New restaurant prepped to open in Marquette

It looks like there's about to be a new place in Marquette for the foodies, tourists, and hungry Yoopers to hit -- the Iron Bay Restaurant & Drinkery.

If you're from the area or do much dining around Marquette, you'll recognize the location as the longtime home for L'Attitudes, which closed up shop last year to make way for Iron Bay.

Thankfully, it sounds like tastebuds won't be disappointed in the new kid on the block, because top-notch hamburgers, sandwiches, baked goods, and dinner plates.

And don't you worry your little head about desserts. Iron Bay will be featuring a nice selection of pies from Lorri Smith, who is the owner and baker at Peace Pie Company in Marquette.

The new restaurant is slated to open to the public May 22 -- just in time for the Memorial Day Weekend tourism surge.

If you're thirsty, have no fear -- bar manager Brandon Maki is ready to mix up concoctions for your enjoyment. One such drink is the signature Amaretto Flip, which is a sweet and sour drink made with amaretto, fresh lemon juice, simply syrup, orange bitters and egg white. That is just one of many signature drinks and old standbys available at Iron Bay's bar.
Additionally, there will be a coffee bar inside Iron Bay, which will feature all the coffee drinks folks have come to know and become slightly addicted to.

Iron Bay is owned by Joe Constance and Jill Hayes and will be open seven days a week from 11 am. to 11 p.m.
