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.
