Mackinac Island Vacation Lodging and Recreation

Cawthorne’s Village Inn

For 37 years, Cawthorne’s Village Inn has been a favorite destination of locals and tourists alike. In fact, it has consistently been voted one of northern Michigan’s best restaurants!

A half block off Main Street, on Hoban Street and straight up from Shepler’s Ferry Dock, sits “the VI,” where summer visitors can dine on the outdoor patio and watch a passing parade of horses, carriages, bikes and walkers.

Originally opened as the Village Inn in 1981, diners enter below a hanging sign announcing its house specialty, Planked Whitefish, which has garnered international acclaim.

We also feature other Great Lakes fish, fresh from waters in and near the Straits of Mackinac.

Inside, enjoy your favorite sporting event on the indoor televisions and take your chance at Keno.

You can also enjoy live musical entertainment on select evenings and seasonal specials at our custom oak bar.

Specialty drinks are available including many Michigan craft beers. Fine wines are available by the glass and bottle.

Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night menus.

We proudly serve 100% Certified Angus steaks, chops, burgers, ribs and great desserts.

Children 5 and under eat free, and Cawthorne’s Village Inn also features Halal menu choices.
