You can't beat the view from the balcony at the Tea Room at Fort Mackinac. The only drawback is you need to pay the admission to the Fort ($13 for an adult) in order to eat at this restaurant. But their selection is good and...More

The view is what you eat here for. The food is ok at best, and the prices are a bit high. This shouldn't stop you from eating here though, because the relaxing view of down town main street, the marina, and the harbor make it...More

The Fort Macinac Tea Room is located within Fort Macinac, therefore the Fort admission fee is required to access the restaurant. For this reason, this is not somewhere one would visit if they are not touring the fort. But if you are touring the fort,...More

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 fort is awesome to visit and the history is great (if you can remember it!). The re-enactments are fun to watch, BUT....the views from the TEA ROOM are spectacular! Highly recommend the entire fort and the TEA ROOM. History is always a good reminder...More
