The restaurant at Gates Lodge serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual setting beside the Au Sable River. Our extensive menus are 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. We now offer beer, wine and cocktails, though we’ll continue to charge a corkage fee ($12) for folks that would like to bring in their own wine.
Chef Matt and pastry chef Emily take great pride in everything they make, from out-of-this-world desserts to hash and eggs in the morning. We are open to the public seven days a week from the weekend before trout opener thru the middle of October.
We are a small but popular restaurant, so reservations are required for dinner, or for larger parties at any time.
Breakfast: 7 am – 2 pm
Lunch: 11:30 am – 2 pm
Take-out: 10 am – 8 pm
Dinner: 5 pm – 8 pm
Please call us at (989) 348–8462 for reservations.
We have a restaurant that just sits here all winter…we thought we might as well use it. Plus, eating Clif bars all day gets old. We’ll be open most every weekend for Friday and Saturday dinners, and Saturday and Sunday breakfasts. We will try to keep you updated on what weekends we’ll be serving, but every weekend in January is a sure thing. With excellent cross-country skiing, weekend fly tying lessons, and of course fishing of all kinds, winter is best spent out in the snow. We have expanded the number of rooms we have open this winter. Come make it a snowy weekend!
Dinner hours: Friday and Saturday, 5 pm – 7:30 pm. Reservations are required to help us plan ahead.
Breakfast hours: Saturday and Sunday, 8 am – 11 am
