The Historic Dining Room

The Historic Dining Room

Full-size canoes hang upside down from the ceiling, and miniature ones top tables at this home-style restaurant within The Potawatomi Inn at Pokagon State Park. The playful atmosphere caters to park-going families, some of whom make the Grille a tradition thanks to its outstanding Sunday brunch buffet. Navigate a culinary river of fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, crispy bacon, made-to-order omelets and pillowy DIY waffles. Guests can also order from the extensive menu of aged steaks, regional fish (lake perch, walleye and blue gill), meat loaf and burgers. While you’re waiting for the food to arrive—or if you just need a break between plates— bring out your inner child by coloring the paper table coverings with provided crayons. You’ll leave happily full, but calorie-burning activities abound here, including hiking, biking and, of course, canoeing.
