A very good place to have a drink in the evening. I did not eat here but the selection of spirits was astounding! They a wide selection of drinks on tap and if you're up for something a little harder, well they have plenty of that too! Our bartender was very friendly as well,

Nothing negative. Perfect experience except for the rude patron inside with nothing but negative complaints towards the only cook. We had no problems. Food was perfect Josh was our server. You have to hike a little behind the island house but worth it.

My daughter and I stopped in for lunch during our stay on the island and it was wonderful! We ordered two appetizers to split, the hummus plate and the sweet potato fries. The food was delicious and our waitress was great. We sat outside on a busy Saturday, but since the seating is behind the hotel, it was so peaceful... More

We just got home from our trip to Mackinac Island, recounting our best memories, one we have to share regarding the ice House bar and grill. After walking 8 miles and exploring the island, we were very hungry, we stopped at an outdoor grill right by the Starline dock and asked if we could sit outside and eat with our... More

We decided to eat at Ice House during lunch hour, trying to avoid the lines at Main Street eateries. Our "waiter" directed us to a table from behind the counter, menus were dumped on us, and staff seemed just too busy to take care of customers. Our waiter never made eye-contact with us and seemed to be directing other parts... More

We were here for lunch and ordered the fried whitefish & chips and the advertised Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Cheese sandwich. My granddaughter was also going to order a root beer until we were told it's $6.00 a bottle (must be some root beer). The fish looked good but was soggy; we ate only one piece. The sandwich had kind... More

The restaurant is a great secret! If you do not want to wait in lines this is the place to go. The chef (People feeder as he calls it) Josh takes great pride in making sure the food is perfect when served. The bartender Steven prepares the most awesome Bloody Mary on the Planet !!

We went to this restaurant and it was a terrible experience. The setting is nice, and we got seated right away, but we had to wait an EXTREMELY long time for the food, even though there was almost no one else there. When it came, both our dinners were inedible. I had ordered a flatbread pizza. When it came it... More
