Taste the Local Difference

Few regions in the country can boast of such a dynamic agricultural tradition as northern Michigan. Our farms, wineries, breweries, and artisans are an integral part of our region’s unique identity. The Crystal Mountain culinary team embraces this tradition and has partnered with local producers to create a menu that celebrates this bounty. Ask your server for details.
