    Main Dining Room

Few dining locations are more picturesque than Grand Hotel’s Main Dining Room. It overlooks the world’s longest porch displaying the hotel’s many American flags, as well as the glistening Straits of Mackinac.

Sit down for dinner while enjoying music by the Grand Hotel Orchestra. You may even catch a glimpse of the bellmen taking down the flags for the day — a sunset tradition.

  • Our Mackinac Island dining room offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
  • We only accept reservations for parties of 10 or more people. To make a reservation, please contact our Concierge at (906) 847-3331 ext. 567.
  • For each service, we are proud to offer gluten-free menu options.
