Enjoy a Lake Michigan View from Dunes Pavilion

For a while I've been hearing buzz about renovations at the Dunes Pavilion at the Indiana Dunes State Park. It had been quite a while since I'd been to the Dunes - like maybe close to a decade. I remembered the historic building and was excited that it would be upgraded and put to better use. Last month the long awaited opening of the restaurant took place. My friend and I were planning to do a hang out day at the beach and upon arrival we stopped first at the restaurant to see how long it might take to get a table. I'd been hearing that tables have been in high demand and there's been long waits to be seated. We wanted to eat on the patio and were told it would be about an hour wait.  We couldn't really go far and get comfortable on the beach since there's not a pager system or intercom system for the restaurant, so you kind of just have to hang out close by or have a seat at the bar if it's open so that they can easily find you when you're table's
