A wonderful panoramic view of the Island! There are two levels. They preferred to seat everyone on the upper level. It was quite crowded with few servers and service was very slow and expensive. I recommend to visit for the view then go downstairs to the library and have a cocktail before dinner.

This is the bar at the top of the grand hotel. Its a great place to take in the sights of the hotel grounds and Lake Huron. House wine is $10 per glass and beer is $ 6.50. They do serve food as well.

Super overpriced and service is super slow. The atmosphere and the view are the only reasons to hike up all those stairs (the elevator is scary).

This was a fine place for a drink and appetizers and possibly watch the sunset. Our waiter who has to run up the stairs from the bar below to serve was very attentive and friendly and the view is one of the best over the island and mainland to the bridge. The only downside is that the hotel is on the bus tour routes and crowds come running through to take pictures, but most leave after a few pictures.
