“Wonderful drinks and views”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Located at the very top of the Grand Hotel. The $10 cost to explore the hotel if you are not a guest, is worth the price. If you go to dinner or the lunch buffet(our favorite) one should take the time to buy a drink and drink in the views from the unique lounge.

“Go for the view!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

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.

“Room with a view”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

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.
