Although lobster mac ’n’ cheese has been popping up in various establishments around the area, the lobster mac you’ll find at Riverhouse Inn is hands-down the best. With long, thick noodles, a perfectly creamy sauce and just the right amount of fresh spices, the mac ’n’ cheese here is a far cry from what you’re used to. While seafood is their specialty (with everything from salmon cakes to shrimp pasta), the menu is ripe with other options. If wings are your thing, be sure to try out the variety of sauces they offer here.

Spag's Bar & Grill
1268 E. Grand River Rd., Williamston, MI 48895
