We just stopped in for an appetizer and a beer. Sat outside, great water view. Got to see a huge freighter traveling by. We got the spinach, artichoke and bacon dip with pita crisps. It's awesome! A bit pricey but large enough to share between us two. It was enough to fill us up and call it dinner!

The prime rib was great. Could not finish the small. Katherine our waitress was terrific . Well worth the moderate price. Go there.

Anyone who participates in the Chicago to Mackinac Yacht race needs to have on drink at The Pony. Their bloody Mary's are delish!

Enjoyed the Pink Pony Bar & Grill on a beautiful Michigan summer day in July, 2014. We were a weary group of 10 fudgies worn out by the demanding schedule of sight seeing on the island by the time we staggered in to the Pink Pony for a late lunch. It was busy and full so we put our names... More

We had a great afternoon on the island riding bikes. We wanted a good beer and an appetizer. The bacon, spinach artichoke dip was seriously the best I have ever eaten!! Nice bar atmosphere (in the bar area) it had an area away from the bar too.

We had the whitefish, which was very good. Tender with no bones and very good flavor. My wife and I opted for double veggies instead of rice or potato. Service was prompt. There was live entertainment but it was not that great. I would come back though.

We come to Mackinac Island every July. Pink Pony is the only restaurant that we have not had any problems. We usually are a large group. Food and drinks are good. Try their bloody mary or a pink pony beer (Belgium ale). Staff is friendly & attentive. They have live music (Less is More) that did a great job today.

Went to late lunch (1:00 ish), waited 20 minutes for table which was expected. Ate on upper balcony, beautiful view. There are three different areas to sit, and each area has it's own hostess. Each hostess doesn't know how long the wait is in the another seating areas! So decide which dining area you want to visit prior to arrival.... More

They had great waitresses, good music, good drinks. it is THE place to go if you are partying for the Bayview/Mackinac Island Race. EVERYONE goes there first and last. The music is great, but a little on the "folksy" side.
