Dining at Historic Banning Mills Lodge Print


Start your day with a delicious breakfast!

 It's always Beautiful Here! 

Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. All of our overnight guests on the Inn side will receive a full  breakfast each morning of their stay.

Our hearty full breakfasts always have fresh fruit, coffee, juice and teas to start you out. Next, try our hickory smoked bacon or ham, eggs to order and homemade biscuits. If you prefer something a little lighter, we always have yogurts and cereals. Breakfast is served in our main lodge in our dining areas between 9 am and 10 am.

Catered Food BuffetDining Options
Although Banning Mills does NOT have a walk in restaurant but we do have lunch and dinner options. Ask us about our picnic style baskets. If we have a group on site, we can let you know what the chef will be preparing for that day. If you would like to “tag on” to a group lunch or dinner meal, just let the front desk staff know! We can prepare picnic style lunches for you before or after your Adventure treks!  Please remember that we must know ahead of time if you would like to dine with us or have a picnic style lunch ready.

Want something a little nicer? We can serve a four course gourmet dinner on our beautiful Tree Terrace that overlooks the Snake Creek Gorge. We have several entrée selections to choose from including vegetarian options. Again, we do need to know ahead of time so that our chef will be able to prepare the dinner just for you!
