GREAT FOOD! Pricey, but worth every penny. It was a little loud but I think it was restaurant week business, not normal. I would go back again. More

Attended a special six-course French tasting dinner with wines; very nice, food is excellent as is service. Feels very much like a country French venue, very quaint. Chef Guillaume frequents the dining room which is nice, very friendly. More

Global, International | Charlevoix, Northern Michigan

The G.G. has such a pleasant atmosphere; it's like dining in someone's beautiful parlor. The staff was attentive. I was impressed by the number of special offerings on the menu. I have a hard time ordering anything but the prime rib here, because it's cooked to perfection (I like mine very rare, and they can do that!). One of my fellow diners had the halibut special, and she said it was excellent. It's a real plus that they take reservations. Wine list is on a tablet..is fairly extensive by the bottle. More

Funistrada is a wonderful asset to Glen Arbor and Leelanau. Consistently good food, great service, and fairly priced. Have been there many times and always look forward to the next visit. More

Cawthorne's Village InnCawthorne's Village Inn
$$$$
American | Mackinac Island, Northern Michigan

For 37 years, Cawthorne's Village Inn has been a favorite destination of locals and tourists alike. In fact, it has consistently been voted one of northern Michigans best restaurants! A half block off Main Street, on Hoban Street and straight up from Shepler's Ferry Dock, sits “the VI,” where summer visitors can dine on the outdoor patio and watch a passing parade of horses, carriages, bikes and walkers. Originally opened as the Village Inn in 1981, diners enter below a hanging sign announcing its house specialty, Planked Whitefish, which has garnered international acclaim. We also feature other Great Lakes fish, fresh from waters in and near the straits of Mackinac. Inside, enjoy your favorite sporting event on the indoor televisions and take your chance at Keno and pull tabs. You can also enjoy live musical entertainment on select evenings and seasonal bar specials.More
