C.A.Y.A., which stands for “come as you are,” offers a casual dining experience focusing on quality food made with local ingredients. The modern menu, designed by award-winning Executive Chef Jeff Rose, centers on house-smoked beef and pork along with fresh seafood, steaks, chops, and bistro entrees. Smoked items are cooked for 10-14 hours using hickory, oak, maple, apple, and cherry woods. This process ensures all meats are cooked through and naturally tender. The variety of woods used produces a dark outer “bark” that caramelizes the outside of the meat. The restaurant also features weekly specials, with plenty of delicious side dishes and savory desserts. C.A.Y.A. Smokehouse Grill has a full bar serving specialty drinks, an extensive wine list, and a beer list highlighting Michigan craft beers on tap. Enjoy Happy Hour daily, or stop by Saturdays and Sundays for brunch. Catering is available for any sized group and a new, on-site banquet room is now available for private events. D Tue.-Sun., Br.
