Lake Effect Kitchen was one of two local businesses chosen to revamp a historical trolley. We’re very excited for the opportunity and will plan to be parked at Chinook Pier all summer long, offering up amazing food to Grand Haven locals and visitors! We will also be furthering our mission using the Trolley, by continuing to employ people with intellectual and physical disabilities. The Trolley will also offer catering for private events – learn more below!
