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 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 reservations.
The Restaurant at Gates Lodge is open! Some notes…
We are open 7 days a week for dine-in and take-out for breakfast and lunch, 7 am – 2 pm.
Dinner hours are 5 pm – 7:30 pm, Wednesday – Sunday, and are outside dining/take-out for non-lodge guests. We have great outside dining by the river!
Sandwiches until 4 pm: Want to pack dinner to the river? Our restaurant will take sandwich orders until 4 pm for pick-up before 5 pm…and then offer regular dinner menu items after 5 pm. While we’d like to, we can’t offer sandwiches that are ordered AFTER 4 pm through the month of June.
