“Great food, service and prices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

My husband and I frequent the Island on a weekly basis in the summer just so we can enjoy a meal at the Village Inn and or the Gatehouse Restaurant. They both have wonderful food, friendly service and you get a lot for your dollar. We have never been disappointed and always look forward to our weekly treat. Thank you Village Inn and Gatehouse Restaurant! You are the best.

“Excellent service, good food, good for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

We've been here a few times, and they've always treated us well. The beer selection is really nice - they have a lot of beers from a variety of Michigan breweries. The food is quite good too - I can recommend the whitefish. It's got a nice bar that's a good place to stop for a drink.

“Planked Whitefish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

All time favorite at the Village Inn for many years is the Planked Whitefish. Still a great meal even though new management has taken over Cawthornes the Inn this year. Good draft beer at reasonable prices also.

The food at Village Inn is consistenly good so we are sure to always include a visit there each year we come to the island. Their servers are friendly and attentive also.

“Food and service was great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012 via mobile

Me and a few friends stopped in on our first trip to Mackinac island
People we talked to said to stop in there
So we did food and service was great
Our server Katie was the best ever( and she is so hot ) we had a table near the kitchen so we heard everything the chef had to say and thought he was a very rude mean person
I'll be back again
