Furry friend-friendly and faire

I want to give this one an Excellent 5 star rating, but our initial experience won't allow. We asked shortly after we got off the ferry where we could get away from the franetic fudge shops and memorabilia merchants and were told we should go here, particularly since we had our little Shorkie along... read more

This is a sort of open patio with a bar attached. It is away from the main strip; not far, but just enough to be a little more peaceful. The food was really good, and it was a nice place to relax. My husband had the caprese salad, and it was a little lacking. However, my tandori grilled chicken was... More

Don't order the flatbread! Don't order the veggie wrap! We sat forever in the bar waiting to be served and watched one table leave after not being served and then watched a new table be served before us. The food came out cold and the vegeatarians in our group were served the worst food. The manager was completely unaware or... More

Always enjoy eating at the Bistro! If you come at night, play a round of glow golf ;). This year we enjoyed table-side s'mores. Yummy!!

One of our favorite spots on the island for the setting. It's a beautiful coast atmosphere there with a nice outdoor bar and restaurant. We had drinks and appetizers there. Food was good. It's a casual place.

Loved this restaurant, great service, can't beat the evening colors of the sunset (although the sun sets on the other side of the island, you still get a wonderful view of the lake). Wait for the food was a bit long though.

Sat outside right on the green and had a wonderful experience with our food and waitress Roxanne. The s'mores were the best, a must try! A little off the beaten path but worth the walk. Delicious food and would definitely come back again.

We walked down on a beautiful evening and loved the outdoor bar. Musicians were playing too. If you're just having a drink you have to sit in the bar area versus the umbrella tables. The grounds are beautiful and the views very pretty.

Had great sandwiches and beer on the patio while waiting for Glow Golf for the kids. Loved that the sandwiches came with greens instead of fries. We spend way more at dinner downtown and did not have near the experience.

The food was good, not fantastic, but the view was really cool. We were looking for a dog-friendly restaurant in Mackinac and this was a good choice. Food was pretty expensive for what you get, but it was nice to sit with our dog and have a view of the lake.
