Sample from Northern Michigan’s largest collection of craft beers with 50 draft beers to choose from, it’s a craft beer lovers dream. More local beers than any other bar, some that you can’t even get below the bridge. If it’s wine that you love, our wine list is expertly crafted. Sports lovers behold, we have 15 TV’s so you don’t miss a moment of the big game. Delicious bistro fare is served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

One of a select few waterfront dining locations.

“Food great, service mediocre”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Our waitress had a wonderful smile and it must have bee pasted on because she seemed not to care. We ordered appetizers, soup, salad , and entree and after waiting a long time, it all arrived at the same time. We are never in a hurry so we would have been fine with the time element but did not appreciate it all coming at once. Ordered water and she must have not heard or forgot--no big deal but when all of the food arrived we had no eating utensils nor napkins. I found them myself so we could eat. I told the waitress just so she would learn from her mistake but she seemed not to care. Food was very tasty.

“Trendy restaurant with outstanding food”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

This restaurant was a lot of fun. It wasn't formal. You could sit inside or outside with the view of the harbour. Food was very good-prepared and presented well. Not being from the Midwest, I tried the Michigan Cherry Sour drink...and I loved it. The beer menu is HUGE. There is also a bar as well as a separate restaurant. It is next to Star Ferry.

“Great Selection, Will Visit Again”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

The Draught House had only been open a week when we visited and had already made a name for itself. Every employee we asked recommended this place and it was great. They have a largely Michigan-based beer selection on tap, their prices are very reasonable, and the staff was accommodating and friendly. The Draught House is attached to Mary's Bistro right next to the Star Line dock on Main St and is definitely on the list for my next trip to the Island.

“Decent Dinner”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We had a nice meal here but some of the entrees (seven were in our group) were tasty but nothing special. They have a combination of local fish, pasta, etc. I would recommend the fish over the pasta.

“Lunch on the Deck”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Enjoyed a grilled lunch by the water - - a great place to people watch as one of the ferry docks is located by the deck. Service was great, music was enjoyable . . . I would visit again!
