About Grassroots Neighborhood Eatery


 A new "Farm to Table" neighborhood eatery. Fresh and Local....Taste the difference!


After 20 Years, we decided to re-concept Deleece Restaurant into Grassroots neighborhood eatery,

a farm to table neighborhood restaurant. We chose the name Grassroots because it clearly

communicates the direction we are headed in. We want to get “back to basics” with the food, the

décor, and the service. For the past four years we’ve been growing our own vegetables and herbs for

the restaurant and we will continue to do so for Grassroots. We are also working with a number of

Michigan farmers. We now get most of our produce from  Farm’s in Berrien Center, Michigan and

we get most of our meats from Kaminski Farms in Three Oaks, Michigan. We are also carrying

Greenbush beers which is a new brewery in Sawyer, Michigan and we have some distilled spirits from

Jouneyman Distillery, also in Three Oaks, Michigan.


Our focus is on Southwest Michigan where we have a summer cottage, and where we enjoy a slower paced, simpler lifestyle. Over the years, we have grown to love all that Southwest Michigan has to offer and have decided to bring it to Southport.


Our menu features simple, farm to table comfort food that’s well executed. We offer

entrees like Chicken breast with garlic mashed potatoes and green bean almondine ( with Harrison farms organic-free range chicken) 

 steak frites ( with 14 day dry-aged sirloin from Kaminski Farms), and our cheeseburgers now

feature 14 day dry-aged ground beef from Kaminski Farms. We also have artisanal pizzas on the menu which cook

in a matter of minutes in our new 900 degree European pizza oven.


We warmed up the décor with an abundance of reclaimed wood from local barns and we now have

beautiful photos of farm life in Michigan (all photographed by the owner) and set into stunning

reclaimed wood frames designed in house.


Our service remains as it’s always been: Warm, welcoming, friendly servers offering professional yet empathic service.
