Haunted Restaurants in Michigan – Eater Detroit


Halloween is almost here, which makes it the perfect time to check out some of Michigan’s haunted restaurants, including a few here in Detroit. The Free Press just published two articles about haunted restaurants and even gave readers a glimpse into the ghosts and the kinds of “events” that guests might experience.

So who was on the list? The South Lyon Hotel in south Lyon, The mission table and the funny pumpkin (formerly the Bowers Harbor Inn) in Traverse City, The grill house in Allegan, The Holly Hotel in holly and The Whitney here in Detroit.

Diners and staff describe disembodied voices, glasses falling from the shelves, haunted elevators that move and open and close by themselves, cigar smoke and perfume wafting through the air, empty whiskey glasses at the bar, lights and televisions that on and off, weird noises and taps turning on and off in bathrooms, and of course a lot of ghostly apparitions in mirrors, photos and on stairs! In its article on “Spirited Dining”, the Freie Presse reports in detail about who died, when and how. A second article introduces the events related to the Holly Hotel and The Whitney’s Halloween, which should be a scary time of year. Oh and as a bonus don’t forget the cowboy spirit in the oldest bar in town. The two-way inn.

Do you have your own creepy restaurant story? Do you have any suggestion for another haunted restaurant that should have been on the list? Let us know in the comments.
