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

There was some asparagus but I do not recall seeing a... More

Road tripping from the U.P. to the Lower Peninsula, we opted for lunch on Mackinac Island. With no particular restaurant in mind, we discovered the Yankee Rebel Tavern down one of the side streets. Lovely decor (reflecting the name), fireplace, very cool bar, great wait staff and terrific food. Service was prompt, meals were delicious and the price was very... More

We tried it once for dinner and came back again the next night. The first night we both had fish which was delicious. The second night we had a few appetizers, the pot roast and the ribs. The food was tremendous - healthy portions and definitely home made. The thing that put this over the top for us was the... More

My husband and I had their delicious open face prime rib. Have heard their Yankee Pot Roast is great too. We plan on trying that next time we're on the Island.

Ate there years ago and had never forgotten the place. Still lived up to my expectations on this trip! Have yet to order something there that I haven't liked!
