Three nights in a row!

So good we just kept coming back! Mussels Diablo were amazing - dip your warm, crusty bread in the sauce and you'll be in spicy, buttery heaven. My husband's favorite entree was the Great Lakes Walleye - the fish was perfect and the sauce, again, was amazing. I had the Chargrilled Salmon Salad and... read more

We attended with a group and had a limited menu but....there is no need to serve luncheon salads held in the cooler after lunch at dinner time, they should be freshly made (old salad chief speaking). I had the Yankee Pot Roast that came highly recommended....but the onions were over cooked and the top piece of meat covered a second... More

The food is incredible!! We've loved everything we tried. As many as five of us have ate there multiple times in seven trips over more than ten years and it has always been wonderful! and the wait staff is very helpful too.

It wasn't busy so service was good. The Fortress Club sandwich, Battlefield Feast (chicken breast sandwich) and Lobster Bisque soup was all tasty.

They have their menu outside. Some of the items were priced lower that the menu they give us at the table. Maybe they forgot to change it from last year. The waitress blow it off when I questioned her about it. I had prime rib. It was excellent. My wife enjoyed her white fish dish. We like eating here just... More

My husband and I had a very nice meal. The service was prompt and the waiter attentive. My husband's only complaint was that the water was added to his single malt whiskey instead of bringing it on the side. Portions were a nice size and well seasoned. We were there early evening (about 6) and had a very pleasant experience.

The evening we were there, it was very busy. Generally, when we come across something like this, we'll just sit at the bar and eat. That is what we did in this case. The benefit of doing this is you tend to meet people and that we did. Ended up having a great evening with two couples that were on... More

Their soup was very good, definitely the best part by far. Their salad had a good dressing, but the lettuce and other ingredients weren't the best quality, and not as fresh as I would have liked. Pretty good beer selection too

Everyone seemed to rave about this place so off we went. The service was very sloooooooooowwwwwww and they messed up on our order several times. The view is nice though. I don't think we'd go back again though.

Thank you for the review, but unfortunately we were not open till May 7, 2015 I believe you dined some where on the island that had a water view, which is not us. But we hope you'll stop in and try us the next time your on Mackinac Island More
