This place was good. The service was good and my chicken sandwich was also very good. This place made a great lunch and upon my next Mackinac visit, I will likely dine here again.

Ate here for the first time in 2011. The food and service was so terrible then, I was hesitant to try it again. Heard great things about it the entire 2014 season so I gave it another shot. {Sometimes it's hard find an affordable restaurant with great food and service on Mackinac Island.} We ordered the Cajun Steak Bites, the...

We've heard that you wait forever in the summer to eat here because it's so convenient, and my wife and I could see why. It's a nice, safe menu, with decent portions. Nothing especially novel, but well-prepared food. We had prime rib and a chicken dish as are main course. Because the October dinner crowds are so light, people were... More

Cherry Chicken wrap was good to eat. Service was good enough, not really friendly, more business - tell me what you want, I will bring it. Quick on lemonade refills.

It starts with the owner, Patti Ann. A group of 10 friends decided to journey to Mackinac Island to celebrate all of our 60th birthday year. I read reviews online and emailed a few restaurants to set up a "nice" dinner one of the nights we stayed over the weekend. Patti Ann replied that she would love to help us... More

We spotted the Tavern on a side street while looking for a place for lunch. It was busy, but they created seating for the seven of us. Unfortunately, it was right by the door. On a cool October day, we got a gust of cold air every time people came or went. The food and service were both very good.... More

We have eaten at the Yankee Rebel in the past and enjoyed both the food and environment. This time we were very disappointed. We ordered what was on the menu as sauteed seasonal vegetable with asparagus & mushrooms.It turned out to be a dish of mainly tomatoes and onions. There was some asparagus but I do not recall seeing a... More
