Top Places to Eat in St. Joseph, MI


Bad Art Bistro

The Bad Art Bistro originally got its name from the collection of terribly executed yet oddly charming art works which covered its walls, from a close-up painting of Elvis to a slightly lopsided copy of the Mona Lisa. Under new management, the restaurant no longer exhibits the bad art, instead opting for more modern presentation.
