We had lunch here and sat on the balcony. The waitstaff was prompt and pleasant. The food was average. It was all about the view and absolutely worth it.

We made a reservation, therefore were able to have a front row seat on the veranda. That alone was worth the price of the meal!!!! We had a beautiful, breezy day with lots of sun, and the umbrella did well to protect us from the sun. We had turkey, ham and Swiss, and chicken salad between us all. Everything was... More

I guess the food is only average and the menu somewhat limited but the outdoor patio has breathtaking views of the town. Bridge and harbor. Even better than the Grand Hotel (which also happens to own this cafe). I had the soup and sandwich special and it was quite good. The one drawback to this place is I think you... More

We sat at the tea room to rest after touring the fort. We had nice drinks but the deserts are a must. Strawberry Milkshake, Strawberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Cake, and Pecan Roll Ice Cream. They are all delish and a must!!

This is the place to eat lunch. Service is great. Although the food is pricey, the view of the harbor more than makes up for the cost of food. We had the cheapest item on the menu which was a hot dog ($10). However, prices are not that much more than other places on the Island. Try to avoid the... More

My son had personalized cheese pizza. My husband got nachos and potato soup. It was so wonderful! The staff was wonderful! This is wonderful outdoor seating! Would go... More

I had a lovely Caesar salad and my husband had a roast beef sandwich. However, the best part was enjoying the view! We watched yachts coming into the harbor, and all the people on the green below. Such a wonderful view on a sunny great day!

Set into the side of Fort Mackinaw this restaurant run by the Grand Hotel is by far the best view on the island! The service we received was outstanding! The food was fabulous & plentiful! If you're visiting Fort Mackinaw don't hesitate to have lunch here. You won't regret it!

We stopped here for lunch and cold drinks while visiting Fort Mackinac. The food was good, the drinks were cold, and the service was exceptional. Best part though was the fantastic view overlooking the city, the harbor, Mackinac Bridge and all the way to Mackinaw City. Great place!!
