About Us

Mustaches optional, but encouraged!

Welcome to our Juice Joint! Winchester’s brings you back to the Roaring 20s in the time of speakeasies, when alcohol could only be consumed with a prescription.

We make lunch fun for whole family with options for everyone, including a great kids menu. When the evening comes, the lights dim for a more intimate feel. The menu has been crafted with unique dishes, such as Brussels Sprouts Chips, Bone-in Ribeye Steak, Short Rib Risotto, and many whiskey and bourbon infused options.

We carry the most extensive selection of whiskey and bourbon on Mackinac Island.  Join us for a bourbon and whiskey flight. New to the brown spirits? Let us create a flight to educate you. Advanced palate? We’ve got the perfect selection for you, too. Enjoy a great craft beer?We are also introducing Rusty Fender Scotch Ale, our own signature craft beer brewed by Right Brain Brewery in Traverse City.

Bring your own mustache, or we’ll give you one of ours!

Our Staff

Wally Arenas, General Manager

Welcome, friends! I have over 25 years of experience in hospitality – seven years of running teams doing restaurant openings and the last fifteen managing restaurants and fine dining. When you come in and want to order my favorite cocktail, a classic Old Fashioned is probably my favorite drink to make. I love to play sports. I grew up playing just about everything, but these days golf, racquetball and tennis are what I play when I can. There is so much to love about the island, but I think I enjoy the quiet the most. I like taking the walk around the perimeter and hiking the 70 miles of trails in the middle of the island.  Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Justin Barnes, Director of Operations

My passion is creating new concepts in dining that bring together great food and excellent service to create an amazing experience for our guests.  For 30 years, I have been working in the restaurant business and have held positions from Dishwasher to Director of Operations, and everything in between. My favorite cocktail is a Vieux Carre – if you love a bold drink, make sure to order one from one of our expert bartenders. When I get a day off, I am a habitual golfer and love boating. In the winter, you will find me on a ski hill or traveling with my family. Biking M-185 is my favorite thing to do on Mackinac.
