Great bar service and bartender!

We didn't eat here, but we did stop at the bar. Got a very tasty sangria with brandy and our bartender, whose name escapes me but I do remember he is from Naples, Florida, even took the time to muddle the fruit, rather than just use it as a garnish. Gave my boyfriend a good beer recommendation and... read more

Fun place to grab a bite to eat while you let the kids play a round of putt-putt golf. We only got appetizers and drinks, but all was tasty. Drinks were a bit expensive.

The view was amazing, nice restaurant. It sits right on the putt putt golf course so there were golfers walking through all the time, but it was fine. Service was ok.

This has always been our favorite place to hang out on Mackinac. We have been to this restaurant over 10 times. We have always had a good time here with the bartenders and waiters. This year was totally different. We sat down and my wife told me to order her a brandy old fashion sour while she went to the... More

We were looking for a quick afternoon drink and bite and wandered onto the deck of this restaurant since it had an awesome view. It was not busy at 3:00 on a Tuesday afternoon, but I felt everything was just so-so. They did not have a couple drinks listed on their menu, they were out of one dessert and almost... More

The waiter was very friendly, but just slow. It took forever for him to take our drink order and then another long time before we placed our food order. My burger arrived with a fly stuck in the cheese so he took it back, but when it came back to the table, my bottle bun was soaked in burger grease.... More

We had ridden our bikes past this place many times and decided to give it a try on our most recent visit to the island. The views were nice and the waitstaff was extremely friendly and attentive. The portions were nice and we liked that it wasn't crowded, as many restaurants can be on Mackinac Island. The prices were pretty... More

The restaurant was very pleasant to sit outside and eat at, and our waiter was attentive and excellent. However, I have never had an experience where we have had a poorly cooked meal, pointed it out via the waiter to the manager, and were completely ignored. My wife had a trout dinner, and as she ate a portion of the... More

Maybe the best experience of our trip. The grounds the service the view the service the food the service. I must have liked the service!!! After a bike tour of the island and a large breakfast this was an excellent choice for a mid afternoon snack. so very relaxing.

Stopped for a lunch for the first time at the Bistro and was very pleased with the outdoor dining atmosphere, lunch menu selection and our awesome server, Roxan. The California Panini was delicious, our drinks were fine, but Roxan made the experience more than worth the visit with her attentive service and pleasant personality. We would definitely look for her... More
