Gates lodge restaurant header


The restaurant at Gates Lodge serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual setting beside the Au Sable River. Our food is prepared almost entirely in house and from scratch. Our take-out window and huge sandwich menu is unlike anything for miles and allows anglers to get a quick bite to eat…or take their food to the river. 

Chefs Matt and Emily take great pride in everything they make, from out-of-this-world desserts to hash and eggs in the morning.  We also serve food on select winter weekends.  

We are a small but popular restaurant, so reservations are required for dinner, or for larger parties at any time.   

Please call us at 989-348–8462 for Wednesday thru Sunday dinner reservations.

We offer beer, wine and cocktails, though we’ll continue to charge a corkage fee ($15) for folks who would like to bring in their own wine.
