which one may or may not like. I had their hefeweizen, which had a nice balance of sweet and malt with that great golden wheat color. My fiance had a blueberry beer which teased the tongue with a subtle hint of blueberry. The food matched the beers in great taste. They have a build your own burger option, so I had a burger with their porter glaze, pepper jack cheese and jalapenos. Delicious. The Fiance had blackened perch on foccacia which was great then and leftover.

After enjoying the beers, we headed a couple blocks away to the city park and had a beautiful nap on the beach.

I would definitely recommend going if you are in the area!

after thought- I graded the service low, because I think our server was new. She was slow. But A different server handling the tables around us was definitely on point.
