On this episode of “Behind the Mitten,” John Gonzalez and Amy Sherman travel to FireKeepers Casino Hotel in Battle Creek where they go behind the scenes to its newest addition: Dacey’s Taphouse.
The restaurant features 52 taps, including 42 from Michigan. Plus, the food is more than just bar food — we sampled mac and cheese, tacos and even a short rib bowl with tons of delicious veggies. The taphouse has a separate entrance, so even if you don’t gamble, you can still check it out.
