    Woods Restaurant

The Quintessential Mackinac Island Dining Experience

Remote, sophisticated, and cozy Bavarian hunting lodges began as simple shelter for hunting parties that would later become grand timber-built castles and halls for feasts and gatherings.

This is Woods Restaurant, Mackinac Island’s culinary hideaway chalet.

We honor the Midwest legacy of food foraged from field and farm, and the tradition of sharing a variety of wilderness game with kindred spirits. Whether in the Great Hall, The Patio at Woods, or The Chalet, you’ll be surrounded by the majesty and beauty only nature can provide.

Voted “Best Resort Restaurant” by USA Today.
