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.

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.
