Did you know we have nine ways to lunch at Grand Hotel? The Fort Mackinac Tea Room has one of the greatest views on Mackinac Island and is always a great option for lunch during your visit! ... See MoreSee Less

Where did you put the Tea Room? I can't figure it out from the picture. There is no place as wonderful and the Grand! After many visits, we celebrated out 50th wedding anniversary there and renewed our vows on the West End of the porch. It was an unbelieveable trip and Mr. Musser and the staff outdid themselves to make it special. That was my husband's last trip there. My wish is to get back this summer.

Do you have to pay to enter fort for lunch?

Is that new? I don’t remember ever seeing that in our 37 years coming there.

Do you need reservations for lunch? Is it lunch, or brunch, ????

Agreed! The hot dog pretzel bun is my favorite! On the last day of our visit at the Grand Hotel, we make the walk to the fort. We have lunch and then depart on the ferry. 🥨🌭

Fanatic views from the porch and the tea room...❤️❤️❤️

Is there a fee for visitors to go into the hotel just see what's inside or sit on the porch and look at the views

And the Grand buffet lunch itself, what are the other 7?

As we speak...and it’s a mushroom soup day!

Brunch is excellent!

The lunch is well worth the money. A great opportunity to be in the Grand Hotel and have a great meal

My favorite place to have a milkshake and the view is spectacular!

For sure my favorite Lunch spot on the island.

Wow, what a spectacular sunny view!! They didn’t have the outdoor deck with pretty yellow umbrellas set up when I visited in May!!! Planning on another visit in October!!!

Haaa!! Everyone on here so confused about this locale! Its not at The Grand Hotel. At fort

I prefer the Grand Dining Room. I ate so much at lunch, Madam took her dinner in her room. What a spectacular event that was. Five ⭐️

Very nice place the view is unbelievable

Sooooo beautiful

My favorite place to have lunch on the island!

loved the Fort tea room and yes wonderful views...we spent quite a while there...highly recommend it..great lemonade and sandwich and soup platters...yum

Thank you for sharing. I hope everyone there realizes how fortunate they are and how many of us wish it was us.

All So beautiful!!!!

Robert Nixon its a great view for lunch !!

Always have lunch here when we visit the island.

I love having lunch here!!

Adorable. Love the drawing of Sadie with arrow to an ice cream cone. Even remembered the mints. This child has a bright future!

This is so sweet! It makes me happy to see the next generation fall in love with Mackinac Island, too.

I’m excited for them...they will definitely have a wonderful time just like I did!!!!!

Crystal Byington

Where’s the pool and snow cones?! 😍

I had never had escargot before. I tried it at dinner at the Grand for the 1st time and LOVED IT. Thank you Grand Hotel for broadening my horizon...lol

It is a shame we couldn't even walk past the Grand on the street without paying $10. Since we refused, we had to walk a 1/2 mile out of our way to get to the Stonecliffe.

There is no place on Earth like Grand Hotel. It is truly one of a kind. The location is gorgeous, but the Musser family and the staff make Grand Hotel unforgettable. I know I have stated in the past that there is no place I would rather spend my time, but it is true. I'm a loyal fan and hope to encourage others to visit and find the magical spirit there. I voted #1 of course....

The Grand Hotel is where one goes for beatifaction , love of the people on the Island, the warmth and laughter as your walking the streets.The wonderful smells of the flowers and fresh air. Its my Happy Place to be. And of course the fudge! 😄

I have stayed at Grand Hotel at least a half dozen times. Each time I walk through the doors, it’s liking coming home again. The atmosphere, staff, and tranquility are second to none!

Peaceful and friendly so nice.

It truly is the happiest place to visit!💕

Eric

Grand Hotel will always have my vote. My HAPPY PLACE. If you have never been, you are missing the essance.

Your making that up. $10.00 is to enter the Grand and goes toward the Buffet. Street walking is free.

We just love visiting every year, last year was the greatest, my daughters 30th birthday stay st the Grand Hotel, will always remember that stay, thanks

Grand Hotel is number one!

Word has it, the flower beds have been planted and are looking awesome this year. ❤

Love this place, when we left May 11th flowers were just starting to bloom.

It's amazing how much a difference a month makes. I was to the island may 11th - 13th no flowers or color of any type. I came back June 15th - 18th, just in time for the lilac festival. AMAZING!!!!! Tons of flowers and color and a million lilacs. I love the island and all its beauty.

I will be back first week of August. My happy place.

I loved this hotel.

I love this island....no place like it

My favorite place to be me!🌺

I'm gonna get there someday!!

A little bit of Heaven on earth is how I describe this place❤️.

Love this place !

Oh What I would Give 🙂
