$6 Tavern Sangria 


      Tavern on the River is on the St. Joseph River - actually the Morrison Channel - in St. Joseph, Michigan.  Look across the channel and see the boats being put-in & out, paddlers, and wildlife on the water or view it all from our comfortable dining area.  The bar/dining area originally was a bait and tackle shop for the charter boats that docked riverside. Now, you sit on the dock right over the water where fishermen unloaded their catches.  But, the real story starts way back in the 19th century:

     The Mollhagen family settled on this very site in 1853.  The two-story structure was built in the 1800s and is currently used for storage.  Four generations of Mollhagens fished Lake Michigan for almost 140 years.  In 2002 the tackle shop and charter docks were transformed into a bar and restaurant.  Eat on the 100-year old dock the Mollhagens used for their fishing operations.  The ducks and rather large fish who frequent the place are a hit w/the kids.
