Welcome to Mission Table - thanks for joining us.
Our small plates are designed to share tastes, our entrées offer a more traditional dining experience, and if you’d rather not make any decisions, let Chef Paul and his culinary team prepare our five course tasting menu for you.
We hope you enjoy what our local farmers, fisherman and artisans have produced, our culinary and brewery teams prepare, and our servers bring to your table.

After years of being known as Bowers Harbor Inn, we re-opened as Mission Table at Bowers Harbor Inn
in the spring of 2010. With an awareness of our place in the community of the Old Mission Peninsula
and Northern Michigan, we take our inspiration from the land and waters that surround us.
Our menu features the best ingredients available from local farms and fishermen, using the freshest
products, honoring the seasons and supporting the agricultural economy of the region.
These foods are used in ways that are both innovative and traditional.
As a Microbrewery, we offer craft-distilled Civilized spirits; award-winning Jolly Pumpkin & North Peak
microbrews; and locally produced wines that are focused on local growers, brewers and vintners. Our
wine list reflects our unique and fortunate place in the heart of Northern Michigan wine country.
These delicious wines are created by award-winning winemaker John Kroupa with peninsula-grown grapes. Ask your server for a complete list.
