You can eat indoors while watching the latest sports on TV or outdoors on their very nice patio with a view of the bridge. The food is excellent.

This is a casual Grand Hotel restaurant and bar located close to the hotel. It has a really nice patio and is set-up like a sports bar inside. The food is really good and prices are reasonable.
I tried the "home made beef pastry" for lunch which cost me about $12. Food was really well presented and the service was good. There is a large beer, wine and cocktail selection.
You get a nice view of the Grand Hotel from the patio.

All staff members from housekeeping, to the front desk, to the restaurant, were friendly and very helpful. We felt very welcome throughout our short visit.
I enjoyed one of the the best breakfast buffets I have experienced. Good variety and good taste. Late one evening we had a light supper, just what we were looking for. Again, good service and good food.
Inside and out, the facility is clean, neat and spacious. Just sitting on the front porch on a sunny afternoon was very relaxing. Our room was very nice with a great view of the harbor and Round Island. After a day that included travel, sightseeing and shopping, it felt good to relax in the pool/whirlpool/sauna. Only comment I could make concerning the grounds would be; that the bicycle rental detracts from the beauty of the front of the hotel and its lawn/gardens.
We enjoyed the hotel and its people, we have no complaints about our stay at The Island House. I do hope that we will be able to make our next visit, a longer visit.

My husband and I went to the Gate House Restaurant after our carriage ride around Mackinac Island. He had rainbow pasta and I had whitefish. Both meals were excellent.
The service was good and I liked eating outside on the patio.
