Boyne Mountain Resort Restaurants
Are you planning a trip to Boyne Mountain in the near future? It’s a wonderful spot year-round. Play golf and enjoy the other outdoor activities in the summer and have fun downhill skiing in the winter!
Regardless of the time of year you visit, you’ll need to eat, and luckily there are some fabulous Boyne Mountain Restaurants right on site!
✔ Stay at the Boyne Mountain Grand Lodge for easy access to all of these great restaurants. Book your stay HERE!
Boyne Mountain Restaurants in the Main Lodge
If you are staying in the Boyne Mountain Grand Lodge (and you should!) you don’t even have to leave the building to enjoy a quality meal.
Right next to the main lobby in the Boyne Mountain Grand Lodge is Everett’s. A combination bar and full-service restaurant, Everett’s has a cozy and comfortable environment.
Grab a drink at the bar after a day of skiing – or even get a drink to go and enjoy on the balcony in your room!
Everett’s has a little bit of everything on the menu. From delicious appetizers to full entrees, pasta, and salads, everyone in your dining party can find something delightful.
Another bonus of Everett’s is that often on the weekends (especially holiday weekends) there is a lovely and very filling breakfast buffet!
My favorite place to grab a cup of coffee in the morning is at Das Cafe. Located down the hallway towards the fitness center and spa, Das Cafe offers a full menu of caffeinated drinks (Starbucks coffee) along with grab-and-go breakfasts, sandwiches, and snack items.
There is also a cooler full of drinks (both with and without alcohol) and a variety of packaged snacks.
If we are staying at the main lodge, I almost always start my day with a freshly made Americano and take it to the main fireplace or sit at one of the little tables by the windows along the hallway.
Apres Ski Pub
When your kids are playing in the connected arcade or waterpark, Apres Ski Pub is a fun place to grab a drink and hang out while they have fun.
The menu is casual with pizza and sandwiches – all very kid-friendly, so you can get them a bite to eat in between their explorations, but the pub does also have a decent variety of beers and a fun “pool-themed” cocktail menu.
Boyne Mountain Resort Restaurants in the Village
Once you leave the Boyne Mountain Grand Lodge, there are even MORE Boyne Mountain restaurants to pick from in the village! Although there are additional food trucks that seem to come and go, these are definitely the staples.
Forty Acres is the quintessential apres ski hangout. Located at the base of the mountain, it’s a cozy restaurant and bar with delicious food and plenty of drink choices – 40 beers on tap!
In the winter, a fire is always roaring in the gorgeous fireplace, and the place is PACKED with folks who have spent the day outdoors skiing. It’s a fun and gregarious atmosphere.
The food at Forty Acres is terrific. My favorite is the white chicken chili (always an apres ski winner), but the mac & cheese is also wonderful as are the burgers and sandwiches. For the hungry folks in your party, they do offer steak and salmon as an option.
The Trophy Room
When your gang is ready for pizza, the Trophy Room Pub & Pizzeria is the place to get it.
Located in the clock tower building at the base of the mountain, the Trophy Room has a few tables and booths, along with a bar in the middle, but they also do a fantastic job with takeout.
🍕 Insider tip: order Trophy Room pizza early in your trip as you’ll undoubtedly have leftovers – it makes an excellent lunch or snack later in the week!
On those nights that everyone just wants to chill (or maybe play games in the room as we do 😁), a to-go order from The Trophy Room is a must.
The pizza is all fabulous – our favorites include The Superbowl and The Bronze, and you can also order wings, grinders, and salads. Plus, don’t forget an order of breadsticks or cheese bread.

Next door to the Trophy Room and up a flight of stairs is Stein Eriksen’s. This restaurant has had a number of menu iterations through the years, from the days of the Saturday 4-6 kids parties (so much fun) to buffet meals and more.
The location is lovely with a view of the mountain and it’s one of the more spacious spots to eat at Boyne.
The current favorite at Stein Ericksen’s is cheese fondue – YUM! There are also a few more dinner choices than some of the other Boyne Mountain Restaurants and include items like steaks, pasta, and fish. You can make a reservation at Stein Eriksen’s which could be a lifesaver during a busy weekend.
If I’m visiting Boyne to ski in the winter, I will absolutely get a taco from Happy’s Tacos. Every time. Sometimes more than one day!
Happy’s Tacos (Boyne City) is a food truck that pulls in at the base of the mountain near the outdoor bar and they serve heavenly tacos and burritos. Seriously – really good food!
The food truck isn’t always there – usually only on busy weekends, but if you see it, make a point to stop – you won’t be sorry!!!
🌮 Insider tip: If the Happy’s Tacos truck isn’t there on your visit, check to see if they are open at The Back Lot in Petoskey for your taco fix. You might get lucky!
Boyne Mountain Restaurants on the Mountain
Because Boyne Mountain is a ski mountain, there are a few places to grab a bite to eat on the mountain itself.
A staple on the mountain is the Eagle’s Nest. It’s the perfect place to stop after an afternoon of skiing and enjoy a drink with a view. (tip: the Bloody Mary is excellent!). You can also get simple snacks and even ice cream.
In the summer, there is a chairlift that will whisk you up to the Eagle’s Nest – or you can hike up the mountain for a little exercise. After a quick break, you can walk or ride back down to the village.
Regardless of how you get there, make it a point to stop in at the Eagle’s Nest – it’s a Boyne Mountain classic.
The Waffle Cabin
A favorite of the kids, the Waffle Cabin is located at the bottom of the main lift and serves up delicious sugary waffles with or without chocolate sauce.
You can also warm up with hot chocolate or pick up some water if you are thirsty!
👀 Insider tip: Now that the Skybridge is open, there is a food truck at the top of the Disciples 8 lift with drinks and a few food items – I haven’t tried it yet, so can’t share much, but it could be another mountain restaurant option.
Conclusion: Boyne Mountain Restaurants
It should be pretty obvious that there are plenty of fantastic restaurants at Boyne Mountain. You certainly aren’t going to go hungry!
