Longtime Grayling visitors are familiar with its downtown namesake restaurant that served a legendary breakfast called the Lumberjack. Much to the dismay of residents and visitors alike the Grayling Restaurant closed after 75 years of service this past September 30th.
On Wednesday, May 1st at 6:00 am, the doors reopened. Bridget Harland, manager of Spikes Keg of Nails for many years and husband Jim has joined with her brother Scott VanLuchene and sister-in-law Kathy to open what many believe to be an anchor business for the downtown area. “We are really excited to bring back what we believe to be one of the most known eateries in the area. I will be the day-to-day manager and we have been able to bring back several of the past employees to help make this the Grayling Restaurant that everyone remembers” stated Bridget. Their new hours are from 6:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
