The woods, what a great place for a secluded and elegant dinner! We have been back to stay on Mackinac Island many times, since we were married on the Island, nearly twenty years ago. Ironically, we hadn't been back to the Woods since our honeymoon!...More

Wasn't overly impressed with the whole place. The wait staff was friendly and professional and the food was good however, not a great value, But then again you're kind of a captive audience . Not bad just Not great as one might expect.
