Cawthorne’s Village Inn


Formerly the Village Inn, established in 1981 is Grand Hotel's newest casual dining option. Located on Hoban Street  just a block off Mackinac's Main Street across from Shepler's Ferry docks, Cawthorne's is open year round and features seasonally changing menus. Choices include the signature planked whitefish, special selections using Michigan products, several organic dishes; and favorite of hotel guests, the Grand Pecan Ball. The street-side patio is the perfect place for summertime drinks, lunch or dinner.
