Food is available at a restaurant at Rock Harbor Lodge, and basic snacks at the Windigo Store. Otherwise you better bring your own. There are actually fairly limited options in Grand Portage; but a wide variety of fine places to eat in Houghton. I especially liked Joey's a great seafood place in Houghton.
Rock Harbor Lodge dining room features a variety of homemade soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers and fresh Lake trout, our specialty.
All guests on the American Plan have meals included with their rate.
All visitors are welcome in the Dining Room and Greenstone Grill

All prices include a 6% Sales Tax, a 3% room assessment tax, and a Utility Pass Through of 21%. This charge represents the National Park Service's cost to provide utilities to Isle Royale visitors which are over and above the normal costs of providing these services. This charge is authorized by the National Park Service to be passed on to the consumer.
The closest thing to a restaurant on Isle Royal is candy bars in the supply store at the ranger station at Windigo. You are the chef, have fun with your meals, but plan ahead. Our favorites on the trip were instant flavored rice, canned stew and don't forget treats like jolly ranchers, sunflower seeds and nut rolls.
A small flask also helps keep you warm at night, we ended up needing a 1.75... college guys, what do you expect.
