Food served in Grand style with amazing view of Marquette Park and the downtown area as well as the harbor. Well worth the park admission to eat here.

The view was stunning from the outdoor seating area. We watched several freighters go by and under the Mackinac Bridge. The lunch was a good break for us. I had the chicken wrap and it was very tasty. It was light.

A delightful end to the tour of the fort. Beautiful vistas, accommodating wait staff, and a welcome relief to sit for just a moment after the climb up to the fort.
