Jax Northside Food & Spirits, the newest Wineguys Restaurant Group addition, is Charlevoix’s answer to the roadhouse of the 21st century. On the edge of Charlevoix, overlooking the 6th green of the Charlevoix Municipal Golf Course, Jax offers great food, locally sourced and creatively prepared. Patrons will find the same variety of libations appreciate at other Wineguys restaurants — from small batch brews to a good ol’ PBR, from fine wines to craft cocktails.

FULL CALENDAR

Our Story

Originally an indoor roller rink — with a smooth white maple floor — the popular locale was considered the finest and largest rink in northern Michigan. Sometime later the building was named the Moonlight Gardens, for dining and dancing. Starting in 1965, the site began a decades-long run, under different owners and names, as a successful restaurant, bar and entertainment venue.

 

Jax Northside was recently purchased by Wineguys Restaurant Group of Petoskey. The Charlevoix location is the fourth Wineguys acquisition and the first outside of Petoskey. (Petoskey’s City Park Grill, Roast & Toast, and Palette are all Wineguys Guys properties.)

Sports Bar

A full bar is spacious for gathering friends, yet complete with cozy booths for comparing score cards after a day of golf. At Jax Northside, patrons will find the same variety of libations appreciate at other Wineguys restaurants — from small batch brews to a good ol’ PBR, from fine wines to craft cocktails. The full Jax menu is available in the bar, too.

Locally Sourced

Like all Wineguys eateries, Jax proudly supports local purveyors and farmers. Ingredients are fresh, and locally sourced, whenever possible. John Cross whitefish is a menu staple, for example, and regional farms supply produce when in season. The full lunch and dinner menu includes everything specialty burgers, inventive sandwiches alongside standard favorites, creative salads and generous entrees. And, everything is housemade — from salad dressings to sauces!

From rehearsal dinners and holiday parties, to corporate events and showers, Jax makes hosting an event seamless.
