About Cawthorne’s Village Inn

Cawthorne’s Village Inn originally opened as the Village Inn in 1981. Located on Hoban Street just a block off Mackinac’s Main Street across from Shepler’s Ferry dock, Cawthorne’s is open year round and features seasonally changing menus. Popular choices include the signature planked whitefish, ribs and several other entrees designed by our chef. Plus a favorite of hotel guests: the Grand Pecan Ball, Grand Hotel’s signature dessert.

The street-side patio is the perfect place for summertime drinks, lunch or dinner. Enjoy your favorite sporting event on the indoor televisions and take your chance at Keno and pull tabs. You can also enjoy live musical entertainment on select evenings and seasonal bar specials. Specialty drinks are available including many Michigan craft beers.


Cawthorne’s Village Inn is an award winning restaurant earning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2015 and 2016.

During the season overnight guests of Grand Hotel on the Modified American Plan receive a $20.00 per adult credit towards the food portion of their dinner bill. Tipping is expected at Cawthorne’s Village Inn.
