Originally the Winsor Snover Bank when the building first opened its doors in 1884, the two-story red brick establishment has also housed the Port Austin State Bank, the Port Austin Township Library, a bicycle repair shop, and a dentist office, among other things, before welcoming hungry diners as a restaurant in 1984. Casey and Eric Bruce purchased the business in 2017 and are the fourth restaurateurs to own the establishment.
The current owners are continuing the long tradition at The Bank 1884 of providing guests with such popular entrees as Austrian Prime Rib and Chicken Wellington, and providing excellent service by the well-trained waitstaff. Additionally, vegetarian entrees and eclectic specials have been added to augment the menu.
The Bank 1884 is a member of the Michigan Restaurant Association and the Greater Port Austin Area Chamber of Commerce.
From perfecting our ambiance to serving you with a smile, and everything in between– what we do here is truly a labor of love for you, Port Austin.
