There are just some nights where you are out late due to long work days with lots of traveling, meetings, conferences or you’re just coming home from the game. The best part of these nights is finding a place that stays open late where you can grab a bite to eat or pick up a take-out order. These are the ones that are located in mid-Michigan.
The Wheel Inn
The Wheel Inn is located on US-27 in St. Johns, Michigan. The Wheel Inn is open 24 hours every day. The menu varies from full dinners to side sandwiches to the breakfast menu. There are always daily specials on the board. And, if you have a sweet tooth, try my favorite which is one of their cinnamon rolls.
The Hitching Post
The Hitching Post restaurant is located on North US-27 outside of St. Johns, Michigan. The Hitching Post is open 24 hours on Friday and Saturday nights. The menu has many different items to pick. One of my favorites is the Cod dinner which is known as the Belly Buster. They are also willing to serve breakfast at any time of the day for those customers who work different shifts.
The Legends Diner is located inside of the Soaring Eagle Casino. Legends Diner is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The dinner menu has burgers, sandwiches and delicious desserts such as banana splits. Legends Diner serves a breakfast menu from 3 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily. The Legends Diner is sit down only, they do not provide take out. You can find out more information on the website.
The Whitehouse restaurant is located in Clare, Michigan which is the perfect stop for those who are traveling up north for the weekend. The Whitehouse is 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The menu varies from a spinach and feta omelet to a double bacon cheese burger with all the fixings including jalapeno cheese. They even serve friend pickles which sound yummy. The small restaurant has an old school charm to the establishment which has been in business since 1935. I love long standing restaurants that have history.
There are also franchise fast food restaurants in the area that stay open late. These are good if you just want to hit the drive thru on your way home. Like many restaurants, you should call ahead to see if the establishment is open at the time you will be traveling.
