Mackinac Island Vacation Lodging and Recreation


Woods Restaurant will close for the season following dinner on Sunday, October 8.

Woods Restaurant is located a short, scenic horse-drawn carriage ride into the wooded interior of Mackinac Island. This opulent Tudor mansion with Bavarian charm provides a unique casual dining experience for all Mackinac Island visitors. Before or after dinner enjoy freshly popped popcorn and test your skill on America’s oldest operating duckpin bowling alley. You may also enjoy before and after dinner drinks at Bobby’s Bar opening at 11:00 a.m. daily. The dinner menu includes appetizers, soups, salads, entrees (many with a Bavarian flair), and desserts with a children’s menu also available. You will not want to miss the Austrian Steak soup!

Reservations are recommended for dinner. Please call 906-847-3699. You can make taxi reservations to Woods at the Concierge desk. If you are traveling to Woods from another location other than Grand Hotel carriage transportation is available on Main Street in front of the Star Line Dock. Please call Mackinac Island Carriage Tours for pick-up times.

Woods Restaurant is an award winning restaurant earning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2015 and 2016.
