Every Meal is an Event. Every Event is a Tradition.

Throughout the history of Grand Hotel, dining has been one of the highlights of every guest experience. Every meal is truly special, thanks to exceptional food by our chef, service and ambiance of the Main Dining Room overlooking the Straits of Mackinac. Here, dressing up for dinner is a tradition and sitting down with your family for a meal is an event.

After 6:30 p.m. in the main areas of the hotel and the Main Dining Room, gentlemen are required to wear a coat, tie, and slacks and women in a dress, skirt or pantsuit. No denim or shorts please. Click here for more information.
