We stopped here on our way to Mackinac Island for dinner after a friend highly recommended it recommended that.

They were about an hour... More

We were driving through town on our way back from vacation and stopped in for lunch - this place is fantastic! Could not believe the variety on the menu. The smoked trout chowder was the best chowder we've ever had, and they had over 50 sandwiches to choose from. The Reuben had cheese grilled onto the outside, really crispy and... More

I used Gates Lodge for a 4 hour guided fly fishing trip on the Au Sable. Jordan was just what I needed. I am 63 with some casting experience but limited local knowledge. He really knows his stuff and was patient and friendly. Great conversation and we caught some fish. Highly recommend Jordan. Al Sabin

A must go for breakfast during your fishing trip in the Grayling area. Always enjoy the food here. Hard to beat the view of the Holy Waters.

Make a reservation especially during fly fishing season! Try and get an early reservation as some dishes disappear. We had lake perch and walleye. Both marvelous. Portions are on the big size so you might want to share a main and add extra sides. Dessert was peach bread pudding with vanilla bean ice cream. All of it was oh so... More
