Showed up for a late lunch with a large group and we seated right away. Waitress was friendly and explained what the different types of craft beers were and offered to bring a tasting glass. We ordered a variety of items for lunch and everything was very good. Prices were also reasonable given you are on a resort island.

If you are planning to have dinner at Seabiscuit on a Saturday night be prepare to wait, but once you get a table service is quick. If you like smoke fish try the Whitefish Nachos. The serving size is plenty so you could share it as appetizer.

We dined in for breakfast yesterday. It wasn't packed, so we weren't worried about it taking too long. We were served our coffee quickly and ordered. A little while later, I overheard a different waitress tell a customer that the dish I ordered wasn't available. It was more than 10 minutes after that that our waitress came to tell me... More

My husband and I got seated at the large booth at the window. Awesome! Good service. Food was good but not great. Portions were small. Mussels appetizer was good but skimpy especially compared to the remarkably huge and delicious mussels Diablo we had had at the Yankee Rebel the night before. My husband had the pork chops which weren't very... More

Based on recommendations, we tried Seabiscuit Cafe our first night on Mackinac Island. We were underwhelmed. The waitress was a bit curt. Tomato basil soup was ok but a little cold. Sandwiches were pretty good. Atmosphere was fun with the ovie Seabiscuit playing in the background.

The breakfast and service were good, but the guy behind the bar in the morning was so cheerful and so nice! He made the morning more pleasant. This is also the only place I could find on the island open at 6am when I needed coffee, which was very appreciated and a giant plus.

The food is nothing short of fantastic and the people who work there are consistently friendly and efficient year after year. A must-try while you are on the island.

This is a small bar/restaurant that was very busy at noon on a summer Saturday. We arrived at noon and waited about 20-25 minutes for a table for 2. (There were seats available at the bar and several people chose that option). Note: There is no place to sit to wait for a table (other than at the bar), so... More

We stopped in the Seabiscuit Cafe for a late lunch. The place is not very big and it was pretty busy. I ordered the whitefish tacos and the tomato basil soup both very yummy. My fb ordered the footlong hotdog. He really liked it. Our waitress was very good. She not only made recommendations for food off the menu but... More
