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.

Opening Day Chili!

Opening Day Chili!

Opening Day is Often Chili!  This Saturday!  Be prepared for some fantastic, off-the-charts chili.  We’re serving it Saturday, 11 am until 2 pm, or until the fish start rising.  This isn’t the old throw a buncha stuff in a pot chili.  This is the good stuff.  Generous portions, and under $10.   Will last you til’ dinner…
