    The Jockey Club at the Grand Stand

Overlooking the first tee of The Jewel, The Jockey Club at the Grand Stand is a great dining option for all Mackinac Island visitors. Enjoy covered outdoor seating, as you watch the golfers and horse-drawn carriages pass by, or dine indoors in a quaint and comfortable setting.

A multi-year winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, this casual restaurant offers lunch fare like sandwiches, soups, and salads. Dinner features a variety of entrees including steak, seafood, and fresh local whitefish, plus other Jockey Club specialties. And don’t forget dessert, where we have many selections including the Grand Pecan Ball — a guest favorite and the hotel’s signature dessert. A children’s menu and specialty drinks are also available, along with fine wine selections and Michigan craft beers. We are also excited to introduce monthly seafood broils this summer!
