Legs Inn.

Legs Inn - Upside-down Stove Legs

Legs Inn is a Polish restaurant and bar. The food is good and the view behind the restaurant of Lake Michigan is beautiful. In the summer you can sit outside and eat.

The name of the place comes from all the upside-down stove legs decorating the roof. Inside, the place is decorated with this gorgeous gnarled, twisted wood that has been finished. The tables and bar are made of this wood. Has a gift shop, also!

Upside-down Stove restaurant

Cross Village features a two-story stone hand-built Polish-American restaurant called the Leg's Inn, overlooking Lake Michigan, crowned with upside-down stove legs (thus the name). The Inn's inside is decorated throughout with polished twining tree roots from neighboring swamps arranged in shapes suggestive of life forms both imaginary and real. Side benefits: The food is both interesting and good, the view of the Lake is great, and the drive from Harbor Springs through the "tunnel of trees" is unmatched.
